Surface cleaner with my pressure washer

larrynkyJuly 25, 2011

I have a 2750 psi Excell power washer. I am looking for a surface cleaner that will help to speed the cleaning of my concrete drive and walks. I have seen a Briggs model at Lowes for $69 and another model from Whirl-A-way on several websites. This model runs about $100-$110. Has anyone used either of these? Any reason to spend the extra for the Whirl-A-Way? Any opinion are appreciated.

I'm very impressed with the cleaning power of bleach on concrete, also with the power of 20 years of a drip of water...
Concrete can look pretty, if colorful stones are used in the mix.
I just use straight water....generally VG results. But I do have some concrete which seems to be "un-cleanable" ...a blackish permanent stain..
IMO, the more powerful, the better...for concrete...
So, try straight bleach with a high pressure water chaser.
