One of the most common problems in pressure cleaners of every make is premature pump failure, most often caused by cavitation.

 

So, what is cavitation on a pressure washer system?

 

Cavitation is the formation & accumulation of bubbles in the pumping chamber on your high pressure pump & when these bubbles are put under pressure they collapse or burst which can create tiny but violent implosions inside the water effecting the surrounding parts.
