I have a karcher electric pressure washer. Inside the gun, there is a long inflexible plastic pipe which connects the inlet hose to the attached nozzle. This plastic pipe has a crack in it, and when I turn on the hose, water gushes from this crack, making the pressure washer itself somewhat less than impressive.
It costs 50 bucks plus shipping to replace the entire gun (no, noplace sells just the part I want), and the pressure washer itself was only slightly more than 100 when I bought it. not wanting to waste another hundred bucks, I thought I would turn to my fellow dopers for advice.
I have already tried putting Krazy Glue in the crack. You see, the pipe has to have some small amount of flex to it, and I think that causes small places inthe superglue to come undone, and it starts leaking again.
I am also trying to use waterproof epoxy (for patcing swiming pools and the like) but I have little confidence that it will hold up under 1600PSI.
Any suggestions would be appreciated…
