After I had sent another mail to the 3 email id's mentioned below by 'thoma', I got a reply from Tony saying the query had been forwarded to the concerned department and would receive a feedback on Monday (Sorry couldn't update as I was travelling).

Attaching two screen shots of the mail I received from Karcher India. Quite surprise by their response.

How can two guys from the same company not know what is to be replied and how to reply?!

Is there no cooperation or SOP of product knowledge?

Mr. Tony says - Sorry sir, the water filter must be purchased separately (Money making technique I see) whereas Mr Nadeem khan says - it is in the box but already comes fit to the inlet hence it is not in the box.

I did write a mail showing them their standards in their knowledge of their own products sold.

Yes buddy, we did discover that the water filter (white colour) is fit from factory and need NOT be procured separately.

Since it was mentioned it present in the box but it wasn't so we were paranoid.

From ^^^ and previous posts, looks like you are okay with the Karcher product. Please could you let me know if I should buy it online or look for it in physical stores. Any implications on warranty -based on sales channel?

Advice you to buy it physically from a store rather than online. Buy it from Metro cash and carry or any place that deals with automobiles. Warranty will be honoured if bought from any standard store.

Guys I'm planning to buy Black & Decker PW1570TD pressure washer for washing my car.

It's priced at 9408 INR in Flipkart.

Any reviews or experiences with this product? And any other alternatives in this price range?

Thanks.

- Need to use a bucket of water as a water source. Do NOT have a water connection nearby in our building - important.
- If any washer has a inbuilt water storage system, then preferable.
- Not horribly expensive (i'd prefer sub 15k range)
- needs to clean the muck so pressure should be good.

Also give indicative prices if possible.
You could also look at http://resqtech.in/products/ - they have submersible as well as inbuilt pressure washers in the range of 2-6k

I recently bought the resqtech 25 litre 12 volt car washer for Rs.5395. If one doesnt have high expectations of the product, you will be satisfied. It doesn't have the force of a regular washer that you connect to the normal power outlet. What it does is that it significantl reduces the washing time. Earlier I used to take an hour washing my car by carrying water in bucket. With this I am able to do it in half an hour. It is convenient. Good for places where no power outlet is available. Though the pressure of jet is just average, it is sufficient to get the job done

How do you route the power cable into the car without having water seep through?

Hey thanks for the link.

I have seen the product and it just doesn't have the power to remove the muck from our jeeps after an offroad session.

Currently trying to get a tap connection in my existing garage from where i can run the hose. Will be helpful for other uses as well in the future.

If you can get a tap connection then even a basic pressure washer from skill / bosch / karchar will meet your requirements of blasting the muck off from paint and underbody. Costly machines give little or no addon advantage for your requirement.

Dont close the door completely. Just one click of the door will be sufficient. This will prevent damage to cord, and prevent water from seeping in, as rubber beading around the inside of the door only will be acting. Hope you got tge point.

Guys, I went ahead and bought the Black & Decker PW 1570TD car washer.

The problem is my hose pipe fits very tightly on the tap outlet and not so tight but firm on the pump inlet (Image attached).

So when i stop the Water gun the hose pipe pops off from the inlet.

Would getting a smaller diameter pipe do the trick, or do i need any attachments at the tap end/pump end?

What do you use with your pump?

Did you try reducing the pressure on pipe by closing the tap a bit?
However, I use a combination of the green garden hose adapters in the picture attached, on both ends of the hose. It clicks and locks on.Buying & Using a Pressure Washer-imageuploadedbyteambhp1405839611.477446.jpg
