Using the same chart to replace the tips in a surface cleaner you will determine the GPM and PSI of your machine and also you will need the number of tips in the surface cleaner as that number we will divide once we determine the tip size.

For Example, if we are running 4 GPM at 4000 PSI the chart will show we would need a 4 tip. However, let’s say we are running a Whisper Wash with two jets. That number 4 tip needs to be divided by two. So, you would be purchasing #2 tips for your surface cleaner to have it work optimally.
