  2 Questions
Q: What is the minimum GPM pressure washer that should be used with this surface cleaner?
by Tom Materasso from New York on March 11, 2015

A: Your pressure washer should be rated for at least 4.0 GPM in order to operate this surface cleaner properly. If you don't have the proper flow, the rotary arm won't spin correctly and it will cause streaking.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: What will happen if I go above 4000 psi
by Bo Westberry from Georgia on October 27, 2014

A: The hose will burst and you will permanently damage the unit. This is rated for a MAX 4000 PSI, and you should not use it above that. If you need to use above 4000 PSI, you would need to buy a professional unit rated for that PSI.

Be Whirl-a-way Semi-pro 20" Surface Cleaner (4000 Psi 185°f) Review
The new and improved WAW-20Y has a 20" cleaning diameter and is recommended to be used with pressure washers delivering between 3.5 and 8 gallons per minute. The preferred pressure washer to purchase along with the WAW-20Y is the part # PE-4013HWPSCOMZ (4 GPM at 4000 PSI).

Kind Of Let Down
I try going slow, using a circular motion, making a second pass perpendicular to the first but I always get visible stripes. Not tiger striping from going too fast. But paths showing every pass, like trails almost.

I run this with my Cat DX 66 4000 PSI pump powered by a Honda GX 390. I use this to prep for doing decorative concrete prep and may have to stop using it if I can't figure out how to get a consistent looking was. Also, the trigger lock broke on first use, but that doesn't bother... more
Pros: Light Weight
Cons: Difficult To Use

Tyler,
I'm sorry you're not getting the results you anticipated- I can see how uniform results would help with decorative finishes. You may get smoother results if you rinse the surface with a regular pressure washer nozzle in-between passes- this would remove the dirt loosened by the first pass so it doesn't get pushed around into trails by the second pass. That would let the second, perpendicular pass get the last bit of dirt out of the surface for a smooth finish.

I realize this adds more time to the job, but I hope the quality of the end result makes it worthwhile.

Be Whirl-a-way
Good product, saved time for sure, no zebra stripes, adjustable height of tips- Watch out for objects that stick up so they don't hit tips as they spin.

If you use hot water -well don't with the factory o-rings. I used hot water and the o-ring lasted maybe two minutes. I had to replace it with a more durable one which Whirl-A-Way was awesome and told me what to replace it with- great support staff. But o-ring went out on a Saturday so I had to finish job next week.

If you have a 3500... more

This Is One Of The Best Surface Cleaners
Excellent surface cleaner. I used it to clean driveways, decks, wood, stone, pavers, anything and it does a great job with a 3800 psi adjustable pressure washer.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

This surface cleaner is very easy to assemble right out the box. The performance met all my expectations and some, I was very impressed and pleased with my product and will continue to purchase items from this site also because of the prompt arrival.

I definitely recommend this product!

Very Disappointed Customer!
When I bought this product I expected it to be a very professional quality and that it seems to be until the first 20 minutes I used it on my DeWalt 3800 psi pressure washer the hose burst then I waited about a month and a half for new hose. When I did get it it was the wrong hose that the company sent me so I had to spend extra money to fit this new hose onto the Surface Cleaner.

When I pressure wash driveways and walkways I have to go over the areas twice to get the cleanliness that I... more
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Unreliable, Durability, I have to go over areas twice to get it clean. Definitely not fast

Jeffrey,
I am sorry you're disappointed with the performance of the surface cleaner. I see from your file that we put you in touch with the folks at BE a little over a month ago when you called us about the lack of performance, and a contact from 8/3 where we're having a piece sent to you from BE- I'm hoping that's the piece of plastic that came loose.

The Specs we post for this unit say it will take at least 4 GPM, up to 8 GPM for best results. If your unit doesn't produce 4 GPM then a consumer-grade unit like the one you mention (we sell them, too) might work best, even if you need to replace it more often since the components aren't as durable.

It's not likely that the "lines" would be clogged with a surface cleaner. What commonly reduces performance is grit or debris that blocks the spray jets. Clogs can usually be cleared by back-flushing the nozzles and cleaning them with a fine wire or paperclip. You will have fewer clogs if you don't push down on the surface cleaner as you move it across the surface you're cleaning.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Great Product!
One review I saw before buying my surface cleaner boasted an 80% reduction in cleaning time which I couldn't believe. After my first minute of use, I thought they were underestimating! What ills some additional time was I had to switch back to my old gun to clean off the dirt the surface unit removed so 80% is a pretty good estimate.

I also use this in the garage which one cold never do with a standard gun. I also didn't understand what folks were saying about using the unit close to flower... more

Worked Great For Me
I live in Washington state and we have alot of moss and dirt on walkways and driveways that needs to be removed each year. I do the job twice a year.

My neighbor bought a General Pump 20" Prosumer last year. I used it and it worked great and almost bought one but our neighbors like to borrow things and I wanted to make sure I got back my own unit so I bought the BE 20" Surface Cleaner. It worked great and now we won't mix up the grey and yellow.

I have a Simpson pressure... more
