You adjust the pressure by changing the tips at your gun. Have to know the gpm of your machine, bigger tips =less pressure

I need to dial it down to at least 300 for carpet. Its a 1600 psi pressure washerv

Calm down Patrick Knapp. I know you just got out of the military but you will soon learn this is civilian life and it's much different than the military. I might be lost here Dub Henning but why would you pressure wash carpet?

I wonder why you would go through the time trouble and expenses of converting a pressure washer when Steambite on Texas has a demo Water Otter all ready for what you need for just over $700. I would return your pressure washer for a refund and call Steambite.

You're getting a lot of flack but if you need something with more PSI, it's a legitimate method. Not sure it will go low enough for carpet though
