Customer Question

Karcher Pressure Washer - loss of pressure,leaking water from body of Kercher - who can repair
Submitted: 3 years ago.

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.

Hi sorry to hear about this problem.
Just about any auto repair shop can do this for you if it is bad fitting.
If the body is leaking, your best bet is to take this to any shop that specializes in TIG or even MIG welding. They can seal this up for you good as new:-)
Since this may take some time or you may need me further, if you will rate my service today as good or better The system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you so your question will not close or time out and we will be able to work together no matter how long it takes to solve this issue.
Thank you

Hi - unfortunately I am not quite clear what you mean - I live in Edinburgh, Scotland and do not understand what TIG or MIG mean.


 


I am elderly and am really just trying to find a company name and telephone number to contact.

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.
Hi Margaret,
MIG and TIG are two types of welding excellent for fixing this.
The best of the two would be TIG, its a smaller scale and can do a good job of getting into tight spots.
Depending exactly where the leak is they may need to disassemble the unit a bit to have a clear shot at this.
What you can do is search for any local welding shop, they will know what I mean and for sure they will know how to fix this for you:-)
Thank you

My Yellow Pages shows three options under Welders ;


Pipework Contractors


Stainless SteelMetalWorks


Steel Fabrications


 


which one would be best?

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.

Hi Margaret Probably you will need to check around because you don't need anything big, its small project.
Lots of auto repair stations could do this for you as well because they do welding, but its a matter of whether they want to do it for you.
Where I live in the US we have many small welding shops.
Your best bet is to call some of what you found and ask them who would do this for you.
Unfortunately the only way to fix this is by welding due to the high pressure.

I tried to 'phone the people in yellow pages, but that was no help whatsoever - I gave up and have bought a new Karcher.


 


I honestly feel that you were no help at all, but am loath to put down a bad rating. I thank you, but sorry you did not help


 


best regards


Margaret
