Could this be used as a jet wash?
The Telescopic Spray Gun Plus 140 has a jet spray for cleaning, but this is not as strong as a pressure washer and the power will also depend on your water pressure. Please see product features for more details about this gun on the Telescopic Spray Gun Plus 140 product page.
How do you change the functions?

Can I connect a hose directly to the gun or do I need a connector?
You will need a connector. We recommend using an Aquastop Connector.
What connector do I need so that I can use this with my Hozelock hose?
If your hose already has Hozelock compatible connectors on both ends, you can connect this gun directly to it - it will simply "Click & Connect" onto the hose connector.
If you have no connectors fitted to your hose, an Aquastop Connector is recommended.
How do I adjust the flow rate?
You can adjust the flow control with the red lever on the top of the spray gun. To decrease the flow rate, push this red lever to the left. To increase the flow rate, push the lever to the right.

How do I turn the gun off?
Please check the following:

My gun occasionally leak. How do I stop it from leaking?
1. Check the connection. Ensure you have used the correct hose end connector to connect your gun to the hose. An Aquastop Connector is recommended.
2. Is the gun dirty or blocked? If it is, please soak in a 50/50 mix of warm water and vinegar, as the problem may be related to either a rubber seal or a build-up of mineral deposits or sediment in the gun. Ideally the gun should be soaked for 30–40 minutes.
4. Check the water flow - this may need to be reduced.
