Best Pressure Washer Wands

By London Fog

October 10, 2020


Cleanliness is important, and it can be easy to achieve provided you have the right tools and equipment to hand.

Where it can become a little trickier is when you want to clean hard to reach places. And that’s where pressure washer wands come in.

Pressure washer wands, also known as pressure washer extension wands, are a very handy piece of kit, that can help you to clean roofs, sidings and windows.

You can do it all without needing to climb some clunky ladder, and you can direct the water into tight spots, which means less scrubbing.

Pressure washer extension wands are soo much better than hose extensions, because they give you full control of exactly where that jet of water is headed.

There are actually quite a lot of pressure washer wands out on the market at the moment, so we’ve been leafing through trying to pick out the best.

After much deliberation, we came up with our top 5 pressure washer wands, and our reviews on them are coming up very shortly.

Please note that while our product selection does sometimes include accompanying accessories, we have not included any pressure washer guns.

After that, we’ve also got a buying guide for you which goes through everything you might want to think about before you buy.

But that’s not all. We then go onto following up the buying guide with yet another handy section - we answer some of your most frequently asked questions.

OUR TOP PICK

Twinkle Star Pressure Washer Extension Wand Set, 8 ft Replacement Lance with 5 Nozzle Tips, 4000 PSI

When we saw just how well this set was selling, we had to see what all the fuss was about. 

In this set, you get 6 lengths of extension wands, each almost identical, and 15 inches long. You can attach as many of these wands as you like to your pressure washer gun, one after the other. When all wands are in place, you get an 8 foot lance.

It’s easy to put together. The 1/4” male quick plug connects to the pressure washer gun, and you can keep attaching more wands in this formation until you’re ready to place a 1/4" female quick plug nozzle tip on the end.

There is also a curved wand, which is perfect for clearing your guttering.

And you get 5 nozzle tips, all stainless steel, and all color coded to help you remember which pattern of water flow you get with each.

The red one sends water in a single jet stream, to give the most focused cleaning power. The yellow sprays water 15 degrees out from the center, green 25 degrees, white 40 degrees and then the black one sends water 65 degrees from it’s center.

The extension wands are made from durable stainless steel and brass, and can handle water pressure of up to 4000 psi.

You also get 10 O-rings included which help to keep the component parts in place.

Pros:

  • Good, well established brand
  • Comes with 5 different nozzles
  • Includes a curved extension wand

Cons:

  • The end piece that bends into the gutter swivels so can get messy

EDITORS CHOICE

Tool Daily Pressure Washer Extension Wand, 90 Inch Power Washer Lance, 1/4 Inch Quick Connect, M22, 4000 PSI

This pressure washer extension wand set comes from Tool Daily, a company whose sole focus is on producing top quality pressure washer accessories.

It works in very much the same way as our number one pick, so is very easy to set up, you just screw each piece in by hand.

There are 6 individual wands, and you can choose how many of them you want to attach to the pressure washer gun.

Each wand is 15 inches in length, to give you a maximum wand length of 90 inches.

Each wand is made from durable stainless steel and brass. It’s built to handle pressures  of up to 4000 psi.

There’s a nice rubber grip on one of the wands, which is great when you’re holding the pressure washer gun with one hand and want to help guide or balance the wand.

It’s proved pretty popular with customers, earning a rating of 4 and a half stars out of a possible 5 on the Amazon page.

There’s not really a lot of negative things to say about it to be honest, it just lacks some of the additional features that you get with our number one pick, like the different nozzles and the curved extension.

Pros:

  • Good, well established brand
  • Built to withstand pressure 
  • Highly rated by customers

Cons:

  • No nozzles included
  • No curved extension

BEST VALUE

B E PRESSURE 85.206.424L Telescoping Wand, 4-Stage, 24' Length, 4000 psi, 200 Degree F, 8.0 GPM, Black/Yellow

What we like about this telescopic pressure washer extension wand is that there are no separate parts, so you haven’t got to take the time to put it together to start using it. 

Instead, all you have to do is attach it to your pressure washer gun and extend it to the length you need, and you’re good to go.

It’s 7 feet long when collapsed, but it stretches to quite a considerable length, as far as 24 feet in fact. When you ‘ve set it to the length you want you can lock it into place, and off you go. You can wash the walls of two storey buildings if you want to.

Although it doesn’t come with a curved attachment for guttering in with the price, you can buy one separately (Amazon has them), all made by the same company, and at a very reasonable, affordable price.

You may also be interested in buying a support harness to go with it too, also available on Amazon.

Of course, the drawback to getting a telescopic wand like this one is the price. They are invariably over $100. If you’ve got the budget, though, it's certainly worth thinking about.

Pros:

  • All in one piece
  • No setting up
  • Very long length

Cons:

  • Premium product at a premium price
  • Other accessories sold separately

STYDDI Pressure Washer Extension Wand Set, 90 Inch Power Washer Extension Replacement Wands Lance with 5 Nozzle Tips, Curved Rod, 4000 PSI

This pressure washer extension wand set works in very much the same way as our number one pick, so is very easy to set up, you just screw each piece in by hand.

There are 6 individual wands, and you can choose how many of them you want to attach to the pressure washer gun. Each wand is 15 inches in length, to give you a maximum wand length of 90 inches.

Each wand is made from durable stainless steel and brass. It’s built to handle pressures  of up to 4000 psi.

In fact it’s almost identical to our number one pick, the Twinkle Star Pressure Washer Extension Wand Set. There is one crucial difference though, rather than having a curved extension you can choose whether or not to use, one of the wands itself has a slight curve.

They come from different brands, and there also seems to be differences in price, and differences in the number of customer reviews available online, and minor differences in the nature of the customer feedback.

There are some handy tips on using the set right on the Amazon page.

Pros:

  • Comes with 5 different nozzles
  • Includes a curved extension rod

Cons:

  • There are some mixed customer reviews online

Best Pressure Washer Wands Buying Guide

OK, so, here’s everything you need to think about before settling on which pressure washer extension wand or kit to buy.

Required Length

The first and foremost thing you need to think about, is exactly how long the pressure washer extension needs to be.

This can vary quite considerably depending on exactly what you want to do with it.

Easy to Set Up

Having to spend time correctly setting your equipment up can be a nuisance. But luckily all of the pressure washer extension wands in our top 5 picks are very easy and straightforward to put together.

They are either composed of quarter inch wands that can be screwed together by hand male to female, or they are simply one piece that you just screw onto your pressure washer gun.

Accessories

You can get quite a lot of accessories for pressure washer wands. This is usually in the form of a nozzle set.

Or you can often buy the extension wands as part of a kit when you buy a new pressure washer gun. You can even buy them with a special harness!

Maximum Pressure

If you like to do your pressure washer at a particular high pressure (which you probably do, since that would be why you bought one in the first place) then you need to ensure that the pressure washer extension wand can withstand said pressure. 

For a gas pressure washer, you should look for an extension wand that can ideally handle 4000 psi.

Weight

The weight of a pressure washer extension wand will affect how comfortable or uncomfortable it is to use.

Unfortunately though the weight of pressure wands is not usually given in the product descriptions you find online.

Budget

If you’ve been checking the prices as you ‘ve been going along, you may have noticed some similarities in prices.

A single pressure wand tends to cost about $10-$12, a pressure washer wand extension kit generally tends to come in at just under $30, and finally at the other end of the spectrum, telescopic pressure wands generally cost over $100.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best pressure washer wand?

As you can see from our product selection, we made the Twinkle Star Pressure Washer Extension Wand Set our number 1 pick, but that was largely because it comes as an entire set, complete with several handy accessories like the curved extension attachment, and the 5 different nozzles.

If we were looking at pressure wands alone, not part of sets, then we’d say that the B.E. Pressure Telescoping Wand, and if it weren’t for the expensive price, we may have made it our number one pick.

Are pressure washer wands interchangeable?

Pressure washer wands for gas pressure washers are generally pretty much interchangeable. But not always. 

But don’t worry, you don’t have to go out and buy yourself a whole new pressure washer. You can instead buy special kits of adapters so that you can attach a universal wand to an odd pressure washer.

Are all pressure washer guns the same?

With the right equipment of threaded and quick connection fittings you can make any pressure washer gun 100% universal.

You definitely don't need to buy replacements from the same brand as your pressure washer.
