Default 3200 PSI enough?

My local store has great deal on M-I-TM pressure washer 3200 PSI, is that enough to clean siding on 2 level houses?

How many GPM? This is more important than PSI when it comes to washing a house.

You want more gpm. Try for a 4 gpm if possible. 2.4 is lower than ideal. I could get by with a 3.x gpm, but ideally 4 gpm in a portable washer. More for trailer or truck mount.

Our 2.5 gpm wouldn't hit the top of the second story. The 3 PW's we now have are 4-6 gpm and all down streamers that will hit 3 stories.. I hope to not climb anymore ladders to PW.

That sprayer you bought doubles as a pressure washer.

GPM is king for at least a 4 gpm the more the better,
