Soft washing pumps are pumps that operate at a lower pressure. This allows for a more delicate
cleaning technique that can be required for cleaning jobs that require more care and where a
high-pressure washer could cause damage.
Whilst high-pressure water pumps have high air pressure and project water at a greater impact;
soft wash pumps provide a lower-impact alternative.
