    Hey guys check out the Wall Mounted Pressure Washer System I have in my garage. I’ve also listed everything you need with the exception of the PW to do a set up like this. It’s freaking awesome and makes washing the Tacoma so much more enjoyable.

    Good stuff, I did a similar project at the beginning of last year and I can't recommend it enough. I think I got that same inlet hose from Amazon. Any body reading, if you do a similar setup to this one of the most valuable components there is the swivel on the gun. That alone will improve the user experience of using a pressure washer ten fold especially if you've got a cheap PW hose.

    Saw that and wondered if it was a GFCI. When I installed my setup I knew I had to upgrade the outlet to a 20 amp because when using a foam cannon you can easily tip the current over 15 amps. I'm pretty sure you can install a regular outlet fed off a GFCI which OP may have.

    That outlet was not GFCI because it single outlet dedicated to the sprinkler timer, so I changed it out to a 15 amp GFCI. The one with the reset buttons.

    gorram - just a FYI because I don’t know your internal electrical wiring or your breaker set up but you mentioned you changed your 15 amp outlet to a 20 amp outlet. It’s not as simple as that to get 20 amps from the breaker to the outlet. 1. The breaker in the box has to be 20 amp. 2. The wiring has to be 12 gauge.

    Correct that is what I did. To be more specific since I was tapping the water supply for the PW inlet where the water heater was I went ahead and tapped hot too and installed a hot/cold hose bib. The best spot in the small utility shed was directly over an existing outlet. No way was that going to work, luckily this outlet was on it's own breaker. Swapped it for a 20 amp, already had plenty of 12 awg on hand so i moved it to another wall where I could have two outlets since I was also installing a retractable power cord reel.

    Now when the hose bib does an inevitable drip it will be dropping right onto a metal box that has bare wire hanging out of it where I pulled the receptacle out. Dead of course but it looks nice and ominous.
