K1 Flow Actuated Unloader Valve 2.3gpm to 10.8gpm 3600psi
Unloader Valve - Flow Actuated Unloader
Flow unloaders can be sensitive to nozzle orifice sizes and extremely long hoses that restrict the flow when the trigger is pulled. These valves leave no pressure trapped in the hose while in bypass and build pressure when the trigger is pulled so hoses are more manageable and there is no kick back.

**NOTE on Unloaders**
Unloader valves are one of the most important safety devices on a pressure washer system. It is recommended that an experienced mechanic installs the unloader and sets the operating and spike pressure properly with a pressure gauge. Failure to install and set the unloader properly could result in a very dangerous situation causing severe damage to the pump and possibly the operator.
