    What’s the best one stop online shop.

    My first Nilfisk was a C110 (we all start somewhere ). As I'm sure you know the pump is meant to stop once you release the trigger. After about six months of use (weekend warrior, not commercial use) it would constantly run. Not the end of the world but annoying and not normal all the same. I've subsequently replaced that with a C125 . However, that unit failed as it started leaking from within the plastic body (housing/case - whatever the technical term is). I didn't strip it down but I can only assume that the pump/seal failed. It would still operate but once you released the trigger and the pump stopped water would leak from the unit. Again not the end of the world but still a failure. In that case, I suspect Nilfisk were aware of the issue as they merely sent a FOC replacement and didn't even want the old one back and/or inspected. Finally, I had an issue with the gun developing a leak from the seal/joint that allows for rotational movement. It took a month to resolve as the OEM replacement was "out of stock until April". I got an upgraded gun as a result. I'm not for a second saying they're bad products and I've always championed them but whether it's just bad luck or standards are dropping I'm not sure.
  3. Gyeon Bathe or Bathe + for me. Bathe + is infused with Si02 coating which will enhance gloss and offer beading - saves much time in winter with waxing or quick detailing after drying. In summer or in direct sunlight i will use Bathe and the + version will smear if it starts to dry on the car before you get chance to rinse.

    I’ve had 2 karchers that ended up doing the pulsing/leaking trick. Both out of warranty. That’s why I went nilfisk. It just has a better feel and general reputation.

    I just reached out directly to Nilfisk. I have all the relevant contact details and email address(es) if anyone needs them

    Wow. That’s helpful to know. And I completely take back what I said based on that alone. I thought I’d be on amazon customer service country with mine if it goes wrong.

    Welcome to the forum! As above, TPS is the place to go.

    What issues did you have with your Nilfisk unit James? I’d be interested to know. I’m looking at various alternatives and that was just the obvious choice, but want something that isn’t going to give me the headaches that karcher have. I currently have 3 different karchers and only one of the working and that pulses and is leaking. @Wo-Wo Neil, didn’t you buy a Kranzle a while back? How how you found it?

    where do you get your resin?

    Cheers Becs, I'll whip out the TDS later and see what the readings are but I suspect I'll need to replace mine sooner rather than later. Look forward to hearing your comments on the MB151 once you've had the chance to try it.

    Do you have to maintain a ceramic coating? Not really. Some people are happy with the protection it gives and leave it at that. However, it's inevitable that it will degrade over time. If you want to prolong and/or enhance the coating then a ceramic maintenance product, while not very cheap, will be beneficial. Just something to think about and I thought it was worth mentioning

    I’m just coming to the end of a bag of Unger which has been fine (I find it better than Tulsion MB115). But I’ve decided to give the Indion MB151 mentioned above a go next, see how that compares to the other two, so I’ll be buying a back of that next. I’ll feedback on it. And then I’ll know which of those three I prefer and stick with it.

    As I alluded to above I've had to contact Nilfisk direct due to some issues. Where I purchased it from was irrelevant, I just provided the Amazon invoice (as proof of purchase) and dealt with Nilfisk directly. I wouldn't fall into the trap of assuming that buying directly from Nilfisk qualifies you for superior warranty support.

    I hadn’t thought of post wash maintenance [emoji2955]

    Hi All

    Impulse buys are best kind. I’ve got previous. Many years ago we went to look for a car, stopped of at a new build development for a nosey, and bought a house instead.

    Yes, agreed you can get it cheaper on amazon but supplied by nilfisk direct with their warranty backing rather than amazon - I’d pay a bit more. And I bought one from amazon. At about the price you said above.

    Due to the nature of online forums, everyone has their opinion. As such I don't think there is a definitive "best" shampoo. That said if it's ceramic coated you won't go far wrong with the shampoos I listed above. Have you given thoughts to maintaining the coating after washing? Gyeon Cure, CarPro Reload, Adams Ceramic Boost, gtechniq c2v3, IGL Premier are all good options.

    It's not that cheap. The model up, C125, is routinely on sale at Amazon. I got it for £82.97. https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Nilfisk-Pressure-Washer-Patio-Cleaning/product/B01N34KUDG Granted it' over £200 now but Nilfisk constantly run promotions via Amazon so if anyone is in the market for a Nilfisk just make a habit of checking every now and again.

    Excellent question. I’ve got a ceramic coating: Wolfgang Uber ceramic.

    I’d snap their arm off for this one at that price!

    What's the current consensus on replacement resin? I'm mindful opinions and options may have changed since this thread was last updated. Any fresh thoughts Becs?

    I was a big Nilfisk advocate for reasons already mentioned above. However, I'm now on my fourth unit in two years. Granted there may be some bad luck involved and granted Nilfisk customer service has been good for the most part but it's left a sour taste. I'm going to get a Kranzle in the summer and be done with it.

    I find the "best" shampoo for one person is not necessarily the best for another. For example, is your car waxed? Coated? No LSP at all? Mines ceramic coated, as a result, I shy away from anything with gloss additives, infused waxes etc.. Personally, and from experience, I'd go for Gyeon Bathe (not plus), CarPro Reset, or Adams.
