Even the most powerful pressure washer in the world wouldn’t be much use without the right nozzle. That’s why Hotsy manufactures its own line of pressure nozzles with a variety of different orifice sizes and spray patterns. These interchangeable nozzles make Hotsy’s pressure washers even more versatile, so you can use them for a wide variety of application. These nozzles are color coded according to their spray pattern for easy identification.

A brief explanation of Hotsy's Pressure Nozzles

red - zero degree

This nozzle delivers a narrow, precise stream of water—perfect for cutting through caked-on mud on heavy equipment.

yellow - 15 degree


This nozzle delivers a narrow, precise stream of water—perfect for cutting through caked-on mud on heavy equipment.

green - 25 degree


This offers a wider spray pattern that’s ideal for cleaning large, uninterrupted surfaces.

white - 40 degree


Finally, Hotsy’s white nozzle offers the widest spray pattern of all. These nozzles can be useful for rinsing detergent off of equipment, or cleaning surfaces that might be damaged by a high-pressure narrow spray pattern.


Remember: It’s important to choose not only the right spray pattern, but also the right orifice size. Choosing a nozzle with an orifice that’s too large will compromise water pressure, while an orifice that’s too small can cause damage to the pressure washer’s motor. Be sure to check the number located on the side of the nozzle to ensure you choose the right size for your pressure washer. You can also consult the Hotsy Parts Catalog for reference.
