Can Pressure Washers Really Replace Jet Skis?

Jet skis have become pretty much the pinnacle of high-pressure entertainment. And, to be fair, it’s easy to see why. The moment these things start lifting you up in the air, and you start flying, you feel like a superhero!

But the problem with jet skis, as many of us know, is that these things can be pretty expensive. Once you start to fantasize about flying around in a jet ski and letting your inner Clark Kent loose, reality soon smacks you in the face with a simple fact – you probably can’t afford one. 

Still, a lot of us have found interesting ways around this problem. And this could just be the solution you’ve been looking for if you have jet ski ambitions. 

Recently, a YouTube content creator known as “I Did A Thing” posted a video where he chose to try the jet ski experience. The sole distinction was his choice to opt for two pressure washers instead of a jet ski.

According to the content creator, he had seen a lot of people flying and levitating with pressure washers. So, he decided to test this thing out and see whether pressure washers really could get people off the ground.

So, he went out and got some industrial-strength machines and put the whole hypothesis to the test. Pressure washers are pretty awesome. They emit water at significant pressure levels, and if you’re not careful, you could get yourself injured. So, it’s easy to believe that they will actually make you fly. 

After testing the washers on a few watermelons and generally fooling around, I Did A Thing finally got to the main business. And, while the washers actually did levitate him, issues with controlling the washer meant that it was almost impossible to maintain this rise.
