It still blows my mind that back in 2017, I had this crazy idea to create a wall mount solution I’d hope would change the game. We’ve certainly done that with the Kranzle K1322TS Custom Install Solution, and now we have an economic high-performing King in town, the Active 2.0 pressure washer. This freaking thing is next level and perfect if you want to experience quality at a lower cost. 

I've been thinking about doing this for as long as I can remember. I've wanted a dedicated wash bay for over 20 years. I thought it would be the most fantastic thing in the world to be able to wash cars whenever I wanted and not have to drag out a hose every time to get the job done. That same year (2017), I started searching everywhere to find a solution that would not only be suitable but amazing. 

Here we are today, with what I’d consider the next best thing in the car detailing, pressure washing world. This pressure washer can do up to 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute). That’s just insane. I’m not replacing this for my Kranzle, but I’m not opposed to using this as a backup if something happens to my Kranzle. I’d also say for those of you who are looking to buy a Kranzle and due to supply chain issues can’t get one right away from us, I’d suggest picking up one of these in the interim. 

What’s Different About the Active 2.0?

Outside of the design change, which is fantastic, the pump has been completely reengineered. The objective when these guys were building this thing was longevity. Most of these other cheap pressure washers on the market (Greenworks, Ryobi, SunJoes) have a lifespan of 100 hours; James and his team set out to increase that lifespan to 200-250 hours. This revamp required some upgrades of the internal components to achieve the outcome they set out to accomplish. 

Key Points:

  • Twice the life than the VE52/56
  • Better performance than the VE52/56 as a result of the longevity upgrades

Not Built To A Price Point 

This pressure washer wasn’t built to a price point but instead permanence. If left up to me, I’m making a machine that’ll cost 3,000+ dollars, but I understand a pressure washer in that price range won’t appeal to the masses. Although I have zero interest in appealing to the masses, I believe in the progression philosophy where someone comes in the door at entry-level and works their way up to an ultimate level. This unit is exactly that; a worthy choice of a pressure washer but not one you’re going to have forever.

You’ll wind up keeping this unit for a few years or less, but then you’ll want to upgrade to an AR630 or a Kranzle at some point. The beauty of having an install solution is that you can transfer the parts and fittings to your new pressure washer. Simply take this one down and put your new one up.  

Performance, Oh Man!

When they built this machine, they didn’t make it with performance as the top priority; it was longevity. I’m repeating myself when I talk about longevity, but I want you to understand the vision and motivation behind this thing. The performance is/was a byproduct of the overall goal.

If there’s anything you’ll see me smile about when it comes to this unit, it’s the performance. We were able to get 2.0+ GPM with a 6.0 and 7.0 nozzle. I’d say this is the sweet spot because that also put us around 990/1000 PSI, which is what we want for car washing.  

During our testing, we found that we don’t want to run this machine with a 1.1 orifice on the foam cannon; you’ll surely trip your circuit. I used a 1.5 orifice instead with my normal 150 mL of car soap and 600 mL of water dilution in the foam cannon, and we had great foam, but more importantly, we’re running the machine safer. If you have a dedicated 15 or 20-amp circuit, you’d want to run a 1.25. 

My recommendation:

  • For maximum safety and guaranteed function, you want the 1.5 orifice on your foam cannon.
  • For maximum foam and if you have a 15 or 20-amp circuit, you want the 1.25 orifice. I’d tell you to spend the few bucks and get the 15 or 20-amp, so you can use a 1.25.
  • For car washing, I am going to use a 7.0 orifice nozzle. That is what I prefer. What I really like about the Active 2.0, however, is that you can use a variety of nozzles to tailor the pressure to the task you are doing. In our testing, we found that you can go down to a 3.5 orifice nozzle for high-pressure cleaning and up to a 7.0 for lower-pressure cleaning. If you want, grab the nozzle kit we have for the Active 2.0, so you can decide for yourself what nozzle you like. 

The Design

I love the minimalistic look of this thing. It’s subtle and just clean, with no unnecessary bulk. Tommy (my Product Development Director) pointed out something that I think is good to know: the relationship between the inlet and the outlet. On the VE52, the inlet was on the back, making it difficult for people to mount that machine on the wall. This required extra adapters that didn’t make this setup a complete solution. Now, we have the Active 2.0 with the inlet and outlet on the front and side. I’m sure many people will appreciate this because they can now set their pressure washer up in a way that is efficient and looks good.

This unit has 5-plunger tech where it’s still radial-axial with a wobble plate. The wobble plate is connected to the drive shaft to push pistons back and forth, creating suction and then pushing water out—the amazingness in the Active 2.0 is that it delivers high pressure with a greater amount of water.  

Key Points:

  • The unit is very small - great for wall mounting or storage
  • The pressure switch is on the front
  • Inlet/outlet is on the front and side (you can wall mount this puppy with ease)

This solution is designed for the obsessed, not regular people. I will save you a ton of money, trial and error, and waiting for parts to arrive and get you 90% of the way there. But, you are going to have to work for the result. Picking the parts and pieces is the hard part, but you may need to hire a plumber or electrician and make a few trips to the hardware store to get this to fit your particular garage. I did a video with Mike F. on how to install this solution; it may help you and them sort this out.  

Over the years, I’ve tested several pressure washers. This is the nicest unit I've used at this price point, by a long shot.

Do yourself a favor and have the best experience washing your car using this install solution.

FAQ & Support

Installation Tips
“Custom” is the keyword. It really depends on your needs, the utilities that you’re working with, and how you’re going to have your end solution setup. You really want to get with a plumber if you need to because everything is going to be completely custom for your specific setup in regards to cut lengths and where everything is going to go. This package gets you about 90% of the way there, but that other 10% takes a bit of work to figure out. To give you a head start here are some dimensions for what we have on our wall here: 

  • Our water outlet is 22.5" off the ground and 13.5” to the left of the center line. I would recommend this as the absolute minimum distance from the center line. 
  • The CR Spotless is mounted with the top of the bracket at 43”. 
  • The top of the hose reel mounting bracket is at 61”. 
  • The top of the back of the metal shelf is 68.5”.
  • The power outlet should be about the same height as the shelf but to the right. Ours is lower than that because we didn’t move it. It's not ideal. 
  • The total width is roughly 30”.

Prevost Piping Kit for CR Spotless
Warranty Information
This is an at-your-own-risk purchase. Although, I'm pretty sure aluminum will hold up to deionized water over time. We have zinc plated, brass valves and aluminum pipe, and fittings that aren't rated or tested for water. But, if these can hold air, I figure why not water. I'm using it on my system and wanted to offer you the same option.
