Answer: 1500-2000 PSI
Explanation: There are 2 different woods in decking, hard (which is darker) & soft (which is lighter in color). Pressure washing with to much PSI is when "splitting" occurs in the deck boards. Once this happens the boards will be potentially ruined for good. Also do not use a short back & forth motion, start at one end of the board and go to the next seam before stopping. This will prevent stop.start lines from appearing.
