The Realm BIOP is an electric pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 2400 PSI and flow of 1.5 GPM. (Read full specs)
Zoom on the Realm BIOP
The Realm BIOP is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 14.5 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2400 PSI (almost 40 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 3600 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BIOP gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L17 x W8 x H13 in, the Realm BIOP makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BIOP convenience of transport. The handle is molded in the frame to ensure that it will never fall apart.
With a weight of only 29 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. This light weight compensates for the fact that the BIOP doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.
Along with the Realm BIOP itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 19 ft high-pressure hose is included with the unit. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
- Spray gun and wand: The device comes with a classic ergonomic spray gun and a plastic wand.
- Nozzle: an adjustable nozzle is included. It lets you adjust the spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width).
- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Realm BIOP comes with foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wand, nozzle cleaner, spray gun, pressure hose and power cord.
The Realm BIOP's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Realm BIOP compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With 2400 PSI, the Realm BIOP ranks as one that can reach the highest pressure, amongst the electric products that cost between $120 and $150.
- With a maximum GPM of 1.5 (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the top in terms of water flow, in its respective price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Sun Joe SPX3001, with a GPM of 1.76.
- Reaching up to 3600 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BIOP is one of the most efficient amongst its similarly priced peers.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3500 and 4000 Cleaning Units, the Realm BIOP is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
