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
In summary, the Realm BIOP is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
With a 14.5 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 2400 PSI (roughly 40 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Realm BIOP's cleaning power of 3600 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BIOP is started simply by an 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.
Standing at only 29 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. Even though the BIOP doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.
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: The unit comes with an easy-to-connect 19 ft high-pressure hose. But, there is no proper storage solution designed 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 wand, power cord, nozzle cleaner, spray gun, pressure hose and foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water).
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.
- Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 2400 PSI, the Realm BIOP is one of the electric products that can produce the highest water pressure, in the $100 to $150 price range.
- As this washer can produce a flow of water of 1.5 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3001, with 1.76 GPM.
- Reaching up to 3600 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BIOP is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Realm BY02-BCMT, which can reach up to 3675 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
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.
