The Realm BY02-BCOH is an electric pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 2100 PSI and flow of 1.6 GPM. (Read full specs)
Zoom on the Realm BY02-BCOH
In a nutshell, the Realm BY02-BCOH is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
Using a 13 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (roughly 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3360 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Realm BY02-BCOH's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 D13 x W13 x H21 in, the Realm BY02-BCOH makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BCOH convenience of transport.
Since the unit weighs only 17 lbs, it is very easily carried around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. A set of two 4" solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
Along with the Realm BY02-BCOH 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 included 19 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its 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.
- Onboard storage: With the Realm BY02-BCOH's handy storage area, you’ll always have all the necessary nozzles and accessories at hand and thus, you’ll be fully prepared for any job.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Included with the Realm BY02-BCOH are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), tool kit, spray gun, power cord, pressure hose, nozzle cleaner and wand.
The Realm BY02-BCOH's performance versus other pressure washers

- With 2100 PSI, the Realm BY02-BCOH ranks as one that can reach an above average pressure, amongst the electric products that cost between $100 and $150. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Realm BIOP with 2400 PSI.
- With a water flow of up to 1.6 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX3001 has the highest GPM of 1.76.
- The BY02-BCOH, with its 3360 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) sits at the high end of the cleaning efficiency spectrum, when compared to other devices of similar price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Realm BY02-BCMH with its 4025 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
