You need to know the sustained pressure that the pump works at (not the max pressure which is often quoted) and the throughput, usually in litres per minute.

Then Google for "pressure washer nozzle table" - there's loads of them out there - and find the nozzle orifice size that best matches your parameters.

So I'm assuming the hose on your machine looks like this one? https://www.cleanstore.co.uk/product...t.asp?ID=13046

Assuming so, the issue seems to be finding an adapter that would let you connect your current hose to a new gun. If you were thinking of upgrading the hose, then it would be easier to buy one with a more generic termination that could then fit to the gun of your choice.

The bayonet on the end of the hose that goes into the gun must be available separately as folks are making up their own hoses with them on the ends, but I've not found them available for sale separately. Equally I've not found a female counterpart or a part that would adapt a new gun to the standard Nilfisk hose end.

As suggested you may well be best off talking to a supplier of this kind of gear to see what can be readily adapted to what.

The issue you've got is the probe that goes into the handle of your current stock gun. If you buy a new gun, your current hose will not connect to it without an adapter, and I cannot find anyone selling these separately. So you'd either need to replace your hose with a new one that would connect to the new gun, or find someone who could sell you the necessary bits to adapt your current hose to a new gun.

If it were me I'd probably take the opportunity to upgrade the whole hose and gun / lance setup, steering clear of any special Nilfisk adaptors. That way, if you ever change your PW you can just update the adapter at the machine end of the hose, and maybe the nozzles, but the rest would work with any machine.
