Pressure washer lance

Afternoon all, I'm looking to buy a new lance for my vax vpw1 1700w and need some advice on nozzle sizes. The pressure washer is rated 130 bar with a 6l/minute flow rate, on a chart I found it shows I need a 025 nozzle but the lance I've found comes with 020 or 030 nozzles.

I'm worried if I go with a 020 it will cause problems with the pump with the nozzle being to small and if I go with the 030 I will lose pressure. Has anyone got any suggestions to what would be best? Any help would be massively appreciated.

You are right to hesitate, getting the right nozzle size is vital.

If they won't supply a 025 nozzle, get the right size of nozzle elsewhere, or simply go for a different lance.

Edit: What lance is it - it's unlikely to be unique, whatever it is. Have you asked the vendor if they can supply an 025, even if not listed?

Thanks for the reply. Yes I messaged the seller asking if they do the 025 but haven't heard anything yet. Just thought I'd ask on here to see if it would be a problem as I could get 20% off eBay items until 6pm.

I don't think it's a branded Lance, just an extended one from demon motorsport on ebay. It's a 90cm bent Lance with a 40 degree spray pattern.

Just buy the bits and make it yourself

Pipe
M22 fitting
Nozzle protector
Nozzle (choose your preferred spray angle and size)

Maybe a spot of threadlock to hold it all together (or you can use PTFE tape).
