pressure jet washer

thinking about getting a pressure jet washer along with an electric blower just so my car can stay swirl free

however, friend of mine told me that the high pressure water blasting on the dust of body panel can cause swirl mark anyway.

so is using a pressure jet washer will really help me keep swirl mark to minimum on my car? any thoughts? Thanks

Not good for your paint. Too much pressure. Won't get all the dirt off. Will likely push water past your window seals and into the car.

The only way to get your car truly clean and prevent damage is to hand wash. If you rinse it really well and use a very soapy sponge with a gentle touch, you shouldn't be leaving swirl marks.

You might be getting swirl marks because you are not getting your car completely clean and then you are drying it and accidentally rubbing the slight dirt residue into your paint.
