Bookmark and Share Launches Groundbreaking Electric Pressure Washing System Compliant with California SORE Regulations

FORT WORTH, Texas , April 22 /Businesswire/ -, an industry leader in commercial pressure washing solutions for half a century, is celebrating Earth Day by proudly unveiling its latest innovation: a high-performance, commercial grade, fully electric hot water pressure and soft washing integrated system that is compliant with California's recently enacted small off-road engine (SORE) regulations.

Effective January 1, 2024, California's Air Resource Board has begun enforcing a prohibition on the sale of off-road spark-ignition engines capable of generating 19 kilowatts (25 horsepower) or less. This new mandate impacts a range of equipment, including lawn mowers, blowers, edgers, and other handheld devices such as commercial pressure washing systems.'s innovative "California Skid" is a fully electric pressure and soft washing system that meets these stringent SORE regulations without sacrificing performance. Designed for easy installation on trailers or pickup flatbeds, the system can operate for up to 35 hours when powered by the Ford F150's built-in inverter.

“ has built hundreds of fully integrated power and soft washing trucks, trailers, and skids over the last 50 years,” explained Christopher Blann, CEO of “Traditionally, gas engines have powered most of the commercial pressure washing systems while soft washing systems have evolved to use electric power as an alternative efficiently. We are extending this trend with our first ever fully electric skid, called ‘The California Skid’ specifically designed to address Californian’s SORE requirements in an all-in-one, commercial-grade system. It delivers high-performance hot water pressure and cold soft wash capabilities, enabling commercial operators to tackle even the most difficult challenges, including cleaning graffiti, oil, and gum.”

Pressure washing systems are essential for maintaining cleanliness by removing built-up dirt, algae, oil, graffiti, and various stains from buildings, driveways, decks, and more. Regular use of pressure washing prolongs the lifespan of and supports compliance with health and safety standards, ensuring a clean, professional environment. As a result of the SORE law, organizations across California – including companies, municipalities, and universities -- are looking for alternative pressure washing approaches.

California Skid’s California Skid is built within a sturdy aluminum tube frame that protects the pump and provides a stable base for securing the system to a flatbed of a truck. It also includes a state-of-the-art electric pressure washer capable of delivering hot water up to 220 degrees and 4 gallons per minute, enhancing cleaning efficiency. Additionally, a 12v soft wash unit is seamlessly integrated into a durable powder-coated steel box, featuring a deluxe 7 gpm 150psi soft wash pump with a Flojet accumulator tank for consistent chemical application performance. This setup is complemented by the Maverick Delux Proportioner, which allows precise adjustments of mix ratios through expertly scaled metering valves. A 200-gallon water tank with a Hudson float valve, chemical-resistant stainless steel hose reels, 100 feet of high pressure hose, 100 feet of freshwater fill house, and 200 feet of soft wash ag house ensures a complete and ready-to-use system for all professional cleaning needs.
