We are very glad to see you here learning the very important answer to the question, “Do ice dam steamers have colored plastic tips?” We emphatically say NO they should not! Ice dam steamers that we approve do not have colored plastic tips on the end of the gun/wand. If you ever see a so called ice dam steaming company using a gun/wand with a colored plastic tip you can be assured it is likely not a low pressure steamer but more than likely it’s a high p.s.i. pressure washer.
Low pressure steamers should have one of two styles of metal tips as pictured below. The first and most common tip is referred to as the pipe tip, it is shaped like a pipe and is about the length and diameter of your pointer finger. It is hollow inside and is designed with “internal steps” to expand and control the spray of steam and direct it into the desired pattern like a cloud for melting through the ice dam. The second tip style is commonly referred to as a fan tip. The fan tip is shaped like a flat fan and is typically made of brass and sprays the steam in a triangle shaped pattern. Both versions will be permanently screwed onto the gun/wand with threads and requires a wrench to remove. There will usually never be a quick connect coupler on a low pressure steamer like a pressure washer.
