1. A pressure washer wand comprising:

  • a housing having a pistol-grip handle and a trigger guard;

    a valve assembly housed in the housing, the valve assembly including a first valve and a second valve, each of the first and second valves including a valve member that is movable between a closed position and an open position, each valve member being biased toward the closed position;

    a first outlet in fluid communication with the first valve;

    a second outlet in fluid communication with the second valve; and

    a trigger coupled to the housing between the pistol grip handle and the trigger guard and movable between a first position and a second position, the trigger having a first cam and a second cam, the first and second cams being configured to move the valve members of the first and second valves, respectfully, so that movement of the trigger from the first position to the second position opens a first fluid communication pathway from the first valve to the first outlet when the trigger is positioned in a first intermediate position between the first and second positions, and opens a second fluid communication pathway from the second valve to the second outlet when the trigger is positioned in a second intermediate position between the first intermediate position and the second position.
