Need Information re: how to operate two wands from one unit

I am looking for any information on how to operate two wands from one unti. I know that is possible because I've seen it done on units from ebay. I have a Honda 13hsp - 4000psi - 5 gpm unit. I picked up a 'T' fitting but had no luck, because one had NO PRESSURE. Would the tips have anything to do with this? Maybe I am overlooking something. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm Pretty sure that you need 2 check valves also. Also, you have been mis lead as to your machines capabilities. A 13 hp engine can't produce 5 gpm and 4000 psi. Most likely, you have a 4 gpm @ 3500 psi.

That being the case, splitting your gpm among 2 wands won't produce very good results. 2 gpm is slow.

As stated 13 HP will not produce 5gpm.
Not to mention the huge waste in time and effort by splitting anything less than 8gpm.
