I wouldn't think it would be worth it just for the water going into the pit. Probably save more on the water heating.
Like I said, and a couple said similar, a pressure washer will blast stuff all over, not rinse down very well. If you pressure wash, you'll still need to rinse the stuff off all the surfaces that it splattered to.
If you use a booster, to save water you're going to need to go to a smaller nozzle, or set the nozzle to a medium fan pattern and move faster to use less water. If you use a smaller pattern, a 1/2HP booster will be plenty, and not draw down your pressure as much. Making pressure is CHEAP compared to heating water.
