There was a red tape about 24 inches back from the head and during the course of jetting one of my outside storm drains the tape must have come off. Most of the damage is minor except my arms. which were both cut open pretty good. I got about a cup of water out of my right arm. This was a Northern Tools jetter hose attachment on a Karcher 3600 PSI pressue washer that I use to clean surface drains on my properties. This made a believer out of me and I will not use it again until I get some kind of foot valve. Everything is healing up pretty good, it just looks like when someone said shut up I stood up and got my *** kicked.
I forwarded this to my brother in law who's an er dr. He said you definatly need to get at least antibiotics to treat for the water under the skin. Its not clean water coming from a pump and jetter hose.
You really should have it looked at. The 1 time I got hit was a split second blast that tore my glove off and made hamburger meat out of parts of 2 fingers. Took 6 weeks to scab over and heal.
