  • Eating my words now days

    Ok I went and did it...lol... just ordered a 7 gpm at 2600 psi Jetter. I`m working in a town here in Kansas that got completely wiped out by an F 5 1.7 mile wide Tornado. The sewers are full of mud so "YES" I now have a jetter in spite of what I think of em....rotflmao

      allclear, what brand of jetter? is it a trailer or skid mount? post a link. make sure you get a good set of nozzles. do you need to just flush the lines or clear debris?

      7 gpm is not bad. you might be able to get by with a hose hook up and no tank. it's just on the edge of needing a storage tank.

      i would guess it's a 20 horsepower machine.

              jsut a suggestion,

              If your hooking up via garden hoses, (especially if there pumped via a well and not city water), attach an whole house filter to the line before the jetter or washer pump. It may be very cheap insurance for your pump. (sand and high pressure pumps don't play well together).

                don't want to burst your bubble, but the specs they do a good job advertising are over rated

                7 gallons per minute is decent, but is no match for a plugged 12'' line. cleaning is more about volume, than pressure.

                i doubt you will be doing 12''. 4'' and 6'' is more up to speed here.

                      I`m only needing it for 4" lines and maybe some 6" at most, so 7gpm should do the trick. If I was going to do 12" I would by a vac/jet truck

                        Re: Eating my words now days

                        I'll start out with saying i do alot of looking and not much talking on this site but i might have some usefull information.

                        dont know if you have ever seen these large mud vacs or not, http://www.vermeer.com/vcom/Trenchle...p?PrdlnID=3614

                        They do work quite well. we used to make these in house but i dunno 5+ years back outsource most of it, not sure why but we do.

                        City that my dad works for bought one and they use it alot to make trenches between buried cables and lines when there isn't alot of room to trench or backhoe out.

                        i know they are way over rated for plumbing but never know if you really have that much cleanup work to do down there might be something to see if a rental is available somewhere.

                        there are other brands besides Vermeer that make these and i imagine they are all pretty similer.

                          7gpm will be fine for that work

                          a $7,500 jetter investment sure beats a $300,000. investment.

                          question, since you already have a trailer for your work, could you skid mount it into the exisiting trailer, or do you know have to tow a set of doubles

                            It`s coming on a skid mount, I`m not sure if I`m gonna mount it in the trailer or in the back of the truck or on another trailer I have left over from a jet ski??? I keep thinking the back of the truck my be the best place?
                            What do you think Rick?
                            The Trailer is kinda full and hard to walk around as it is
