    Rick, does the pipe bursting head more closely follow the line of the pull cable or the pipe?

      it follows the pipe until you hit a 45. then it makes a long turn 45. it breaks out the original fitting and takes a short cut. it's a very smooth transition that if you didn't know where it was located, you wouldn't see it with a camera.

          My next jetter will be the U.S jetting 4018 with the foot remote. It has a run-dry pump also. My atlanta jetting buddy has 2 of them and a water truck cause thats all he does. i was about to buy one, they even drove one out to my house and i was about to buy it for $22,000 cash(it was worth $30,000 at the time) but that was last year sometime. My friend said that the one i have now is all that i will need starting out, but the U.S.Jetter will be my next jetter(probally in two years)..the General Typhoon jetter was $15,600...but with all of the extra stuff i got with it it was just under $20,000...paid cash for it and im very happy with it!!!...its very mobile and you can pull it with your hand if you get into tight areas and all....now if you are doing drains in your area that have pipe sizes 8" and bigger then this may not be the jetter for you....most of the drain pipes that i jet are 4"-6"restaurants,apts,commercial bulidings,small warehouses......no municipalities.

          I do agree you need a bigger jetter. Something no smaller than 4000psi and 20gpm should do. I also agree the spartan 300 is a great machine.

            as far as fake snakes. you might want to find another board as ridgid makes the snakes i use.

            as far as pipe bursting. i was one of the first plumbers to purchase a trenchless machine. infact the serial # is one of the first 20.

            5 years makes you an apprentice in my eyes and the unions eyes.

            maybe you'll open your eyes 1 day and see there's more to plumbing than seeing how much you can charge a desperate homeowner.

              sorry Mark i thought you were on the same little bus as Rick but i apologize. i am sort of a low-cost high volume guy ..RESIDENTIALLY..but im not going that route COMERCIALLY....the going rate for unstopping a residential drain in Dallas is $125-135....i charge $75-$85...these prices is if the homeowner has a clean-out....its an additional $50 to go from the roof stack or $75 additional to pull a commode...now if an apartment complex calls me or a restaurant its between $350-$500 to hydrojet the sewerline...depending on the time of the call. i made $1000 Sat evening from 2 Hydrojetting jobs done after 5p.m. last Sat(2 different plumbers subbed me out)..they charged the commercial customer like $750 and the other charged them $978...i got $500 a piece because it was over hours..funny thing about it is that the guy set up a maintence contract for me to go there every 2 months and jet 2 cleanouts at these apartments and hes chargin them $1,000 every two months.....another company was doing it every 3 months at $550 a time and he took there business......why they chiose him over the cheaper company?...i dont know......i guess they like him.

                  Dog will hate me for this but in the spirit of my thread I wrote yesterday I think we need to move on.
