  • Flexibilty of a jetter hose.

    What's the smallest line and fittings a 3/8" warthog could pass through?

    According to the Stoneage website regarding the WT-3/8 the smallest pipe it will navigate is 3 inch.

    They refer to it as their extra small nozzle and is recommended for 3"-4" Laterals.

    Here is a link to a couple of informative pages:

      3in. Do not go in anything under 3in with that, the head is to big.

        Will a 3" allow any wiggle room for the head or is it a tight fit?
        I guess my question should be, would youi use one in a 3" line that is in rough shape (slight offset, slight sag etc)?

          unless it's just a straight piece of pipe with no turns

          also be very careful with outside area drains that use that cheap styrene pipe and fittings. the fittings are a very tight turn and is not the same as a waste / sanitary fitting. i've been stuck in a 4'' fitting with my 1/2'' warthog.

            I can do 3in with acouple 45s or 90s. Its hard if your doing the Warthog and the camera at the same time though, not alot of room in there.

            I bought my 3/8 nozzle for the purpose of doing of 3in. See alot of 3in cast around here with roots getting at the joints of the 3to4in conversion.

              I do 3" commonly with the 3/8" warthog, little problem with bends except for 2 90's right next to each other. I bush it down to work with 1/4" hose. Be careful going uphill; I've hit a reducer to 2" a couple of times and made it a foot or so into the 2" before sticking hard in there. Once it was exposed and could take nh apart to unstick it, once had to snake in behind it and pop it loose.
              This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
