  • Jetters and line sizing

    Is there a rule of thumb for GPM to line size as it pertains to jetting?

    Example: If I plan on sticking to jetting sewer lines no greater than 6" do I really need 80 HP and 20 GPM?

    Here is my thoughts
    3/16 = 1.5"
    1/4" = 1.5 to 2"
    3/8 = 3-4"
    1/2" = 4" - 6" maybe 8" but I don't do 8"

    I use my 3GPM machine for the 3/16 and 1/4"
    I use my 5GPM machine with the 1/4" and 3/8"
    And I use my 12GPM machine with 3/8" and 1/2"

    1/2" with flusher nozzle really rocks flow!
    I will try it with my 3/8" warthog but it is sized to 3/8 line right now.

    I want to try the double root ranger nozzle I saw online
    and the new root ranger 1/2"
