  • Small homemade portable jetter

    I have a few accounts that require a higher power unit but in a small portable package.

    Here it is

    Under constructing yet


    Brigs industrial 18 HP engine
    General TS2021N Pump


    100’ 3/8 none marking pressure washer hose
    200’ ¼ Suttner jetter hose
    Suttner safety foot valve

    I did a pressure test suggested by RICK and others

    At the pump running 4000 PSI
    At the end of the ¼ hose running around 3000 PSI

    So for all of you who get tips, you need to see what your GPM and PSI is at the end of your jetter hose.


    Please keep in mind this is a work in progress

    Looks great. What's it costing so far? What's the gpm?
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

            I can do 2” lines with a smaller electric jetter.

            I made this unit for 3-6” lines

              I can do 2” lines with a smaller electric jetter.

              I made this unit for 3-6” lines in hard to reach places IE allies, back yards and any other area I can drive my truck in or out of easily.

                  It looks like he bought a used Pressure Washer not new single parts.
                  But a 18hp motor around $1200 and a 5 gpm pump $500-800
