  • hydro jetter debate

    hi to all

    i am pretty new in the drain cleaning business and my work consists of residential only, condos and villas.

    i own the k-39 af and some other hand tools for the jobs .

    i want to add a jetter to my arsenal and i am debating between an electric one (2 gpm at 1500 psi)and a gas powered one(6HP with 3 gpm)

    firstly can i jet with a gas jetter indoor??

    portabilty between the two is amost the same as both weigh about 65-75 pound

    i am afraid that an electric one with 15 amp and 2 gpm would be like pissing in the drain, what do u think??

    a gas jetter with 3 gpm can give me a more versatile array of jobs ,like 4 " main sewer lines right????

    thanks for listenning

    I started with a gas (13hp) cart jetter 4.5 gpm @ 3700 Figured I could use it for 4 " and smaller lines just hook up a 1/8 hose for the smaller drains, Being it is gas powered I would have to leave the jetter outside and run the hose through the customers house, wich can leave a mess on the floor and it was a real hassle to hook up the smaller hoses, so I ended up buying a small electric jetter (General j1450) This jetter i take right in the house with me no mess from a hose that has been down the sewer laying on the carpet and it does a great job in the smallwe 1 1/2 "-2" drains but its to small for anything bigger.

      The extra 1 gpm with the gas will make a differance and would go with the gas unit. I already had an electric and it was not as good or took longer. As for a hose from outside I simply bought painters hose plastic for going over airless hose and put it on my supply hose to my reel and no mess or marking.

            Airless paint sprayers have plastic hose covering as an option for inside spraying to not mark walls and floors I bought a 1000 ft roll online to cover my supply hose when in nice homes.
