Ridgid US supply the 1/4" Root Ranger kitted to suit most jetters from 3000 to 5000psi with a flow rate from 15 to 25 lpm (3.5-6.5gpm). If you have a late model Ridgid Jetter (I think it's called an RJ-3000) you will probably have one already. They are also threaded to suit your hose fittings.
We can supply the 1/2" Root Ranger and the Double Barrel Root Ranger.....if you can handle the power!
Aussie plumbers have used these for years you guys take a while to catch on!
So who do I contact to get my hands on the ½" root ranger for my trailer jetter? Is there a website or a phone #?
I have the 3/8" root ranger, for my cart jetter, it works really well. Just I am getting to old to load and unload the cart jetter, which is why I want to get my hands on that ½" unit.

Reason: Hit enter to fast and found the website in Bill's profile.
I got one of the rotary nozzles for washing walls and such, they normally have a rubber sleeve on them, that is about a 3/16" thick so the body is smaller. and If I get to close to wood siding it will tear it up in a hurry. Just thinking some here, LOL.

I appreciate your thread because I believe jetting is one of those things we need to get more involved in.
That's a good point Mark, I really never got into jetting at all, of course it has been a few years since was doing this stuff every day. It seemes up here no one was jetting other than the municipals but now it's common for companies to jet. I have learned a lot about it from every ones threads.
so here is a photo of my 1/2'' root ranger tearing into roots in a very stubborn 6'' clay line serving 4 house.
the trick was to run the rr in from the street man hole and pull it back up into the 6'' wye towards the stoppage.
this was done to avoid the potential of stopping up the main as i jet downstream and create a flood in the basement of a multi-million dollar home.
had adam for the day and we were able to fish a 1/2'' fiberglass push rod in from the 6'' end of line c/o. under the known roots from 89'-98'. wasn't sure what the rest of the system looked like as the line was so bad i couldn't even get my see snake mini under the root mass.
the wye was at 138' it turns out and the manhole was at 180'.
so with a little bit of luck and a whole lot of equipment, sweat and screaming, we got the 1/2'' root ranger in the manhole, back up the wye and blasted the roots to smithereens
i'll try to post some more shots and possible a video clip if mark can walk me through it
lets see if i can get it posted
