    Re: nozzels

    Just curious I have been using my 1/4" jet hose a lot more on 1.5" galv lines as opposed to my 1/8" line I bought (with aqua mole tips) The 1/4" line is bigger but I can twist the hell out of it to make turns. So today I ordered more nozzles from aqua mole for grease. I bought the monster and thruster based on your post Ron.
    Thanks! Bryce

    I do not have 3/8 hose on my main jetter, it is 1/2" hose. The portable cart is 1/4 which I thought was 3/8 hence me ordering the 3/8 nozzles. The hose pulled real nice through the floor drains and went out the 75' to the grease trap with a little work. I think the 3/8" hose if I had it would not have made the turns as easily as I did with the 1/4" hose.

    i notice on mine it jumps to 4,200 on 1/4 inch you dial it down then your gpm goes way down.

After three passes the line was like brand new. I am very impressed with their nozzles. I ordered up the Six pack set. http://www.aquamole.com/SPK.html

    The Monster, and High Thrust Degreaser where the ones of my choice for the above job. I was also pleased to see they make a cornering nozzle. My old Viking cornering nozzle has gotten lots of lines open that a a standard nozzle or power rod could not have gotten open.

    i have the 3/8'' and 1/2'' 6 pack of nozzles and i've been happy with them.

    you can get them made any way you want.

    a suggestion is to get them 1 nozzle jet size smaller and they will enlarge on their own. plus you can always ream them a little.

    this applies more to the larger trailer jetters more than the smaller cart jetters.

    I have ordered from Aqua Mole and will be doing so tomorrow to get some new grease nozzles for my 1/4' hose. Might try that monster nozzle.

    Re: nozzels

    Thanks, Ron. I've been looking for nozzles and Aquamole is one of the brands of interest. I don't live in IL like a few of you do, but, I've had a good experience dealing with Shane @ AJ Coleman. In fact, tomorrow I should get my new Ridgid 2 stage industrial shop vac. One place I found on the net was $1 cheaper than AJ, but I've never dealt with them and like buying from Shane. It's great talking to someone who A. knows about the product they're selling B. knows a lot about the drain cleaning industry, and C.(this is the best part) offers about as good a price as you'll find anywhere. Sure, Ferguson would order it for me.. More $$$ and the kids working the counter don't know a ****** thing about Ridgid drain machines.

    If the faucet is a pain to get on with an aereator adaptor, like the pull out ones, about half the time the pull out will unscrew and you've got 1/2" pipe thread there. when it doesn't, or its some pita proprietary thread, just shut the stop on the hot, undo the supply line, and hook on to 3/8" compression. toilet supplies work nice for vanity sinks when its a nightmare you don't dare disturb at the sink supplies.

    my supply hose for the little jetter ends in a string of adaptors; last is hose thread, take that off and it's 3/8" compression, take that off and 1/2" npt, take that off and 1/2" compression.

    if it's plastic, it will be spotless. if it's cast or galvanized, don't be too disappointed. you'll remove lots of sludge from the kitchen lines, but good luck with the stalactites.

    twisting and turning the hose and using the foot pedal as your pulse, you'll get around the bends.

    take lots of photos and don't be scared to get dirty
