        This is actually a good thing for you guys to remind me of the perils of styrene area drains and other out of whack systems.
        Going to a large property to address about 40 recievers,deck drains,down spouts,catch basins.aGonna be using everything,including the jetter.Need to be very aware of where the end of it is.
        I have learned to pay attention to this forum ever since I got a speeding ticket a day or two after discussing them here.
        Everytime something comes up I consider it a warning or a near future opportunity.

        Thanks Tool

          LOL-Yeah you have to be careful. I was pulling the hose out at a curb core after cleaning a yard drain. I was sweeping out the last of the mud with a back and forth action. I looked away for just a second and tore a bunch of skin off of my palm when the jetter hose came out of the drain.

            Oh yeah, I've pulled a little too far a time or two. Gotta love the foot pedal to stop the shower quickly!

              you need a foot pedal as a dead mans switch. a spray wand will work but it ties up a free hand.

              even on my large jetter trailer, i have full controll over the water.

                We use a little peace of duct tape at the 10` mark now and haven`t had the problem since.

                  I'm not so sure duct tape is the way to go but I guess if you renew it as needed it would work. I would use markings in TWO places; the first yellow at 15 feet and the second bright red tape at ten feet instead of that little piece of duct tape that might get missed. On the hydro-lasers I have used (not for sewer/drain work but still cleaning junk out of process piping) we paint the hose for about 12 inches at the above mentioned locations, its works well. There is no mistaking a 12 band of yellow or red for a piece of gunk stuck to the hose.

                  And a dead mans foot switch is required.

                    A Leader hose five long and a different color works well too. A fitting on the smaller hoses dosent work that well though.

                              Hardly true.I believe my count is up to two at this moment.

                              Will you ever become aware of the fact that the world would not stop spinning on it's "Ricky" axis when you are gone.
