    Full of water or empty is fine, it's when you have half a tank sloshing back and forth trying to push you that you have problems.

        i hope you have electric or surge brakes. and don't tow full of water any real distance.

        lets see some video of it up and running.

        once again a real nice design and execution.

        Thanks for the kind words guys. The hot water is going to be used for thawing lines and also for grease if needed.

          Way less, I would say about half the cost of an open trailer unit with the same specs, but I now have an enclosed trailer. Yes there's labor involved, but when you're working for yourself, labor is free, right? Well as long as you're not losing out on billable time. There is probably about 120 hours into this thing, but insulating and paint was about 40 hours. Then there's fabricating the tank support, motor & pump base, rack for the hose reels, piping and the extra wide water hose reel. It all takes time.

            What brand pump and model did you go with? Is it belt driven?

                Wow looks great!! You're gonna be so happy having a jetter. I had mine out on job yesterday for the first time. One a client can see what it can do it will basically sell itself. I went to jet the grease lines on a hotel kitchen when the sous chef saw it work I asked if he wanted me to also jet the outgoing line from the grease trap since the system had been neglected for quite some time. He was like oh hell yeah. I can't believe the amount of grease I cleared out of these lines. Congrats Super, hope it makes you a ton of $$.
