  • Commercial kitchen jetters

    Never had an electric jetter, always gas. They need 20 amp breakers, are these very breakers common in resturants and kitchens within strip malls?

    Would an electric jetter 2gpm, 1500ish psi be effective in 2"cast with sludge buildup?

    I can not say anything about effectiveness but they have electric jetters that run on 15 amp breakers. They are 1.5 hp, otherwise same specs I believe.

      i don't believe 15 amp breakers are allowed in commercial installations. basically it would be 14 gage wire and i don't believe that's legal for commercial.

      commercial kitchens are nice as they have plenty of counter outlets and most are dedicated circuits. especially when you see a 20 amp outlet.

      1.5 hp will usually have lower pressure. some just lower the volume.

      2 hp on my machines are 1500# at 2.1gpm.

      ok for 2'' lines, but cast iron with hard grease build up is not easy with that pressure. you'll get the softer surface build up, but not the real hard built up scale. especially on gal pipe.

      of course with plastic, a garden hose will clean it at 50#.

      ben, you will be disappointed compared to your gas jetter. as long as you know it's limitations, then you'll be fine. borrow 1 of mine and take it for a test drive before you buy
