I have started a new job working for a bright guy who os a plumber fitst, businessman second. He has a cart jetter that no one seemed to able to use very effectively and has a new US Jetting rig arriving next week. I mentioned this jetter guru up in L.A. that would be good to contact. (I was talking about you). Do you mind if I forward your info along? Maybe the boss could do a ride along and pick up some info.
jared, steve from us jetting will be delivering the unit himself. make sure you guys go over everything with him. also check for leaks at the diesel tank. make sure the unit shuts off when the key is turned off, make sure the hose reel swivels a full 90 degrees each side of center. and last but not least, make sure you have good remote range if you ordered it with a remote control.
believe me, i speak from experience. steve knows my machine very well
most important is hose selection and nozzle selection. especially with roots. we can defiantly hook up when you're ready. also us jetting offers a 1 day jetting school. not bad if you've never run their machine before.
Tight turn styrene 90s, non directional tees are never fun. But I use a minimun of 1/4" hose in the bends and 3/8" in the runs. Nozzle selection is key. A root ranger will cut and wash everything out of the line. But if its completely plugged, you will need a good penetrating front nozzle.
Rick.....how much does that head(1/4 warthog) cost?...i have a 3/8 warthog but i like that smaller one for going down 90's from roof vents and lines with multiple bends...i just upgraded my trailor jetter to 3000 psi at 12gpm....how do yu think that nozzle would work with mines?...i also have 350' of 3/8 hose on it...thanks in advance
I don't get to use my jetter as much as I'd like to; it's definitely a money maker. Love the 3/8" controlled spin warthog nozzle, but haven't bought the 1/4". Haven't had much luck with the cheap chinese "spinners", but I've been interested in that warthog spinner for a while. Might give Marvin another call when I get more drain calls.. Nice catch Rick!
