        Re: area drain jetting

        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.

        Thanks

          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.

            Rick, I've run their 4014 unit before and a Gorlitz GO3000 cart jetter and I don't think either had their smaller hoses or nozzles set up to get the results that you do in area drains.

            I could send to 4014 up a curb outlet and clear the lateral provided there were no bends. Sending the 4014's 3/16's hose or the GO3000's hose in for branch drains and I was just giving roots a bath.

              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.

              Rarely use my 3/16" hose.

              Rick.

                    The 1/4" is a high speed spinner. At first I didn't care for it, but then it started to work. I guess it needed breaking in.

                    I set up my nozzle size for 5.5 gpm. This way as it wore out the orrifice still might be in range. Also too much gpm in a 1/4" hose is lots of pressure drop.

                    Memory was approx $425. 2 years ago.

                      Mine is jetted for my specs and works great up to 4" This is my video of the review. With the clear pipe, you can see it cuts grease great but the low flow doesn't allow it get flushed out.
                      Buy cheap, buy twice.

                        How is that mid range ish warthog doing for you? Was it set up for 12 gpm 4k? That would be awesome for residential work concerning sewer laterals.

                            Bought the 1/4" high speed warthog from the phcc trade show 1.5 years ago. Harben calif sold it to me. Try allan coleman in chicago. Chances are they have it in stock.

                                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!
