  • area drain jetting

    had my jetter out today and did a couple jobs with it. spent the morning with phoebe and then off to lunch and then to the area drain call around the corner from me.

    owner was very impressed with the results. original installed in 1963 and never cleaned. thin wall 3'' abs pipe. removed lots of gravel, dirt, and even old sheet metal gutter material.

    line ran 52' from the curb to the front corner of the house drain. ran both the 3/8'' warthog and 1/4'' warthog at 4000 psi 12 and 6 gpm.

    rick.



    always want to jet from the curb up. all the rocks, roots, mud and debris get blown out to the street.



    lots of everything including some broken shards of thin wall abs. 50 year old install.



    had to get this one from the drain side as i couldn't get the 3/8'' warthog around the bends. used the 1/4'' high speed warthog to break it free.



    success with the job. look at the flow now.

    Area drains can put up a fight but will eventually lose to a high end jetter with high end nozzles and one other thing, um, oh the operator. Good job.
    I used to hate area drains until I got a jetter, now it's like,,, bring it on dude.

          Funny you should ask about fishing. Ben just spoke to me yesterday and said the fish are biting. He still owes me that fishing trip from our copper cutting challenge a couple years back.

          That is some thin wall abs you see. There was also some rotted out sheet metal down spout pipe too. Lots of rock and gravel and some ropes of roots.

          A snake would cut roots, but be useless on the rock, metal and mud debris.

            Good job. A jetter will get it done faster, but with the right machine (Electric Eel Model C) and cutter heads you can do it the old fashion way. Now if the area drain is corrugated pipe, a jetter is realy your only option. This was done with my Model C, I also pulled plastic bottles, rocks, leaves, etc out also
