  • Retrieving roots with a jetter.

    the topic came up last week if a jetter can pull out roots or just cut them up and wash them away.


    yesterday I was jetting 3 jobs and I came back with a good catch on my 3/8'' id jetting hose with 3/8'' warthog nozzle. ficus roots are the normal for me.


    the customer was very pleased and posted this on her facebook page. next thing you know was a bunch of her friends replied with likes and some even replied with we also use rick.


    this facebook thing might be the future for free advertising. might need to get a facebook account.

    Why the WartHog instead of the Root Ranger?

      Root ranger works great going upstream on area drains. If im too close to fixtures, toilets, it can blow back. Also not much of a penetrator if the line is plugged solid.

            Lets not get started about your boot and bonnet. The line is plugged up. Stopped up. Backed up. It ain't draining so its blocked.

              Grass isn't bad on my knees. On concrete I always use my 2'×2' foam pads that interlock.

              Many years back I had my knee drained 5 times in 1 year. Looks like a needle and syringe for a horse. Those grey squares are a life saver.

                Check out the facebook. Here's mine. https://www.facebook.com/pages/From-...19218181453700 I prefer my plastic lined kneepad from HD supply. Thicker foam and the plastic keeps the foam from absorbing sewage when the cleanout is overflowing.

                What the pic really shows is how jetters self clean. Snaking is great and does good but when every joint(such as clay) has roots, the cutters get clogged.....tripping in and out sucks over long distances. Jetters just keep on cutting.
                Buy cheap, buy twice.
