    i have a commercial one for my trailer jetter and it has the carbide insert.

    the bigger the jetter, the faster the blasting.

    very important to keep the sand dry and keep the injector dry so that water doesn't enter the sand hose.

      Ok Rick, is there anything you don't know, or have. I thought I knew alot, but after listening to all of you, I'm depressed. LOL
      My goal now is to find a question, you don't know the answer to, but I may need help. I'll get back to you, one of these days.

          rust on metal is good, but remember that the water will re-rust the metal if not dried and treated.

          don't need it on wood grain. a #15 nozzle will clean off the soft wood and expose the grain.

          careful on cast iron sewer pipe as the tar coating is what keep the pipe from rusting, rotting and leaking. black spray paint works wonders on cast iron pipe

            I never knew they existed until I had a renter move out of a house I used to own. It had a pool and apparently the pump hadn't worked for months. The pool was black, had all kinds of savory things in it and was just plain disgusting.

            Luckily it was in the winter, so after checking the ground water level, I drained it, cleaned it out and discovered this calcium like coating all over the marcite. The only thing that would touch it was the pressure washer with the sand attachment. Around six hours and 26 bags of sand later, we could again see marcite. What a mess!

                I think we should start calling you the "Jetter King". I might have to come out and visit to pick up some of what you're laying down.

                  Thanks, I'll do my best. Hardest part as you already know is extracting info from the OP. Once you get that, the rest is easy.
