Jetters are an essential sewer and drain cleaning tool built to blast through soft obstructions like grease and sludge or melt through frozen lines. Each jetter consists of a motor, hose, pump and nozzle; and each attribute must be considered when purchasing a jetter. But none is more customizable than the jetter nozzle. Jetter nozzles are specialized to perform debris breaking and line clearing, and different designs all have individual advantages that impact price and use.
Being a plumber or drain cleaner means being mobile. From switching between cleaning, jetting or inspecting tasks to traveling from job site to job site, this profession depends on your mobility, so your equipment should support being on the go. You can’t do your job without your equipment, and you can’t use your equipment if you can’t get it out of your truck. Staying injury free also plays a large role in keeping you going, so portability considerations help you make obstacles easier on yourself and on your equipment.
How you care for your equipment changes throughout the year. Your equipment faces a range of weather conditions, from blazing sun to subzero temperatures. Depending on where you live, you might even see both of these extremes within a calendar year! As the Northern Hemisphere heads into autumn, it’s time to start preparing for cold weather conditions.
Water jetting, sewer jetting, hydro-jetting and jetting—they all describe a process of washing out clogs, removing potential blockages or generally cleaning drains and sewer pipelines using a high-pressure spray of water. Many plumbers, drain cleaners and sewer cleaners use jetters because they are powerful and fast cleaning, thanks to a unique combination of water pressure and water flow. In many instances jetters are able to address plumbing challenges better than other pipe clearing products.
