Proper jetter maintenance may be one of the easily overlooked business items as a drain cleaning professional. In this blog, we’ll provide a look at specifics for the jetter models we offer here at MyTana.
Basic troubleshooting can help solve some of the pressure issues that can afflict any jetter from time to time: low pressure, loss of pressure, or pressure spikes. These issues can be caused by a few different things, most of which have simple fixes. When something seems amiss with your jetter, here are three steps to start your diagnosis:
With cold temperatures on their way in, protect your jetter
from seasonal changes
How you care for your equipment somewhat changes throughout the year. As the Northern Hemisphere heads into fall and winter, it’s time to start preparing for cold-weather conditions.
Jetters are an essential sewer and drain cleaning tool. If you are new to the drain cleaning world, training new team members, or looking to start your own business in drain cleaning, understanding the ins and outs of jetters is important. Nozzles, one of the key components of a good jetter system, often bring up specific questions like: how nozzles work with jetters, how a nozzle’s design affects the work it can do, and why nozzles have such variance in pricing.
Investing in a quality jetter: a brief guide
Many dream of owning a business. Being your own boss and in control of your time means you are in charge of your work/life balance. Though it does also mean you’ll need to oversee additional business aspects like marketing and accounting, the tradeoff can be significant. You’ll get to keep working directly with clients, and you’ll be able to invest in the tools you want.
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.
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.
