How It Works
Be sure to set-up your pressure washer outside to get started if it is a gasoline powered unit. If your unit is electric, it can be placed anywhere you need to work. Attach your pressure washer hose to your pressure washer and run this hose to the inside or outside drain you want to clean. Remove your gun/wand and attach the provided sewer jetter hoses onto the hose reel and attach the desired nozzle for the job at hand. Nozzle choices are laser or corner spray. It is wise to get one of each for most applications. Purchase a foot valves for hands-free operation when your washer is not near you. Another added option making the conversion complete is a jetter pulse valve. This attachment will make your machine cavitate as it disables one of the valves on your pump manifold (center valve suggested). This cavitation will give you enhanced cleaning power as it provides more agitation within the page. You are now ready to use your existing pressure washer as a sewer jetter and clean your drain pipes.
You will always need the right part for the right job. For selecting sewer and drain jetting equipment, you can use the following charts as guidelines for selecting the appropriate equipment for your task. Please note that, while there are success stories of cleaning larger pipes with smaller machines, the figures provided in the charts are averages and represent realistic capabilities. There are variables to take into account that can and will impact the results of your jetting, such as: sewer jetting hose size and length, number of elbows and condition of the line, the power of the machine and the experience of the operator.
