When he showed the nozzle to me the spray holes were pointing backward at about a forty-five degree angle. I don't think there were any forward pointing spray holes. He mentioned in passing that it might cut some of the roots given the strength of the water spray. No guarantee on that.
The hose is fifty feet long, by the way, not twenty-five, so it is certainly sufficient for my house dimensions. I am just waiting for a mild, cloudy day without rain.

Jetter is a pressure washer with a self-propelling nozzle. Multiple rear spray holes & usually one hole forward. The hose is usually more flexible and easier to be pulled through the pipe by water pressure.
