Thank you, John. I will talk with them today.
Yesterday I had a good talk with Charlie, the Tech at http://www.watercannon.com/c-217-jet...equipment.aspx
He wanted to know about my pressure washer:
What size lines I want to clean out?
2" - 4"
He recommended I get
1/4" hose of 130' length.
A ball valve to regulate flow.
A nozzle kit with
1. Laser head that has 3 jets back and one jet forward
2. Rotating head
3. Corner head
4. Ram head
A hose reel.
About $500 including shipping
The 1/4" hose will carry 2.5 to 3 GPM. Heads have different flow rates that need to be matched to pressure flow from pressure washer. Too small and can build up too much pressure. Too large and cleaning is compromised. The hose is pulled through the drain by the head that creates a jet action. A 1/4" hose will turn elbows in smaller diameter drains more easily than a 3/8" hose.
A ball valve is needed to control flow. This will do an easier job than having to hold the trigger on a pressure washer wand. Possibly a foot operated valve would be even better.
I was warned NOT to use quick connect fittings on the hose / nozzles that go INSIDE the drain as they can get disconnected. If you have two hoses connected together, this is especially important, as a hose disconnected inside a drain can be a problem to retrieve.
There are several good videos about using a pressure washer on youtube.
I have also talked with http://priindustries.openfos.com/
who offered similar equipment for about $300. Water Cannon has a better web presence, but is a bit more money. The salesman with PRI was not very jetter tech savvy, but is putting me in touch with his tech today.
I will also follow John's suggestion for Amazing Machinery though a post on another forum was suggesting Water Cannon had better products. My concern is the quality of the hose in particular. I don't mind paying for a better hose, but how to know if certain equipment is better, or is a different vendor selling the same equipment at a higher price?
