How to Select Sewer Nozzles

Sewer cleaning can be a burdensome task, but it can be simplified with appropriate sewer nozzles. Nozzles are used to get rid of blockages and other stubborn grease deposits. In choosing nozzles, you have to be familiar with the pump capacity and pressure so you don’t end up having a misfit for the project. According to experts, nozzles largely depend on hose size ― if you have a one inch hose, then you will need a one inch nozzle.

Jetting systems create high pressure and they will only work at an optimum level if the pressure is fixed at the nozzle end. Some of the things to look for in an ideal nozzle include number of jets, the size of the jets, the gallons per minute (gpm) delivered by the truck, the hose length, and the pressure needed to remove the debris. Experts say that the appropriate end hose pressure ranges from 850 to 950 psi.

If you are to clean 3 to 6-inch sewer lines, you have to use drilled nozzles or a replaceable-orifice debris remover. On the other hand, 8 to 15-inch sewer lines need rounded nozzles with four to eight jets. You also have to ensure that your truck supplies enough gpm so that bigger jets can easily navigate the pipe.

Communicate with your supplier if you are having trouble selecting nozzles. If you know what you need and you have sufficient information at hand, you can easily find what you’re looking for.
