As you look for a nozzle, keep in mind

  • what you need to do
  • what are the pipe characteristics you will be cleaning (size/slope/material)
  • when using the size and length of hose you have, what pressure and flow can your jetter deliver at the nozzle

Some nozzles combine angles to “multi-task”, but most likely you will have to use 2 or more nozzles on any job, each doing a different task to produce a clean line.

Water pressure does the blasting and loosening of material caked on to pipe walls.

Water volume (gpm) flushes out loose debris.

Rotation assists clearing hard blockages as well as hardened deposits.

You want to harness as much energy from your pump and convert it to pressure and/or flow without creating back pressure, or letting that potential energy flow out unrestricted from jets that are too large for your pump.

Smaller jetters working in smaller lines generally use higher pressure and lower flow to clean.

Flat grade pipes call for lower flows to allow for draining.

Greater water volume is generally more important than pressure in larger pipes, and you will want an efficient nozzle to get as much debris cleared using the water you have, ideally avoiding refills.

The cleaning pressure (psi) your pump can deliver is dependent on hose length and its diameter. Pressure loss will occur from a pump as the hose length is increased.

Refer to the specs listed for each nozzle. If you need something different, just let us know!

In general:

  • Lower ° angles– more pulling power
  • Higher ° angles – more cleaning power
  • Forward jets – penetrating, pushing debris forward
  • Rotating jets – cutting, loosening of hardened deposits, additional flushing action

Rules of thumb on angles:

  • 15° to 25° — Maximum pulling necessary for long runs, or in combination with side or front jets to ensure forward propulsion.
  • 25° to 35° – Flushing of sand and sludge, especially with rotating nozzles.
  • 35° — Provides a good combination of flushing and thrusting action with good pulling power for use on medium runs.
  • 45° or 55° — Good cleaning power with reasonable pulling power, good flushing action with reduced pulling power.
  • 45° to 80° with rotation – clear heavy calcium deposits, de-scaling.
  • 90° — A single 90° jet helps navigate corners, multiple side nozzles provide a rinsing and polishing action. Must have rear jets for forward movement.
  • Forward jets — Penetrate softer obstructions. Rotating forward jets cut through hardened blockages. There should be at least 2 rear jets for each forward jet to provide forward movement.

Styles

Our nozzles fall into 2 broad categories:
– Drilled orifice nozzles are inexpensive, but wear quickly especially if not maintained.
– Nozzles which have replaceable inserts tend to be more expensive. But with regular maintenance and repair of orifices, they have a much longer life span, reducing the cost of ownership.

Maintenance

It is important to keep the orifices in nozzles open and clear. Our tip cleaners can help with this. Otherwise, always inspect your nozzle for cracks or worn threads and replace as necessary. Thread sealant is recommended for use on threads. Warthog nozzles have maintenance kits to keep their fluids at an optimal level, thus extending their life.

Nozzle Kits

Nozzle kits are collections of commonly used jetter nozzles, in a handy case. See each kit for a list of what is included.
