Having been asked to unblock several drains last year (with my trusty rods) I was wondering if a jetting attachment for my pressure washer might fare better.

 

A quick search on Ebay and I came up with this :http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PRESSURE-WASHER-HOSE-KRANZLE-225BAR-20M-DRAIN-CLEANER-/180547884842?pt=UK_Home_Garden_PowerTools_SM&hash=item2a097e172a

 

It is £76 delivered.

 

I have a pertol 6.5hp washer. Would I be wasting my time? Does anyone else use this type of thing on their pressure hose?

 

Many thanks

 

Nick

    Yes, getting a rod stuck in the drain would be a nightmare! That's why I thought the pressure washer attachment might be better.

     

    The reason I was considering it is that there seems to be some quite good money to be made!

    I have one bought for my own use as due to the house layout problems from my neighbor have the effect of backing up my house drains, my machine is 3800 psi 250 bar and it does need this to properly propel the pipe and shift blockages.

     

    I really wouldn't want to start doing customers drains, what if your rods unwind in the drain etc, not least the problem of getting equipment covered in human waste and having to clean it/ transport in van.

    You can get the jetter stuck as well and that is even worse. I use a local guy to me he is great works out around 45/h, top notch service couldnt be better really isnt worth me investing in kit when I can use him and his knowledge only problem is I know when its bad enough to call him out its a serious problem and normally ends up with a dig up and relay.
