When your business begins building a repertoire of sewer cleaning tools, one of the things you can’t do without are sewer nozzles. Every cleaning situation will require a different set of tools, so if you plan to offer the best service to your customers you’ll need a variety of equipment to do so. There are many sewer nozzles for sale, and these are the ones you’ll need to purchase first from a reputable supplier.
High Performance Nozzles
While a regular nozzle works well for smaller projects, sometimes you’ll need an extra boost to remove a blockage. High performance nozzles convert waterflow and pressure into thrust more efficiently than regular nozzles do, which makes them more powerful and will allow you to complete cleaning jobs more quickly. Many sewer cleaning systems can be purchased with a high performance nozzle included, so this isn’t something you’ll have to search for to find.
An open nozzle has an orifice in the tip that allows water to shoot like a laser from it. It’s a powerful nozzle that’s normally used in grease and soap blockages of medium to heavy density, as it can remove the softer materials very quickly.
You can also select a rocket nozzle, which is considered to be a step up from an open nozzle. This type of sewer nozzle can be alternated between an open and closed position, and attacks the blockages intensely. Rocket nozzles are often used for large sand, silt and sludge blockages.
A rotating nozzle has a spinning device in its center, which enables the pipe walls to be sprayed separately to the rest of the blockage. Such an action has the effect of a scrubbing brush, and allows the whole diameter of a pipe to be cleaned, and the entire blockage removed. If you plan to take on many grease cleaning projects, you’ll find a rotating nozzle to be invaluable.
When you can’t easily access a blockage in a pipe directly, such as when it’s after a bend, you’ll need a Q nozzle. These sewer nozzles push water upwards with their jet, which forces the blockage to break apart and continue through the pipe upstream.
Whichever sewer cleaning tools you think your business needs, contact a trusted supplier for guidance in choosing the right equipment for your business.
