SPECIFIC WARRANTY TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR HIGH PRESSURE HOSES


All high pressure hose used on high pressure jetting units is considered a wear item. The useful life of high pressure sewer jetting hose is heavily dependent on the actions of the operator. Abrasion wear to the high pressure jetting hose coating is the leading cause of high pressure jetting hose failure. At all times, operators must take extra care to prevent abrasion damage to the high pressure sewer hose during normal sewer cleaning operations. Warranty issues on ALL high pressures sewer hoses will be addressed in the following manner:
Warranty on the high pressure sewer hose ( diameter hose or larger) is valid for 90 days from date of shipping when installed on a new US Jetting LLC unit. Warranty on replacement lengths of high pressure sewer hose ( diameter hose or larger) is valid for 30 days from date of shipping from US Jetting LLC .. Warranty on the high pressure sewer hose kits ( diameter hose or smaller - i.e. MiniJet & Micro Mini-Jet Kits)) is valid for 90 days from date of shipping when installed on a new US Jetting LLC unit. Warranty on high pressure hose sections used to connect the high pressure water pump to the hose reel, including the high pressure hose reel swivel is valid for 90 days from date of shipping. Warranty on high pressure hose sections used to connect the hydraulic oil fluid system from the pump to the hose reel, including all hydraulic fluid return lines is valid for 90 days from date of shipping. Warranty on the replacement lengths of high pressure sewer hose kits ( diameter hose or smalleri.e. Mini-Jet & Micro Mini-Jet Kits)) is valid for 90 days from date of shipping when installed on a new US Jetting LLC unit. Any hose that has been cut, scraped or generally abused will not be covered under any circumstances. Any hose that fails will require the damaged section of hose plus 24 inches of hose on either side of the hose failure to be submitted to US Jetting LLC for evaluation by the continued

hose manufacturer. A swage hose fitting of the appropriate size and specification will be supplied to the customer at cost by US Jetting, LLC so the remaining portion of the hose can be repaired for use until the warranty claim is resolved, which can require up to 6 weeks. If the high pressure sewer hose manufacturer determines that the high pressure sewer hose failed due to circumstances other than a material defect or manufacturing flaw, no replacement hose will be offered. US Jetting, LLC is not the manufacturer of high pressure sewer hose. If US Jetting, LLC offers a replacement high pressure sewer hose, a replacement high pressure sewer hose will be shipped at no cost. In some cases, the remaining portion or all of the defective high pressure sewer jetting hose may be required to be returned to the manufacturer. DO NOT dispose of the hose until the warranty claim has been resolved. All warranty replacement items shipped will be invoiced to and be the financial responsibility of the customer until defective item is returned (freight prepaid by the customer) and warranty evaluation completed. If an item is deemed defective and replacement is allowed under the terms of the Limited Warranty, a credit or refund will be issued to the customer.

Operator Safety Procedures


ALL Operators of US Jetting, LLC Equipment and Accessories MUST READ And UNDERSTAND All Information Contained Within This Manual Before Operating A US Jetting High Pressure Jetting Unit.

Safety Is No Accident
NEVER TAKE SAFETY FOR GRANTED!
This photo illustrates the destructive power of water at 4,000 PSI when applied to a two-by-four piece of wood. Human limbs can be severed or flesh removed from bone by water pressure alone. Stones, dirt, splinters, pebbles or other debris can become airborne that can injure not only operators but fellow coworkers and nearby bystanders. High Pressure Jetting Units are not toys, water streams should never be pointed at persons or animals. All High Pressure Jetting Units are powerful machines that require Operators respect always!

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)


Operators and other personal working with or near a High Pressure Jetting Unit always wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE). Operators should always wear the required minimum PPE as recommended by OSHA, company safety officer or company management. When performing work for customers, operators must check for special safety precautions and equipment required at each work site.

Operator Safety Procedures


(continued)

EYE PROTECTION
All operators or persons in the vicinity of the jetting unit and/or the work site, Must Wear Suitable Eye Protection. Eye protection MUST BE WORN to protect against injury from flying debris. High-pressure water will scatter debris into the air. The adjacent picture suggests an acceptable range of eye protection products.

HEAD PROTECTION
Operators and nearby workers must wear safety hats or helmets that should ideally include a full face shield.

EAR PROTECTION
The noises associated with the high-pressure jetting water stream and engine sources can damage hearing over periods of long exposure. Persons within the immediate areas of jetting operations should wear approved personal sound abatement protection.

HAND PROTECTION
An operators hands must come in contact with the high pressure jetting hoses, accessories and nozzles all of which will be contaminated in some manner. Operator should wear two pairs of gloves, an inner pair of latex or rubber gloves to prevent moisture contact. A second, outer pair should be of leather or other type of puncture resistant material, heavy duty gloves are essential. The outer gloves should extend up the forearms for protection against water burns or cuts as well as other injuries normally associated with the operation of heavy duty machinery.

Operator Safety Procedures


(continued)

FOOT PROTECTION
The feet are most likely to come in contact with a jetting stream. This is especially true for jetting gun operators. Therefore, all operators must wear waterproof boots with steel toe caps and metatarsal (foot bridge) guards.

BODY PROTECTION
All operators must wear suitable waterproof clothing in accordance with the work being done. Garments should provide full cover including arms, legs and torso. Liquid or chemical resistant suits must be worn where there is a possibility of injury from such liquids.

CHEMICAL IRRITANT PROTECTION


When using chemicals or high pressure jetting near or in chemically contaminated pipes or vessels, special safety precautions are always required to prevent chemical related injuries. Operators are responsible for determining proper safety procedures to be implemented and followed at every jobsite. No safety manual can predict or determine safety procedures for every job. Onsite Safety Officers, MSDS Sheets and other HAZMAT reference material should be reviewed to determine appropriate PPE safety equipment. In some cases, PPE breathing respirators may be required.

Never Enter a Manhole, Lift Station, Septic Tank, Catch Basin Without Proper Confined Space Training and Safety
BARRICADE WORK AREA
Operators are responsible for the safe operation of high pressure jetting units as well as maintaining a high level of safety in and around the work area. The work area should be adequately barricaded as to prevent unnecessary workers or unwanted onlookers from gaining access to the work area. The barricaded area should be large enough that any possible flying debris cannot injure nearby people and property. Operators and workers must maintain the integrity of the barricaded area during all high pressure jetting operations. If there is a breach in the integrity of the barricaded area, all work must stop while the integrity of the barricaded area is restored.

Inline Water Filter


Every US Jetting unit has an inline water filter with a reusable 80 mesh stainless steel filter element. Proper and routine maintenance is required to maintain optimum pump performance and reduce pump maintenance. All debris collected by the filter is contained on the inside of the filter element, not visible through the clear filter cup hosing.

Never Run Unit Without A Water Filter

Secure the filter cap to the housing, make sure the o-ring is in place. Open the water shut-off and allow water to fill the filter also open the bleed valve on the pump to allow air to escape. No water should leak from the filter cup, water that leaks out also allows air to enter the water system when in operation causing poor pump performance.

To Clean and Replace The Water Filter Engine MUST Be Off


1. Close water shutoff ball valve located between water filter and water storage tank. 2. Open water shutoff ball valve between water filter and pump to allow most of water to drain from system and release any vacuum. 3. Loosen to remove the clear water filter cup by turning counterclockwise. If a wrench is required for filter removal, use a nylon strap oil filter wrench only. 4. Remove water filter cup and retain large rubber oring for reuse. 5. Remove 80 mesh stainless steel filter element. Using freshwater, wash the dirt and debris from the internal core of the element. Hold the element up to a light source to determine cleanliness. 6. Visually inspect the integrity of the filter element for damage such as holes or deformations. Do not reuse a filter element with any type of physical damage, discard and replace with a new filter element. 7. Replace filter element in filter cup, place o-ring in filter cup seat and screw entire unit into filter base. Hand tight filter only, do not over-tighten 8. Close main water drain shutoff ball valve. 9. Open water shutoff ball valve from water tank. 10. Open pump bleed valve to purge air from system 11. Check water filter o-ring for water leaks, correct if any. 12. When unit is running at full pressure, check water filter assembly for presence of air bubbles, correct to eliminate ALL air bubbles.

High Pressure Rupture Disc


Every US Jetting unit has an inline high pressure rupture disc to prevent pump and system damage in case of over-pressurization. Operators must always maintain an awareness of pressure gauge readings. If the maximum working pressure of the high pressure jetting unit (4,000 PSI) exceeded, the pumps safety pressure disc will rupture. In the event that the actual system pressure exceeds the recommended system pressure, the rupture disc will blow or rupture discharging the excess pressure and water from the system. High pressure rupture discs once ruptured are not reusable or repairable. When a high pressure rupture disc ruptures, the sound created is similar to a loud bang or gunshot. Water will then flow through the opening in the disc since the restriction on the system has been lessened. When this occurs, the unit should be shut completely down and the disc replaced. Pressure rupture discs are located on or near the discharge of the high pressure pump. The rupture disc assembly is mounted with the disc facing downward, directing expelled water safely to the ground. On units with dual hydraulic reels with two sets of pressure and water flow outputs, a second pressure relief disc assembly can be found attached to the lower pressure output hose reel. If a disc does rupture, operators must determine the cause to prevent a reoccurrence. The first and most common place to check is the nozzle to see if the NOZZLE IS BLOCKED and clear before continuing operations. Second, check for any kinks in the high pressure jetting hose. Occasionally, a disc will burst under normal working pressure because the disc is old and getting worn out. Note: When using Mini-Jet or Micro Mini-Jet kits, water flow output at the nozzle is reduced and has the potential for a system overpressurization event. Operators must increase throttle while observing the pressure gauge to set the required working pressure and prevent over-pressurization thus preventing a disc rupture.

For discs above 6,000 PSIPlease contact US Jetting, LLC

Do Not Exceed Maximum Pressure


Your pump is fitted with a safety rupture disc which will burst if the pump is run at more than the maximum designed pressure. To replace a ruptured disc, unscrew disc holder and replace with appropriate colored disc, see above chart. Use Teflon tape or anti seize compound on threads, install disc holder with new disc and tighten with a wrench. Insert rupture disc (see picture) with the flat smooth surface facing outward and grooved side facing inward. Some ruptured discs may be difficult to remove, requiring a hammer and small chisel for extracting a blown disc.

Never Use Substitute Rupture Discs or Coins Instead of US Jetting Rupture Discs. Serious structural pump damage and bodily injury can occur.
Rupture discs are to be considered a wear item and spare discs should be kept within the unit for use when necessary. Some rupture discs should be kept in reserve at the office or shop for unit replenishment. Note: When using Mini-Jet or Micro Mini-Jet kits, water flow output at the nozzle is reduced and has the potential for a system over-pressurization event. Operators must increase throttle while observing either the analog or digital pressure gauges to set the required working pressure for the selected hose to prevent over-pressurization thus preventing disc rupture. This is a very common scenario for disc ruptures.

Standard Water Selector Valve


The Water Selector Valve is used to manually turn the high pressure water flow On & Off. Water Selector Valves can be found on all US Jetting High Pressure Sewer Jetting units located on the right side of the control panel. The Water Selector Valve is easily identified by its square shape block design fabricated from stainless steel. Note: For units with the Gen II Wireless Remote Control System, the Water Selector Valve is electrically controlled by an actuator arm. See Gen II Wireless Remote Control System details and operational instructionsSee Page 128 .

The Water Selector Valve is in the OFF position when the valve lever is in the down position. When in the OFF position with the engine & pump operating, water is recirculated from the pump back to the water storage tank. The Water Selector Valve should always be in the OFF position before the jetting unit is started.

Standard Hydraulic Hose Reel


All standard US Jetting units are equipped with a hydraulic powered hose reel. The hose reel is controlled by a single lever located to the right of the reel for operator access. If the US Jetting unit has dual hose reels, the second hose reel will have second control lever located to the right of the reel. Hydraulic hose reels allow for the operator to dispense and retrieve the high pressure jetting hose. It can be operated while jetting with the high pressure hose under pressure or with the high pressure water shut-off. The hydraulic hose reel is designed to be strong enough to retrieve the high pressure hose under pressure thus relieving the operators physical efforts. Note: Never use a trailer jetting unit that is not securely attached to a tow vehicle. Hydraulic hose reels are powerful enough to move a freestanding jetting unit. If the nozzle becomes stuck there is a possibility the hydraulic hose reel can move a freestanding trailer unit causing injury to the operator.

Engine Throttle Control


A standard style throttle cable used on US Jetting Units that differs only in the length between throttle cable mounting position and the engine. Note that some US Jetting throttle cables have either a red or black colored center but operate in the same manner. There is a throttle operational difference between units equipped with an optional Gen II Wireless Remote Control System and standard units. If the high pressure jetting unit is equipped with an optional Gen II Wireless Remote Control System, Refer to GEN II Wireless Remote Control section for throttle operation procedures.

For units with optional Gen II Wireless Remote Control Systems, see throttle setting procedures in the Gen II Wireless Remote Control System section (Page 128).
On standard units (without a GEN II Wireless Remote Control System), the throttle cable can be operated in two methods.

Engine Throttle Control


NOTE: When adjusting engine throttle (with the high pressure water selector valve in the ON position) operators need to refer to either the digital or analog pressure gauge to prevent over-pressurization and a possible rupture of the high pressure disk.
First, use the twist grip by turning counterclockwise slowly increases the engine speed from idle to full throttle. Turning the grip clockwise will slow the engine speed or return the engine speed to idle. Releasing the grip at any point will maintain the current throttle speed setting. This is the suggested method for setting the desired high pressure water output. The second method allows for faster throttle adjustments. Depressing the center red portion of the throttle control cable releases the throttle cable lock for pulling out or pushing in of the throttle cable to set engine speed. This feature is useful for faster engine speed slowdowns.

Operators can use either method or in combination to set the desired engine throttle speed at their discretion.

For units with optional Gen II Wireless Remote Control Systems, see throttle setting procedures in the Gen II Wireless Remote Control System section.

Hydraulic Reel Speed Control Valve


Most US Jetting units are equipped with a hydraulic reel speed control valve. The valve can be adjusted to set the maximum reel speed (slow to fast) when the Hydraulic Reel Control Valve is in the full payout or retrieve position. Speed adjustment is made to suit the needs and requirements of the operator. The Hydraulic Speed Control Valve works in conjunction with the Hydraulic Reel In-Out Control Valve and to a lesser degree with the Hydraulic Power Pull-Out Control Valve. The Hydraulic Reel Speed Control Valve controls the amount of hydraulic fluid passing through the Hydraulic Reel In Out Control Valve.

Hydraulic Reel Speed Control Valve


By adjusting the Hydraulic Reel Speed Control Valve, the operator can set the reel speed to a desired rate even when the engine is operating at maximum throttle. By adjusting the Hydraulic Reel Speed Control Valve will reduce need for the operator to feather the Hydraulic Reel Control Valve to the desired jetting speed. To control and set the speed rate of the hydraulic hose reel, the high pressure hose should be operational within a manhole to manhole pipeline. 1. Loosen the lock screw on the Flow Adjuster Lever. 2. Move the Flow Adjuster Lever counterclockwise (up) to the minimal flow position. 3. Begin high pressure jetting in a mainline pipe. Operate high pressure jetting unit at maximum pressure & maximum engine RPM 4. Using the hydraulic reel control, press the lever to maximum flow and hold in position. High pressure hose will begin to travel up the pipeline. 5. Move Flow Adjuster Lever clockwise to desired reel speed. 6. Tighten the lock screw on the Flow Adjuster Lever to maintain desired position. Once the hydraulic reel speed is set, it will be the same speed in both the payout and the retrieval of high pressure jetting hose.

NOTE: Operators need to be attentive when paying out high pressure hose while sewer jetting. In some instances, operators can inadvertently dispense high pressure jetting hose faster than the high pressure jetting hose travels with a pipe. This can cause a dangerous hose entanglement and possible injury to the operator.

Jump Jet Pulsation System


NOTE: These operating procedures are used for standard US Jetting unit and units equipped with GEN II Wireless Remote Control Systems
All US Jetting High Pressure Jetting units designed for sewer and drain cleaning come standard with a Jump Jet Pulsation System. The Jump Jet System, when in the ON position is designed to divert one third of the pressurized water from the high pressure jetting system back to the water tank. When the Jump Jet System is turned ON, this results in a sharp pulse or vibration on the jetting hose. The hose will appear to flutter or vibrate that results in increased ease of movement. The Jump Jet Pulsation System control valve should only be activated (turned ON or OFF) when the jetting unit is at an idle speed with the water selector valve in the OFF or Return To Dump position. To utilize the Jump Jet Pulsation System, turn the Jump Jet System Valve to the ON position, turn the Water Selector Valve to the ON position and increase engine throttle until the pressure gauges indicates 1,5000 PSI. DO NOT EXCEED 1,500 PSI. Both analog (dial) gauge needle and the LED digital readout will fluctuate or bounce at 1500 PSI, a normal indication of the pressure changes or pulsations.

Never Operate Jump Jet Pulsation System Above 1,500 PSI

All Jump Jet Pulsation System control valves (ON / OFFf) installed by US Jetting are identical. The location of the Jump Jet Pulsation System control valves vary on different US Jetting models (trailer, truck or skid units), but are normally placed within reach of the main unit control panel and easily identified. Locate and identify the Jump Jet Pulsation System control valve before operating the unit.

Jump Jet Pulsation System


The Jump Jet Pulsation System allows for increased hose distance while jetting. It can also be used for assisting the nozzle and hose in negotiating 30, 45 & 90 degree pipe bends. When the hose is fully extended, the Jump Jet System is turned OFF. Operate the high pressure jetting unit at full pressure (cleaning the pipe) while retrieving or rewinding the high pressure hose for maximum cleaning effectiveness. Use of the Jump Jet System was designed for increased hose mobility only while sacrificing overall cleaning pipe cleaning effectiveness is reduced (lower pressure and reduced water flow). Use With Small Diameter Hose Cleaning Kits The Jump Jet System can be used with smaller diameter hose kits with the same increased hose mobility benefit. The same operating procedures should be followed with operating pressure not to exceed 1500 PSI. Use With Gen II Wireless Remote Control Systems (Option) The Jump Jet System can be used in conjunction with the Gen II Wireless Remote Control System. The Jump Jet System can not be turned ON or OFF remotely, only at the Jump Jet Valve mounted on the unit. Location of Jump Jet Valve If the unit has a Jump Jet System, the control valve will be located on or near the operator control panel. On trailer units, the Jump Jet Control Valve is normally located next to the right turn signal lamp but on certain models can be found on the control panel attached to the hose reel. On truck mounted units, the Jump Jet control valve is located on the deck floor underneath the control panel or on the control panel attached to the hose reel. Note: To determine if a US Jetting unit has a Jump Jet System, locate the high pressure hose connection on the top portion of the pump fluid head, refer to pictures of individual pump models in the Pump Section of this manual. US Jetting Radial Piston Diaphragm Pumps contain a different style of Jump Jet System at the pump head but utilizes the same ON / OFF control valve. Refer to pictures in the RPD Pump Section of this manual.

Anti-Freeze System
Sewer blockages occur no matter what the outside temperature is. In some cases, sewer lines can become clogged due to ground frost penetrating the ground below sewer pipes. In cases of frozen sewer lines, high pressure sewer jetting is the only method to clear the blockage. High pressure sewer jetting work is performed yearround, thus necessitating the need for special procedures to complete work in cold weather environments. Mobilizing high pressure jetting equipment to the work site in extreme cold conditions require certain precautions to protect expensive equipment and maintain operator safety. Water is a liquid when the temperature is above 32 Farenheit or 0 Centigrade. Water becomes a solid or ice when the temperature is 32 Farenheit or 0Centigrade or below. No matter how strong or powerful a high pressure jetting unit is, it cannot pump ice. Formation of ice within a high pressure jetting unit can cause expensive structural pump damage from water expansion during the freezing process. This damage can occur with the engine OFF. Additional pump damage can occur while attempting to start a frozen high pressure jetting unit if operators are not attentive. Operators need to be aware of added precautions needed when operating high pressure jetting units in cold weather applications and take special precautions to prevent equipment failure. Water (normally) cannot be completely drained from a high pressure jetting unit, especially units that contain a high pressure hose coiled on a reel. Water trapped inside of a high pressure jetting unit can freeze when exposed to cold weather causing severe and expensive damage. A high pressure jetting unit cannot be used if water has frozen within the system. The US Jetting Anti-Freeze System allows for the high pressure jetting unit to be utilized in cold weather environments. The Anti-Freeze system contains a 19 gallon AntiFreeze solution tank integrated into the units piping system, isolated by a single shutoff valve. When properly used, the Anti-Freeze solution can be used for cold weather protection and recovered (stored within the unit) for use at a later time. The AntiFreeze system eliminates the need for cumbersome storage containers and reduces the possibility of accidental spillage.

Anti-Freeze System
US Jetting Anti-Freeze Systems are available as optional equipment on trailer mounted units, skid units, truck units, enclosed truck units and enclosed trailer units for use with all models of the US Jetting high pressure pump product line (individual component mounting location may vary on different unit models). The concept of Anti-Freezing a high pressure jetting unit is the displacement of any remaining trapped water within the high pressure jetting unit with an Anti-Freeze solution. When removing or purging the AntiFreeze from the unit, capturing of the Anti-Freeze solution is just as important for both economical and environmental reasons. Always use propylene glycol based Anti-Freeze or RV (recreational vehicle) AntiFreeze. This type of AntiFreeze is commonly available at Wal-Mart stores under the brand name Dow RV & Marine Anti-Freeze. Automotive or glycol based Anti-Freeze can be used but is not recommended due to environmental concerns and liability. At the beginning of the cold weather season an initial batch of Anti-Freeze should be prepared for use and re-use throughout the winter season. Each time the Anti-Freeze solution is used and recovered, a small amount of additional water is introduced thus diluting the potency of the Anti-Freeze solution and raising the freezing point. Periodic checks of the Anti-Freeze solution must be performed to insure the appropriate AntiFreeze concentration for cold weather protection. NOTE: Only environmentally friendly propylene based Anti-Freeze should be used. Never use a glycol based or automotive type Anti-Freeze due chemical toxicity. To conform to OSHA regulations for worker awareness, always obtain a MSDS sheet for the brand of Anti-Freeze used for proper use and disposal of propylene based Anti-Freeze and Anti-Freeze solutions.

Anti-Freeze System
Important Tips For Anti-Freezing Units:
Whenever Anti-Freezing or purging Anti-Freeze from the high pressure jetting unit, always operate the engine at an idle speed and manually operate water control valve.

DO NOT USE Gen II Wireless Remote Control System, either the Handheld or Foot Activated controllers; operate the unit from the control panel.
The engine will be started and shut-off during the Anti-Freeze process to control the flow of water and Anti-Freeze solution. The water control valve will be left in the ON position or high pressure setting during most of the Anti-Freeze process. Never Anti-Freeze a high pressure jetting unit with a nozzle or drain jet extension attached to the end of the high pressure jetting hose

Anti-Freeze System

Read Thoroughly Before Starting To Anti-Freeze Unit


For initial or beginning of season use: Note the level of Anti-Freeze within the tank using the sightglass tube mounted on the side of the Anti-Freeze tank. If the tube is dirty, remove and clean. It is important to be able to distinguish fluid color & level throughout the winter season. If necessary, clean & flush the Anti-Freeze tank prior to use at the beginning of the season.

Note: For future reference that the level in the sightglass, this will
be the minimum fluid amount required to Anti-Freeze the system.

Anti-Freeze System
To Purge and Recover Anti-Freeze From The Unit For Reuse:
Read Thoroughly Before Starting To AntiFreeze Unit
1. Remove / open the AntiFreeze tank fill cap. Always remove the AntiFreeze tank cap when Anti-Freezing the system or purging Anti-Freeze from the system. 2. Note the Anti-Freeze solution level in the sightglass. If the sightglass indicates a high fluid level of above two-thirds of a tank, it may be necessary to drain off some AntiFreeze solution to prevent the Anti-Freeze from overfilling the tank. AntiFreeze solution can be drained into a container or pail through the main tank drain valve. 3. Fill water tank with water. Removal or purging of Anti-Freeze can begin when tank contains about 30 gallons of water. 4. Detach the high pressure hose from Return To Anti-Freeze Line connector. 5. Place hydraulic reel control valve in the detent or free spin position (locked in the down position) and manually pull off +/- 20 feet of hose. 6. Insert the end of the high pressure jetting hose into the top of the Anti-Freeze tank. Allow for two feet of the hose to remain inside the tank. 7. Close shutoff valve at base of Anti-Freeze tank. 8. Open shutoff valve between water tank and water filter. 9. Open (briefly) pump prime valve to determine if pump is frozen. Water or AntiFreeze solution may come out or air may be sucked into the system, either is an indication the pump is not frozen. 10. Set water selector valve to the ON position.

Remote Control System, turn the ignition key to the ON position then turn water selector knob to the ON position. Allow time (5 seconds) for the actuator to activate the water selector valve to the ON position. 11. Start the engine and then proceed immediately to grasp end of high pressure hose located in Anti-Freeze tank. Use two people to complete this task if available. 12. Slowly remove the high pressure jetting hose from the Anti-Freeze tank until the water stream (colored due to the presence of Anti-Freeze) is visible while maintaining the colored water flow into the Anti-Freeze tank. A one inch gap between the end of the hose and the Anti-Freeze tank fill spout is acceptable. 13. When colored water flow changes to clear water, remove water flow from entering the Anti-Freeze tank, allow water to spill on the ground. 14. Shut water flow OFF at the water control valve. If unit is equipped with GEN II Wireless Remote Control System, turn water selector knob to the OFF position. Allow the engine to continue to run at an idle. 15. Continue to allow water to fill water tank until full. 16. The unit is now ready to operate for high pressure jetting work.

In severe cold environments (below 32 Farenheit or 0Centigrade), operators should be aware of potential hazards and other factors & conditions that could result in a frozen high pressure jetting unit. When not jetting, allow the engine to idle so water will circulate through the unit and not freeze. Turning the engine OFF can result in localized freezing of components that will prohibit use of unit until thawed. Always test for unrestricted water flow (without an attached nozzle) through high pressure jetting hoses (including Mini Jet or Micro Jet hose kits) prior to attaching a nozzle to the high pressure jetting hose). Do not lay high pressure hose on the ground. If unavoidable, flush water through the hose periodically to prevent an ice blockage by quickly turning the water control valve ON and OFF. Hoses that lay on the ground without water moving through the hose can freeze in minutes. Periodically turn the Jump Jet Valve ON then OFF to prevent Jump Jet lines from freezing. Never use the high pressure water to clear ice blockages from within a frozen high pressure jetting hose including Mini Jet or Micro Jet hose kits. Ice blockages dislodged by high pressure water can shoot from the high pressure hose as deadly projectiles. If a high pressure jetting hose does freeze, stop work immediately. Drain all water from the water storage tank (open main drain shut-off valve), with the engine running and the water selector valve in the return to tank position. After all the water has drained from the tank, close the tank shut-off valve and the main drain shut-off valve. Open the Anti-Freeze tank shut-off valve and allow Anti-Freeze to enter the pump. With the water selector valve in the dump or re-circulate position, the Anti-Freeze solution will go directly into the water storage tank. This will

provide freeze protection for the high pressure pump, water filter and other system components. The unit should be placed in a warm garage to allow the high pressure hose to thaw before being used again. Be aware of ice formation from water leaving the high pressure jetting unit that may cause slip or fall hazards for operators, workers or passersby. If a high pressure jetting unit or any component has been exposed to cold weather that resulted operational failure due to freezing, extreme care must be used when operating the unit after thawing. Operators must check for any signs of damage from a freeze - thaw cycle. All damage from a freeze thaw cycle must be repaired before using the high pressure jetting unit.

Water Flow By-Pass Valve


Most US Jetting High Pressure Jetting units include a Water Flow By-Pass valve for fine tuning of water pressure and flow adjustments as needed with certain jetting nozzles and reduced diameter accessory hose kits. Water Flow By-Pass valves are available in two different styles, one with a black knob and the other with a tee handle. Although different in appearance, both are equal in function & pressure ratings. US Jetting manufactures and ships high pressure jetting units with standard size nozzles with precision drilled nozzle orifices to provide maximum pressure and water flow to complement each unit. Use of the standard size nozzles will allow the unit to operate at 4,000 PSI at full engine power with the Water Flow By-Pass Valve in the closed position.

Location of the Flow By-Pass Valve is always adjacent to Water Selector Valve. Arrow on valve indicates relative position only.

Use of nozzles by other manufacturers that do not precisely match unit specifications (i.e. correct pressure with reduce water flow) or use of smaller diameter hose cleaning kits may require opening the ByPass valve to reduce pressurized water flow to prevent overpressurization and rupture of pressure relief disc. Water Flow By-Pass Valves allows the operator to divert excess pressurized water flow to the water tank

Flow By-Pass Valve


while maintaining overall precise pressure control within the system. Use of the Flow By-Pass allows the Operator to better control and set desired operating pressure in addition to the engine throttle. Use of the Flow By-Pass Control Valve prevents poor engine performance or engine loading at low engine speeds. When using the Flow By-Pass Valve, it is best to open the valve a quarter turn, raise engine RPMs then adjust to the desired pressure by adjusting the Flow By-Pass valve to the desired pressure. CAUTION: When using reduced diameter accessory hose kits such as the Micro Mini-Jet and the Mini-Jet kits, the Flow By-Pass Valve should be opened a quarter of a turn (counterclockwise) to prevent pump over-pressurization and reduce engine loading at low engine speeds. This is always true when using Micro Mini-Jet kits that have the smallest internal hose diameter. Failure to partially open the Flow By-Pass Valve may result in the unnecessary rupture of the pressure relief disk.

Colored Safety Leader Hose


All US Jetting High Pressure Jetting units configured for use in sewer and drain cleaning applications should always have a 10 safety colored leader hose attached to the end of the primary jetting hose. The Colored Safety Leader Hose is rated for the same or greater pressure than the main sewer jetting hose. This serves multiple purposes, such as: Acts as a safety indicator to warn to the operator the nozzle (and its high pressure water stream) is less than 10 feet from the entry point of the pipe by the visible color change . Acts as a sacrificial piece of hose that is susceptible to abrasive wear from the water and debris stream from the nozzle, thus protecting the integrity and length of the main jetting hose The Colored Safety Leader Hose should be left attached to the main jetting hose at all times for operator convenience. The Colored Safety Leader Hose should be secured to the main hose with teflon tape and secured with wrenches to eliminate pressure and water leaks.

Colored Safety Leader Hose & Tiger Tail Hose Protector Should Always Be Used For Sewer & Drain Cleaning Operations.

Tiger Tail Hose Protectors


Tiger Tail Hose Protectors should always be used to prolong the life of the high pressure jetting hose. Tiger Tails provide a smooth surface for the jetting hose when transitioning the bend at the bottom of the manhole or at pipe entry point. This prevents the hose from gouging and resulting coating peeling. Tiger Tails are available in three diameter sizes; 3, 2 and 1-1/2. Tiger Tails should be used whenever possible and including use with smaller diameter hose kits. All Tiger Tails have a length of nylon rope attached so the Tiger Tail can be secured to the jetting unit to prevent movement or loss.

Not Using Tiger Tails Improper jetting method of line cleaning can cause hose damage and unnecessary hose wear.

Wrong!

Tiger Tail Hose Protectors can be used in various places to reduce friction wear on high pressure jetting hose. All high pressure jetting units should have at least two Tiger Tail hose protectors for special applications.

Trailer Chassis & Brake Systems


Connecting a US Jetting trailer mounted unit to a tow vehicle should always be performed with the utmost care and precision. US Jetting offers trailer units with 2 5/16 ball type hitches. On smaller type units, a 2 ball type hitch may be used. Be sure that the tow vehicle has the proper matching size ball before connecting to the high pressure jetting unit. An optional pintle eye hitch is available. The tow vehicle should be equipped with the appropriate weight rated trailer hitch, electrical wiring connection and possess a Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) rating equal to or greater than required to tow the high pressure jetting unit. Every time the unit is connected to the tow vehicle, the operator must check Jetting unit trailer hitch for defects or damage. The trailer ball diameter on the tow vehicle for proper size. Use of a smaller diameter trailer ball will allow the trailer to become detached during transport. Tow vehicle hitch for defects, damage or loose mounting. Hitch safety pins are properly installed and secured. Check and attach two safety chains to tow vehicle. Breakaway safety brake cable is properly attached to the tow vehicle. Connect electrical trailer plug to tow vehicle & check all light functions including brake activation for units equipped with electrical brakes. All tires for proper inflation and excessive tire tread wear. If any defects are discovered during the connection or hitching process, the unit shall not be used or towed until all defects have been corrected. US Jetting units that are manufactured on a trailer chassis are similar in many aspects. All US Jetting manufactured high pressure jetting units, whether single or tandem axle models are equipped with a braking system. Individual axles contains a braking system. All US Jetting units contain an industry approved standard modular electrical connector for trailer brake lights, turn signals, tail lights and side marker lights. US Jetting offers two types of braking systems, with each type of system easily identifiable; an electric mechanical system (most common style) and a hydraulic system.

Electric Trailer Braking System:


The electric brakes are activated by a electric brake control system located within the towing vehicle. Electric brake controllers are not supplied as part of the US Jetting trailer unit. The electric brake controller is connected to the US Jetting unit by 7 pin industry standard trailer electrical connector.

Trailer Chassis & Brake Systems


Electric Brake Controllers: All brands of electric brake controllers may differ in operation. Refer to the owners manual of the brake controller for proper methods of use and adjustment. When towing high pressure jetting units, the weight can vary greatly depending upon the amount of water in the water storage tank. Testing of the electric braking system should be performed every time the high pressure jetting unit is connected to the tow vehicle. The electric brakes can be actuated for test purposes using the manual activation switch on the electric brake controller. With the tow vehicle moving slowly, manually apply the trailer brakes to stop both the tow vehicle and jetting unit. The electric brake controller should be adjusted to compensate for the water load (empty or full) contained within the high pressure jetting unit to maintain proper braking power . If the electric brake system does operate as tested, do not use or tow unit until repairs have been made.

Electric Brake Breakaway Safety System The electric brake system contains a breakaway brake activation system. The system is powered by a 12 volt DC sealed lead acid battery mounted within a plastic case on the trailer frame. A thin wire braided cable is connected to the activation switch with the other end of the wire cable for connection to the tow vehicle. The breakaway cable should be attached separately to the tow vehicle, never to be attached to the safety chains or any part of the jetting unit.

Trailer Chassis & Brake Systems


Hydraulic Braking System
The hydraulic braking system is also known as an overrun or surge braking system. Hydraulic brakes operate independent of the tow vehicle without the need of a brake controller. The brakes are applied by a load sensing brake actuator incorporated within the trailer hitch mechanism. As the tow vehicle slows down or stops, braking power is

applied. The braking power is increased, decreased or released proportionally to the speed of the tow vehicle. The hydraulic braking system does not require power from the tow vehicle to actuate the braking system. The hydraulic braking system cannot be applied or actuated from the tow vehicle. This style of braking system is based upon an automotive brake drum system complete with ratchet adjusters. The hydraulic braking system contains a brake fluid reservoir located directly behind the hitch. Brake fluid level should be checked periodically and replenished when necessary with a type DOT3 Motor Vehicle Brake Fluid approved brand. Hydraulic Braking Safety Breakaway System The hydraulic braking system includes a brake actuating system to apply brakes in

case the jetting unit accidentally becomes detached from the tow vehicle. A small wire cable is permanently attached at one end to a brake actuator arm. The other end of the cable must be independently attached to the tow vehicle to activate brakes in case of separation. Electrical Trailer Connections For Hydraulic Brake Systems Units equipped with hydraulic brake systems can have a 6 pin round electrical connector or a 4 pin flat plastic modular connector. On the 6 pin connector, pins dedicated to power the electric brake system are not used.

Chassis Maintenance
Wheel Bearing Lubrication: All axles used in the manufacture of US Jetting units contain easy-lube wheel bearings. A zerk or grease fitting is located in the center hub of each wheel, behind a reusable rubber cover. Each wheel bearing (2 on a single axle, 4 on a tandem axle) should be greased every 6,000 miles or every six months. Jackstand Maintenance: Every three months, the jackstand should be lubricated. Apply a light coating of grease to the jackstand when fully extended. Operate - raise and lower jackstand to spread grease over gears. Tires: Check tire air pressure to match manufacturers cold / hot pressure limits. Manufacturers recommended tire pressure requirements can be found molded in the tire sidewall. Wheels: Every three months or 6,000 miles, re-torque wheel lug nuts to 70 foot pounds. Brake Lines: For units with hydraulic brake systems, check both metal and flexible brake lines for damage such as fluid leaks, kinks, pinching or cracking. Replace brake line component that displays any type of wear damage.

Pump Lubrication
Lubrication systems must be checked at two different points on the pump body. 1. Crankcase oil level is visually checked by the oil sight glass mounted in the crankcase cover. The crankcase oil level should intersect the center of the RED dot located in the center of the sight glass. If the oil level is low, remove the fill cap on the top of the pump to add oil. Add oil slowly while monitoring the oil level at the sight glass. Use only recommended pump oil specified in the lubricant section of this manual.

Oil Sight Glass


2. Every 50 hours, the three cylinders need to be lubricated. Each cylinder is lubricated by an individual wick. There is no method to check the lubricant level, only to replenish the oil supply. Remove the plastic caps, add oil and replace plastic cap. This should only require several drops of oil per wick.

Priming RPD Pumps


RPD Pumps do not create suction or draw for pump priming. Before use, a gravity head of water must be present. This can be accomplished opening the two water bleed screws (Tee handles) and then by filling the water tank. When water starts to leak from the bleed screws, close the screws & continue filling the water tank. To Prime RPD Pumps: 1. Set water selector valve to Return to Tank or dump position. 2. Start engine and set throttle to idle. 3. Open each bleed screw until water comes out, then close. This should be performed using hands only, never use wrenches or pliers. 4. Air from the system should be purged and the RPD pump is ready to use.

NOTE: NEVER OPEN BLEED SCREWS WHEN PUMP IS OPERATING UNDER HIGH PRESSURE. WATER AT HIGH PRESSURE WILL ESCAPE AND MAY CAUSE PHYSICAL INJURIES.

RPD Pump Maintenance Details


Internal pump oil level is critical to maintain proper pump performance. Always check pump oil level when pump is cold. Do not overfill oil level on a cold pump as heated oil expansion will overflow out of the fill cap. If oil level is extremely low, bleeding the oil from the top two barrels may be required (see pump fluid oil changes for bleeding procedures).

RPD Pump Oil Changes
Oil changes on RPD Pumps can easily be performed using simple hand tools. All oil & filter changes should be performed when unit is cold. To change pump oil, the following tools and items are required: 10 Adjustable Wrench 6 Mm open end wrench Oil drain bucket with 2 gallon capacity Plastic sheeting or drop cloths Wipe cloths or shop rags

DO NOT Start or Run Engine When Changing Pump Oil


1. Place drain bucket under the center of the pump directly below the pump oil drain plug. 2. Remove oil fill cap from top of pump. 3. Remove drain plug from base, allow oil to drain into bucket 4. Allow 15 minutes for oil to thoroughly drain from pump 5. Replace drain plug in base, do not cross thread or over tighten plug. 6. Using a funnel, refill the pump crankcase with oil until oil level covers the copper tube but is below the lower lip at the base of the oil expansion reservoir. This should require 1.6 gallons of oil. See lubricant chart for details on specific oil to be used. 7. Replace the oil fill cap. 8. Bleed oil from barrels - see next section Note: There is no oil filter to be changed or replaced on the RPD pump. Every time the pump oil is changed, the air from inside of each barrel will need to be purged or bled from the pump. On the front side of the pump, each barrel contains an oil bleed screw facing upward.

Diesel Engine Power Sources


Diesel engines fitted to US Jetting units are carefully selected for their specific power ranges required to drive US Jetting High Pressure Pumps and auxiliary systems. The primary engines used are:

Hatz Diesel Engines Deutz Diesel Engines Lombardini Diesel Engines Kibota Diesel Engines

Full operating details and parts lists are available in the engine manufacturers handbook supplied with your high pressure jetting unit. The following however, is a brief summary of engine starting and running considerations:

FUEL LEVEL
Fuel level within the tank can be determined by means of an electric gauge mounted on the control panel, with the ignition key in the On position. Diesel fuel should be purchased from a commercial fuel vendor at the pump, never from a transfer tank to reduce fuel contamination. The fuel system contains a fine mesh screen inside the filler cap, and two inline fuel filters between the fuel tank and diesel engine to reduce fuel contamination. Details on the inline fuel filters can be located in the engine manufacturers manual. Diesel fuel is to be added to the fuel tank using a clean funnel with fine mesh filter.

DIESEL ENGINE OIL LEVEL


The oil level on all diesel engines should be checked on a daily basis or every 8 hours of continuous engine use. Diesel engine oil level is checked by using a selfcontained dipstick system. The position of the dipstick varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, check the engine manufactures manual for exact location.

USE ENGINE OIL RECOMMENDED BY THE ENGINE MANUFACTURER FOR OPERATION IN APPROPRIATE ENVIRONMENTS.

Note: Check engine manufacturers manual for recommended oil and filter change intervals Refer to Engine Manufacturers Manual For Troubleshooting Engine Related Problems

How High Pressure Jetting Units Operate


All high pressure jetting units are constructed in a similar manner with few variations. Differences in units by manufacturers vary, but the main component of high pressure jetting unit is the high pressure pump. Pumps that can operate reliably over periods of time at high pressure is the quality difference between high pressure units. All high pressure jetting units contain four major components. 1. 2. 3. 4. Power source or engine High pressure water pump High pressure water delivery system Nozzles or tools

Engine: The engine or power source must produce enough horsepower to create water under the desired pressure and flow. The higher the water pressure with a corresponding increase in water flow will require a more powerful engine. Engines can be gasoline, diesel or propane fueled and can be an electric motor in some applications. High pressure water pump: The pump must be capable of reliably producing pressurized water at the desired flow. The pump must be able to withstand the strains of producing pressurized water and

How High Pressure Jetting Units Operate


the strain produced by the engine. Pump seals and packing must be able to withstand the stress created by the pressurized water, with maintenance reduced to a minimum. Pumps should be capable of running dry or running out of water without damage or failure. Pumps should include a safety system to prevent pump damage and hose rupture in the event of over-pressurization. High pressure delivery system: Delivering water from the pump to the work area is critical. High pressure hose must be capable of withstanding the pressure of the water and to deliver the volume of water produced by the pump to the area where needed. The high pressure hose must be flexible to allow for delivery versatility. Typically, high pressure jetting hoses have a minimum 2.5 to 1 operating safety factor, i.e. a 4,000 PSI rated high pressure jetting hose should have a minimum safety burst rating of 10,000 PSI (US Jetting hose has a minimum burst rating of 16,000PSI). High pressure jetting hoses are always considered to be wear items, requiring constant inspection for defects and replacement when necessary. Usable lifespan of a high pressure hose is directly related to the proper use by operators in the field. Damage to a high pressure hose can occur at any time, including the first few minutes of use. Abrasion and cuts in the hose coating frequently occur when a Tiger Tail hose guide is not used when sewer cleaning. Nozzles or tools: Nozzles or tools are attached to the end of the high pressure jetting hose to create & utilize high pressure water for practical applications. All nozzles, tools and spray guns are designed with orifices to create a water flow restriction, thus creating the desired water pressure. For sewer jetting, nozzles create the proper restriction to create desired water pressure and corresponding flow. Other nozzles or tools can use the pressurized water to rotate chain scrapers or milling heads. A high pressure spray gun is another type of tool commonly utilized by high pressure jetting units. Note: The length of high pressure hose is a critical factor in determining the orifice size of nozzles, tools and guns. As a standard, US Jetting designs nozzles, tools and guns based upon a 500 foot length of hose. If a nozzle is placed on a shorter length of hose, for example a 100 foot length, the maximum pressure achieved will be reduced by about 400 PSI. In operational mode, the engine powers or turns the high pressure jetting pump. Water is drawn from the water tank into the pump and pumped out of the pump. With the water control switch / valve in the Off position, water is pumped back into the water tank for future use. Since there is no restriction on this part of the system, the water is not under pressure.

How High Pressure Jetting Units Operate


When high pressure water is required, the water control switch / valve is turned to the On position. This action diverts the water flow from returning to the tank and routes the water to the hose reel and high pressure jetting hose. With a nozzle attached to the end of the high pressure jetting hose, the nozzle creates a water flow restriction. This restriction thus creates pressure. Additional engine horsepower or more engine speed (RPMs) will be required to push the water through the nozzle orifices to obtain maximum pressure and flow (4,000 PSI @ 18 GPM). Other components of high pressure jetting units such as water storage tanks and mountings (trailers, trucks or skids) are not considered to be an integral part of the high pressure jetting unit. Water tank capacity and mountings vary to suit application requirements and do not effect the performance of high pressure jetting units pressure and flow.

Basic Nozzle Selection


Proper nozzle selection is important for the efficient use of any high pressure sewer jetting unit. Operators need to make the correct nozzle selection for the best performance and efficient use of high pressure jetting unit. Top Image: Shows a high pressure nozzle with a forward jet in an open or unclogged pipe. Forward water at pressure serves no useful purpose in pipe cleaning for this scenario and can actually push debris away from the rear nozzle jets. Middle Image: Shows an all rear nozzle, using all water at pressure to pull the high pressure jetting hose while cleaning the pipe wall surface. When inside of a pipe, the water pressure from the rear nozzles create water flow and a rear directional venturi vacuum to wash debris down pipe. Rear firing nozzles should always be used when pipe has water flow. Bottom Image: Use a forward firing jet to bore a path through a blockage to restore flow. Maximum cleaning power is always achieved from the rear nozzle jets, not the forward jet. In this type of application, the forward jet is required to bore a hole large enough to allow the rear nozzle jets access to the clog to enlarge or remove the remainder of a blockage. Once a clogged pipe has been opened or flow has been restored, operators should change to an all rear firing nozzle then perform a repeated pipe cleaning to ensure a thoroughly clean pipe.

Basic Nozzle Selection


The principles of sewer & drain cleaning of large and small diameter pipes is very similar no matter what type of high pressure jetting unit is utilized. Differences are determined by water pressure, water flow, high pressure jetting hose diameter, nozzles employed, the reliability of the high pressure pump and the engine power source. Nozzle selection is critical for the proper and efficient completion of every pipe cleaning task. Training and field repetitive experience is the only method of developing good high pressure jetting skills and the ability to select the proper nozzle for individual cleaning tasks. The main function of all high pressure jetting nozzles is to: 1. Provide the proper restriction to the high pressure jetting pump via the high pressure jetting hose thus creating the optimum pressure and flow. 2. To direct streams of pressurized water stream in a specific direction and angle for hose propulsion and / or cleaning of pipe wall surfaces. US Jetting units are shipped with two basic nozzles as standard equipment, one 3 Rear, 1 Forward RPD nozzle and one 6 (or three) Rear Nozzle. The 3 rear, 1 Forward RPD nozzle has 3 rear jets dedicated for cleaning and propulsion with the forward nozzle utilize to clear an opening in any blockage encountered that restricts the nozzles movement. The forward jet only utilizes 10% of the water flow, with the remaining 90% used for propulsion and cleaning. The diverted (10%) water reduces nozzle propulsion by 20%. The six (or three) rear RPD nozzle utilizes all pressured water for maximum propulsion and cleaning. The 3 Rear, 1 Forward nozzle should be limited in use in clogged lines. When the blockage is removed and flow restored, the 3 rear,1 forward nozzle should be removed with an all rear nozzle used for additional cleaning passes. The above two RPD nozzles are sized and factory tested to match the maximum pressure and flow output of the US Jetting high pressure pump. A key fact to remember, nozzles that have the same number of orifices either front or rear, can be different. The design of a nozzle is based upon the total area of all the nozzle orifices combined. This total area is used to calculate the pressure and flow of the nozzle.. Nozzles are designed to produce the correct amount of pressure while at the same time allowing the correct amount of water flow to pass through the nozzle. If the nozzle holes are too big, maximum pressure at full engine throttle cannot be achieved. If the nozzle holes are too small, maximum water pressure but not maximum flow will be achieved before maximum engine throttle achieved. Holes that are too small restrict only the water flow, not the pressure which (if engine throttle increase is continued) will result in an over-pressurization event causing the pressure disc to rupture. This same over-pressurization event can occur if the proper sized nozzle is used with dirt or debris blocking one or more of the nozzle orifices. NOTE: The 3 Rear, 1 Forward should always be used when a drain line is clogged to

remove the blockage and restore flow

All RPD nozzles can be opened for easy cleaning & inspection Storm drain or culvert nozzles are used to clean heavy debris buildup on the bottom of large diameter pipes. These style nozzles normally contain all rear firing jets in a heavier, larger nozzle body. The purpose of the nozzle is to remain on the bottom of the pipe, concentrating all pressurized water to the accumulated bottom debris.

Sample pictures of storm drain nozzles Spinning and rotating nozzles clean pipes without leaving striations on the pipe wall surface. Spinning and rotating nozzles are normally more effective in cleaning small roots that have a tendency to be pushed aside by nozzles with fixed water streams. Spinning and rotating nozzles can have forward firing jets, jets firing perpendicular to the nozzle body, angled jets that rotate and provide propulsion and some with fixed jets dedicated for propulsion. Due to the spinning or rotating gland in the nozzle, these nozzles are more expensive than fixed nozzles and require periodic maintenance.

Examples of Spinning Nozzles

Chain flails and milling nozzles are used to remove hard scale buildup inside of pipes or other types of unusual obstructions. Similar in design to spinning & rotating nozzles, the high pressure water is used to rotate or turn chains or a milling head. Some or all of the high pressure water is also used to provide nozzle propulsion.

Nozzle Cleaning & Maintenance


Nozzle maintenance is critical for the safe and efficient operation of high pressure jetting units. Clogged nozzle jets can cause over pressurization of the high pressure jetting unit with the result of a burst pressure disk. Clogged jets will result in the unit going to the operating pressure at less than maximum engine speed with a reduction in water flow output. The inline water filter is designed to prevent dirt and debris from going through the pump, thus preventing dirt & debris from clogging a nozzle orifice. Dirt and debris that causes a nozzle blockage occurs from handling or storage of the nozzle. Operators need to be aware of this fact for better operation. When a clogged nozzle is discovered, proper procedures must be followed for cleaning a nozzle: 1. Never clean a nozzle while attached to a high pressure jetting hose or to a safety dump gun. 2. Always clean dirt or debris from the nozzle working from the outside of the nozzle and pushing debris to the inside of the nozzle. 3. Flush the inside of the nozzle with clean water to wash out loose debris particles. Wet debris has a tendency to cling in the internal chamber of the nozzle and will again clog a nozzle when next used.

Nozzle Cleaning & Maintenance


Cleaning other styles of nozzles will vary. Nozzles with nozzle inserts may require the nozzle insert to be removed from the nozzle body for cleaning. Rotary or spinning nozzles may required to be disassembled to access the gland or bearing for cleaning (or lubrication). One piece or precision drilled nozzles can cleaned using simple tools and visually checking the internal nozzle cavity.

Basic Operating Instructions


For units equipped with the factory installed Gen II Wireless Remote Control System, refer to detailed operating directions within the Gen II Wireless Remote Control Section (Page 128). Do Not Use or Refer to directions contained in this section.
High pressure jetting is a skill developed over time through field experience. Variations in pipe conditions, pipe diameters, pipeline access and various types of debris encountered on a day to day basis will constantly challenge operators abilities. Operators will always be learning from past experiences to complete future work tasks. Operators should be familiar with the location of all unit components before continuing. Starting the high pressure jetting unit: 1. Complete unit maintenance checklist. 2. Open water shut-off valve to allow water to enter pump. 3. Open air bleed valve on pump, close when water appears. 4. Turn Water Selector Valve to the OFF position. 5. Turn Jump Jet System valve to OFF position. 6. Close the water Flow ByPass valve to the OFF position. 7. Position throttle cable to idle position. 8. Turn ignition key to ON position, check LED indicator lights for function. 9. Open throttle one half turn counterclockwise. 10. Turn ignition key to engage starter motor, start engine. 11. Allow engine to run, return throttle cable to idle position. NOTE: Operators should connect nozzles or tool to the high pressure jetting hose, then position hose within the pipe to be cleaned with the safety colored leader hose and hose guide protector. If a high pressure safety dump gun is to be used, refer to the manual section on High Pressure Safety Dump Guns for specific instructions. Operating the high pressure jetting unit under pressure with the half-inch high pressure jetting hose: To begin high pressure sewer jetting, with nozzle, drain jet extension, skid, safety leader hose and tiger tail hose protector placed within the pipe: 1. Start high pressure jetting unit (above steps 1 through 11). 2. Turn the Water Selector Valve to the ON position. 3. Increase the engine speed using the throttle cable while viewing either pressure gauge until the pressure reaches 4,000 PSI. The throttle can be increased in two

ways: 1. Turn the throttle knob counterclockwise 2. Press center red button on throttle cable while pulling on the throttle knob. When the unit reaches the desired pressure, the operator can begin jetting. Using the hydraulic reel control valve, allow the hose reel to dispense hose at a rate equal to the movement of the high pressure jetting within the pipe. Hose slack falling into an open manhole is an indication that hose is being dispensed too fast. Operators should always maintain some hose tension, never allowing excess hose slack to accumulate in the manhole. Operators need to be careful of excess hose un-spooling on the hose reel, an event that will occur if the hose is dispensed faster than the hose is traveling in the pipe. Always rewind the high pressure jetting hose under pressure (except for the last few feet). In normal applications, the rewinding process of the hose provides for the most effective pipe cleaning results. The high pressure hose should be rewound slowly for better cleaning results. When rewinding the high pressure hose, operators should: Use the hose reel guide to align and distribute the high pressure hose evenly across the face of the hose reel. Inspect the high pressure jetting hose for any type of damage (cuts or abrasions) during the hose winding that may result in premature hose failure. When jetting is completed, to stop the jetting process: 1. Decrease engine throttle to the idle position. The throttle can be decreased in two ways: 1. Turn the throttle knob clockwise to the idle position. 2. Press center red button on throttle cable while pushing in the throttle knob. 2. Turn the Water Selector Valve to the OFF position. 3. Retrieve nozzle and hose from pipe. Turning the High Pressure Water Selector Valve ON or OFF while engine is running at any elevated engine speed is not recommended. This can result in premature wear or failure of internal Water Selector Valve seals. In summary: 1. Water Selector ON 2. Throttle Up Engine 3. Throttle Down Engine 4. Water Selector

Manhole To Manhole Sewer Cleaning


Sanitary sewer systems or wastewater collection systems is the method of community wastewater collection for delivery to a wastewater treatment facility. Lateral sewer pipes from buildings and residences connect to municipal owned sewer pipes. These pipes normally range in size from 8 and larger. The majority of municipal sewer lines run in the 8, 10 & 12 inch range. As the flow capacity becomes larger, the pipes increase in size, especially when nearing the sewage treatment plant. Access to these sewer pipes for cleaning maintenance is through structures called manholes. Manholes are sometimes used as junctions points for several sewer lines or to change the direction of flow of sewage.

Manholes are considered to be Confined Spaces, therefore no person shall enter a manhole without proper Confined Space Entry Training, proper safety equipment, gas detector monitoring air quality and fully completed Confined Space Entry Permit. When working around manholes, especially when working on roadways, it is recommended that three persons participate in the sewer cleaning work. When working over open manholes, it is recommended that Operators never work alone. Additional assistance is required for traffic safety, worksite safety and to assist operator as necessary.

High pressure sewer jetting has become the preferred and most effective method of cleaning sanitary wastewater collection systems. High pressure water removes accumulated grease buildup from pipe walls while washes dirt and debris downstream. At the correct pressure water can cut and remove root infiltration.

Manhole To Manhole Sewer Cleaning


All laterals pose similar problems when using high pressure jetting to clean sewer lines. A nozzle on the end of a high pressure jetting hose does not always travel straight, sometimes turning to travel up a lateral. To prevent this from occurring, use of a drain jet extension (a length of stainless steel pipe) to connect the nozzle to the high pressure jetting hose is recommended. The addition of the drain jet extension prevents the nozzle from turning into and traveling up the lateral connection. Use of a drain jet extension will also prevent a nozzle from turning back within a pipe. High pressure sewer jetting will not harm most types of sewer pipes. High pressure jetting can cause a broken or damaged pipe to collapse. Orangeburg pipe, a tar and fiber based pipe should not be cleaned using high pressure jetting.

Routine Sewer Line Jetting


Routine maintenance of a sewer line is common practice for many municipalities. Sewer cleaning on a periodic basis helps to prevent sewer blockages by cleaning grease, debris or removing root masses before a blockage can occur. Many municipalities budget to conduct preventative maintenance sewer cleaning programs in an effort to reduce or eliminate blockages. Sewer cleaning of pipes prior to video pipe inspections (CCTV inspections) is another typical application. When sewer jetting a main sanitary sewer line, operators must be aware of not only the subsurface conditions but also the surface surroundings . Most manholes are located on streets, roads or highways so operator and public safety is a critical concern. When cleaning sanitary sewers, it is best to work from the downstream manhole, sewer jetting to the upstream manhole. This allows all debris to flow downstream with the sewage current. Set-Up: 1. Determine the downstream and upstream manhole locations of the pipeline section to be cleaned. 2. Determine the appropriate traffic safety procedures and equipment to maintain the safe flow of traffic 3. Setup safe work area around the downstream manhole for placement of the high pressure jetting unit. 4. Position the high pressure jetting unit in the work area with the hose reel guide centered over the manhole, if possible, place the high pressure jetting unit on the downstream side of the downstream manhole. 5. Remove the manhole cover and position away from the opening 6. Observe the pipes at the manhole invert. Estimate the pipe diameter, presence of any sewerage flow and any visible debris

7. Select the appropriate size nozzle, drain jet extension and skid (optional). For routine or periodic pipeline cleaning, an all rear firing nozzle should be selected. For a line with a blockage, a nozzle with a forward firing jet should be selected. 8. Check the water control valve, make sure the valve is in the Off position. 9. Start High pressure jetting unit (See Unit Start Procedures) 10. Un-spool an amount of high pressure hose equal to the depth of the manhole plus an additional 10 feet of hose. Be sure the hydraulic reel control valve is in the center position when done, preventing the hose reel from turning. 11. Thread the high pressure hose through hose reel roller guide. 12. Thread the high pressure hose through Tiger Tail Hose Protector, start at the end of the Tiger Tail that the yellow nylon rope is attached to. 13. Test for water flow, by turning the water control valve On then Off, engine at idle. 14. Attach drain jet extension, skid (option) and selected nozzle 15. Using two hands, grab the nylon rope in one hand and the high pressure jetting hose in the other, lower the nozzle to the pipe opening. If possible, use a slight swaying motion to place the nozzle within the pipe. 16. Turn the high pressure water On momentarily to allow the nozzle and half of the colored safety leader hose to enter into the pipe. 17. Lower the Tiger Tail Hose Guide to place half of the Tiger Tail within the pipe. Tie the nylon rope connected to the hose guide to the high pressure jetting unit to maintain the position of the placement of the hose guide. Note: When high pressure jetting from a manhole, catch basin or clean-out where the hose reel can be positioned over the access point, it is recommended that the Gen II remote control NOT be used. Operators should use the controls mounted on the high pressure jetting unit. 18. Turn the water control valve ON.

Manhole To Manhole Sewer Cleaning


19. Using the throttle, raise the engine speed (RPMs) while observing the pressure gauge to set desired pressure, typically 4,000 PSI. This should result in the movement of the high pressure jetting hose up the pipe, placing tension on the high pressure jetting hose. 20. Using the hydraulic reel control valve, slowly un-spool the high pressure jetting hose always maintaining tension on the high pressure jetting hose. 21. Continue jetting until the high pressure jetting hose reaches the upstream manhole. 22. Retrieve or rewind the high pressure jetting hose until the colored safety leader hose becomes visible at the downstream manhole. If required, multiple cleaning passes can be made. 23. Turn water control valve OFF. 24. Reset throttle cable to idle position. The above is a simplified version of what can be expected in the field. Other conditions to be encountered and some operating tips are: If the high pressure jetting hose stops or will not continue to go up the pipe, operators should rewind the hose several feet, then attempt to go up the line again. If the high pressure jetting hose will not go up the pipe, operators should use the Jump Jet Pulsation System. Operators should reduce engine (RPMs) throttle to idle, turn the water control valve Off and then turn the Jump Jet System valve to On. Operators then should turn the water control valve to ON and increase the engine speed (RPMs) to increase the pressure to 1500 PSI. Note that the pressure gauge will fluctuate or bounce and the high pressure jetting hose will begin to vibrate or pulse. With the Jump Jet System in operational mode, continue to allow the high pressure jetting hose to go up the pipeline. When the nozzle reaches the upstream manhole, turn OFF the Jump Jet System by first reducing engine throttle (RPMs) and the water control valve. Rewind the high pressure jetting hose under full pressure at 4,000 PSI. Try reducing pressure to see if nozzle with go further up the pipe. Exchange nozzles and retry. Operators should monitor the base of the manhole for continuous water flow from the high pressure jetting nozzle. If water flow ceases, this could indicate the formation of a blockage between the nozzle and the manhole. Operators should rewind the high pressure jetting hose until water flow resumes. When attempting to open a line with a blockage (always use a nozzle with a forward jet), operators should monitor water flow at the base of the manhole. Water from the nozzle should be continuous with a large surge in increased water flow when the blockage is removed. In some cases, the nozzle can pass through a blockage without the removal of the blockage. When this occurs, visible water flow will decrease or cease. Operators should rewind the high pressure hose under pressure until the water flow resumes and then continue to remove the blockage

Manhole To Manhole Sewer Cleaning


(sometimes the blockage will be removed when rewinding the high pressure jetting hose). When attempting to open a line with a blockage (always use a nozzle with a forward jet), operators should monitor for an increase in water flow or a surge. This is an indication that a pipe blockage has been removed. Operators should reverse the direction of the nozzle to re-clean the pipe section where the blockage was located. When working on a clogged manhole to manhole section of sewer line, the operator should station his assistant at the upstream manhole. The assistant should notify the operator immediately when the water level begins to drop. Operators should reverse the direction of the nozzle to thoroughly re-clean the pipe section where the blockage was located. Operators should listen for the sound of the nozzle similar to a jet. Lack of the nozzle sound could indicate the nozzle is underwater (the pipe has a back-pitched section of pipe) or has passed through a blockage. Clean a pipeline segment in increments, allowing the high pressure jetting hose to go part of the way up the pipe, then rewind the hose to the starting position at the manhole. On the next pass, allow the high pressure hose to go further, then rewind the hose to the starting position at the manhole. Repeat the procedure until the upstream manhole is reached. This allows debris to be removed gradually from the pipe line. Always monitor water flow to judge cleaning progress. Operators should observe the bottom of the manhole for increased water level. A rise in water level could be an indication of a blockage formation downstream from the manhole where high pressure jetting is being performed. If this situation occurs, check downstream manholes to locate the blockage for immediate cleaning & blockage removal. Operators should observe the bottom of the manhole for the presence of grease and debris. Grease and soaps will appear creamy or milky white in color. Repetitive cleaning passes should be performed until this discoloration is not evident anymore.

When completing the high pressure sewer cleaning: 1. Rewind high pressure hose under pressure until a portion of the colored Safety Leader Hose is visible at the bottom of the manhole. DO NOT ALLOW THE NOZZLE TO ENTER THE MANHOLE UNDER PRESSURE ! 2. With the unit at operating pressure, use the nylon hose guide rope to pull the hose guide out of the pipe and part way up the jetting hose. 3. Allow the high pressure water to flush any debris trapped by the hose guide from the pipeline until clean. 4. Turn water control valve OFF. 5. Reset throttle cable to idle position.

6. Remove high pressure jetting hose from pipeline, remove nozzles and rewind excess hose onto hose reel. Note: Operators should always clean the manhole rim before replacing the manhole cover. Manhole covers should always fit flush inside of the manhole rim without any type of movement. Damaged manhole covers or rims should be replaced or repaired immediately. By removing the nozzle from the end of the high pressure jetting hose, water from the jetting unit can be useful in cleaning the manhole rim.

Safety Dump High Pressure Guns


A selection of high pressure jetting guns can be attached to the end of the high pressure jetting hose for various types of surface cleaning projects. The use of high pressure dumps guns requires additional safety measures be taken for the protection of operators, workers and passersby. Unlike pipe, sewer and drain cleaning where the pipe can contain water streams, the open high pressure water stream can create debris projectiles that can cause physical injury.

Always Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) When Using High Pressure Safety Dump Guns
All Safety Dump Guns have dead man release triggers. Squeezing the trigger is required to create high pressure water from the gun. Operators should never fix, prop or tie triggers in the open positions
All guns can be equipped with various size nozzles. Nozzles can have angled spray patterns that ranger from 0 to 60. Available rotating, spinning and orbital nozzles help to increase cleaning efficiency and work production.

Never use a High Pressure Shut-Off Style Gun on a US Jetting High Pressure Jetting Unit unless the unit is equipped with a Pressure Relief Valve. Contact US Jetting for more information on the use of Shut-Off.
All US Jetting High Pressure Guns are refered to as Safety Dump Guns. Dump guns (as compared to Shut-Off Guns) always allow water to pass through the gun, either at high pressure or at a low discharge pressure.. When the operator squeezes the trigger, high pressure water leaves the gun through the selected high pressure nozzle. When the operator releases the trigger, water leaves the gun or is dumped through a separate dischage barrel at a safe, low pressure. Note that the discharge pressure is reduced not the volume of water. Nozzles on high pressure guns can be fitted to maintain high pressure with various reduced water flows. US Jetting Safety Dump guns are shipped with two nozzles designed for use with specific high pressure jetting units. One nozzle produces a fine water stream or a zero degree, pencil jet of water. A second nozzle produces a fifteen degree fan jet of high pressure water.

Safety Code of Practice


Always wear protective eye protection, face protections and proper clothing. Always ensure high pressure jetting equipment, hoses & accessories are in the highest level of operating condition.

Safety Dump High Pressure Guns


Never use high pressure water to clean work boots, even steel toe boots Install or construct barricades to prevent entry of unwanted persons into the work area. Never lock gun trigger in the on position Never point the gun at anyone, even when not in use. Never work from a ladder or step ladder. Never work from scaffolding or elevated positions without proper personal fall protection safety harness. Gun & high pressure hose also should be secured from falling.

Using A US Jetting Safety Dump Gun: It is recommended that two persons always be present for operations requiring the use of safety dump guns. Safety Dumps Guns can produce high pressure at a rate of water flow. This combination can produce high work production along with gun operator fatigue. Therefore, one operator should be using the high pressure safety dump gun while the other operator maintains a safety overview of the cleaning operation and monitors the operation of the high pressure jetting unit while resting. 1. Select and attach desired nozzle to barrel of high pressure gun. Use Teflon tape and secure with a wrench to prevent leakage. 2. Connect Safety Dump Gun to end of the high pressure jetting hose. Use Teflon tape to prevent leakage. 3. Put on protective clothing and clear full face shield. See Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) section at the front of this manual. 4. Start engine on high pressure jetting unit. 5. Hold Safety Dump Gun and squeeze trigger. 6. Point gun downward and away from any potential hazard. 7. Turn High Pressure Water Selector Valve to the ON position. Note that water will be discharged from gun. If unit is equipped with a Gen II Wireless Remote Control System, turn Water Selector (Red) Switch to ON position. 8. Increase engine throttle to set desired working pressure. 9. Release Safety Dump Gun trigger. Pressure should drop as water is dumped from second gun barrel or dump port. The Safety Dump Gun is now preset for continuous operation. When the trigger is squeezed again, pre-set pressurized water will leave the gun through the nozzle. To shut down high pressure jetting unit, decrease engine throttle to idle and turn Water Selector Valve to the OFF position. If unit is equipped with a Gen II Wireless Remote Control System, turn Water Selector (Red) Switch to the OFF position.

CAUTION: Operators need to use caution at each and every surface cleaning project. High pressure water has tremendous cleaning versatility and the possibility of unintentional surface damage can occur. Operators should start the cleaning process from a distance, moving the gun nozzle closer to the surface being cleaned until the desired cleaning results are achieved. Observations to the surface should be continuously noted with adjustments to gun nozzle distance and pressure made as required.

If further technical assistance is required for special surface cleaning projects, please contact US Jetting. Additional surface cleaning nozzles and high pressure Safety Dump Guns and attachment is contained in the US Jetting Accessory And Parts Catalogue at the back of this manual.

Using Mini-Jet & Micro Mini-Jet Kits


Mini-Jet and Micro Mini-Jet Kits are popular accessories for cleaning small diameter pipes and conduits. The smaller hose diameters provide better access to smaller pipes and negotiate bends easier than larger diameter hoses. Both hose kits can operate at 4,000 PSI but at significantly lower water flow output.

Swivel Hose Reel Connection

Micro Mini-Jet Hose Kit & Carry Hose Reel

Mini-Jet Hose Kit & Carry Hose Reel

To use the Mini-Jet or Micro Mini-Jet Kit, attach the 1/2 high pressure jetting hose to the portable hose reel swivel connector. Mini Jet and Micro Mini-Jet Kits can be directly attached to the high pressure jetting hose without a carry hose reel. The Mini-Jet Hose Kit and the Micro-Mini-Jet Hose kit can be operated at 4,000 PSI, but each kit dramatically reduces the amount of water flow through the hose. Special precautions must be taken by the Operator to prevent system over-pressurization and

the possibility of rupturing a high pressure disk. When using the Mini Jet Kit (orange hose), operating the high pressure jetting unit does not change except for setting the engine speed and pressure to reflect the reduced water flow output specific to each hose kit. Use of the Water Flow By-Pass Valve will always be required when using the Micro Mini-Jet Kit to prevent overpressurization that will occur when engine is at an idle. Use of the Flow Bypass Valve may be required when using the Mini-Jet Kit depending upon the pressure required and related engine speed to prevent engine loading. Refer to the Water Flow By-Pass Valve section for more details

Mini-Jet Kits and Micro Mini-Jet Hose Kits can be attached directly to the high pressure jetting hose without the need for a Carry Hose reel.

Using The Vac Pump


The US Jetting Vac Pump is a unique designed accessory pump that operates without any internal moving parts. The Vac Pump uses high pressure water to create a powerful vacuum for pumping liquids, slurries and solids. Vac Pumps are useful for evacuating liquids and slurry from pits for pipe cleaning access. To use the Vac Pump: 1. Connect the main high pressure jetting hose to the swivel connector at the base of the pump. 2. Secure the discharge hose for safety. 3. Operate the high pressure jetting unit at 4,000 PSI to create vacuum. 4. Lower pump into liquid or slurry to be pumped.

Caution: Always shut-off high pressure jetting unit to clear blockages within the Vac Pump. DO NOT stick fingers inside of Vac Pump at anytime.

Trouble Shooting Problems


High Pressure Jetting Unit will not achieve full pressure 4,000 PSI (please allow for minor pressure deviations): 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Bleed air from pump by opening & closing bleeder valve on pump. Water Flow Bypass valve partially open, close valve. Check unit for any visible water leaks. Repair as necessary Water filter is partially clogged, not allowing adequate water flow to the pump. Remove, clean and re-install filter element. Jump Jet System is ON or partially open. Close or turn OFF Jump Jet System. Seal on water filter is allowing air into the pump. Turn unit OFF and check for water leaking from filter cup seal. Check to see if nozzle is worn. Interchange another nozzle, test unit to see if problem is corrected. With unit operating in high pressure mode, with the nozzle safely positioned inside of a pipe, then check the inside of the water storage tank for any water returning to the tank through the return lines. This could indicate a (internal leaking) failure of the high pressure water valve, water flow bypass valve or Jump Jet valve. Repair or replace as necessary.

High Pressure Jetting Unit (using 1/2 high pressure hose) achieves full pressure at less than full throttle or ruptures pressure discs. 1. Check nozzle for proper pressure and flow design. Undersized nozzles will increase restriction, thus causing increased water pressure. 2. Check nozzle for any blocked orifices. One or more clogged nozzle orifices will increase restriction, thus causing increased water pressure caused by reduced water flow. 3. Check for any hose portions that could be pinched. Note: If using any small diameter hose kits, the reduced flow dynamics will allow increase pressure at lower throttle settings. Operators will have to adjust throttle settings (lower) to compensate and prevent disc ruptures. When using micro-mini jet kit, open water flow bypass valve one quarter turn to allow excess water to return to tank. High Pressure Jetting hose pulsates, pressure fluctuates dramatically. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Check water level, indication of empty tank, turn OFF engine. Bleed air from pump. Pump bleeder valve not fully closed. Check / close Jump Jet Valve system valve. Check water filter for debris, clean filter & replace. Check for air entering the pumpvisible air bubbles inside clear water supply line, correct as necessary.
