Default Sewer jetters

Looking for advice on machines for jetting mainlines. What would be the most cost effective purchase on jetters for heavy root removal. Is a 4000 psi machine going to cut it for stuff like that at 5.5 gpm?

I dont trust the cheap jetters. Theres too many moving parts that need to be built properly.

Buy a quality one from a reputable company

not nearly enough better get the 10,000psi super jetta with swirling saw blade and at least 20gpm to flush all the junk down drain from you...

An intro is requested from all new members. In case you missed it, here is the link. https://www.plumbingzone.com/f3/.

The PZ is for Plumbing Professionals (those engaged in the plumbing profession)

Post an intro and tell our members where you are from, yrs in the trade, and your area(s) of expertise in the plumbing field.

This info helps members who are waiting to welcome you to the best plumbing site there is.

We look forward to your valuable input.

This one is from me : Write more than one or two lines, elaborate. Are you proud of your trade? Show it! Talk about the jobs you've done, the path you took to get where you're at as a trades person, the amount of time spent in plumbing school(s) or years before you were eligible to take the journeyman exam etc.
