The small elec jetters by General wire (not the one in the box) Are 1500 PSI and 1700 PSI you can use either 1/8 or 1/4 hose... I would recommend buying the heads and not trying to drill your own, kits of 4 or 5 heads are cheap... In addition you can get some lead hose that is a little stiffer (wire braid in the sheathing) in both sizes and drop head nozzles (the ones that have balls in front) from jetters north west and other places that make going though traps and 90's better...

On a side note Im personally not a huge fan of using those mini jetters (plug in) Like im sure they work but for the price tag you could get yourself a chunk of hose and a small gas pressure washer and do the same thing..

Tango you mentioned about shortest way to go from 1/8x 1/4 best way is use stainless bushing they last longer if price is a big deal then use galv.. we dont use quick connects just don't trust them threads are stronger of course everything wears eventually.. if you want a premium nozzle then i recommend a company called shamrock nozzles they make quality stuff.. as you know you gotta pay for it though... They custom drill nozzles specific to you machines specs.. they have potential to last hundreds of cleanings

I will not use any tool that comes with ascociated risks that isn't CSA/ULC or other approved stamps for the job because insurance will not cover me. Also the jetter has a pulse to help prevent the hose from getting stuck. Gas jetter and 300 feet of hose in the snow bank and into a kitchen with the door ajar, the cat escapes, Good luck to grab the cat again, haha nope!

I own a K-3800 and K-45AF and other stuff. Yes I do some 4" pipes with success but I really choose in which house I will try it.

I bought some nozzles and with all fees on top of that it ended up costing half the price of the machine.

Check out Aqua Mole jetter nozzles. They are the best custom drilled nozzles I have ever used. They have sets with unique patterns that really help out on those tough lines.

I ordered a set from Mytana and must of gotten a nozzle that's defective it turned color and rust spots started to pop up. I'm waiting for a tech at Mytana to call me back. They'll have to send another one and it they better pay all the fees to have it shipped here!

Only used 3 times for customers. The last use of it was a freaking joke, I had to get the 3800. So I only got paid to use it 1.5 times. A long ways to recoup the investment. I probably spent just as much as the jetter itself in accessories for it to be used according to the situation at hand.

It did serve as a secret weapon though which was the reason I bought it.

What was the situation it couldn't get? I use mine for 1-1/2" lines that are filled with grease or rust. I get a lot of drain snaking calls so mine got paid off prety quickly even though I use it on only a small percentage of my calls.
