How to Take Care of Your Water Jetter

  1. 1. How to Take Care of Your Water Jetter Owning a water jetter may be convenient, but it does require a lot of investment if you want it to last for a very long time. Using a water jetter has a lot of advantages, but it can bring more benefits if you know how to properly take care of it. More than regular checking and cleaning, there are other ways to ensure that your water jetter will last for a long time. Here are some simple but effective ways in taking care of your water jetter. Know the Capacity of Your Water Jetter Water jetters have different capacities depending on how they are used. They range from 1500 psi up to 3500 psi. The varying capacities will determine how much your water jetter can accommodate needs in terms of cutting through materials and cleaning hard materials from different surfaces. The energy requirement also differs from one water jetter to another. The 50-HP types can cut through 0.1 inch of material. For thicker surfaces, the necessary horsepower is 60 to 80. Less thickness means less energy requirement, so 25-HP types are better. Know the capacity of your water jetter by testing it in different materials. You can also ask your manufacturer about it. Determine the Productivity Cost Per Inch Most people do the mistake of calculating the productivity cost per hour, instead of calculating it per inch. Water jetters make use of a huge amount of electricity, so they have to coincide with the productivity cost. Consider the capacity of your water jetter in terms of how abrasive it is to cut or clean the materials. It has to coincide with the labor, facility, and other expenses it will incur. Review this thoroughly and cut anything that is costly by using the peak abrasive flow rate and the available horsepower. The Use of Water Basically, tap water is used in water jetters, but some do need water softening prior to use. More often than not, the water will still absorb the ions present in the pipes and in the surrounding materials. It is good to ‘ion starve’ the water, so that it will remain efficient for a long time. These are just some of the ways to maintain a water jetter.
