Choosing the Right Nozzle

The relationship between pressure drop (PSI) through a sewer jetter nozzle, flow (GPM) and orifice size (Nozzle #) can be expressed as: However, if you rely on this formula alone when designing a sewer jetter you can overload your pressure washer or pump. That’s because the formula doesn’t account for pressure buildup in the jetting […]
