Jet Flushing & Jet Rodding

Both the Vactor Ramjet jetter and the Vactor 2100 Series combination sewer cleaner are used for jet flushing and jet rodding applications to clean sewer lines and remove built-up debris.

With jet flushing, loose debris from sanitary sewer lines is collected and flushed back to the manhole for retrieval by either vacuum loading or screening. A typical flushing operation involves jetting a nozzle the entire length of the sewer line and flushing material back to the manhole in one pass. This works for lines filled with light debris. Heavier or more substantial debris may require multiple passes or step-cleaning where the operator uses the sewer nozzle to flush the first portion of a line, then goes in further for the next portion, and repeats this step until the entire line is completely cleaned.

Similar to jet flushing, jet rodding uses a sewer nozzle to scour the walls of the sewer line to remove built-up debris or grease. Rotating heads or special spray pattern nozzles are used to ensure the entire inside surface of the line is cleaned. This operation typically takes longer than simply flushing the line. Proper nozzle selection is critical for effective jet rodding.
