High Pressure Jetting
Water Jetting at High pressures is an effective cleaning technique in pipes from 3/4” (19mm) to 48” (1200mm) and for the following applications:
1. Removal of compacted or loose debris from culverts or down any drain or sewer.

How it works
Water goes through an industrial hose and is converted into high pressure fine jets by a nozzle. The nozzles vary in design and application. They can propel the hose more than 300ft along a drain run and, at the same time provide a scouring action which de-scales and cleans the pipe wall. Other nozzles incorporate a powerful forward facing jet to clear obstructions.
Using Southern Drain’s expertise plus a range of adjustable flow-rates and pressures, deposits are efficiently taken apart and then pushed down the drains. Our jet power pump units vary from trailer mounted to lorry mounted producing a water flow rate range from 9 gallons per minute to 70 gallons per minute.
This combines with a pressure range from 1000 to 12000 PSI. These combinations will effectively clear blockages from soft silt to concrete. Gratings and Safticurb gullies are cleaned by attaching a lance gun to the jetting hose.
A specially designed pump can be attached to the jetting unit to remove water or small debris from manholes to surface level. Our high pressure water jetting works without harsh chemicals, leaving your space ready for use once it is dry – without the need for treatment beforehand.
