Maximizing Battery Life in Your Jetter
As a plumber, you rely on your jetter to get the job done quickly and efficiently. However, one common issue that many plumbers face is a short battery life. There are several reasons why this may be the case, and in this blog post, we will explore the three main culprits and offer some tips on how to extend the life of your jetter's battery.
One common mistake that plumbers make is leaving the key in the 'run' position when they're not using their jetter. This keeps the fuel solenoid open, drawing power from the battery even when the jetter is not in use. To prevent this, make sure to turn off the key and take it out when you're not using the jetter.
Another mistake that plumbers make is starting the jetter with the valve shut. This puts extra load on the starter motor and battery, reducing the life of the battery. To prevent this, make sure to open the valve before starting the jetter.
Jetters are typically used for short periods of time, which doesn't give the battery enough time to recharge. To ensure that your battery is properly recharged, make sure to run your jetter for at least 30 minutes once a week. This will give the battery enough time to recharge, extending its life.
By following these tips, you can help extend the life of your jetter's battery and ensure that your jetter is always ready to go when you need it. Remember that running jetter for 30 minutes once a week will help to recharge the battery and keep it in good condition.
As always, it's a good idea to consult the owner's manual for specific instructions and recommendations for your jetter's battery. By following the manufacturer's recommendations and taking good care of your jetter, you can ensure that it will be a reliable tool for many years to come.
