Why did my sewer jetter hose burst?:

  • January 31, 2024

Understanding why hoses burst on your sewer jetter and how to help prevent it.

Sewer jetter hose bursts is not an uncommon occurrence in high pressure drain cleaning machines, where two crucial hoses come into play: the main reel hose and the mini reel hose (the one descending into the drain).

Causes of Mini Reel Hose Bursts:

  1. Cuts and Abrasions:
    • Commonly caused by contact with objects in the drain.
    • Potential damage if the hose is run over by a vehicle, impacting its structural integrity.
    • Mishandling and kinking may lead to unexpected bursts.

Causes of Main Reel Hose Bursts:

  1. Kinks during Packing:
    • Hose kinks formed during packing are a primary culprit for bursting.
    • The nylon inner tube and reinforcement retain natural coils, making them susceptible to kinking during packing.

Why Avoiding Sewer Jetter Hose Burst Matters

Kinks and cuts compromises the hose's internal structure, rendering it vulnerable to bursting, particularly under high pressure (exceeding 4,000-5,000 psi). First of all, you have to make sure you are using a good quality hose. Bursting hoses present significant challenges, including downtime, potential injuries or damage to equipment, and increased maintenance costs. Understanding these root causes enables the implementation of proactive measures to prevent issues and ensure the longevity of your drain cleaning equipment.

Preventing Hose Burst Issues: Best Practices

  • Regular Inspection:
    • Inspect all hoses for cuts and abrasions, especially after each use.
    • Exercise caution during operation to prevent mishandling and kinking.
  • Proper Hose Packing:
    • Lay out the main reel hose in a straight line and undo all coils before winding it back onto the drum.
    • Avoid crossing the hose over driveways or footpaths to minimize the risk of being run over by vehicles. You can also buy heavy duty cable guards to protect them.

Implementing these preventive measures will not only minimize the risk of hose kinks and bursts but also contribute to the efficient and sustainable operation of your drain cleaning equipment. Regular inspections and proper handling are essential steps toward ensuring a reliable and trouble-free plumbing experience.
