2 // Hydra-Flex Reaper
The Reaper rotating jetting nozzle from Hydra-Flex is engineered for waterjetting applications including pipe cleaning and sewer jetting projects for the residential, municipal, industrial or contractor markets. It cleans drains, industrial pipes, sewers and tubes by clearing blockages, grease and roots with fewer passes while creating less wear and tear on hoses and operators. Its rotating front jet is a 0-degree, straight water stream that blasts at up to 4,000 psi while rotating at an optimal speed to form a 24- or 30-degree cone of coverage. Optimized stream quality results in greater impingement, allowing the user to use one tool for various applications, including cutting blockages, cleaning grease and removing roots. Repair kits are available for extended life. 952-808-3640;

3 // SewerProShop Blue Star
SewerProShop’s Blue Star sewer cleaning nozzles are manufactured with optimized 3D hydromechanics by Intersewer, located in Germany. Water coming from the pressurized sewer hose is first divided by a conically shaped piece and turned around in the nozzle chamber, then guided directly to the stainless steel nozzle inserts via five-axis computer numerical control precision. The nozzles are made in one piece, reducing the chance of failure under pressure for greater safety and performance. Utilizing case-hardened steel, stainless steel and ceramic inserts, the nozzles can also be used with recycled water. 877-864-9394;

4 // Warthog Nozzles by StoneAge Switcher
Removing calcified grease, mineral deposits and plaster concrete deposits can be challenging, time-consuming and stressful. Having the proper tool ensures confidence for success without repeated passes or an opencut dig. With two sets of jetting angles in one tool, there’s no need to change nozzles or shut down equipment with the Switcher from Warthog Nozzles by StoneAge. One set of jet angles provides efficient pulling power and one set of jets is angled for highly effective cleaning, with the ability for the operator to switch between pulling or cleaning while still in the line. 866-795-1586;
