Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer and Rooter, located in Seattle, Washington, is a locally owned and operated company specializing in residential and commercial plumbing and sewer solutions. The company began using the Brute Jetting System by Jetters Northwest in order to have a flexible, plug-and-play alternative to their current fleet of trailer jetters.

Bob Oates began looking into the Brute Jetting System for the convenience of being mounted in a truck or van, with the power (12 gpm, 3,000 psi) of a trailer jetter.

“In high-density populated areas, most customers have two or three cars, so in the front of customers’ homes there is limited street parking. The Brute Jetting System allows me to pull up with one vehicle and eliminates the need to disconnect a trailer and park the service van elsewhere,” says Bob Oates, owner.

Bob Oates also likes the fact that “the Brute Jetting System is always onboard whether I need it or not … no more running back to the shop to grab the trailer jetter when the need arises.”

Through the use of the Brute Jetting System, Oates is now able to save on the initial costs of the building of a custom skid-mounted jetter and valuable time on the job site. “My employees argue over who gets the van with the jetter in it. It’s just plain easier.”
