Sewer/Drain Cleaning + Get Alerts

With winter on its way, it’s that time of year for plumbers and drain cleaners in cold-weather climates to ensure that their jetting equipment is being properly prepared for winter. 

This is a great time of the year to not only winterize your jetting equipment, but also to perform essential services on your machine to ensure optimal performance. 

1. Change the oil - In cold climates HotJet USA only recommends Mobile 1 (Pure Synthetic) 5w30 oil.

2. Change the air filter – At least two times per year.

3. Do a general tune up. ­– Don’t forget to: Take a look at the tires and belts, check for weather cracking and unusual wear. Check fasteners, and take a look under the unit for any loose or lost nuts or bolts.

Keeping your jetting equipment in great condition will pay dividends to ensure ultimate performance and dependability.
