Hydro Jetting Hose Repair

Hydro hose repair is an essential part of increasing the longevity of your high-pressure jetting hose. All jetting hoses are susceptible to wear and tear during the jetting process. This can be significantly reduced by using crucial safety gear such as tiger tails, manhole rollers, and manhole protectors. However, if you do find that your hose has a burst and needs to either be mended or have new ends put on, many hydraulic hose shops can help with this problem.

Can a High-Pressure Hose Be Repaired?

Yes, but you must specify your brand of hose when you take it to a hydraulic hose repair shop. US Jetting brand and Parker hoses are comparable enough that their ends and menders are compatible. However, Piranha hoses require a specific crimping spec so the hydraulic hose shop must be made aware that the hose is a Piranha brand.

Regardless of the type of hydro hose, the repair process is usually the same. If mending, you need to identify the section of the hose which has been damaged and cut out the damaged section. Then you’ll have a gap in the hose. A mender will cover both ends of the hose connecting the two. That mender will be swaged to secure it on the hose. If you’re replacing a hose end, then they will cut off the end and swage either a female or male fitting to the end of the hose. Whether it’s a mender or a hose end, they must be able to withstand the same GPM or PSI that the original hose can withstand.

Keep in mind that if you are mending a hose, it may impact its ability to go around tight bends since there will be a short section of the metal mender that needs to make it around corners.

Hose Repair Tools

You can buy hose mending tools to mend or repair your hose, but for most people, it’s easier to take your hose to a hydraulic hose repair shop. This is a relatively cheap option as most fittings and menders cost around $30 and the crimping costs around $60. If you do decide to purchase a hose swaging tool and crimping machine for yourself, then keep in mind that special dies and pushers are required for mending.

Due to the nature of sewer jetting, hoses are considered wear items and have a limited lifespan. High-pressure hose repair is necessary when a hose has suffered damage that can become dangerous to the operator if not removed. Hoses with noticeable worn areas, nicks, tears, or other issues must be repaired or replaced because it is unsafe to operate a hydro jetter with a damaged hose.
Contractors can perform their own hose repairs with the right equipment, which includes a swaging tool, appropriate dies, and hose ends. They should also obtain the appropriate training to use this equipment safely. If purchasing a hose swaging tool and dies doesn’t make sense, then taking it to a hose professional is best.
There are no jetter hose repair kits. Contractors looking to repair their own hoses must purchase the appropriate hose ends and menders that match the same manufacturer as the hose. US Jetting and Parker hose ends are compatible, but Piranha hose ends require a different tooling. A hose mending tool is also needed to swage the new sections together or to add a new hose end.
Sewer jetter hoses should be inspected before and after every job to identify any damage right away. The key to maintaining hoses is to invest in preventative safety equipment, such as manhole protector rings, tiger tails, safety leader hoses, and manhole rollers. These tools minimize the risk of damage to hoses.
Hydraulic hose repair kits are not suitable for sewer jetter hoses. Sewer jetter hoses must be repaired with parts made by the same manufacturer as the original hose. The components of Parker and US Jetting brand hoses are compatible. However, Piranha brand hoses must use their manufacturer’s ends and menders.
Abrasion, caused by pipes’ sharp edges, is the most common cause of damage. As the hose is lowered into a pipe, these edges can cause nicks. Using tools like tiger tails, manhole protector rings, and manhole rollers creates a barrier between hoses and these rough surfaces to extend their lifespan.
Specialized equipment is needed for sewer jetter hose repair, including the correct ends, menders, and a hose mending tool. This equipment can be costly, so if hose repair is only needed occasionally, seeking a hose repair service could be a better option. Investing in the proper safety equipment will also reduce the risk of needing repair equipment.
