Webinar Highlights Jetter Selection

US Jetting will sponsor a webinar on “Selecting a High-Pressure Jetting Unit for Maximum Use Applications and Profits” on Thursday, Feb. 3, from 4 to 5 p.m. Eastern time. Cleaner magazine will host the session.

Presenters from US Jetting are Ryan Peake, southeast regional sales manager, and Danielle Young, new unit and international sales coordinator. They will explain why purchasing a high-pressure jetting unit is a capital investment that must be researched thoroughly.

A profitable jetting unit needs to cover a wide range of pipe cleaning applications, and the wider the range, the greater the potential profits. The webinar will focus on selecting a unit with the pressure, water flow, water storage capacities and engine horsepower to fill the needs of any sewer cleaning operation. The seminar will last 45 to 50 minutes and will allow 10 minutes for the presenters to answer submitted written questions.
