The problem is that clearing some obstructions is harder than it should be and that can be frustrating. Your reputation deserves the best nozzles. We understand how maddening it can be when jobs don’t go as planned which is why we created Warthog sewer nozzles. Connect with a Dealer today.

“Not only are they the best, most powerful nozzles on the market and have been proven over the years but overall a great company that cares about the industry.” – Robert Broccolo, Professional Drain Services of Southern New England, LLC
I’ve purchased a Warthog, what should I do first?
Familiarize yourself with the manual. Verify that you have provided correct information on your jetters pressure, flow, and hose length and make sure we have tuned the nozzle for your situation. Then reach out to your dealer as they’ll be able to confirm everything is optimized. You can also reach out to our team directly if need be.
How do I know when I need to change/add viscous fluid to the tool?
See manual for recommendation of service time, nozzle will spin too fast or lock up, visit our resource page for your tools specific manual. Please reach out to your regional dealer or our team directly if you need more information.
How far will my tool pull up the line?
Many factors determine maximum pulling distance. Smooth newer pipes let the nozzle go much further than older rough damaged pipes. A nozzle jetted for maximum pulling force will go farther than one jetted to descale.
What does the R-value mean?
R-value is a measurement of the jet offset from center. It controls the rotation speed of the head and is determined based upon your pump size. This is done through our jetting app or consulting your regional dealer.
What PSI do I need to cut roots effectively?
Roots are cut better with higher pressure. The more pressure means faster the removal. Keeping any pressure loss to a minimum works to your benefit.
How many hours can I go before I need to do maintenance on the tool?
The Classic WV and WS should have preventative maintenance once a week, the larger classics every 50-60 hrs of run time, and the Magnum Series at 1600 hrs. Visit our Youtube channel for specific maintenance videos for your specific nozzle.
My tool stopped spinning, what do I do?
Remove the nozzle from the hose and check if you can turn it by hand. If you are not able to turn the head it has likely run out of fluid and damaged a bearing. If you can turn it, make sure you are pump is set up properly. Always reach out to us or your local dealer if you need additional assistance.
What is the warranty policy on repairs?
A fully overhauled tool is warrantied for 6 months.
Why are your tools so expensive?
Not all nozzles are created equal. For a durable and long-lasting brand like Warthog, it’s an investment. The devil is in the details and Warthog is unmatched in clearing blockages and roots. We recommend discussing options with other jetters and reading our testimonials on our homepage to understand why it’s the #1 rotational nozzle on the market.
How can I make my nozzle clean faster?
You can tune your nozzles pulling or descaling jets, change its rotation speed, and control the travel speed to optimize the cleaning for for different situations. Leverage your local dealer for first hand knowledge and application insights to get the best clean.
Why do Warthog nozzles have to be serviced and most of other brands are maintenance free?
The Warthog is like a machine. A little care will keep your tool going for a long time. With other nozzles you need to send them in for repair, usually that takes a long time and is costly. Viscous fluid is a very durable form of braking system and easy to keep up. Performing routine preventative maintenance on your Warthog makes sure it provides consistent performance every time down the pipe, and lasts as long as possible without the costly factory service of the other brands.
So with controlled speed, difference between fast/medium and slow fluid in RPM?
The difference in RPM is nozzle dependent but can be generalized using the attached chart.
May I use hot water in a WS or a WT? what is the temperature limitation?
Yes. 165 degrees.
What should be the optimized distance between the nozzle outlet and the tube wall?
It depends on the substance being removed. General flushing and cleaning can be accomplished in most pipes at the recommended diameter for the tool with the nozzle in the bottom of the pipe. Using a centralizer will greatly enhance cleaning power by keeping the jets closer to the wall.
What is the maximum distance to have an efficient impact with the front jet?
The greatest power is generated at 20 x jet diameter or 1″ for a .050 jet. Power falls off as that distance is increased.
What is the difference between Angle and Offset?
Jet angle determines whether the power of the water is used more toward thrusting or descaling. Offset is the placement of the inserts related to the center of the nozzle and affects rotation speed dependent on GPM.
Why do I need a centralizer?
A centralizer is an effective back-out preventer when working big pipes with small nozzles, It moves the jets closer to the top of the pipe and can prevent the nozzle from being damaged by abrasive materials interacting with the jets.
How do I keep my nozzle from turning around in the pipe?
A centralizer is an effective back-out preventer or a rigid stinger that is at least 1-1/2 times pipe diameter
I see a “candy-cane” spiral pattern on the pipe after cleaning, why is this?
The travel speed is too fast for the nozzle rotation speed. Using faster viscous fluid will allow the nozzle to spin faster and travel faster without striping on easy to clean materials. The pay out and pay in speeds are too fast for the nozzle to clean the even.
Do jets wear out? When do I need to replace my jets?
Jets do wear out more quickly with dirty water. Jet quality affects cleaning performance. Checking the jets with pin gages for wear, and changing them when worn or at least annually will make sure you have the highest performance.
My nozzle used to sound like a jet engine, but I got it serviced and now it does not sound the same?
The sound was created by the nozzle spinning too fast. Properly maintaining the viscous fluid will prevent the sound and damage to your nozzle.
Im just getting into jetting, which brands should I look at?
Consider the type of work you want to do. Higher pressures come at the cost of flow but allow you to clean more difficult materials. What pipe diameters do you want to clean and how much hose will you need to get the job done. How much water do you need on site? There are several quality hydro jetter manufacturers. Buy from someone you trust and that will help you find the best option for your specific needs.
What accessories should I purchase for my new nozzle?
Every tool should be purchased with a service kit that provides everything you need to perform routine maintenance.
What daily maintenance should I do to my warthog pre and post jetting the job?
Refer to our resources section to see the manual specific for your tool but WV rinse, oil bath- WT Fluid flush- WS Fluid Flush- WH/WG Fluid Flush after 50 hr WGR rebuild after 1600hr.
Do you have anything that just has a forward jet for cleaning and pushing debris down line?
All of our nozzles offer jet angles to help you get the most work done. Each nozzle has some pulling force to help get the nozzle down the line.
How do I use the jetting app to optimize my nozzle?
Based on Pump Size, System Setup (i.e. hose length & diameter, desired rotation speed (viscous fluid selection)), required pulling / cleaning distance, environmental factors, and associated elevation during cleaning operation. We also recommend reaching out to us directly or your regional dealer to optimize your nozzle.
