Hydro-jet cleaning is a method of cleaning with high pressure streams of water to remove build up and debris in tanks and lines.[1]

This process may best be compared to power washing which has also gained popularity as a means to clean driveways, homes, streets, commercial vehicles and more.

Water blasters are essentially pressure washers with extreme pressure from 7,000 PSI to 60,000 PSI. These units are classified generally as delivering ultra-high pressure. This range of pressures are designed for unique applications like pipe cleaning, water jetting, precision cutting, and surface preparation. Common uses are found in industries like construction, marine, aviation, and manufacturing. They can be built with electric, gas, or diesel engines with cold or hot water options depending on the application requirements.
