    Can't help you with budget jetters but dad does land drainage and does a lot round Cheshire, I'm sure he'd look after you if you decided to go down the contractor route

    Drain Jetter

    Built a jetter years ago, still a great tool. You don't need an unloader valve, we have a simple ball valve mounted next to the reel which either sends water back to tank or down the hose.

    Drainage contractors in your area

In my area the average drain...
