Fred a long time ago we discussed how Vee and Tee jets are "flow rated"..
You would think a 6 flow jet or combination of jets would produce 6 gallons per minute at a set/base PSI...

but no.

Most wands create about a gallon and a half at 6/500

The nozzles are rated for from at 40 psi. An 02 nozzle will give you .2 gpm. An 06 will give you .6 gpm. Pumptec has a nozzle chart that shows what nozzles will do at various gpm. I believe an 04 will give you 1.5 gpm at 500 psi.

can't remember where this came from, or why I screenshot it?

don't know if it's accurate, but It's truly fascinating

3rd post in that thread has some cool observations of the graph

speaking of Dan
anyone know how he's doing?

good dude with solid info, insight and posts

..L.T.A.

no idea

I assume he just finally gave up on the carpet cleaning side job which he got into as a fallback plan in 08. He has a good job as an industrial electrician/engineer (I think) of some sort if he hasn't retired.


Maybe we'll see him again the way things are going :eekk:
