    Default Do you need a license to JET?

    Do you need a license to JET? (use a sewer jetter )

    Yep, that's the question,

    Do you need a license to sewer Jet?

    Like in many states you don't need a plumbing license to drain clean.....

    So if someone was to actually spend the 40K lets say on a nice Jetter and then they were taught how to use it by the rep and then they just opened shop.....could they?

    Or is there a whole slue of licensing for that kind of machinery?

    I would assume that jetting falls under drain cleaning so in the states where you don't need a license to do drain cleaning, I'm thinking you'd be o.k. In California you need a license to do any work that totals more than $500 so if you were doing larger jobs that were more than $500 you'd need a C-36 plumbing license. I couldn't imagine anyone spending the big bucks on a nice new trailer jetter and limiting themselves to jobs under $500.
