Water jetting is a recent innovation in cleaning concrete
floors. Water jetting units generally use an engine-driven, piston pump to
develop pressures of 15,000 to 25,000 psi. The blasting is accomplished by
hand-held wands or lances, and by units that have 2 nozzles attached to a
rotating bar. The rotary unit, which looks something like a lawn mower, is
used to create a more uniform surface finish.
Water Jetting Pros
Water Jetting Cons
While waterjetting can create an
effective profile and remove coatings, it is difficult to control the
profile because the high pressure water can be very aggressive.
There is also the issue of water exposure
and standing water cleanup as well as the need for dry time of the concrete
surface and or the use of moisture tolerant primers.
