What kind of water quality can be used in the UHP waterjetting system? what's the impact?
- The quality of water that is recommended for using the Waterjetting process is water that does not contain salt levels, has low mineral levels and standard pH. The result of using water that is not suitable will cause problems both for the pump itself and the work accessories used.
- Use clean water with good filtering results, if using water from WWTP filtering, it must go through the filtration process again before it is put into the water tank on the machine,
- Avoid using water that still looks dirty (cloudy, contains foam, rainwater, rusty water).

How much effect does water quality have on pump performance?
Water for the pump must be filtered using a water filter with a minimum size of 10 microns (std) so that the water that enters the engine tank is clean from dirt. After that the water tank will still be filtered with a strainer before being sucked by the booster pump, after being sucked by the booster pump the water will still be filtered before processing the pump components.
Good water quality has a big impact on the components contained in the pump, so using dirty or bad water will make the life of the components in the pump breaks down faster.
Dirty water will cause cracks or fine scratches which result in defective components in the pump, which will be functionally less than optimal. It causes the accessories on the pump to wear out quickly, the build-up of minerals and dirt that is carried away during the pumping process will clog the work accessories, as a result the pressure generated will not be maximal.
