Can water jetting be used to clean PE pipe and are any special precautions necessary?

Quick access

Water jetting can be used for both routine cleaning of debris and also clearance of blockages. The normal practice would be to use low pressure/high volume for cleaning of debris and high pressure/low volume for clearing blockages. Operational conditions for water jetting depend largely on pipe diameter and SDR and reference should be made to national or local codes of practice.
