This X-JET M5 adjustable twist nozzle post and video is highlights the dual purpose of this unique nozzle.  You can use it when you need a straight stream but then twist to adjust it for a fan shaped spray.  This fan shape option provides the opportunity to broadcast widely over plant life to rinse and protect the property.  This X-JET M5 twist nozzle connects to our ball valve setup, which has the mosmatic hose swivel.  This set up allows us to simply hold it while spraying without having to worry with a trigger gun.


While using this X-JET M5 twist nozzle recently, the coupler did not seat properly or all the way in.  As we turned the ball valve on to release water, the nozzle shot out pretty strong, long, and hard.  With proper training, my tech knew to keep all nozzles pointed down when first beginning to release or apply high volumes of water pressure.  This resulted in the nozzle hitting the ground, rather than a door, a window, the garage door or some other place causing damage.  Even though the nozzle itself sustained small scuff marks, it sill functions at 100% capacity, so no damage to the damage at except slight visual scuff marks.  It is important to always take extra time to ensure all your connections are seat securely all the way in for adequate locking in place.  And then always point your nozzles up in the air or down into the ground when first pulling the trigger or opening the valve.  This is a great habit to get into, as you can pretty much be assured that this happened to pretty much everyone at least once in their pressure washing career.


The X-Jet M5 comes in difference sizes.  The size options are 2-3 gpm, 3-7 gpm and 7-12 gpm.  At the 5:35 time stamp of this 10 minute video, I answer answer question.  What do you do when your J-Rod nozzles are not seating properly?  So I provide a few options to improve this particular challenge.  I have more X-Jet information in another post that you might be interested in checking out!
