Suction Nozzle vs. Power Jet?

Steel Pan

Recommended Posts

Jet will make more suction, and stronger lift.

Suction nozzle is best for shallow water, especially if the end comes out of the water occasionally. It is somewhat of a pain to use because you have to manage both the suction and pressure hoses.

So, it depends on how you plan to use your system........

I will be in shallow water, 8 to 12".

Why is the power jet not suggested for shallow water?

When you pull the nozzle out of the water it will send a blast of air/water through the hose and when it hits the sluice it will blow most all of the material including gold out from behind your riffles and out of the sluice :whaaaa: , don't try it you will not like the results especially if you are into good gold. :*&$*(: :*&$*(:

I like to have both a suction nozzle and a jet setup for my dredge, and use the one best for the area I'm working,

for 8" to 12" of depth I would use the suction nozzle.
