Great To Get Rid Of Calcium On Pool Tiles
Bought the wet sandblasting kit and used some medium fine glass beads to get rid of the calcium deposits on my pool tiles. Worked great with no problems.

Highly recommend.

Worked As Described!
Glad I have this attachment...used it this time to wet-blast fading paint and heavy surface rust off an old '80's Ford Ranger.

MAACO slapped some paint on it and it looks great...just be prepared to have sand everywhere.

"The only reason I'm giving you a 5 is because I had a problem with another product that was broken and you wanted to charge me a restocking fee. I wanted the product it was broken how should I be charged a restocking fee."

Ken,
I looked at the notes on your file; it sounds like we thought you ordered the wrong unit & wanted to return it, not that the turbo nozzle was broken and needed a warranty replacement. We will contact you directly and help you with the MTM Hydro warranty replacement. A quick word about turbo nozzles- you should have them pointed downwards when you pull the trigger, then move the gun where you want to spray. If you have the nozzle pointed up the sudden pressure from the water has been known to jam the spinning disc inside the nozzle.

Wet Blasted My Old Ranger
This wet blaster worked nicely as it sanded the paint and surface rust off my 1983 Ranger...

It did a good job...used a little naval jelly and wiped off the flash rust with two applications then the truck went off to get some paint.

Works Amazingly Well
I spent a lot of time looking into this method and found the General Pump kit to be the best overall deal out there. It works amazingly well with both specialized blasting materials and regular screened sand. It will do just as good as a job as any heavy duty sand blasting kit and you don't have to have a huge compressor to operate it.

I made sure to size the correct tip size for my machine; it's a 3000 PSI, 4gpm and a little tired- but it worked great with the blaster.

Works Great When It Does
When the sand hose is dry the unit works great and does exactly what it's supposed to. But it's very difficult to keep water out of the hose and it clogs frequently. Makes for a very frustrating and sometimes slow experience.

I found that substituting a much shorter sand hose works much better at the cost of more limited mobility.
Pros: Durable
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable

Very Pleased!
Fantastic product. Works better than I ever expected for stripping paint and rust. I restore old cars as a hobby and wish I would have bought this years ago. Saves so much time and effort. Great job!

This Really Works!
This is a quality product. I was able to hydro-sand blast the bottom paint and keel of my 22 ft sailboat in 4 hours. I used a 4 gpm 3700psi pressure washer and "medium" grade sandblasting sand from "sterling sand". The only issue I had was keeping the sand flowing - it is important to keep sand very dry. The job used about 700 lbs of sand.

Excellent!
Works very well with all types of media. I will and do encourage people to purchase and have no apprehension at all.

I will purchase another in the very near future.

Careful- This Has A Kick
Professional use only. Many dangers using this equipment. Hard to hold, no good place to put your hand. Unit tends to twist in your hand while in use since there is no dedicated hand hold. Wear full face protector and heavy gloves and jacket with long sleeves that covers your neck. Long pants and heavy shoes are a must not an option.

Use caution around other people and most important install a 1/4 inch ball valve right at the connection. Valve is a must, not an option for safety in... more
Pros: Engineered Well
Cons: Professional Use Only
