Jetting tools

Jetting tools

Hi Guys,
I am new to this forum and am not an engineer.
I am an Australia living for the past 40 years in Kenya.
I have just bought a 100 acre plot on the beach in Tanzania right next to a game park and have an erosion problem, but that's another matter.
I am here to find a diagram of a jetting tool.
I found this forum whilst trying to find out how to jet pilings and came upon a thread (below) that was a great help.

Sorry 'bout the link. The USACE must have changed it, 'cuz it doesn't work for me now either. Take a look at http://www.army.mil/usapa/doctrine/5_Series_Collec... and search for "5-134", which is Field Manual 5-134. The site has all of the FM series manuals in pdf. The manual will tell you a lot about installing pilings and was very helpful to me.

We used a 3" pump several times for several different piling in..............................................

Over the course of the thread JB69 talks of having drawings of a method he used for jetting pilings in seawater.
He posted the drawings but I can not get links to them.
Anyone that old that might know where I could look?

P.S. I have attached a photo of the area I wish to place pilings.
