We are happy to tell you more about us and how our sewer and maintenance repair company got started. At a young age our founder Kyle Baxter started working with his grandfather cleaning sewer pipes and a host of other municipal activities. His grandfather had retro-fitted and old pumper fire truck to use as a water-jetter truck. At the time, nobody else in the area had a jetter truck, so they cleaned sewer lines in and around Perry, Iowa. As a young boy, Kyle was all too happy to be working side-by-side with his grandfather who never paid him for his time. Kyle explains that he would always tell him “This is an education, and you’ll get paid for it later.” And he was right, that has surely turned out to be true as our company Accujet has now been serving customers in Iowa for more than 15 years.
No Time to Waste
our owner Kyle is proud to say he has never drawn a paycheck from and employer. While still in high school, Kyle did contract work for the City of Perry repairing sewer lines, water mains, and handling assorted other tasks. After high school and looking for a change, he started cleaning hoods and ducts for restaurants as a self-employed contractor. But the company never took off and he missed the sewer maintenance business. So in April 2006 at the age 22, he formed his own company and bought a trailer mounted water jetter. Kyle started doing a few jobs here and there and felt if he could get 4 jobs a month, the jetter would pay for itself. And it wasn't long until he was doing 4 a day, and soon bought a push camera to increase his capabilities.
Customers began calling with bigger sewer jobs which he initially referred to other contractors. And as the calls kept coming, and the jobs got bigger, so he invested in a used Vac-Con V311 unit to service more customers.
Hustle & Endurance
From the start, word-of-mouth treated Kyle well. He had built connections with the City of Perry, Iowa and once he performed well there his reputation grew. Kyle said that “In an area like this, all the city guys from different towns talk to each other at meetings and events and my name grew that way”. To grow the business, he would spend a couple days a week meeting people. Kyle would stop at every city shed, talk with people about their sewer maintenance needs, and drop off business cards and other information. The company now serves communities as small as a few hundred, and as large as 100,000.
Today we advertise everywhere, and still utilize the personal approach of in-person visits. Presently we service all of central & western Iowa. Accujet understands that people need to know who we are to contact us. And we brand ourselves in every way possible. Our logo, (which Kyle designed himself and is extremely proud of) is on everything. We are proud of our service, and want the whole world to know us.

Trust & Value
Through lessons handed down by his grandfather, Kyle has always understood that your identity must be backed by quality work. We believe that customer satisfaction starts with a high-quality job at fair price. We also know that customers demand responsive service. Being there when they call and working according to their schedule are particularly important. We feel that if we ask our customers to trust us, they can expect thorough, complete, and professional performance in an efficient manner.
