jetter nozzle for garden hose??

Professional plumbers clean sewer pipes with a jetter -- special pressure washer with a nozzle that spray the water backwards (to propel the hose forward) and forward (to puncture the dirt in front).
For home owners, is there a similar nozzle for a garden hose that would allow me to clean storm drains? If not, is there something like a metallic dome cover for hose end that I can drill holes in to make one myself?

Why don't you just buy one made for a pressure washer http://www.ultimatewasher.com/power-washer-spray-nozzles.htm#jetter-nozzle Then buy a 1/4" NPT to garden hose adapter, but I think you'll find that a garden hose doesn't have enough pressure. In which case, you can buy a 1/4" NPT to quick connect adapter and put it on a pressure washer. If you don't have access to a pressure washer, then just buy a Drain King.

In your first paragraph you mentioned the pressure washer, but here you just want the nozzle.
They had to clean our sewer once, when the drains were not working, and indeed it was a pressure washer and the pump was almost as big as a refrigerator. and mounted on the bed of a truck.
Of course it had to powerful because the stoppage was, it seems, caused by a "fat log" which was about the size of a big log for a fireplace.

There are but they do not work the same way. Garden hose adaptors work by ballooning up in a vent and using weight and volume to move solids. They do nothing for roots.

I have used one of these several times. I use HOT water and a quart of Ammonia first. After 30 minutes I stick this down the vent to the area of the drain I am working on. You can not push a garden hose much past the first 90. This is not for working on main drains. Augers and pro tools work there. This might help, for a while.
A friends kitchen sink was hideously slow. We replaced the arm to the sink, half plugged up. Then I went to work on the stack. A year later and they still do not have any problems. Every 30 days half a quart of ammonia and hot water down the drain. Then a bowl, tub, or sink full of hot water after it. Ammonia will help cut the grease and the volume and weight of the bowl, tub or sink full of water pushes the problem to a larger pipe. Hopefully then it is not a problem.

The Drain King that your link goes to is for a model 750, which is for 3" to 6" drains. I've used that model on main drains. The success depends on the blockage.
