The sewage system is one of the most important parts of any home or commercial property. A fully functioning sewage system ensures that you don’t have to face any embarrassing situations, or worse, wake up in the middle of the night to find your toilet overflowing. Even in the most state-of-the-art drainpipes, debris eventually builds up, and cause your sinks drains, bathtubs, or the main sewer line to clog up and result in slow drainage, or overflows.
The first instinct you might get in times like these is to grab your plunger and try to unclog the drain, however, this doesn’t always work. For stubborn buildups, you need a more powerful procedure – hydro jetting.
Hydrojet plumbing is a method used by professional plumbing contractors like *company name* to get the job done quickly and efficiently, where regular plungers or snakes would take a long time or would be ineffective altogether!
What Is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is a process in which plumbers clean sewage lines with the help of a specialized nozzle at the end of a hose that sprays a powerful stream to wash away the stuck debris. The stream is usually sprayed at 7,000 to 60,000 PSI depending on the pipes and severity of the clog.
*company name*’s professional plumbers feed a video-cable along the drainpipe before initiating the line jetting procedure to see the extent and type of clog and determine how much pressure to use. This practice saves the plumbers from having to try to remove the clog on a trial-and-error basis.
How High Pressure Drain Jetting Works?
After having a look inside the pipes, the hydro jetting nozzle is fed into the clogged pipe. Other than spraying forward, the specialized nozzle sprays several streams backwards as well to propel itself through the drain pipe. When the pipe encounters a clog, it tears through it with the help of its high-pressured stream.
If the clog is due to food, grease, dirt, salt, or other soft buildup, the high-pressure stream cuts through, dispersing the buildup, which then either flows along the pipe or back up. The backwards nozzles can help the gunk flow back up.
If the blockage is due to a hard object like tree branches, roots, or rocks, the plumber sees which is more beneficial; pushing it further in or pulling it out. To pull it out, the front stream makes a path through which the nozzle can get past the debris. Then the “propelling” nozzles push the object back up. Plumbers control how far the nozzle propels itself by holding down the pipe, to reinforce its push backwards.
Benefits of Hydro Jetting
The fact that hydro jetting services are in such high demand for residential and commercial plumbing problems is a clear indication of how effective it has proved to be. Some benefits of hydro jetting are:
Cleaning, Not Unclogging Of Pipes
While traditional unclogging methods only clear up clogs, hydro jetting thoroughly cleans the clogs and the pipes, dispersing all minerals and grease stuck on it.
Removal Of Bigger Debris
Hydro jetting easily removes bigger and more stubborn clogs such as rocks and roots.
Accurate & Consistent
As the nozzle navigates through the pipe, it spins because of the propelling streams. This spin allows hydro jets to scrape off debris all around the pipes, accurately and consistently.
While conventional drain cleaning methods need to be done at least twice a year, hydro jetting cleans the pipes enough for you to get it done only once in a few years. This can save you a lot of money!
When Is Hydro Jetting Necessary?
Call *company name*’s expert plumbers for hydro jetting services when:
● You find that traditional methods of plumbing aren’t working
● Along with clogs, there are weak or cracked pipes and you need to get your lines assessed
● You haven’t had your lines cleaned for years
● You suspect that the clog is due to something hard like hardened cement, rocks, or roots
● You don’t want to go through with the regular cleaning hassle and want a long term solution
Plumbing Snaking vs. Hydro Jetting
Plumbing snaking is a process in which a long metal tube, with a cable inside that has blades attached one side and a hand crank at the other, is placed in the drain to clean out clogs. The crank end is turned to extend the cable down the drain and when it reaches the clog, the blades make holes in the clog. This allows water to flow through those holes.
The difference between plumbing snaking and hydro jetting is that the former is usually only effective for minor clogs as it doesn’t ‘break through’ materials, but only makes space for water to flow. However, a hydro jet doesn’t only break up clogs, it also clears the plumbing lines of any debris.
There are certain limits to plumbing snaking but hydro jetting can solve all your plumbing problems, be it too much toilet paper or heavy rocks in the drain.
