hydro jetting is a unique and highly specialized process that uses water hoses to shoot highly pressurized water at 360-degree angles to remove blockages. This method removes build up, hair, household grease, paper products, sand, silt, soil, foreign objects, and anything else you can think of that backs up pipes. High powered streams of water can dislodge any blockage. It can also clean the sides of pipe when build up has caused the interior diameter to narrow and restrict flow. Hydro jetters utilize pressures of about 4,000 pounds per square inch. These machines are so powerful that they can even clear tree roots from sewer lines. Proper diagnosis of blockages is usually done with cameras inserted into the system’s pipes. Once our technicians see what is blocking your pipe, they will bring in the hydro jet equipment and get to work. A hydro jetting can be even more effective than pipe snaking because of the radius that it cleans. Snaking is typically limited to clearing pipes in a narrow and straight line. With hydro jetting, the high-pressure stream can be directed anywhere our plumbing technician thinks is necessary. As debris accumulates inside pipe, you might experience slow drainage or even backups. Homeowners often use plungers and augers to fix the problem. These can be effective for a blockage that’s close to the drain, but items can get stuck anywhere in your pipes. No matter where the problem is, a hydro jetting machine can clear it. For routine maintenance, hydro jetting can prevent debris and gunk from accumulating. For example, a restaurant that must clean grease traps every three months, or that does so monthly or every six months, can rely on us to use pressurized water to get the job done.
