High Pressure Pipe Cleaning: Water Jetting Services
March 15, 2017
Over time, your home’s plumbing system will slowly gather debris, coating the walls of pipes and, if left unchecked, eventually restricting the flow of water, which could lead to even bigger plumbing concerns down the road.
What Is Water Jetting?
High-pressure water jetting (also known as hydro jetting, or high-pressure pipe cleaning) is an efficient way to high-pressure clean your pipes, washing your plumbing and drainage system from the inside out. Using state-of-the-art pumps and flexible hoses, high-pressure water is propelled into the sewer lines. A water jetter is a slim, heavy-duty hose with a special jet nozzle on the end. The nozzle has a variety of forward and reverse water jets that pull the jetter deep into drains, as it blasts pressurized water towards the pipe walls. Even the toughest blockages and buildup can’t stand up to water jetting, which clears out grease, breaks apart clogs, scrubs sludge and sediment off the sides of pipes, and flushes out dirty residue, thoroughly cleaning drain and sewer pipes.
How To Know If Your Home Needs High-Pressure Pipe Cleaning Services
Water jetting is an effective solution to stubborn clogs. Slow drains are common first signs that your pipes have accumulated buildup. If the water in your bathtub or shower takes more than a few minutes to completely drain, your pipes are likely clogged. While many homeowners turn to do-it-yourself products to unclog drains, it’s important to understand that sometimes these chemicals can cause more harm than good and can also damage your septic tank system. Hydro jetting is an environmentally preferred way to clear your lines without the use of harsh chemicals. Before resorting to a major plumbing procedure like pipe replacement, having a hydro jet clean problem pipes can save you a lot of time and money.
Regularly scheduled high-pressure water jetting service is particularly important for commercial customers, who deal with fats, oils, and grease (FOG) on a regular basis, to keep their drains flowing freely. By removing mineral deposits, sludge buildup, and debris that accumulate in the lines, restaurants and other businesses can avoid clogs that can cause costly downtime.
