Hydro jetting is an effective technique, which clears slow or clogged sewage lines. It uses high pressure of water blasts to remove build ups and blockages in the lines. Normally, it uses a pressure that ranges from 1,500 to 4,000 psi, which effectively clears out any kind of build ups in your drains. This method is typically used in commercial properties such as hospitals and restaurants. However, today, its demand has grown rapidly in many residences.
To identify the location and the main cause of the problem, a video inspection needs to be done. If the cause of the problem is the tree roots, then it is important to make sure that the water pressure that will be used should be able to cut through them. Otherwise, snaking needs to be performed first to tear up any heavy root that is blocking the line. Also, the video inspection will determine any broken pipes, which are not advisable for hydro jetting as this will only break the weakened areas. Moreover, a video inspection reduces the possibility of the sewage to back flush into other areas.
Homeowners seek hydro jetting services> to remove hair clogs, scale, silt, sand, grease, and food build up on their pipes. Unlike snaking, which only breaks down the clogs and leaves the build up on the pipes, this type of service cleans the pipes completely from residual build up. Moreover, hydro jetting is a cleaning method that is environmentally friendly as it uses no harsh chemicals throughout the cleaning process.
Hydro jetting is a method that should only be done by professional plumbers. They are well-trained and have the experience on how to use the system, from checking and identifying where the problem is to completely and properly cleaning the entire system. Improper use of the high water pressure can only damage your pipe lines. Hence, it is only wise to leave this work in the hands of the experts.
Overall, hydro jetting is particularly useful for homeowners who having problems with sand and silt build ups, which are not cleared or flushed out completely with chemical cleaners and augers. This solution can also help improve old plumbing lines, which have years of accumulated build up.
