Things to know about Hydro Jetting
Hydro Jetting, used by professional plumbing contractors, is a method of cleaning with high pressure streams of water up to 4,000 PSI. These high pressure streams are able to remove build up and debris in tanks and lines. Hydro Jetting is used when traditional snaking is unable to remove clogs.
A Hydro Jetter is made up of a large water tank, a high-pressure hose, a sturdy nozzle, and a machine which pressurizes the water in the hose. The nozzle of the Hydro Jetter is placed at the clean out. A clean out is an opening in the plumbing system that gives plumbers access to the sewer pipes for cleaning and repairs. The nozzle is then activated, and the pressurized water works its way “upstream.” Water is pressurized upstream, so that any debris that are cleared out by the Hydro Jetter will flow downstream where the drainage path has already been cleared.
Hydro jetting is usually needed for commercial properties like restaurants, schools, hotels or hospitals, but it can be extremely beneficial for homeowners as well. Hydro Jetting is extremely important and must be done routinely for most commercial businesses. In restaurants, Hydro Jetting removes clogged grease and food particles. For residential work, it can remove sand, silt and scale build up, hair clogs and other residues that build up. Hydro Jetting can also remove stubborn roots that have found their way into your sewer line.
There are many benefits to Hydro Jetting. Hydro jetting is environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals are needed. You can remove debris without tearing up your yard. Hydro-jetting is the only proven way to return the inner pipe to as close to its original condition as possible. It is the most cost effective way of cleaning the drainage piping without going to the expense of demolition or replacement.
