Clogged drains are a common, if not expected, part of home ownership. In the kitchen, grease, oil, and food debris can build up in the sink to cause troublesome blockages. In the bathroom, hair, toilet paper, and other products are often responsible for clogging pipes. There are many ways to alleviate the problem—but hydro jetting is by far one of the most effective.
What is Hydro Jetting?
First, the sewer line is inspected with a high-performance video camera to determine any cracks or breaks in the pipes. After the nature of the clog has been determined, a high-pressure water stream is used to dislodge blockages in drains or sewer pipes. It’s a practical and efficient alternative to snakes, and can remove a significant amount of material.
What Are the Advantage of Hydro Jetting?
Highly Effective. Unlike traditional methods, which often clear only a portion of the blockage, hydro jetting completely obliterates the obstruction, removing all traces of debris along the pipe. When residual material is left in the pipe, it builds over time and can eventually re-clog. Hydro jetting ensures the same problem won’t happen again.
Hygienic.Pipes carry many contaminants, several of which are a health hazard. Hydro jetting is such a fast and efficient process that there is little chance of any debris coming into contact with your home’s interior.
Although the initial cost of hydro jetting may be slightly higher than traditional pipe cleaning techniques, it will, in the long run, save you significant amounts of money. It cleans the entire pipe, and is extremely efficient, saving you both time and money.
Eco-Friendly.Many pipe-cleaning methods require the use of chemicals and solvents. These eventually end up in waterways, oceans, and lakes, and can have a negative impact on surrounding ecosystems. Hydro jetting uses one, natural ingredient: water. It’s a great option for homes located near water sources.
Versatile.There is no job too big or small for hydro jetting, from street-wide sewer blockages, to a simple clog in your kitchen drain.
A Preventative Measure.A hydro jetting treatment is the best way to prevent future plumbing problems. When moving into a new home or apartment, hydro jetting is a good idea to ensure all pipes are healthy and clear of debris. It’ll save you the headache of dealing with a big and expensive problem in the future.
