Why Is Hydro-Jetting So Effective?
Hydro-jetting is effective because it uses water at great pressure to blast any debris out of a sewer line.
This includes getting rid of:
- Stubborn tangles of tree roots that have managed to infiltrate our customer’s pipes
- Fats, greases, and oils that have congealed and stuck to the walls of the pipes
- Paper product buildup, especially those with thick materials
The pressure is usually around 3,500 pounds per square inch at about 18 gallons per minute. Additionally, some hydro-jet mechanisms are equipped with a scouring head. This is a revolving head with teeth that scrape debris from the sides of the pipe as the water blasts away the clogs. All of the residues are then swept down to the municipal sewer or into the home’s septic system.
To perform hydro-jetting, one of our Nampa plumbers will open the cleanout plug to the sewer line and insert the hydro-jet. Because the water is inserted under such high pressure, hydro-jetting is definitely a job left to one of our professional technicians.
When to Request Hydro-Jetting Services
Our clients need hydro-jetting services when nothing else will stop their drains from either backing up or being slow to empty. Even if other techniques ease the problems of slow or stopped drains, they won’t clear the pipes out as thoroughly as hydro-jetting. After the service, a video camera that’s inserted in the drain will show a pipe that is absolutely clean.
Also, homeowners who have private septic systems might want to be wary of using harsh chemicals to clear out a clog. These chemicals might work but might also damage their pipes or destroy the bacteria in their septic tank. This will stop the septic system from working altogether and may cost them thousands of dollars to repair.
Problems Hydro-Jetting Solves
Hydro-jetting is a great way to make sure your drains will continue working properly. If used properly and on a regular amount of time throughout the year hydro-jetting will save you tons of money that would otherwise be spent on products like drain cleaners and costly repair projects.
The most common sewer issues hydro-jetting solves include:
- Hair buildup
- Tiny, hair-like roots that can extend up and down the pipe for many feet
Also, if a customer wants to have his or her pipe lined, hydro-jetting may be necessary to make sure that the pipe is absolutely clean. A pipe that’s lined with debris can cause pipe lining to fail.
