Water jetting, which is also often called hydro jetting, is simply using a high velocity stream of highly pressurized water to get rid of accumulated grease, oils, scale, and other build-ups in sewer and drain lines. Most people think this drain clearing service is only useful for businesses like restaurants, but sometimes it is the best option for homeowners. There are a number of different things that could lead to clogged drains and sewer lines, including:
- Soap scum
- Inorganic items
- Sanitary products
- Paper products
In a typical home, you may be operating with as low as 25% of the available drain diameter because of buildups and clogs. This reduced diameter leaves your drains slow and inefficient, and if the problem is allowed to continue untreated, it will get much worse, and eventually, your sewer drains will restrict water flow entirely.
If sewage problems are left untreated or aren’t properly identified, these issues can lead to costly repairs and even damage to your landscape. We’ll always make sure that we pinpoint the precise problems before we begin any type of sewer repair or drain cleaning work. Often this will involve DrainVision video drain inspection services.
If tough clogs or roots are preventing your home’s sewer lines from functioning as they should, our sewer jetting services can completely eliminate the problems.
How High Pressure Jetting Works
Jetting uses highly pressurized streams of water which are fed through nozzles into your sewer drain system. The water jets blast through the clogs, getting rid of roots, blockage, grease, and soaps, and thoroughly cleaning the pipe wall surfaces.
