WHAT IS HYDRO-JETTING?
Hydro-jetting is a method of clearing drain clogs using pressurized water. A specialized nozzle on a water hose attached to the hydro-jetting machine spews out high-pressure water. The nozzle enters the drain from an opening such as a toilet, a cleanout, or a roof vent. The high-pressure jet of water cleans the drain by flushing out obstructions and also cleaning the pipe’s surface.
WHEN TO USE HYDRO-JETTING?
We do not think too much about drains until they start causing problems. Slowly draining bathtubs, toilets, and sinks start to get annoying and unsanitary to use. If we are lucky, a plunger takes care of the problem. You may even get a professional to use a snake cable, a great tool, to open the clog. Snake cable pokes through the blockage and pushes the obstruction down the drain. The new opening makes way for water to continue draining until the drain starts to slow again and the clog eventually builds back up. A plunger or plumber’s snake may often clear a clogged drain of any hair or other material that’s blocking the pipe, however, it won’t do much to clean out any buildups on the walls of the pipes.
Hydro-jetting, however, does more by clearing the clog and cleaning the drain around the clog to prevent future clog build up. The buildups take away draining space, slowing down the flow of water, and making it easier for clogs to close up the drain. While snaking clears the clog by taking care of the symptom(s), hydro-jetting takes it a step further by removing the cause of the buildup(s). Hydro-jetted drain stays cleared longer. The main difference between the use of cable and the use of a Hydro-Jetter is the quality and longevity of the provided solution.
COULD YOUR PROPERTY USE HYDRO-JETTING?
If you are in charge of commercial properties such as restaurants, apartment complexes, shopping malls, plazas, or parks that have heavy drain usage then you should definitely get a professional to scope out the sewer drain system for a recommendation on a regular preventative maintenance Hydro-Jetting. Having the pipes cleaned out regularly will go a long way by preventing costly clogs and slow drains issues.
