Clogged Sewer Lines Are No Match For A Hydro-Jet
Most people are quick to reach for a bottle of drain cleaner whenever they have a clogged drain. Unfortunately, the toxic chemicals in those bottles rarely do the job and, more often than not, make the problem worse. When it comes to larger clogs, drain cleaners are practically useless.
When your lines seem to be completely blocked, you may feel like giving up. That’s when plumbing companies like Dependable Rooter & Plumbing bring in the Hydro-Jet. Professional plumbers can clear away just about any obstruction in your lines using nothing but water.
What is the Hydro-Jetting Process?
Simply put, hydro-jetting is the process of using pressurized water to clean sewer and kitchen lines. Generally, plumbers bring a van with hydro-jetting equipment to the service location. Before the hydro-jetting occurs, plumbers must clean as much of the blockage using augers and other hand tools.
Then, using various nozzle heads, pressurized water of up to 15,000 psi is shot through the location’s pipes. This water is meant to knock loose any material left behind by the initial cleaning.
The result is an immaculate set of pipes that will allow for easy flow. The added benefit is that sewer odors will no longer linger in your home.
When Should I Use Hydro-Jetting?
Unless you own a restaurant, the chances of your needing Hydro-Jetting are slim. Most home drains can be easily cleared by professionals using hand tools. However, kitchen drains can occasionally find themselves clogged.
The mixture of food scraps, grease, and hair that often forms these obstructions is difficult to remove with hand tools. In this case, a hydro-jetting my be needed to clean your lines.
Of course, if you do own a restaurant, then hydro-jetting may be a service that you will find yourself needing regularly. Restaurants tend to deal with both high volumes of waste and irresponsible customers.
