What is Hydrojetting?
Hydro-jetting is a method which uses water sprayed under high pressure to wash out a sewage pipe. You might require this cleaning technique in case your primary drain is severely clogged. The fantastic thing is that hydrojetting is among the services provided by our specialists in Plumbing & A/C Medic.
How does Hydrojetting work?
The manner hydrojetting works is fairly easy. First, our plumber finds out a clean out plug. This is a location from the plumbing system which permits them to access the interior of the pipe. It is nothing like what happens when you turn in your garden hose, even if you think your garden hose is powerful.
The pressure the water is below can be as high as 5000 pounds per square inch. Some hoses can also be equipped with scouring heads to really clean grease, hair, soap scum, limescale and other debris out of the interior lining of the pipes pipes. As the pressurized water and scouring head function, the debris in the pipes is knocked loose and can be finally flushed to the sewer or the septic tank.
Removing debris in this manner has turned out to be more successful than using only a scouring machine. The jet of water is potent enough to dislodge a tree roots which have infiltrated into the pipes.
However, these roots can be quite nice and can grow so dense that they burst the pipe. Meanwhile, it is extremely hard for anything to get past them, which leads to back-ups in the plumbing system.
When roots make this invasive, hydrojetting won’t help. We can use different procedures to clean roots from your plumbing.
