Hydro jetting is one of the proven drain cleaning methods for clearing stubborn clogs in drain and sewer pipelines. Because it’s more powerful than other techniques, it’s also a preventative measure against recurring clogs and other issues.
At Discount Drain Cleaning LV, we often receive a lot of questions about hydro jetting services. We answer some of the commonly asked questions about this method below.
What is a Hydro Jetter?
A hydro jetter is a powerful pressure washer that we insert into drain and sewer pipes. It has a water pressure as high as 3,500 or 4,000 pounds per square inch (PSI) to effectively clear out any blockage and restore drain flow.
How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
Pipe jetting operates from one access point in the sewer line. The jetting process usually starts with a preliminary camera inspection to examine the pipe’s condition. Then, we insert a jetting nozzle that blasts highly pressurized water, cutting through limescale, grease, debris, and tree roots that may have infiltrated and blocked the line in search of water. The ultimate goal is to leave your pipes clean and clear, making them less prone to clogs in the future.
Is Hydro Jetting Safe for Pipes?
In general terms, hydro jetting in Henderson, NV is practical for drain lines. The difference is often the age and state of the line. If the drain has become fragile due to wear and tear, it could be susceptible to damage and would be a better candidate for a pipe replacement.
How Is Jetting Different Than Drain Snaking?
Snaking involves using a hand-operated auger attached end of a flexible cable that can break up small clogs that haven’t made it past the trap, and restore flow, often temporarily. Meanwhile, hydro jetting is a more effective solution for serious clogs. By hydro jetting roots, grease clinging to pipes, and even dried concrete, you can rest assured that your drains will remain clean and clear for a long time.
How Do Technicians Access a Blocked Line?
Most drain lines have a cleanout, which is a built-in access point. They are often recognizable as capped posts in the ground. For smaller drains, the technicians can access a line in the same way they would for snaking a home’s toilet or drain.
Can I Do Hydro Jetting Myself?
No. Sewer jetting involves expensive specialized equipment that can be dangerous to use without a specialist’s training. Always get professional assistance from Discount Drain Cleaning LV for safe and effective cleaning.
