BENEFITS OF HYDRO JETTING
1. Cleaning, not just unclogging
Accumulations of grease, silt, fats, soap, detergents, dirt, mineral deposits, and other components of sludge inside the pipe are often the precursor to recurrent sewer clogs. Unfortunately, a rotating snake does little different than punch a hole in the clog to restore ﬂow. It doesn’t address the ongoing issues of sludge that are likely to result in a recurrence very soon. Hydro-Jetting cleans the internal pipe for a more long-lasting resolution. High-pressure Hydro-Jetting can also be used to remove roots in drains by using specialized cutting tools driven by the water jets. Hydro-Jet cleaning is ideal for sewer lines, and kitchen blocked drains, laundry lines, tubs, showers, lavatory sinks, and ﬂoor drains.
2. Accurate and Consistent Cleaning
One of the best things about Hydro-Jetting is the ability to clear underground drain pipes without having to dig up your yard. The high-pressure water stream goes through the sewer system spinning both water and sand from multiple angles to ensure the drainpipes are clean and bright. This is particularly useful when cleaning drains in homes with corroded pipes and infrastructure that you would otherwise have to damage just to remove the clog.
3. Powerful and Eﬃcient for Residual Removal
Hydro-Jet cleaning is more eﬃcient than many other drain cleaning methods. It can penetrate deeper into built-up debris and ﬂush out roots, rocks, minerals, and any other obstructions that can clog up and get caked onto your pipes. Hydro-Jets come in diﬀerent sizes, so an experienced plumber can determine the appropriate pressure force to remove debris without damaging the pipes.
4. Removing Bacteria
The stream of water is so forceful that it removes not only the grease, soap, and scum build-up, but also any bacteria that settles in your drains from your kitchen or bathroom, resulting in a myriad of problems. If you’re experiencing foul smells from your drains, Hydro-Jetting can help address that issue and leave your drain pipes clean and fresh.
5. More economical and environmentally safe
Single pipe cleaning with a Hydro-Jetting system can delay the need for another service call to clear blockages or tree roots up to four times longer than a typical procedure with a mechanical snake. This reduces sewer service expenses over the long term. Unlike conventional snake-type cleaners that break up debris only to re-clog later on or sometimes harmful and dangerous liquids are used, jet water obliterates the clog, safely, preventing self-healing clogs of substances such as grease from re-forming and in a very environmentally safe. While traditional drain cleaning should be done a minimum of two times a year, Hydro-Jetting is so detailed that it secures your pipes against clogs for several years, saving you money in the long run.
