How Does Hydrojet Plumbing Work?
Consisting of a high-pressure hose with a high-strength nozzle, a large water tank, and a pressurization unit all working together, the hydro-jet system forces water into drainage pipes at a high pressure (usually between 3,500 and 4,000 psi) to get rid of obstructions.
As your contractor, we would suggest doing a video inspection first to figure out what the issue is and locate it before we start cleaning. It would be beneficial especially if there are larger roots in the area, possibly requiring a snaking method performed beforehand, or there may be broken pipes, where hydro-jetting may cause more damage to areas of weakness. Call us today and we will explain it to you thoroughly.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I use a hydro jet?
If your pipes have heavy buildup and blockages, that is the best time to use a hydro jet. You can also use it as maintenance to prevent further clogging.
How often should you hydro jet?
We highly recommend the use of hydro jets once a year.
Who should perform hydro jetting?
Trained drain technicians should perform hydro jetting on commercial buildings. Technicians that are not specifically trained to do this may only cause damage.
What is the difference between snaking and Hydro Jetting my pipe?
Snaking, or cabling a sewer line uses a steel cable with a blade cutter at the end that operates on an electric motor. The modern way to clean a drain is by using hydro jetting. For long distance cleaning, this is the way to go.
Hydro jet can clean pipes of up to 500 feet and uses up to 18 gallons of water per minute. It has a pressure power of 4,000 pounds per square inch that effectively flushes buildup and debris from the pipes.
