The Hydro Jetting Process
- After a sewer inspection should there be need of it, we will start by identifying a clean out or other point of access to the plumbing system near the problem area.
- Next we insert a high-pressure hose into the plumbing. The hose draws water from a special tank that pressurizes the water.
- Depending on what problem we identify, the technician will then determine what amount of pressure is sufficient to solve the issue.
- With the appropriate pressure set, we introduce high-pressure water into in the plumbing through the hose.
- When water has taken care of the obstruction in the pipes, we remove the high-pressure hose from the plumbing and close the access point.
- Finally, we test the plumbing system to ensure that the pipes are clear and operating properly.
What is Sewer Jetter?
A sewer jetter is a type of hydro jetter Windsor Plumbing uses to clear sewer lines. It is a fairly large machine that pressurizes the water and sends it through the sewer jetter hose. The sewer jetter hose has special nozzles. We advance the nozzle into or through clogged area's. The smaller nozzle shoots the high pressure water forward and the larger nozzle shoots water backward. This way, we clear debris in the sewer line via both directions. We also have the right technology available when it comes to sewer inspection for blocked lines.
Sewer hydro jetting to remove debris
Sewer hydro jetting combines the power of pressurized water with the mechanical cutting tool of a rooter to clear out debris. This includes the tough webs of tree roots which commonly clog sewer lines, as well as heavy grease clogs. Recurring sewer backups is something you want professionally cared for as soon as possible.
Hydro Jetting Services for Drain Cleaning
You may have used a professional plumber service for drain cleaning when you have had a clogged drain in the past. The typical tools you may have seen used were plumbing snakes. This is a thin, flexible metal strip that is snaked down through the clogged drain until it reaches the clog. Then the snake is manipulated to loosen the material causing the clog and allow water to drain through the pipe again.
Plumber hydro jetting of pipe walls
Clogs and blockage develop as hair and other small debris catch on the rough surface inside your pipes. That roughness of the inner pipe walls has developed over time as mineral deposits adhere to the pipe wall. Hydro jetting works like a pressure washer blasting those mineral deposits off the walls of your pipes. As a result, your pipes are likely to stay clear of clogs longer after having been cleaned by plumber hydro jetting.
Hydro jet cleaning to remove clogs
Chemical drain cleaners take time to work. Even after sitting in your drain for an extended time, they seldom remove the entire clog. That means the clog will just reform again as hair and other materials collect on the remaining clog debris. The water pressure from a hydro jet cleaning using a drain jetter can do a more thorough job. It can remove the blockage from all types of clogs — hair, toilet paper, etc.
Hydro Jetting Sewer Line Blockage
Sometimes clogs go beyond the drains in your home and settle into the sewer lines outside your house. Grease can often flow through your warm internal plumbing without a problem. When the grease reaches the cool underground sewer lines it solidifies and begins to block the flow of water and sewage. Maintenance by hydro jetting sewer lines will minimize blockages that could possibly result in line breakage. A problem that requires more drastic and expensive sewer line repair.
Sewer Line Jetting to Clear Tree Roots
When the blockage is in your sewer pipes, the culprit can be even harder to remove. Tree roots often manage to force their way into underground sewer pipes. The flowing water feeds the growth of the roots, making it difficult for water and solids to pass through the pipe.
