Benefits of Maintenance and Hydro-jetting
Sewer line and drain maintenance are essential to preventing bigger problems from accumulating in the future. Clogged drains or sewer lines are the most common reason for emergency plumbing calls, because they cause smelly waste to back up into the house. Hydro-jetting is one of the most efficient ways to clean and maintain those ever important sewer lines.
What is Hydro-jetting?
Have you ever cleaned a driveway or the side of a house with a pressure washer? It uses high pressure water jets to blast away dirt and debris. Hydro-jetting works in much the same way, using high pressure water jets to clean out sewer lines, cutting through roots and blasting away clogs. Hydro-jet cleaning is done at much higher pressures than traditional pressure washers can generate.
Are there any risks with hydro-jetting? Unlike many plumbing solutions, this is not one that should be attempted by the do it yourselfer. Always hire a professional plumber for all your hydro-jetting needs, for two reasons:
- The pipes must be inspected before they can be hydro-jetted. Large roots may need to be cut up before they can be jetted.
- Hydro-jetting can damage already weakened pipes, causing even more problems.
Who can benefit from hydro-jetting?
Anyone who owns, lives, or works in a building with indoor plumbing can benefit from hydro-jetting maintenance. Drains in residential properties can become clogged with sand, dirt, or hair from people taking their daily showers. In restaurants or buildings that prepare food, hydro-jetting is ideal to prevent clogs caused by cooking grease or food waste. If you’re constantly calling your local plumber to have your lines snaked, consider having them hydro-jetted instead. Snakes and the like are great for breaking up clogs and getting your drains flowing again, but they don’t remove all the debris from the pipes. A snake breaking through a clog of hair, for example, may leave some hair and other wastes stuck to the edges of the pipe. This creates the perfect surface for items to cling to and create a new clog, requiring yet another visit from your local plumber. Hydro-jetting not only breaks up the clog, it blasts away all of the remaining debris, leaving a smooth inner surface on the pipe. This helps to increase the pipe’s flow rate as well as preventing future clogs from forming.
Hydro-jetting is one of the most effective ways to make sure your drain lines get cleaned and stay clean for as long as possible. Yes, it will cost you more than having us come out to snake your drain, but it will stay clean for much longer. This effectively reduces your overall costs simply because you won’t have to call the plumber out as often. Thank you for visiting Kizen Plumbing. We appreciate you stopping by!
