Hydro Sewer Jetting - The Advantages
We Now Offer Hydro Sewer Jetting!
Hydro-jetting sewer lines is the latest advancement is sewer cleaning technology now available to deal with age-old problems. A sewer lateral obstructed by a clog or intruding tree roots used to mean snaking with a mechanical rooter that might inflict damage on delicate, aging pipes. Or, even worse, a blocked sewer required excavation of your front yard, damaging your landscape resulting in costly cleanup and restoration work.
The principle of hydro-jetting sewer lines involves the use of extremely high-pressure water to break-up and dislodge blockages. Threaded deep into the sewer pipe at the end of a thin, flexible water line, the jetting head contains numerous tiny jets that dispense water at knife-like pressure up to 4000 p.s.i. The utilization of this powerful water force jetting reduces blockages, such as tree roots and grease accumulation to a semi-solid slurry that flows freely down the pipe. Additionally, this process scours and cleans the internal pipe surfaces to remove sludge build-up that can initiate clogging. As a process sewer jetting is much less invasive to the overall existing pipe material resulting in greatly reduced traumatic effect to pipes then by mechanical sewer cleaning means such as snakes and rotating blades.
As advanced plumbing professionals we have the state of the art equipment needed to perform fiber-optic video inspection of the problematic sewer to locate and identify the nature of the clog, as well as assess the overall condition of your pipes. Based on this visual evaluation, we can select the hydro-jetting head and pressure settings best suited to handle the problem.
Advantages of Hydro-Jetting Sewer Lines
Cleaning, not just unclogging. Accumulations of grease, soap and other components of sludge inside the pipe are often the precursor to recurrent sewer clogs. Unfortunately, a rotating mechanical snake does little other than punch a hole in the clog to restore flow. It does not address the ongoing issues of sludge that are likely to result in a recurrence of clogging shortly after mechanical snaking. Advanced Hydro-jetting cleans the internal pipe for a more long-lasting resolution. Moreover, since a single pipe cleaning with a high pressure hydro-jetting system can delay the need for future service calls to clear blockages up to four times longer than a typical clearing procedure utilizing a mechanical snake there is an added value and subsequent cost savings. Factoring in all the numerous advantages that Hydro-Jetting brings, most customers realize a substantial cost savings in sewer service related expenses over the long term by utilizing Hydro-Jetting.
