If your home’s drains are slow to run off wastewater or if they’re completely blocked, then it’s imperative that you get them unclogged as soon as possible. And though in many cases a commercial drain cleaner solution or using a plunger can help, oftentimes, clogs are more resistant.
Unfortunately, clogs don’t go away on their own. It’s important to understand that they’re often the result of sediment that’s built up over time. Another possible scenario is that the drain’s become clogged by tree roots, which force their way into the pipe looking for the nutrients in the wastewater. If this is the case, then you’ve got a serious blockage that needs professional attention.
Hydro-jetting is a highly advanced plumbing technique that uses water to remove blockages from drains. The water is forced into the drain at high pressure, which in turn breaks up the clogs and flushes them away. And since the water runs through the entire drain, it also removes sediment that’s reducing the diameter of the pipe through the entire length of the pipe, making it less likely that you’ll have problems with clogs in the future.
The beauty of hydro-jetting is that it’s completely non-invasive. That means no digging is needed to access the pipes. Your plumber can simply access the pipe at the beginning of a section and apply the hydro-jetting from there.
At the same time, since this technique uses just water, there’s no need for chemical solutions. This is better for the environment and safer for humans and pets on your property.
In addition to using hydro-jetting for acute drain clog problems, it can also be used as a preventative measure to regularly clean drains. This minimizes the chances of clogs building up and causing problems.
