What is Hydro Jetting?
When sewage lines become clogged or slowed down, professional plumbers use a technique called hydro jetting to clean them. They use a blast of water at extremely high pressure to elevate any blockages and build up in the line. A hydro jetting system typically uses around 35,000 psi of water in order to do what it needs to do. New Brunswick hydro jetting is a quick effective method to clear up your sewage lines.
Before using hydro jetting, a New Brunswick plumber can use video camera inspection to get to the true cause of the clog or blockage. Also, this will reduce the chance of backup flushing into different places. Since a hydro jetting system uses such great force the water could actually cut through roots. Although hydro-jetting can be seen as a fix for most issues, with great power comes great responsibility. A plumber must use hydro jetting with caution since the pressure of the water can cause weak piping to break.
How Does it Work?
A professional with requisite training should be the only one performing hydro jetting. Your plumber will feed a nozzle down into your piping (via your drain) – in most cases, it will be able to propel itself from the pressure. The nozzle may vary depending upon the job. Once the nozzle comes along the clog (ie. food, fabric, grease) the high-pressure jet will exert a powerful force to breakdown the material.
When Should You Use Hydro Jetting?
When clogs and backups happen in a residence, hydro jetting can be ideal for removing sand, silt, hair, scale as well as most residue that might build up in your New Brunswick home. In some instances roots may grow in your piping – hydro jetting will effectively eliminate the roots by breaking them down.
Commercial kitchens should have a regular schedule established to remove any grease and food particle build-up in the restaurant’s piping system.
A plumber might recommend this service as compared to traditional snaking because snaking only breaks up clogs and leaves build up untouched. Hydro jetting is also environmentally friendly. You don’t need to use any harsh chemicals.
