What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro Jetting is a plumbing technique that utilizes a high pressure stream of water to blast away years of accumulated grime and build-up from the insides of drain or sewer pipes. Blockages are broken up or forced through the pipeline by extremely powerful jets of water. The equipment used to perform hydro jetting consists of a power nozzle that’s hooked up to a motor that helps generate water pressure levels of 4,000 PSI or more.
When Should Hydro Jetting Be Used?
Hydro jetting can blast through just about any clog and can restore pipes to brand-new levels when a standard plumbing snake doesn’t get the job done. Therefore, it is typically put to use for some of the most difficult clogs around. The technique works on all kinds of blockages: roots, scale, grease, rust and other sediments can all be cleared out through hydro jetting. In particular, restaurants and other businesses can really benefit from this service if they’re put a lot of use and strain on their plumbing systems or if they notice their kitchen or bathroom drains experiencing stubborn clogs. That said, this technique can definitely be used on residential properties that experience similar levels of blockage.
When Should Repiping Be Used?
Sometimes hydro jetting can’t address every problem, such as a collapsed pipeline. When such physical damage occurs, water streams simply can’t put a pipe together. In these cases, you’ll need physical replacement of damaged areas of pipe, or replacement of the entire line.
So Why Are Hydro Jetting and Repiping Related?
Simply put, by combining these two methods you can pretty much restore any plumbing or sewer system to brand new quality with the highest performance possible. If your system is really struggling, using hydro jetting and repiping will ensure that all structural damage is addressed and all internal buildup is removed.
