Hydro-jetting sewer lines is an advance plumbing technology that deals age-old problems. A sewer lateral obstructed by clog or intruding tree roots that might inflict damage on delicate, aging pipes. or, even worse, a blocked sewer required excavation of your front yard, marring your landscape until time erases the signs.
The principle of hydro-jetting sewer lines involves the use of extremely high-pressure water to obliterate
blockages. Threaded deep into the sewer pipes at the end of the thin, flexible water line, the head contains tiny jets that dispense hot water at knife-like pressure up to 4000 p.s.i. This powerful water force not only reduces blockages including tree roots to a semi- solid slurry that flows freely down the pipe; it also scours internal pipe surfaces to remove sludge build-up initiates clogging - all without the trauma inflicted to pipes by mechanical snakes and rotating blades.
Our plumbing professional will utilize fiber-optic video technology
to locate and identify the nature of clog, as well as assess the overall condition of your pipes. Based on this visual evaluation, he'll select the hydro-jetting head and pressure best suited to handle problem.
Cleaning, not just clogging.
Accumulations of grease, soap and other components of sludge in side the pipes are often the precursor to recurrent sewer clogs. Unfortunately, a rotating snake does little other than punch a hole in the clog to restore flow. It doesn't address the ongoing issues of sludge that are likely to result in a recurrence very soon. Hydro- jetting cleans the internal pipe for a more long-lasting resolution.
- More Economical. A single pipe cleaning with a hydro-jetting system can delay the need for another service call to clear blockages or tree roots up to four times longer than a typical procedure with a mechanical snake. This reduces sewer service expenses over the long term.
