What's Hydrojetting and How It Works?

Discovering that your pipe is heavily clogged can be quite annoying. Sometimes, pipes clog as a result of build-up of scale, silt, or sand on the walls. Clogs are mostly present largely due to the age of the plumbing system. This is because with age, the clog causing debris increases.

A lot of people make use of the old snaking method to eliminate the clog, but this method is however inefficient as it only breaks up the clog leaving the build-up on the pipe walls. Hydro-jetting is the only alternative that works as it completely eliminates the build-up and the clog. Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers hydro jetting services for residential apartments and workplaces, give us a call now to experience the difference.

What is hydro-jetting?

Hydro-jetting is a relatively inexpensive and quick technique of dealing with clogged pipes and sewer lines with the use of pressurized water. Hydro-jetting is environmental friendly as compared to other cleaning techniques as it makes use of no chemicals. It is an advanced technique that makes use of technology to clean and remove both the clog caused by debris and the build-up from the pipe, thus, improving the functioning capacity of old lines. When repairing pipes that aren’t functioning well, hydro-jetting is usually used in preparing the pipes for relining.  

Hydro-jetting is also used by restaurants in removing the build-up of grease and food particles on pipe walls.

How is it done?

Firstly, a video inspection of the lines is observed. Carrying out a video inspection is mainly to determine the root cause, the overall condition of the pipe and to find the exact location of the clog. The hydro-jetting device has a tiny fiber optic camera, which is located on its head. The technicians know exactly what to look out for in ensuring that the system is sufficiently cleaned and to also prevent damage.

As soon as the clog is located, the jets which are installed on the head of the device are activated. Not just any head is used; the technician selects the most appropriate hydro-jetting head and pressure to deal with the clogging problem. Once this is done, hot water at a pressure of 8,000 or 4,000 psi is shot in the direction of the clog to obliterate it. This force will break up obstructions and even obstacles found in the pipe. It also clears the pipe of build-up which slowly initiates clogging.

Benefits of hydro-jetting

Hydro-jetting service completely rids the pipes of clogs unlike traditional methods that leave debris behind. It leaves the inside of the pipes devoid of sludge or build-up.

Unlike the traditional procedure with a mechanical snake, a hydro-jetting system is very economical as a single service has a long term effect before the need for another service.
