Hydro-jetting, also known as high-pressure drain cleaning, is a non-invasive process that relies on using highly pressurized water to clean slow-moving drains and clogged sewage lines. Plumbers send high-pressure water jets through the pipes to remove blockages effectively. It’s basically pressure washing the interiors of plumbing pipes with up to 4000 PSI of water pressure. Hydro-jetting is an effective way to break up tough clogs, eliminate persistent odors in your pipes, and prevent the likelihood of future clogs and backups. This drain cleaning process can remove all kinds of obstructions in pipes, including:
For hydro-jetting, a plumber uses a hydro-jetting system, which consists of a specialized hose, a high-pressure nozzle, and a machine that produces powerful streams of water. Prior to hydro-jetting, a plumber carries out a video inspection of the line to make sure the pipe is in good condition. Video line inspection also helps plumbers to determine if your pipe isn’t collapsed instead clogged. Hydro-jetting is not safe for cracked or damaged pipes because the high-pressure water jets can break frail pipes. Once the plumber has determined your pipe is in good condition and can withstand hydro-jetting, they will insert the nozzle and hose into the pipe via a cleanout and activate the hydro-jetting machine. Your plumber will adjust the water pressure based on the needs of your drain lines and the hose and nozzle move through the pipe, shooting pressurized water both forward and backward to remove clogs and clean the walls of the pipe. As simple as the process may seem, you can’t perform this task yourself if you are not an experienced plumber. With a DIY approach, you’ll end up damaging your pipes and spending much more money on pipe replacement. It’s always a good idea to call a dependable plumber to help you with hydro-jetting drain cleaning.
