How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
When you have a clog in your drains that has to be taken care of in order to get your home back up and running properly, hydro jetting can be the best option for that. The way that this process works, is that the clog is first found inside the drain and determined to be a certain size and strength. This will be able to tell us how much water and pressure to use when pushing the clog out of the drain. Hydro jetting can be used in two different situations: emergencies and for prevention. In an emergency, a clog can cause backup to occur and raw sewage to come out of your pipes or back through your faucets and into your home. This will happen when there is pressure buildup in your lines and no way for water or sewage to pass through. It will then come back up through your system and out essentially, wherever it can. You can also use hydro jetting as a form of preventative maintenance so that you can make sure that clogs do not occur. One f the best times to do this is when you are moving into a new home that was previously lived in. The jetting action will spray water at high speeds, into the pipes and clear oil and anything that may be trapped. Things like hair and even tree roots that are extremely hard to get out, will be removed using this method. Depending on the size of the clog and the quality of your piping system, the pressure of the water will be adjusted, and we will go from there. This way is very quick and causes no damage to your sewage system. We recommend that everyone do this at some point because it will leave your pipes clean and ready to go without a clog in site. Before this process is started though, your plumber should always be doing a camera inspection. This will allow them to see what is actually in your pipes and be able to determine if there is any other damage as well. Very often, a plumber will be called out for a clog and do a camera inspection, only to find that there is actually more damage in the pipe than anyone knew. This will save you a lot of time and money in the long run as well.
What Are the Benefits Of Hydro Jetting?
Saves You Money – Using this technique is a great way to clean out your sewer lines. Although this way will cost you more money upfront than it would to just snake the drain, a hydro-jetting will clear everything out of your lines and start you off brand-new again. This will allow your pipes to stay clean, unlike snaking which can miss a lot of clogs that are too far down to reach. Also, if the plumbing company that you choose, charges by the house, you will want to use hydro jetting because it is much faster than many other methods.
Effective – Hydro jetting is an easy choice simply because, it works. It gets the job done and will leave your pipes and lines clear so that you can feel confident that nothing else will come up down the road.
Clean – This process is extremely clean and leaves very little mess. The only thing you may have to worry about is a little bit of splashing water. This will keep the raw sewage out of your home and away from the plumber doing the work. It will also keep clogs from even entering your home and will just push them through and away.
Great For Homes – If you plan to buy a home that has been previously lived in, you never really know what goes down these peoples pipes. Even with inspections, we see problems come up after the new owners move in, all of the time. It may be a good idea to have this service written into your closing offer or have it done as soon as you move in so that you don’t have any expensive problems down the line. You should ask the previous owners if they have ever had this done and if they say no and the house is over 7-10 years old, it is extremely important that you do this no matter what.
