A clog in your sewer drain can cause significant issues. Plumbing, septic tanks and interior fixtures can’t function properly until the clog has been cleared. The latest innovation in sewer drain cleaning makes this task easier and faster. The new technology is hydro-jetting. Here’s the scoop on this helpful sewer drain cleaning technique.
What is hydro-jetting?
This method to clean a sewer drain involves forcing water under high pressure through the plumbing. The pressure, which can be greater than 4000 pounds per square inch (psi), effectively cleans out the sewer pipes.
How is hydro-jetting different than a hose?
There are two key differences between using a standard hose and using hydro-jetting to clean a sewer drain. First, hydro-jet systems use high-pressure water. While some hoses can offer moderately high water pressure, they do not compare to the strength of the water in a hydro-jet system. Second, the hydro-jet system is omni-directional. This means the water sprays in every direction inside the pipe, so it washes away debris on every side of the plumbing at once.
What are the benefits of hydro-jetting?
- It’s effective: Due to the high pressure and omni-directional spray, hydro-jetting methods can quickly clean clogs from septic tanks, storm drains and sewer drains. The system thoroughly cleans the pipes, to remove even the toughest clogs and help prevent future blockages.
- It’s eco-friendly: Hydro-jetting is designed to flush septic tanks, sewer drains and storm drains using minimal amounts of water. Additionally, this method requires no chemicals, so there is no risk of contaminating the water supply with harsh toxins.
- It’s economical: This method helps prevent future clogs, so it can help reduce maintenance and repair costs down the line. Because it does not require chemicals, there is no cost for these products. The lack of chemical involvement also makes hydro-jetting easier on pipes, so they are less likely to suffer damage during or after the cleaning process.
- It’s efficient: Hydro-jetting removes clogs quickly, so it’s the perfect choice for emergency situations. When you need a method that requires little effort and produces fast results, hydro-jetting is your go-to option.
