Benefits of Hydro Jetting

If you own a home, chances are you are going to have some drain cleaning problems. When this happens, most people get in contact with a knowledgeable plumber in their area to fix the problems they are having. Always be sure to do your research before obtaining a plumber, check that they are reputable, have a plumber’s license, and are registered with the Better Business Bureau.

The plumber will have many ways of fixing your plumbing problems, but these days many people are looking into the option of hydro jetting. Hydro jetting is a process used by plumbers that uses high pressure water streams that comes out of water hose at up to 3,500 psi. The pressure is strong enough to clean out anything that may be clogging your pipes, such as grease, hair, or any other type of debris.

A hydro jetter is made up of a high-pressure hose, a big tank of water, a high strength nozzle, and a machine that pressurizes the water so that it is able to spray out of the hose at a high rate of speed, typically 3,500 psi and a flow rate of 18 GPM. The hydro jetters are capable of cleaning out sewer lines over several hundred feet.
Hydro jetters are typically used when snakes are unable to remove what is clogging up your drain. A camera inspection is done to determine if how serious the clog really is.
The cost of cleaning out your main sewer line is not too expensive. This includes Televised Color Inspection, and power washes the pipes to remove anything that is clogging up the sewer line. The entire process usually lasts around 3 to 4 hours. Other services include floor drain cleaning, bathtubs, showers and sinks, Kitchen sinks, and unclogging toilets.
