Hydro-jetting is a technique where our plumbers use a powerful jet of water to clear out and clean your main drain or sewer line. The water is delivered under pressure far more powerful than a garden hose. With hydro-jetting, water is blasted at from 3,000 to 8,000 pounds of pressure per square inch. This ensures that tough clogs and even the invasive roots of trees are knocked loose and that sludge and limescale that line the drain are also scoured away.
Though hydro-jetting is associated with businesses such as restaurants, it is also used to clear the drains of our customers’ homes. Here are some ways such powerful cleaning can save money.
Hydro-jetting Completely Cleans the Line
Even snakes and rooters don’t completely take away the buildup of grime, sludge, and other debris that line the inside of your main drain. This leaves a base for an accumulation of more sludge, grime, and limescale. Eventually, you’ll have to call in a plumber to clear that away. If they don’t use hydro-jetting, a layer of grime will inevitably be left to start the cycle all over again. Not only this, but when it gets as cold in the winter as it does in Grand Forks, ND, the residue can freeze and cause even more problems with your plumbing.
Tree roots can become so invasive that they completely fill your sewer line, which can lead to gruesome back-ups in your plumbing fixtures. Roots can even cause the pipe to burst. Repairing a sewer line can be very expensive and disruptive to your property, especially if the plumber has to dig a trench to find the broken sections of pipe and replace them.
The Process Is Cleaner
The very process of hydro-jetting is cleaner than rooters or snakes. Rooters, snakes, and other drain-cleaning methods can inadvertently bring contaminants into your home and/or property. Cleaning up these contaminants is another expense that hydro-jetting saves you.
Hydro-jetting Does Not Use Harsh Chemicals
Hydro-jetting uses nothing but water to clear your main drain or sewer line. Harsh chemicals can eat away at your pipes over time. This can cause them to fail and cost you a great amount of money to replace them.
