Hydro jetting is one of the best options available for unclogging tough blockages in hard-to-reach sections of pipes. At H2O Pro Drainage, we offer hydro jetting services for different types of pipes and drains to help prevent pipes from backing up and causing property damage.
What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting uses a high-pressure water hose and directional nozzle to wind through a pipe and find blockages of any kind. The directional nozzle sprays highly pressurized water in all directions to ensure that every surface of the pipe wall is completely clean. Hydro jetting has been around as a practice for many years but, until recently, it was not available to homeowners or smaller businesses due to the high price of the equipment required. Depending on the application, hydro jetters use water pressure from 1,800 to 5,000 PSI to blast away debris and residue. There are different styles of hydro jetter nozzles that are customized to each type of task or clog, which means that hydro jetters are able to accomplish nearly any pipe cleaning job.
The Advantages of Hydro Jetting
Unlike chemical cleaners, hydro jetters do not introduce harmful substances into a pipe or waterline. Because water is the only means by which clogs are destroyed, hydro jetting is an environmentally friendly plumbing practice. Hydro jetting can be used to break apart nearly any type of clog and it can also be used to clean out grease, grime, or dirt in pipes. Unlike plumbing snakes, which merely punch a hole in clogs, hydro jetters fully remove blockages and debris, returning pipes to a like-new state.
Hydro jetting from H2O Pro Drainage
If done improperly, hydro jetting has the potential to damage pipes and harm users or bystanders. For this reason, a hydro jetter should always be handled by a trained and experienced professional. Water pressure needs to be regulated to suit the type of pipe being unclogged or cleaned, as too much pressure can wear down pipes and make them more susceptible to bursting or collapsing. Our hydro jetters are able to tackle nearly any type of clog, and our highly experienced technicians know the best techniques to use for each application.
