The Hydro Jetting Process Step-By-Step
If your pipes and drains encounter severe or frequent clogs or slow draining, it might be time to have your main sewer line cleared by a hydro jet plumbing professional. When you contact your local plumbing contractor for hydro jet drain and sewer cleaning services, most homeowners are surprised at just how efficient and effective the process really is. Here is a list of the 3 step process hydro jetting follows!
Step 1: Sewer Line Inspection
First, one of our professional plumbers will visit your home or building and access the main sewer line to perform a video camera inspection, which checks for any damaged or broken pipes. Next, video inspection will identify the areas and nature of any clogs or blockages. If the line is completely blocked at this stage, the plumbing technician may need to do a mechanical rooting to re-establish Waterflow, providing visibility for the video inspection.
Step 2: Pressure Jetting The Line
After the inspection and diagnostic, your plumbing technician will insert a special hose and cleaning head that delivers 7,000 to 60,000 psi of water pressure through your pipes and main sewer line. The cleaning head is strategically placed throughout the hose’s run to address clogs, blockages, and other problem areas. More often than not, several passes are made to fully clean away tough blockages and residue build-up, including but not limited to tree roots, grease, gunk, and sludge.
Step 3: Quality Inspection
After hydro-jetting thoroughly, the sewer line is once again inspected with a video camera to ensure that all build-up, blockages, and clogs have been removed, so your pipes are clear and your entire plumbing system can operate at peak performance.
Keep in mind that high-pressure hydro jetting is the best clearing method, completing 2 ultimate objectives:
- The break-up and flushing of mineral deposits and other debris that are blocking your sewer line flow, bursting open even the toughest of blockages.
- A pressure washing of sewer line and pipe walls while also deep cleaning the full diameter of the pipe, flushing debris and leaving lines clear without damaging them.
