Sewer Problems? Hydro Jetting Could Be Your Solution!

Your sewer line may not need to be replaced or repaired! In many cases we can blow your sewer lines clean and leave them working like brand new with our Hydro Jetting service.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro Jetting (a.k.a Hydro Scrubbing) is a process in which your sewer pipes are scoured by streams of high-pressure water shooting out of a hose at up to 3,500 psi. These high-pressure streams are strong enough to cut through and clear out any debris in your sewer lines.

How does Hydro Jetting work?

Hydro Jetting is typically done through an opening called a cleanout, an accessible opening present in every plumbing system that is designed to allow plumbers to easily “clean out” debris and other clogs. A Hydro Jetter consists of a large tank of water, a special high-pressure hose, a special high-strength nozzle, and a machine which pressurizes the water in the hose so that it can spray out of the nozzle at a pressurized rate of up to 3,000 psi and a flow rate of 18 gpm. Every plumbing system is designed to carry waste water “downstream” using gravity. The Hydro Jetting nozzle is placed at the “downstream” end of the plumbing system. It then works its way “upstream” against gravity. That way, any debris cleared out by the Hydro Jetter will harmlessly flow downstream where the drainage path is already clear.

What are the benefits of Hydro Jetting?

Hydro Jetting can easily cut through the most stubborn roots and debris. It can also remove built-up mineral deposits and other obstructions clogging the inside of your drainage line. Although Hydro Jetting is strong enough to clear out roots from your sewer lines, any amount of root penetration is cause for serious concern. Root penetration pervasive enough to cause repeated backups indicates that the roots have gotten thick enough over time to damage the pipe and its protective waterproof inner coating.
