How Does Sewer Jetting Work?
Sewer jetting equipment, also called hydro jetting equipment, creates high pressures of water and sends it through a hose. The hose ends in one of many different types of nozzles, each equipped to punch through debris, break it up, and flush it out of your pipes. A clogged drain or septic system is simply no match for this amount of pressure. Any sewage, fat deposits or other clog will be removed.
Hydro jetting is more powerful and more precise than a rooter or other drain service options. The nozzles are high-engineered to perform specific tasks. Some nozzles use the pressure of the water to propel themselves through the pipe, providing quick cleaning. Or, we may may provide a deeper clean by pulling the hose and nozzle back through the line, using rear jets to remove more debris from the pipe instead.
As sewer jetting equipment generates such high amounts of force, potentially 4,000 PSI or more, they are an excellent solution for even the largest sewer mains. Smaller equipment can be used in residential settings, even single detached homes.
Whether you have a partial clog, a complete clog, or other sewer issues such as frozen pipes or tree root clogs, we can assess your needs and recommend if hydro jetting is the right solution for you. Sewer back-ups can be a plumbing emergency, and our hydro jetters can be deployed quickly to resolve your emergency.
