Let’s talk about hydro jetting

Sure, hydro jetting is a process used in plumbing and sewer drain cleaning to clear out clogs, blockages, and buildup in pipes using high-pressure water. Due to its sensitive nature, here's how it generally works:

Assessment: First, we will assess the situation to determine the best plan of action to resolve the problem without causing harm either internally or externally to the property while keeping the customers state of mind and finances in the forefront of our dealing.

Preparation: Before hydro jetting begins, the plumber/ drain cleaner will typically prepare the area by accessing the pipes and ensuring that surrounding areas are protected from water.

High-pressure water: Hydro jetting involves using a specialized machine that pumps water at extremely high pressure into the pipes. The pressure can range from 1,500 to 4,000 pounds per square inch (psi) or even higher.

Nozzles: The water is expelled through a specially designed nozzle at the end of a hose. These nozzles are often equipped with various jets that create sharp water to effectively clean diverse types of blockages and pipe materials.

Cleaning: As the high-pressure water is pumped through the pipes, it dislodges and breaks up any obstructions, including grease, sludge, mineral deposits, tree roots, and other debris.

Flushing: The dislodged debris is then flushed out of the pipes, leaving them clean and clear.

Inspection: After hydro jetting is complete, the plumber may perform a video inspection to ensure that the pipes are completely clear and there are no remaining issues.

Hydro jetting is an effective method for clearing tough blockages and buildup, and it is often preferred over traditional methods like snaking because it can thoroughly clean the entire diameter of the pipe and remove even stubborn deposits. Additionally, it is environmentally friendly since it does not involve the use of harsh chemicals. However, it is essential to have a professional plumber/ drain cleaner perform hydro jetting to avoid damage to the pipes, as the high-pressure water can be dangerous if not used correctly.
