Hydro Jetting is fast becoming the preferred method of cleaning and unclogging plumbing pipes and sewer pipes for contractors across New England. However, there are still a great deal of property owners that are unsure if the technologically advanced method can actually cause damage to their plumbing and sewer pipes. The answer to that question is a resounding no. That being stated, there is a stipulation to that answer. A hydro jetting machine should only be operated in the field by a trained and experienced technician that knows exactly what he or she is doing.
Now that you know that hydro jetting is perfectly safe, we have another question for you. Have you ever experienced a clogged drain at your property? We know you are going to answer yes to this question because every property owner has certainly experienced it. This is due to the fact that over time materials build up and get stuck in your drains and pipes. This typically results in both slow drainage and overflows. Plungers and plumbing snakes can only do so much, and do not always work well enough to remove the clog.
Often times the job requires something stronger. That is exactly where hydro jetting comes into play. In addition to being powerful, hydro jetting is also safe, efficient, and cost effective. In essence, the hydro jetting method utilizes a hose in order to blast a continuous stream of high-pressure water through the pipes. The hydro jetting method not only clears the clogs, it also removes all debris located within the pipes, and thoroughly cleans the entire interior diameter of the pipes. In essence, hydro jetting power washes the interior of your plumbing and sewer pipes by breaking up and flushing any blockages, deposits, or buildups.
Keep in mind that as time goes by, your pipes build up deposits of grease, fats, soaps, detergents, minerals, silt, sludge and dirt. These materials lead to clogs within the pipes. Plumbing snakes only have the ability to punch a hole in the clog that is big enough to restore water or sewage flow. The bottom line is that it only addresses the problem on a temporary basis. On the other hand, hydro jetting has the ability to completely remove the buildup and the clogs if it gets to that point. Speaking of which, it is always a good idea to schedule a hydro jetting appointment as part of your overall property maintenance plan.
That way you will avoid the nasty side effects of what can happen when your drains, water pipes, and sewer pipes become clogged. In most cases the clogs will have a negative impact on how the toilets flush, and how the water runs from the faucets and other appliances. However, in a worst-case scenario, the clogs can cause water and or raw sewage to back up within the system. The can lead to water leaks and the potential of raw sewage entering into your property through the toilets and other drains. So how often should you schedule a hydro jetting procedure?
It makes sense to have your plumbing and sewer system flushed out with a hydro jetter at least once per year. However, the correct answer truly depends on the usage of your building. For example, if oil, grease, or other thick chemicals go down the drain on a regular basis, you will need to schedule a hydro jetting service far more often.
