Did you know that blockages in the plumbing system or sewer lines at your commercial or industrial property can lead to clogged drains? Worse yet, they can contaminate the water supply. Pipe jetting is the solution. If you are starting to notice that there are chronic clogs in the plumbing system at a building that you own or manage, it is time to contact a professional that specializes in clog removal. Clogged drains and issues with the water pressure may be an indication that there is a major issue with the plumbing and or sewer system.
That being stated, more often than not, a clog is just a clog and can easily be removed with pipe jetting. However, if the clog or clogs are not removed in a timely manner, it will end up leading to major issues in the near future. If you think that slow draining drains or low water pressure is annoying, just imagine raw sewage backing up through the pipes and into the property through the toilets and sinks. That is a dangerous disaster that will shut down the property until the problem is fixed and the mess is properly cleaned.
Clogs can also cause the pipes to crack, which leads to leaks that are expensive to repair. In severe cases, the pipes will burst and need to be completely replaced. That is why it is so important to hire a pipe jetting expert at the first sign of clogged pipes and or drains. So what exactly is pipe jetting and how does it work? Pipe jetting is the process of utilizing highly pressurized water in order to clean the interior surfaces of plumbing and sewer pipes. The water effectively removes grease, debris, and the buildup of scales that form within the walls of the pipes.
The process is powerful enough to destroy and remove the clogs, but delicate enough that it does not cause any damage to the pipes. The pipe jetting technician will use a clean-out, which is an area of the plumbing system that provides access to pipes, and insert a special hose and customized nozzle that is connected to a water tank. A pressurizing machine pressurizes the water from the tank. The pressurized water is sprayed through the hose and into the plumbing pipes.
The technician will set the correct amount of water pressure based on the situation at hand. That includes the severity of the clog in relation to the age and strength of the plumbing pipes. The pipe jetting process of removing clogs works with gravity. Plumbing systems typically utilize gravity in order to pull wastewater out of the property and into the sewage system. In essence, the pipe jetting tool works from the bottom up. For example, the hose and nozzle are inserted into the downstream part of the plumbing system, moves upstream, and works their way up through the plumbing system. The pressurized water cleans the pipes, and the debris that is displaced moves down the system where it exits into the sewer system.
