Hydro jetting is one of many specific pipe cleaning services that a qualified plumbing company can provide. Although hydro jetting involves more specialized equipment than typical drain cleaning methods, it is a popular service that can resolve nearly any drain blockage or clogged pipe.
Hydro jetting services from Delta Plumbing & Mechanical can eliminate clogs and ensure that your plumbing lines provide fresh, clean water to your home.
What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is a specific type of plumbing service involving a high-pressure water jet (4,000 to 5,000 psi). The purpose of hydro jetting is to clear a clogged drain line or pipe, forcing the stuck debris out of your house’s piping network.
Unlike older, more traditional drain clearing methods such as rodding, jetting is a non-invasive procedure; it does not require the technician to drill a hole through your piping
How a Hydro Jetting Service Works
Before starting the jetting procedure, a Delta Plumbing & Mechanical licensed professional always conducts a video camera inspection of your piping to determine whether jetting is viable.
If the inspection reveals weak or broken piping, the high-pressure flow of a water jetting service may damage them further, and your plumber may recommend a different drain cleaning method.
If your piping passes inspection, the plumbing contractor sets up the water jetting system, consisting of a machine, a water tank, a flexible hose, and a special multi-directional nozzle. The contractor then inserts the nozzle down the affected drain or pipe, activating the high-pressure water flow.
As the forward-facing nozzle sends pressurized water travels at high speed through your pipes, it breaks down and forces debris buildup off your pipe wall. The nozzle also propels high-pressure water rearwards as it travels, cleaning the pipe as the nozzle travels. Hydro jetting is a double drain service, clearing clogs and cleaning pipes simultaneously.
When to Call a Licensed Professional For Jetting
You should call a professional plumbing service if your pipes experience heavy and moderate clogs and traditional solutions, such as chemical solutions or homemade drain cleaners, have not helped.
Do not rely on DIY or unlicensed individuals offering a sewer jetting service in Michigan; it is not only illegal to do plumbing work without a license, but these individuals cannot guarantee quality work.
Only a licensed plumbing company is qualified to conduct a proper pipe and drain inspection and determine whether water jetting is suitable instead of alternative methods, such as drain snaking.
If your Delta Plumbing & Mechanical plumbing contractor has determined that your pipes can safely handle it, hydro jetting is an effective drain cleaning service that can easily remove the following materials:
- Hair clogs
- Tree roots
- Food particles
- Mineral buildup
- Most miscellaneous fouling
