FAQs: Hydro Jetting
Frequently Asked Questions About Hydro Jetting
What Is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is a plumbing technique that uses high-pressure water jets to remove clogs, debris, and build-up in a plumbing system or sewer line. Hydro jetting is non-invasive and allows plumbing technicians to clear clogs without disrupting the property.
How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
A plumbing technician will create an access point in the plumbing system and use a special piece of equipment called a jetter. The jetter is made up of a water tank, nozzle, and a pressurizing device. After identifying the source of the clog in your plumbing system, our plumbing technicians at Western Rooter will use the jetter to spray a high-pressure water stream through your plumbing system. When this spray accesses the affected pipes, the impact of the water will break away the clog, debris, and build-up in the pipeline.
What Makes Hydro Jetting Efficient?
Hydro jetting is an efficient plumbing solution because it’s capable of removing clogs, debris, and other build-ups in a plumbing system quickly and accurately. What’s more, hydro jetting is able to reach clogs that are further down the pipeline, which reduces the amount of time it takes to remove those clogs. It also prevents the need for digging up the yard or property to access the pipelines.
Is Hydro Jetting Ideal for Clogs?
Yes, hydro jetting is ideal for clogs and other pipeline build-ups. This is because hydro jetting can clear several clogs at once throughout the pipeline, even those that may not have been spotted initially during an inspection. Compare this to other plumbing solutions where the clog may only be partially removed or there’s more than one clog further down in the pipeline. With hydro jetting’s high-pressure water stream, you can feel confident knowing a clog has been completely removed from your pipeline.
