Are you experiencing frequent clogs in your home’s plumbing system? It can be frustrating walking into your bathroom only to find out that your faucet or toilet won’t run like it’s supposed to. Clogged toilets often result in flooding and can’t always be unclogged with a plunger. When this happens, may try the clothes hanger trick only to find out that doesn’t work either! However, these are all just quick fixes to a bigger, more important issue. Your plumbing system needs professional care in order to prevent the recurrence of clogged water and sewer lines. At High Tech Plumbing, we offer the most advanced technology and techniques used for solving this issue and providing you with lasting solutions for your plumbing system, not just a quick fix.
hydro-jetting is one of the processes used to remove obstructions in your plumbing pipes. What many homeowners don’t realize is that clogged pipes aren’t always the result of a single incident. Over years of use, your pipes will have grease and other debris built up on the sides that can be difficult to remove. That’s why it’s important to have a process like hydro-jetting that thoroughly cleans the pipes rather than something like rodding that simple pushes through debris.
How it works
When you hire a qualified plumber to inspect your plumbing system, they may advise the use of a hydro-jet. To use this, the plumber will need to access a cleanout, part of the plumbing system that allows a plumber to easily clean the system. The hydro-jet is a hose that can withstand high-pressure water that’s present in the drain. It’s attached to a tank of water and pushed into the pipes.
The amount of pressure the plumber will use in the water will depend on the severity of the issue and the pipes they are cleaning. Generally, they will pressurize it to around 5,000 psi and around 20 gallons per minute. Hydro-jetting helps to remove debris that has build up like hair, grease, soap residue and more. However, if this process is done by an inexperienced plumber, it may make the clog issue worse. This why it’s important to do a thorough inspection of the system before beginning the hydro-jetting process. This will ensure that there isn’t further damage done to another issue that may be present.
