What Is Hydrojetting & What Are Its Benefits?
Plumbing professionals are now using an innovative means to clean drains; hydrojetting. Hydrojetting is used by the plumber to force high pressured water through drain pipes in order to dislodge foreign material so that the drains can flow freely. The use of high pressure water should only be used by a plumbing professional that has had the proper training in order to reduce the risk of property damage or personal injury.
A plumber will, very often, use a hydrojetting machine on order to dislodge grease buildup that may occur in kitchen drains. Many times, grease is inadvertently introduced into the kitchen drain system where it accumulates. Instead of using chemicals or mechanical means a plumber may opt for the use of a hydrojetting machine in order to speed up the process, it is safer for the pipes, and it is cleaner for the environment. Cooking grease can be removed effectively, and safely by a professional that is using a hydrojetting machine in a very short time.
Tree roots can become a major issue for drains. They can grow inside of the drains and restrict water flow. This can cause the waste water to back up into the pipes. When this occurs a plumber will typically use a hydrojetting machine in order to free up the roots in the pipe and release the clog. Hydrojetting is the preferred method used by plumbers to clear this kind of drain because it will not damage the inner walls of the already fragile pipes like chemicals or mechanical means will.
Hydrojetting is a great way for a plumber to remove debris from a drain. If a drain is clogged with debris such as gypsum dust from remodeling, soil from flower pots, or any other foreign debris that may have been introduced into the drain system. The high pressure from the hydrojetting machine will loosen up the debris in the drain and will carry the debris through the pipe. This will allow the water to flow freely in the pipe since there will no longer be any obstruction due to the debris. An increasing number of plumbing professionals prefer to use hydrojetting since it is less abrasive on the pipes. This method does not use any caustic or corrosive chemicals so it is good for the environment as well.
