Hydro jet cleaning is a method used whereby using a high pressure hose with a special nozzle and a pressure machine to extract any build up. The more tightly clogged the drain or pipe might be the high the pressure used to push grease, mineral build-up, hair and other debris through. If high enough pressure is used it’ll also break up the roots down to clear the passage way. Something to beware of is if the pipes are already weak or damaged hydro jetting will only intensify your problem. A camera inspection can typically be used to determine if the pipes are damaged or weak at all. We touch on the benefits and why California Plumbing SD uses camera inspection HERE.
This method does not only clear the build up but it also thoroughly cleans the pipe. It is recommended to have your pipes hydro jetted every 18-24 months to prevent any build up and to keep your pipes clean and clear! If you’re suspecting that roots might be getting into your pipes, your drains or pipes are clogging, your getting slow drains, or smelling sewer odors in your water or pipes, call California Plumbing SD to have one of our professionals come help you!
