Grime builds up steadily in sewer pipes over time and, if allowed to go unchecked, can create blockages in your pipes. Objects that have been mistakenly flushed down the toilet and tree roots that have broken into the pipeline are other common causes of sewer pipe blockages. Having your sewer system cleaned every one to three years, depending on the size and habits of your household, prevents blockages from occurring.
Hot-pressure sewer jets are a highly effective method of cleaning sewer systems. A sewer jet is a long hose that uses high volumes of water to loosen solidified debris from the inside of pipes and wash it through the system. Various attachments allow the jet to reach and eliminate roots, blockages, and emulsified grease and soaps from every drain and pipe. Areas of your sewage system that benefit from hot-pressure sewer jet cleaning include:
- Culvert Drains
- Curb Drain Lines
- Downspout Drains
- Driveway Drains
- Field Drain Tiles
- Footer Drain Tiles
- Leach Field Drain Lines
- Sanitary Main Sewer
- Storm Main Sewer
- Yard Drains
If you can’t remember the last time your building’s sewer system was cleaned, chances are it’s due! Schedule an appointment or learn more about our hot-pressure jet sewer drain cleaning services by giving us a call at 330-733-3711.
Does jetting a sewer line work?
Hydro jetting is the most powerful way to remove a sewer blockage. It’s used when inferior techniques like chemicals and augers have failed. Mechanical methods might break up blockages and move them further down your pipes but rarely remove them altogether. For that reason, augured blockages tend to return soon after treatment. In contrast, hydro jetting annihilates blockages. Your lines will be 100% clear. You’re unlikely to experience a second blockage after hydro jetting if you’ve removed the cause.
How many PSI is a jetter?
Hydro jetters aren’t all made alike. They come in various specifications, but severe clogs need a product with at least 3,500 to 4,000 psi. Larger drains will need a psi of over 4,000. Flow is equally important to the efficacy of your equipment, so look for a rating of 6 to 9 gallons a minute.
Can I do hydro jetting myself?
Retail hydro jetting equipment can set you back a good bit of money. But shopping in the DIY sphere won’t yield the specifications your equipment needs to do its job. A commercial hydro jet will achieve the powerful results required to shift tough sewer blockages, but wielding such potent equipment is dangerous. The specialized hose shoots water into your pipes at immense pressure, so it’s best deferred to a professional plumber.
Will a sewer jetter cut roots?
Hydro jets are the preferred equipment for tree root removal. They can break the entire structure down and flush the debris through your pipes. While motorized augers can do a relatively effective job of removing roots, they can cause mechanical damage to your pipes. Their efficacy rates are inferior to those of hydro jetting, and they do a shoddy job of moving debris to the exterior of your pipes.
Is sewer jetting bad for your lines?
Hydro jetting is tough on blockages but entirely safe for your pipes, provided it’s handled by a licensed professional. The highest psi specifications won’t cut into an ordinary pipe. This method is far safer than a metal snake for steel, copper, and PVC lines. If your sewer infrastructure is corroded, severely damaged, or made from clay, hydro jetting might not be a viable solution, mainly if your property relies on its own septic system.
