What is hydrojetting?
Hydrojetting is the process of using a high-pressured flow of water to scour the interior surfaces of the plumbing pipes, removing scale, grease and other debris that's built up inside the pipe walls over time. As opposed to rodding, where a plumber uses a tool to power a hole through the build-up, hydrojetting achieves a comprehensive cleaning of the pipes.
An inside look at how it works?
Accessing a cleanout, an area of the plumbing system that allows for easy access to the pipes, we inserts a hose that's connected to a tank of water. The hose can withstand the high-pressured water that's sent into the pipes, and a specialized machine pressurizes water from the tank.
The process of removing build-up involves working with gravity. The majority of home plumbing systems use gravity to pull wastewater out of the home and into the local sewer system. The hydrojetting tool works from the bottom up. Inserted into the downstream portion of the system, it moves upstream, working its way up through the system. As the water scours the pipes, the debris that's dislodged then moves down, with gravity, safely flushing the debris out of the system.
Getting the job done.
The process of hydrojetting works to resolve a number of common plumbing problems. It successfully removes debris that accumulates in the home's plumbing pipes due to hair, soap residue, grease and more. In addition, it resolves tree root infiltration and mineral and scale buildup in the sewer drains.
