When experiencing a blockage in your main sewer line, you’ll most likely need high-pressure cleaning. Sewer jetting uses high-pressure water streams through special nozzles to clean out your sewer and drain lines. Many materials can cause your sewer line to clog. These include, but are not limited to:
- fats, oils, grease
- sludge and dirt
- stubborn tree roots
While many tools can tackle clogging jobs, high-pressure cleaning is one of the easiest and safest methods. While the technique was developed relatively, it will definitely be around to stay.
How does it work?
A high-pressure sewer jetter delivers a powerful stream of water directly into your main pipeline. The water flowing through the nozzle is controlled and removes tough obstructions. They typically operate with a pressure of 4,000 PSI and can flow up to 120 gallons per minute. In order to be fully effective, plumbers clean from the lower end against the force of gravity. A skilled technician can clean your main sewer line regardless of the size and makeup of the blockage. That’s right, no clog is too big to handle!
High-pressure cleaning will make your sewer line “like new again!”
While things like drain cleaners and plungers provide temporary fixes, water-jetting provides a long-lasting solution. In fact, most homeowners require this service about once every five years. Before any service is done, a technician will be able to provide a video inspection of your sewer line. The machines can reach up to 500 feet and can dislodge any clog. The stream completely fills the sewer line and will clear not only the middle of the pipe, but the walls as well. There are various nozzles sizes and pressures, so our plumbers are able to adapt to the specific needs of your home. We have technicians on-call 24 hours a day to service you.
