Clear Out Clogged Pipes with Hydro Jetting

Not only can slow drains and recurring clogs lead to sewer backups, but these plumbing problems may also cause your water source to become contaminated. If you regularly have to deal with the frustration of clogged pipes, hydro jetting may be a good option for your home. Hydro jetting is a non-invasive plumbing process that uses pressurized water to remove clogs from pipes. Similar to pressure washing the inside of your pipes, hydro jetting effectively eliminates clogs, debris, and buildup within the plumbing system. 

To utilize this process, plumbers pick a preferred entry point. They then slide a hose in and start pumping water. Hydro jetting processes are able to shoot approximately 20 gallons of water each minute, or 5,000 psi. The pressurized water forces the blockage down into the sewer system. Hydro jetting is a safe, effective method of eliminating buildup in plumbing systems. In Chino, CA, JIG PLUMBING offers hydro jetting and other plumbing repair services.

When is hydro jetting necessary?

Plumbers may choose to use hydro jetting if a plumbing system continually clogs. The inside of pipes often accumulates grease, debris, scale, and minerals, all of which reduce the amount of usable pipe through which waste can flow. If your pipes are highly obstructed, you’ll often have slow drainage and recurring leaks. Left unattended, obstructed pipes can result in sewer backups.

A professional plumber can use video camera equipment to assess the state of your plumbing system and determine if hydro jetting is necessary or useful. Older pipes, for example, are not good hydro jetting candidates, as they may not be able to withstand the high pressure without cracking. And if sewer lines are already collapsed or broken, hydro jetting won’t help either.

Enjoy the Benefits of Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is a highly effective solution that quickly clears clogs. Unlike snaking, hydro jetting is able to eliminate scum and buildup off the entire pipe and not just the center. It’s also an eco-friendly option. Since it uses plain water with no harsh chemicals, home and business owners can feel good knowing that they’re not introducing hazardous chemicals into the soil or groundwater.
