Drain & Sewer Line Hydrojetting Services
Will my drain pipes withstand the hydrojetting process? Won’t it cause damage to my pipes? We get this question often because it is one of the biggest misconceptions that worry homeowners.
When utilizing the process of hydrojetting, the pipes are not pressurized with water. When the water leaves the high pressurized nozzle it is no longer under pressure, rather the water is forced through the pipes at a very high rate of speed.
The actual cleaning process of the pipe is a result of the water rushing through them at this accelerated speed that is not possible to achieve with an ordinary garden hose.
What does the force of the water from hydrojetting accomplish? The specialized nozzle that is connected to the hydrojetting machine is usually inserted into a drain cleanout entry point and the powerful stream of water forces grease, hair, soap scum and water minerals through the drain. This technique is incredibly successful as it will break up tree roots in most cases, leaving your pipes free from debris and flowing free. A small camera is put into the drain both before and after this hydrojetting process and the results are dramatic!
When Should Hydrojetting be utilized for Drain Clogs?
When considering hydrojetting in Fort Worth it is important to know what type of drain clog you are experiencing. Did one of the children put a toy down the toilet? In most cases a plumbing snake would be employed for a minor clog like this whereas, hydrojetting solutions are best when a plumbing snake fails to remove the clog.
Heavy sludge and grease, combined with hard water minerals and deposits build up overtime and can become a solid mass that won’t budge with conventional methods like plunging and snaking. Tree roots are exceptionally stubborn and will need broken up in order to move them on through your pipes. You don’t want a temporary solution – you want it taken care of the first time, properly. That’s where your trained plumbing professionals in Fort Worth come to the rescue. We can fix it!
How Does Hydrojetting Differ From Drain Snaking and Cabling?
When a plumber inserts a cable or drain snake the action typically punches a hole in the blockage so the drain flows again. Hydrojetting pushes everything through cleaning out your pipes to reclaim the entire inside diameter of your drain line. The extremely effective process of pressurizing water and shooting it through your pipes has been used in the oil field industry for years and has become popular and extremely reliable for Fort Worth residential and commercial plumbing customers.
Have you ever notice how a sidewalk or part of a driveway begins to buckle and hump up causing distortion and dangerous navigation? That is caused by tree root intrusion under these concrete areas. Because your sewer and drain pipes are running beneath the ground you can imagine the twisting and kinking that is going on with your system. This buckling can completely disrupt the drain pipe system causing joints to separate and tree roots to invade. Roots are attracted to water and can begin stretching out within your pipes as well as around them completely restricting the flow of waste passing through to your septic or municipal sewer. It will be very expensive to repair any section of drain pipe because they have cracked or collapsed. The deeper the pipes the more expensive it will be so scheduling yearly drain pipe cleaning with your Fort Worth hydrojetting company makes terrific sense.
Did you know that drain & sewer jetting is more effective at Longer Distances?
It is one of the most amazing things about how hydrojetting technology works. Most machines have the capacity to reach up to 500 feet and deliver the same cleaning effect and water speed at this great distance. A Cable machine (industrial snaking) is restricted to a fixed amount of power and is more effective at shorter distances. The machine’s torque is absorbed into the cable and loses its ability to function at longer intervals. The quality of your Fort Worth hydrojetting technology is consistent whether the clog is 50 feet into the drain or near the street sometimes 300 – 500 feet from the house.
Different drain and sewer problems require a qualified trained Fort Worth professional to determine the appropriate process to unclog, repair or possibly replace a section of problem drain line or an entire drain system depending on the severity of the problem. The hydrojetting process uses a large machine to create a flow of high pressure water that literally cuts through roots on its path or any kind of sludge and heavy buildup in the pipes. In the most extreme cases trenchless sewer repair or a conventional dirt removal technique may be recommended or required but with the high-pressured water pipe cleaning process the sewer repair is accomplished by actually replacing the old sewer line without ever having to dig up your yard.[/span12]
