Have you seen the latest drain-cleaning hack? Online creators are suggesting you use bleach to clear away drain blockages.
Don’t do it!
This seemingly simple solution can cause a whole host of other problems, including creating dangerous fumes in your home. Plus, they’re not even effective at removing clogs. Not to mention chemical cleaning tricks like these aren’t the best for the environment.
If you’re stuck with a clogged or smelly drain, what’s the best solution? You need to try hydro jetting!
Hydro jetting is a simple, eco-friendly technique that fixes nearly all plumbing clogs. Read on to learn how it can help clear your drains.
Have you ever seen how effective a pressure washer is at cleaning houses and patios? Hydro jetting uses the same principle but to a degree suitable to household plumbing.
A professional hydro jetting team connects their jet to your drain and blasts away! The high pressure from the jet clears away all sorts of debris, leaving your pipes clean and clear.
Because hydro jetting is so powerful, it can clear many clogs that other methods can’t. For example, it can clear clogs caused by debris or hair. But these can also be unblocked by simpler methods.
What other techniques can’t do is a clear buildup in the pipe.
Over time, wastewater we pour down the drain can line the pipes with gunk deposits. Grease or mineral buildup around the pipes makes the pipe itself thinner. This leads to slower drainage and can even start to smell.
But this is a tricky fix! You can’t use a plunger to remove the mineral buildup lining your pipes. The only effective solution is using a hydro jet to clear the entire pipe.
As hydro jetting uses a lot of pressure, it has to be done by professionals. Here’s how it will work on the day.
First of all, the plumbing team will visit your home. Using a camera, they will inspect the blocked pipes. This helps them determine how much pressure they can safely use.
Once they know how much PSI the pipes can take, they’ll begin clearing your pipes with the hydro jet. Any loosened debris and other clogs will break up and be washed away down the plumbing system. Then your drains will be good as new!
Hydro jetting is an efficient and permanent solution to blocked drains. The process clears nearly every type of blockage there is. And for many issues, like grease and mineral buildup, hydro jet cleaning is the only solution.
