Hydro Jetting 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 buildup, Hydro Jetting achieves a comprehensive cleaning of the pipes.
How it Works
Accessing a cleanout, an area of the plumbing system that allows a specialist to easily gain access to the pipes, the technician 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 technician has the expertise to deliver the right water pressure for the problem at hand, which varies depending on the condition of the pipes. In general, a team member may pressurize the water up to a 3,000 psi, or more, and deliver as many as 18 gallons of water per minute.
The process of removing buildup 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 Hydro Jetting 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 Hydro Jetting 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.
