Get a Licensed Missouri Plumber to Engage in HydroJetting your Blocked Pipes
Plumbers 911 Has Certified Technicians Available 24/7
If you have to have your pipes cleaned more frequently than you feel should be necessary, it’s possible that you have some buildup in your lines that cannot be cleaned out by mechanical means or by using chemical drain cleaners
. For example, sand, silt, and even some types of roots can get into your lines and remain there even when an auger (or “snake”) is passed through the pipes. These materials will impact the flow of fluids through your lines, causing other materials to more quickly build up and form clots, which can be messy to deal with and frustrating to clean out over and over.
If this is your situation, you may need to have your lines hydro jetted by a licensed professional. Hydro jetting is a technologically-advanced method of clearing out your lines that removes detritus other methods cannot touch. Call Plumbers 911 at (816) 326-8643 and we will be happy to send someone out to your home to inspect the lines and, if necessary, clean them by hydro jetting your sewer lines.
A Licensed Missouri Professional Can Clear Your Pipes by Using Hydro Jet Technology
Hydro jetting equipment works by passing a tube with a jetting tool on the front of it down your pipes. Water comes out of the jetting tool at pressures of up to 4,000 psi. This high-powered jet of water
obliterates stubborn clogs of:
- Small plant roots
- And other materials.
The jetting tool shoots water out of the front as well as reverse water jets what work to propel the tool down the pipes. The reverse water jets are particularly useful in breaking up stubborn clogs when the entire tool is pulled backward while the jets are running.
Hydrojetting Vs. Snaking
In the debate of hydro jetting vs snaking
, hydro jetting wins out every time. A snake works well to break up clogs that are completely clogging a pipe, but it tends to miss clogs that are stuck to the wall of the pipe and only cut flow by 1/3 or less; further, when a snake breaks a clog up, it tends to leave the pieces of the clogs sitting in the pipe. Frequently these pieces simply begin collecting more debris and eventually grow into new clogs. This is why using a snake is generally only a short-term solution at best.
Secondly, a snake will not remove deposits of sand or other similar sediment. It will pass through or over the sand, perhaps stirring it up but not removing it. In contrast a hydro jet tool will blast the sand down the pipes and away from your residence, completely removing the material and preventing it from growing into a new clog.
It is Important to Have a Certified Missouri Technician Operating the Hydro Jetting Equipment
Because the hydro jet tool operates under such high pressure, it is very important that you have a highly-trained professional conduct the cleaning. The velocity of the water can rupture pipes which are already weakened or damaged, leading to the need for expensive repairs.
To counter this, a properly-performed hydro jet procedure will require the use of cameras before the hydro jet tool is ever inserted into the pipes. A professional with a practiced eye will run a camera through your pipes, inspecting them carefully to determine whether any part of the pipe is going to be susceptible to damage from the high-pressured water. It is easy for an amateur to skip this part or to miss signs of damaged or weakened pipes. The results can be disastrous: the hydro jet tool can easily puncture pipes in these problem areas, and then you will have to have the line dug up and replaced at a cost of thousands of dollars.
For this reason it is key that you only allow a properly trained and licensed professional engage in any sort of hydro jet cleaning. You simply cannot afford to do otherwise, given what is at stake if an error is made.
