Hydro-jetting is a cleaning technique that entails the use of water at a high pressure and temperature to clean sewer lines, conduits and tanks clogged with debris. Water is let out through a set of nozzles fixed on a rotating head that is connected to a water blaster machine with a tough hose pipe. The hose pipe is long enough to allow the jets to reach the interior of the pipes being washed.The hydro-jet machine can be fitted with electric, gas or diesel engines. It is one of the most effective ways of cleaning sewer lines because the high pressure water rips through the debris that normally clogs in the sewer lines, and the pipes remain cleaner for a long period of time after they have been cleaned.
The technique has gained so much popularity in the recent past, that most plumbing companies are employing this idea. Minerals and roots can also be removed from pipes with the application of this technology.
Advantages of hydro-jetting technique include;
Dirt and grime as well as grease that are clogged in pipes are removed efficiently to allow free flow of sewer.
It is a comprehensive method of cleaning, in that it wipes all the dirt that other means of cleaning cannot remove.
The technique does not damage the pipes unlike other methods of sewer cleaning, since the hydro jet machine is maneuverable.
This is regardless of whether the pipes are new or old. The machine has a pulse flow mechanism that enables the operator to determine areas of thick clog such that he focuses less on sections of the pipe that are weak.
The technique helps to fight bacterial colonies in pipes since the water
being used is at a high temperature, (50-70 degrees Celsius)
and as such it eliminates threats of health hazards.
Since the sewer pipes remain clean for a longer period, it is financially friendly for you will have to clean your sewer lines for a lesser number of times in a period than before.
