In this article, Oak Plumbing, a trusted provider of quality plumbing services, shares more information on hydro jetting.
What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is a process that utilizes a high-pressure flow of water to remove dirt, grease and other debris that have built up on the pipe walls. Basically, it’s a comprehensive cleaning method that gets rid of blockages to ensure your plumbing system functions properly. Hydro jetting can also be used to solve tree root infiltration, as well as scale and mineral buildup in the sewer drains.
How Does It Work?
Plumbing experts need to visually inspect the plumbing system to know the cause of the problem. They use a video camera to check if there’s pipe damage or any other issue that might complicate the situation. If there’s none, plumbers will then access a cleanout and insert a hose connected to a water tank. They use a special machine to pressurize water from this tank, typically at 5,000 PSI or more.
Inserted into the downstream portion of the plumbing system, the hydro jetting tool is set to work from the bottom up through the plumbing system. As the high-pressure water cleans the pipes, the debris buildup dislodges and gravity moves it down, clearing the blockage in the plumbing system.
