When you hear of hydro-jetting, you may think of a high-tech device used in the Jetsons. However, this assumption does not match up. Hydro-jetting is actually a method used to clean your pipes and plumbing. Because of its effectiveness, it can appear quite advanced. When a plumber cleans your pipes using the hydro-jetting method, he or she blasts pressurized water through your plumbing to clean dirt and build up. They usually first inspect the pipes with a video to diagnose where the clog and dirt is and then they clear it with water. There are many advantages of this procedure.
Thoroughly Cleans Pipes
Hydro-jetting offers a comprehensive cleaning of your plumbing. The system uses, on average, 4000 psi. That level of pressure and the amount of water is sure to tackle even the smallest of dust particles. It clears out any obstructions, clogs, or build up, allowing the water to run smoothly after.
Our pipes take a lot of beating throughout the year. Particles such as sand, grease, mud, soap, and food all pass through the plumbing at any given moment. These all can leave behind residue, that if not properly cleaned, can cause build up and blockage. With hydro-jetting, you can clear this residue effectively and for a long time.
Offers More Mobility
Pipes in homes, especially older homes, can be precarious and unstable. You do not want to have to open pipes to clean them. That can cause extensive damage and costly repairs. Because the water hose enters directly into the pipes, you can wash plumbing in the trickiest of places.
Because of their constant use, your pipes can harbor many strains of bacteria. This can cause health issues, odd odors, and general unpleasantness. Hydro-jetting clears out the bacteria, along with the other dirt and grime.
Hydro-jetting is a cost-effective alternative to other pipe cleaning methods. Because the pressurized water clears out the plumbing so thoroughly, you do not have to clean it as often. It is also less expensive than having to open the pipes for a wash.
Because of the powerful pressure of water through the pipes, it is more difficult for debris and grime to build up. This means that you need to clean your pipes less often and that they will work more effectively for a longer period.
