Many do not realize the importance of regular drain maintenance, however, a blocked sewer drain is a serious issue that can be detrimental to the entire household. The blockage can prevent waste water from being removed from the home, and is generally caused by a gradual accumulation of debris and foreign material. It can also be caused by a large object lodged in the pipe. Other possible causes for sewer line blockage are tree roots that have grown into the pipe, or a build-up of oils, fats or grease. A blocked sewer line could also be caused by flushing certain objects down the toilet repeatedly, items such as: baby diapers, feminine products, and cat litter, just to name a few.
Regardless of the reason for the blockage, the obstruction needs to be removed in order for your plumbing system to be restored back to normal functionality.
What is Hydro Jetting?
Water Jetting is a strategy we’ve employed in order to free up blockages in order to successfully clear the pipe. It involves a forceful stream of water being propelled through the affected pipe. The force of the water can range from between 3000 and 8000 PSI, and is powerful enough to clear out debris in the form of tree roots, grease, and other foreign items.
In addition, here at A-Plus Priority Plumbers, we will go the next step and insert a small camera into the pipe in order to search for any damage that may also be affecting the performance of the pipe. More information on this method can be found Here.
Why Choose Hydro Jetting?
A major advantage of high-pressure water jetting is that it preserves the integrity of your pipes. Many people turn to chemicals to break up clogs, but this can damage pipes, ultimately requiring them to be repiped over time. Replacing a pipe can be significantly more expensive than water jetting, making the use of chemicals a much riskier solution. By using water jetting to remove clogs, you’ll also notice a reduced chance of another clog forming in the future.
