If you ever have the misfortune to encounter a drain clog that simply won’t budge no matter what you do, a heavy-duty professional solution may be required. There are times when a drain becomes packed with years’ worth of sludge caused by hair, food, paper products or soap, and it needs a special technique to blast through everything that stands in its way. In the professional plumbing world, the technique is called hydrojetting.
Your Hydro Jet Questions Answered
A Hydro Jet is a machine that uses water to power through almost any type of drain clog. The water is sprayed into the drain under high pressure, and can reach up to 4,000 psi, depending on the power rating of the machine in question. Even blockages caused by invading tree roots aren’t a problem for a good hydro jet service performed by an experienced plumber with ample drain cleaning training. Hydro Jet services are reserved for the most difficult of drain clogs, and for that, it is quite effective.
Should I try to Hydro Jet Myself?
Since hydro jet services are part of an overall solution for seriously clogged drains, the DIY approach isn’t usually warranted. The average homeowner doesn’t have the necessary equipment, and doesn’t have the necessary expertise. Some have tried an air compressor or high-powered hose to do the trick, but typically these methods have little to no success. In some cases the clog may move a little but it won’t help solve the issue in the long run. If you attempt to perform a hydro jet service yourself you’ll most likely add a bunch more water to an already clogged drain, only making the situation worse. So call our expert hydro jet technicians at Jennings Plumbing Services, located in North Dallas.
How to Prevent Serious Drain Clogs
Many of the kinds of clogs that require a hydro jet as a solution are created over months or even years. It’s just a slow buildup of materials like cooking grease, hair, food particles and paper products that don’t move through the system and gradually harden on the insides of the pipes. To prevent this from happening, start being more diligent about what goes down the drains in your home. It may not matter to you now because the result takes time, but you’ll be doing yourself a big favor for the future if you monitor the situation now.
