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 Hydrojetting Questions Answered
Hydrojetting is a technique 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 nature of the clog. Even blockages caused by invading tree roots aren’t a problem for hydrojetting performed by a qualified practitioner. This technique is reserved for those impossible kinds of drain clogs, and for that, it is quite effective.
Can I Try It Myself?
Since hydrojetting is 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 expertise in using it. Some may try an air compressor or high-powered hose to do the trick, but it won’t be successful in the end. Moving the clog a little won’t help in the long run, and you’ll most likely add a bunch more water to an already clogged drain, making the situation worse.
How to Prevent Serious Drain Clogs
Many of the kinds of clogs that require hydrojetting 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.
