Hydro Jet Cleaning for Clogged Pipes
Sewer pipes often get clogged causing bad odor, breeding of insects and unsanitary conditions, which is why hydrojet cleaning is a great option. It may also lead to leakage of sewage, thus creating nuisance to the residents and the public. Drains and Sewer pipes may get damaged and also deteriorate over time due to the formation of rust, which requires immediate repairing and replacement. Before such sewage problems occur, video inspection is undertaken that allows a sewer camera to navigate easily through the darkness of the pipes. This enables the plumbers to see the entire pipe and and identify any potential issues or obstructions. It is very easy to detect minute cracks, blocks and leakages in sewer pipes by monitoring through surveillance cameras.
What Is Hydrojet Cleaning?
The hydro jet is a hose connected to a powerful nozzle, which pushes out large amounts of water at very high pressure. The amount of pressure can sometimes reach around 35,000psi, which is very powerful. The nozzle is not led into the drain, but is simply pushed through, as it is usually self-propelled. Some older hydrojets may have a metal pole which is used to keep the nozzle pointed in the right direction, but apart from that, it is a relatively simple task. After the nozzle is put into the drain, it is pushed down as far as necessary, and then the water is forced through the pipe.
Why Use Hydrojet Cleaning?
Rather than the rather haphazard method of cleaning which is the traditional sewage cleaning method, the hydrojet has two great benefits. Firstly, it is much more powerful that the old method, meaning that you will not just clear away a few tree roots in the near vicinity, but you will get them all. The force of the water also cleans off all of the walls of the pipes, meaning that the drain is much cleaner and less likely to be blocked in the future.
