Understanding Hydro Line Jetting Services

When clearing pipes and cleaning equipment, there’s only so much cleaning products and plungers can do. For extra tough and complex jobs, hydro line jetting services may be in order. Hydro line jetting is commonly the next step when a pipe or sewage line can’t be cleared of roots, debris, grease, scale, and other buildup with a plumber’s snake. Sometimes, the power of high-pressure water is necessary. That’s not the only way we use hydro line jetting! Here’s a brief guide to understanding hydro line jetting services and how they get things flowing.

Checking It Out

Hydro line jetting is a process. Before breaking out the equipment, a plumber must conduct a thorough inspection of the works. Most plumbing companies have video equipment that plumbers lower into the pipeline to see the extent of the blockage and what it might contain. The plumber will also note the condition of the pipes. Some systems, especially old and weakened ones, may not be able to take the pressure—literally. Pipes that can’t be hydro jetted require more intensive snaking and augers to bust up the blockage. The plumber may recommend replacing the old pipes if they’re in a particularly bad state.

Under Pressure

If the plumber decides hydro jetting is in order, the next steps are straightforward. They drop the hose into the pipe and begin. This is no ordinary garden hose, of course. Hydro jetting involves pressures of 35,000 PSI or more, which is why the pipes must be in good shape so they don’t receive further damage under the hose’s intensive barrage. Once broken up and disrupted, the blockage can be flushed through the system. This leaves the pipes cleaner and freer than before!

Other Uses

While hydro jetting is a common technique for clearing drains, sewer lines, and other pipe systems, it’s also great for cleaning tools and large-scale equipment. An industrial disposal service can use that extra power to remove rust, residue, scaling, grease, grime, and grit without cleaners or solvents. Hydro jetting can cover large surfaces and clean out tight and compact spaces like pipes. This process can prevent future corrosion. It’s great for most industrial equipment, but hydro jetting is not ideal for old and corroding equipment.
