In one way or another, most businesses rely on having open and functioning pipes that are free of debris. If your business is struggling with poor drainage or stopped pipes, line jetting may be the most efficient solution for you.
What Is Line Jetting
Jetting sewer lines is the process of unclogging and cleaning pipes with pressurized water. Unlike with traditional plumbing methods that use an auger or snake, line jetting cuts through and eliminates the debris rather than only opening a hole or removing parts of the problem.
How Does It Work
When a person is jetting sewer lines, they need to use a hose and a specialized nozzle that focuses the water’s power. Different nozzles are selected based on the diameter of the pipe in question and water pressure “can reach up to 60,000 psi.” Tree roots are often the cause of prolonged drainage issues, and this sort of water pressure can cut through them or push them out with ease.
It is important that only professionals undertake the clearing process. To begin, the expert will inspect the clogged pipe with a small camera. This will allow them to see exactly where the clog is located, how significant it is, and if it has caused damage nearby. From there, the professional will begin jetting the sewer lines by using the pressurized water to clear out the problem area.
Why Use Line Jetting Over Other Methods
When done properly, this method clears out much more of the clog than either an auger or snake would. Because it removes the clog as well as other sludge in nearby areas of the pipe, line jetting prevents future problems better than traditional methods do.
Depending on how much stress your pipes endure, quarterly or even monthly cleanings may be in order. For more information on line jetting or other industrial services, reach out the waste management professionals at Clean Management today.
