Sewer Jetting is a method of cleaning, and removing clogs on the inside of drains. It is also called Hydro Jetting, and Water Jetting. This process makes use of high-pressured water to destroy clogs, corrosive materials, and backed up waste products. In New Jersey this is one of the best methods to remove back up. The objective when sewer jetting is to push all of the foreign material out of the pipes and into the sewers for proper removal.
Sewer Jetting typically begins at a drain, which allows direct flow into the sewer line for the entire property. A high pressure-pumping machine channels the water into our pressure gun. Utilizing this setup we are able to clean the gunk, build up, corrosive materials, hair, cleaning products, grease, and other waste from your drains.
In the past the main method of cleaning these large pipe networks was to use cabling equipment (snakes, blades). This worked by using a hand crank and in later years an actual motor to turn the blades as they moved through the drains.
What makes sewer jetting so great is that we no longer need to rely on the old cabling methods that required much higher degrees of labor, luck, and time. In fact hydro jetting in New Jersey can reach over 400 feet deep into your sewer line. As the water propels through that incredible distance it cleans the insides of the pipes.
Although the amount of water used generally depends on the size of the pipes, and drain lines, hydro jetting can use anywhere between 10 and 16 gallons of water in a single minute. This volume of water, combined with pressure levels up to 4000-psi means your system can be maintained with ease.
The biggest myth surrounding sewer jetting is that the pressure of the water could actually cause a pipe to burst. This is not true, as soon as the water leaves the pressure chamber of the equipment the pressure itself is released and you are left with high-speed water instead.
It’s important that you work with a service such as Atlantic HVAC & Plumbing that uses “top of the line” products. Evidence has shown that plumbing services that usage of better quality pressure pumps can produce cleaner pipes, sewers, and drains.
There are such a wide variety of reasons to use sewer hitting its unbelievable. From a purely commercial standpoint that reason is simple. Grease, oil, and food build up is incredibly hard to clear with cables. These waste products are not easily cleared, and can often lead to the need of full on repairs if they are not removed soon enough.
The thing about grease and oil is that they can never fully be removed with cables. The blades on the end of these tools will not produce long-term solutions for getting rid of grease build-ups. When you consider the fact that sewer jetting has a pressure of 4000 psi, it truly puts in perspective how valuable this process is.
In New Jersey you always run the risk of having tree roots disrupt your sewer line. This is a dangerous situation as tree roots that find their way into a cracked sewer can cause massive problems. When you don’t handle the tree roots in your drain lines you are ignoring a constantly growing problem. The roots will warp the shape of the pipes causing leaks and backups in water flow. Thankfully, hydro jetting is a fantastic method of pushing roots directly out of the pipes and back where they came.
