One of the main advantages of hiring an experienced plumber is that they can use hydro jetting and other tools to fix plumbing problems you otherwise wouldn’t be able to fix yourself. When problems occur in our water and sewer lines that are too far down to reach with average tools, a licensed plumber can take care of the problem specialized tools that get the job done and extend the life of your pipes.
Simply put, hydro jetting is when an experienced plumber uses a powerful hose to clear blockages that are otherwise difficult to reach. Snaking or using chemicals may not solve the problem or at best will provide a momentary solution. However, these high-powered jets are capable of clearing out any blockages including tree roots.
This tool would not be used to handle simple clogs in your drain. It’s for heavy-duty clogs found deep in the plumbing. These blockages are usually caused by grease, debris, sediment and even tree roots. Over a period of time, even the smallest formation of sediments can lead to serious blockages. If you notice blockages of any kind you want to make sure they are inspected before any major attempts at fixing them are attempting.
In some cases, the jetting is also used for regular maintenance of plumbing systems. Rather than wait for clogs, if your system is over five years old it may be wise to do annual maintenance. The water pressure will keep the lines clear of debris and sediment and only needs to be done once a year.
Even if you can gain access to a high-pressure tool like this, it’s best to leave hydro jetting to a licensed plumber. The reason is because they will be able to identify the cause of the problem and determine if this is the best course of action to take.
The water pressure is so high that it can also damage pipes if used improperly. Before it is used, a plumber will inspect the pipes with a camera to make sure that they are in good condition and can withstand the powerful blasts of the jet. If not, then the water pressure will cause larger leaks and cracks, further complicating repair work.
