What is Jet Cleaning?
Posted by: Jenny, on Thursday 18th August 2016
Hydro Jet cleaning is the modern, efficient way to deal with stubborn drain clogs and pipe obstructions, and might just be the best way to deal with problems in your home or place of business.
A hydro jet is a high-pressure hose with a nozzle connected to a pressurizing machine. This produces a powerful stream that can clear a drain very effectively. The process is done through a cleanout, an opening into the pipe. Water is forced at a high speed through the pipe, pushing through any build-up or other debris that is blocking the pipe. Jet cleaning is done at pressures high enough that it can even clear out some tree roots! Using water to break up obstructions within pipes is also safer for the environment and your health than using harsh chemicals to dissolve clogs. For all of these reasons, Hydro Jet cleaning is often the tool of choice for many difficult blockages, because it not only removes them - the high pressure water stream actually cleans out the inside of your pipes, thus keeping your pipes clear for longer.
Hydro jetting may not be appropriate for your pipes if they are older or damaged.
