How Often Should You Jet Out Your Main Plumbing Line?
What is Water Jetting?
High-pressure water jetting, or hydro jetting, is exactly what it sounds like. Water is forced through flexible hoses and into plumbing lines at pressures of up to 4000 pounds per square inch. Forward and reverse jets provide 360-degree coverage, cutting through anything stuck to interior pipe walls or blocking water flow. This includes such things as grease, caked on sewage and even tree roots. The good news is it’s environmentally safe and quite inexpensive.
Who Needs Water Jetting?
Water jetting is commonly used on commercial drain lines, where water use is high. Restaurants, hotels, shopping centers, hospitals and car washes are a few good examples. However, residential customers can also benefit from a good cleaning to prevent backups into the home.
The frequency of water jetting services varies from business to business. A restaurant that deals with a lot of grease may need quarterly jetting, while a small office building may get by with an annual cleaning. The best way to determine how often you need to flush your lines is to have one of our skilled technicians evaluate your business’s wastewater patterns. We can then advise the perfect schedule according to your availability and budget. We also recommend leaving this type of work to trained professionals because misuse of such powerful machinery can damage the pipes and even cause you physical injury.
