When traditional methods do not work to unclog difficult blockages, it is time to turn to a method that is perfect for taking care of tough clogs. This method is known as hydrojetting, which involves spraying water under very high pressure into your sewer or drain to clear blockages. The pressure of the water is usually between 1500 to 4000 pounds per minute!
This method is commonly used in residential and commercial situations to clear grease, sand, or sediment that has been building up in your drains for years. First, your drain cleaning specialist will use a drain inspection camera to see exactly what is causing the blockage and where it is located. Then, if your specialist believes that the clog is something that can be cleared by hydrojetting, they will do so. As the tool used for high pressure jetting moves through your drains, it breaks up any blockage that is in the way. Hydrojetting does not involve major construction on your sewer or drains, so it is a very favorable option when choosing a drain clearing method.
It should be noted that hydrojetting does not fix any problems that are caused by broken pipes. This is why it is important for a plumber to use the drain inspection camera to see what is causing the blockage because your pipes can be further damaged by high pressure water if they are weak.
As you can probably imagine, this method can get very messy and can only be completed by an experienced drain cleaner or plumber. If you are looking for hydrojetting in Colorado Springs, contact Leo’s Sewer and Drain! We offer free estimates and will never recommend a service that you do not need!
