How Clogged Pipes Happen Over time, a small amount of debris trapped in your sewer line traps more waste as it travels down the pipe. Eventually, it can grow into a large clump that will eventually block the pipe. Hydro Jetting can unclog almost any pipe. You will get warning signs that this may be happening. There will be issues with the drainage from toilets and sinks, and you may notice gurgling sounds, foul smells, or wastewater flowing back through your drains. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s time to perform some maintenance on your sewer lines. Hydro jetting your sewer pipes is the best way to ensure the long life of your plumbing, and stop future problems from developing. Hydro Jetting Advantages A cleaning will clear any build-up of dirt, sand, and silt. Once complete, the process blasts away the debris to leave your pipes free and clear of any clogging and stops build-up in its tracks. Because every speck of debris is jetted away, it takes a long time for any more clogs to develop. In the long run, regular maintenance of your pipes through hydro jetting is a cost-effective solution, because you can avoid costly repairs. Your pipes will be checked for physical damage before jetting, which will give you a good indication as to the condition of your pipes and whether any repairs are needed. Unfortunately, you cannot use hydro jetting on damaged pipes because a powerful jet of water will make the damage much worse. Because hydro jetting takes place inside the pipe and is non-abrasive, there’s no need to dig up your land and risk breaking the sewer line to remove the blockage. The only cleaning agent used in hydro jetting is water applied at high pressure. This feature makes it the most environmentally friendly method for cleaning pipes and removing blockages. Regular maintenance and cleaning up potential clogging problems before they turn into expensive repairs is the best way to save money on your plumbing, and save you from an emergency plumbing call in the middle of the night.
