Nobody really likes to think about how much goes down the drain on a daily basis. But no matter how many people are in your home, the drains can clog quickly. The average homeowner feels comfortable putting a lot of waste down the drain, thanks in large part to the advent of the garbage disposal. However, even if you use your garbage disposal properly, you may still have food particles, sludge, and other debris stuck to the lining of your pipes, which could leave you vulnerable to clogs later on.
Whether you want to get rid of a major clog now or prevent drain clogs from happening later on, Rooter Man’s hydro jetting service can help. Call on the services of our skilled plumbers to clear out your drains in Saratoga Springs today, and read on to find out how this technology works.
Hydro jetting involves feeding a thin hose into the drains. This hose connects to the water supply, and its design makes it capable of jetting out water at an extremely high pressure. This pressure is powerful enough to lift any stuck-on “sludge” away from the lining of the pipes, and blast it straight toward the sewer or septic tank. Many plumbers will also check the pipes with a video camera to make sure that the pipes are completely clear.
So can you benefit from hydro jetting in your drains? Yes! If it’s been more than a year since your plumber has cleaned the drains, you may have a lot of grease and debris stuck in the drainpipe which you have no way of knowing about. As this builds up, more and more debris catches on until the clog becomes very large. As it continues to accumulate far along in your sewer line, sewage can actually back up into the sinks and tubs in your home.
If you have a big clog, drain cleaning with hydro jetting is best when used along with a drain snake. A plumber will inspect the pipe with a fiber optic camera in order to find the exact location of the clog. After loosening or removing the blockage, hydro jetting is a good option to make sure that clogs don’t reappear any time soon.
