If you’ve experienced clogs in your plumbing system, you may have heard the term “hydro jetting” mentioned as a possible solution. The process is highly effective, though it takes professional training and equipment to properly work. Here in Westwood, hydro jetting can be applied to a wide variety of clogs and back-ups. But how does hydro jetting work? And more importantly, why is it preferable to store-bought cleansers and similar solutions?
The process entails a high-pressure hose, fitted to your plumbing, which sends a blast of water down the pipe. The water is sent down in pulses, which thoroughly scours the pipe and breaks up any clogs or blockages that it may encounter. The process requires training because of the extreme high pressure of the water. It has to be directed properly and the hose must be fitted into the pipe firmly regardless of its size or composition. Otherwise, the water could damage your kitchen or even cause you harm.
Having said that, a trained plumber can operate the system safely, and its effectiveness cannot be denied. Hydro jetting can scour even the most stubborn clog clean. Moreover, it cleans the entire pipe, not just the spot of the clog. That means it can halt future clogs before they begin, giving you a great deal of value for the money. Best of all, because it’s only water, it won’t cause any caustic reactions or burn your skin if you spill it. And the pipes themselves are left completely untouched: clean and ready to be used for whatever you need.
Hydro jetting might not be the best solution for the most minor clogs, but if you’re experiencing a stubborn back-up and aren’t sure how best to deal with it, it can be a godsend.
