Your licensed and professional plumber from John the Plumber Ottawa may recommend a service called Hydro jetting to clean your drain pipes.
What is it?
Hydro jetting is exactly what it sounds like: sending a powerful jet of water through a pipe to clean and unblock it. No plumber will recommend pouring corrosive drain cleaners down your pipe to loosen a clog, and sometimes the block is so bad that a snake or hand auger will only make a small hole in it or push the blockage farther down the line. Another solution? Hydro jetting.
When you hydro jet
A nozzle is fed into your drain line; high pressure water goes into the system breaking up the blockage. This high pressure stream of water work to efficiently and quickly break down blockages and build up in your drain pipes. They are extremely effective in destroying grease build up, as well as any other sludge that may line the pipe walls.
A plumber will always do a camera inspection beforehand so they can see the state of the pipe before sending such a precision high powered jet of water through there so as not to cause any damage or worsen any existing damage.
Often, tree roots and the like will need to be broken down by an auger before a Hydro jet can be used. Unfortunately it’s inside your pipe means that there is some compromise. A camera inspection will also be done afterwards to ensure that the block is removed and the drains are running efficiently again.
Your Home Will Smell Better
Besides having lovely clear drains after the Hydro jetting process is done, another benefit is less odor; anything that may have been blocking the pipes in the first place is now gone and no smell should be present. You will notice that your sinks and tubs drain much quicker as well. Hydro jetting on a continual basis you will aide in avoiding emergency blockages in the future and will keep you in the know as to the state of your plumbing in your Ottawa home.
