How Is It Connected?
Before we explain hydro jetting let’s talk about the pipes in your home. Ever wondered how all your plumbing drains are connected in your house? If you have a typical two-story home in Oshawa and you were to expose all the plumbing, you would see that all your drains interconnect and eventually all join up into one long vertical stack in your basement. That main stack connects out to the main sewer line, which eventually connects to the city sewer. As you may guess, any block in that line can and cause an enormous inconvenience.
Your Main Drain
A block in your main drain leaving your Oshawa house can cause you to have an inability to flush any waste out of your house. Toilets don’t flush, bath water doesn’t drain and kitchens don’t let water down. It is a recipe for disaster! Enter a new(ish) player on the scene. Residential hydro jetting. For all intents and purposes, hydro jetting is simply a pressurized jet of water sent to clean out your pipes. It’s done with a small flexible hose, similar to a snake, that threads through your sewer line on your property. This hose has a special head that sprays water all around in a 360-degree pattern. The water is under pressure so it jets out forcibly.
Hydro Jetting is Safer For Your Pipes
The great thing about hydro jetting in Oshawa is that somewhat friendlier to your pipes. It has enough pressure and power to loosen up debris and junk that is lodged in your pipes by force of water pressure but doesn’t generally do any damage to the pipes. Your plumber will always recommend a camera inspection to be done first. The main reason for this is that we do not want to do any more damage to the pipes. Without a camera inspection, you do run the risk of making a small break or crack in a pipe larger because of the sheer power of the hydro jetter. Keeping your Oshawa sewer line clean and free of issues with a professional hydro jetting service will minimize the risk of your main sewer line ever backing up and you ever having any issues in your house.
Find a Licensed Professional Plumber
Hydro jetting is absolutely not to be done by an amateur and you will need a licensed plumber to carry this out for you. Hydro jetting can also be done in small commercial areas that’s if your home or business is prone to blocks in your sewer lines hydro jetting may just be your answer. Many businesses in Oshawa find that yearly hydro jetting keep the pipes running in working order and prevent serious issues down the road.
