John the Plumber Hamilton has years of experience in draining and de-clogging drains and pipes of all kinds. Pouring corrosive drain cleaners down your pipes to loosen a clog is not an option to us, and sometimes a block is so bad that a snake or hand auger will only make a small hole in it, or push the blockage further down. In this type of situation, one of our licensed and knowledgeable plumbers may recommend a service called ‘Hydro Jetting’. We hear it’s the best blockage breaker in town!
What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro Jetting is a powerful stream of water fed by a nozzle into your drain line. High pressure water goes into the system breaking up the blockage and build up into your drain pipes. It is quick and efficient and they are extremely effective in destroying grease build up, as well as any other sludge that may be lurking in your the pipe walls.
Pre-Hydro Jetting, a plumber will observe the state of the pipe via a camera inspection; this is done to ensure the powerful jets do not cause damage, or worsen any existing damage. A camera inspection will also be done afterwards to ensure that the Hydro Jetting was successful, and that the drains are running efficiently again.
What are the Benefits?
Added benefits to having a Hydro Jet Procedure are that you will notice that your sinks and tubs drain much faster. And you will lose any unwanted odors that were part of the blockage. Hydro Jetting on a continual basis will aid in avoiding emergency blockages in the future, and will provide you with a literal inspection of “what’s coming down the pipe” in your Hamilton home. Contact John The Plumber Hamilton as soon as you need, and we would be pleased to book your Hydro Jet estimate or appointment.
TIP: If your pipe had been compromised by tree roots, they will need to be broken down by an auger before a Hydro Jet can be used.
