What is hydro jetting?
Hydro jetting is a sewer cleaning process that uses a small amount of water to blast away buildup in pipes. The highly pressurized water is powerful enough to completely clear your line and make it look like new!
There are multiple sizes and types of pipe in sewer drain lines and hydro jetting can safely remove all of the blockages, rather than just putting a hole through it the way that snakes do. It’s proven to be one of the fastest, safest, and most reliable ways to knock out your plumbing problems.
At R.B. Travis, we perform a two-step hydro jetting process:
- Video inspection: Before doing any major work, we use advanced video equipment to inspect your pipes and determine whether they need to be replaced, repaired, or simply cleaned out. Through this inspection, our Livermore plumbers can also discover and pinpoint any leaks or major blockages
- Hydro jetting: Using a 4000 PSI water stream, we blast away any debris that has built up in your pipes. From leaves and tree roots to powdered detergents, there are many foreign objects that can clog up to 100 feet or more of sewer line
Our expert Livermore plumbers use only the best hydro jetting equipment in the industry. This high-pressure sewer cleaning technology can remove virtually anything in its path without causing any damage to your line.
“Very professional staff and plumbers. They did an excellent job on my meter box/sidewalk keeping everything nice and clean after the job was done.”- Marcel D
The Importance of Hydro Jetting
In the old days of hydro jetting, tree roots were known to infiltrate and plague pipes. Thankfully, hydro jetting machines today are able to clear out even the toughest of tree roots, along with built up waste, grease, and other objects.
It’s critical to have hydro jetting services performed on a regular basis in order to prevent major damages that can be caused by built up debris. So when you have a clog, we can be right there to resolve it.
Is Hydro Jetting Better Than Snaking?
Both hydro jetting and snaking are effective ways to clearing your drains, but which is better? Commonly, people consider hydro jetting to be a better way of clearing drains. Hydro jetting is more powerful and can even remove grease buildup that has developed overtime.
Is Hydro Jetting safe for Old Pipes?
Yes, hydro jetting can be safe for old pipes when performed by experienced professionals who assess the condition of the pipes beforehand. Hydro jetting is a highly effective method for clearing clogs and removing buildup in pipes using high-pressure water. However, the safety of hydro jetting old pipes depends on their structural integrity. If the pipes are already compromised or weakened, the intense water pressure could potentially cause further damage.
It is crucial to have a thorough inspection of the pipes before opting for hydro jetting to ensure they can withstand the pressure. Skilled plumbers from R.B. Travis can assess the condition of the pipes and determine if hydro jetting is a suitable and safe option for you. In cases where the pipes are too fragile or damaged, alternative methods may be recommended to avoid exacerbating any existing issues.
