Does your kitchen sink constantly back up? Perhaps your main sewer line is fully clogged and won’t drain? Some clogs cannot be cleared with store-bought cleaners; this is where hydro-jetting makes its grand entrance. Hydro-jetting is an ideal solution for drain cleaning. At Metro Heating & Cooling, we have the experience, tools, and skills needed to unclog any pipe or drain, especially the most stubborn pipes and drains.
What is Hydro Jetting?
When your drain is clogged and a traditional cable won’t do the trick, Hydro-Jetting is your answer. Hydro Jetting is a method of drain cleaning that uses extremely high pressure (up to 4000 PSI!) water jets that remove sludge build up, tree roots and almost anything in their path. Hydro-jetting is an effective, efficient, and eco-friendly way to clean pipes and drains. If you think you may need Hydro-Jetting services, contact Metro today!
Hydro jet cleaning is often used to clean graffiti, layers of grime from driveways and other surfaces. The high-pressure release allows it to effortlessly blast ground-in dirt away.
If your sewer line requires hydro jetting, there are several steps that your contractor will take to begin the process. Firstly, they will do a video inspection of the pipe, using a camera to check if the pipe is blocked or whether another issue is at play, such as a collapsed pipe. This will assess whether or not hydrojetting is the avenue which should be pursued. If in the case of a collapsed pipe, you may need to consider replacement or repair.
Once the issue has been identified, the pipe is accessed via a chute known as the cleanout. This will give the contractor access to the pipe and enable them to use the hydro jet without being too invasive.
Hydro Jetting should only be done by trained professionals, as they are aware of how much pressure should be applied to ensure that the pipe itself doesn’t get damaged during the process.
What are the Benefits of Hydro-Jetting?
If your kitchen sink is constantly backing up or draining slowly, you may want to consider hydro jetting. Hydro-Jetting is also a great solution when tree roots are blocking your sewer line.
Over time, debris will build on your drain line and the diameter of your pipes will become smaller and clog. Once this happens, a traditional drain snake will only poke a small hole in the blockage and you’ll need to have the pipes jetted. Hydro-Jetting:
- Clears out the toughest drain clogs that have not responded well to drain cleaners or cable equipment
- Removes build-up in drains and other areas
- Unclogs grease and other debris in your lines
- Prevents hazardous waste back-ups
- Hydro-Jetting can be used to clean out any pipe, regardless of the size
- Hydro jetting is safe and eco friendly, As it only uses pressurized water, no chemicals are necessary
- Hydro jetting can also be used to remove small tree roots from your pipes, which can dismantle them before they cause any real damage to the system.
Hydro-jetting isn’t the only option for cleaning drains, and thankfully our team are experts in other ways to clean and clear drains.
What Are Symptoms of A Drain That Needs Hydro-Jetting?
No one wants to experience sewage coming back up from a sink, toilet, bathtub, or shower. Metro Heating & Cooling can hydro-jet those problems away. If you notice any of the following, you may have a problem with your drain or sewer line and it’s time to call the experts at Metro Heating & Cooling:
If your drain is intermittently draining slowly or you constantly have to snake or cable the line, you most likely need a jetting. Sometimes when kitchen drain lines begin to plug up with grease and sludge from cooking and regular use, hydro-jetting is the only way to fix it. Sometimes when the drain gets plugged with sludge a typical drain snake, auger or cable will only poke a small hole in the blockage and not fully relieve your issue.
If you begin to notice any strong odors and unpleasant smells around your kitchen sink, you could have a heavy buildup of grease, grime, food, waste, etc. in your drains. Your drains will need to be Hydro or Water-Jetted to completely eliminate your issue. Put down the coat hanger and drain chemicals and have your drains hydro-jetted by Metro!
Tree Root Blockage
If you have large trees between your house and the street, your sewer line may need jetting when it backs up. Most of the time when tree roots block your drain, we can clear it with a traditional snake or cable machine, but sometimes Water-Jetting is required. When tree roots get large in your drain, a Jetter is needed to blast them away.
