What’s Hydro Jetting 

Clogged drains and blocked pipes are common plumbing issues many Blair County homeowners face from time to time. These issues can not only be intimidating for many homeowners, but they can also quickly escalate into major problems if not addressed correctly. For instance, blocked drains can cause nasty smells and even contaminate your home’s main water source.
Although clogged drains and blocked pipes can sometimes be handled easily with a plunger, stubborn blockages require a more effective solution. One of the most effective ways to clear persistently clogged drains and main sewer lines is hydro jetting. 

Hydro jetting is a non-invasive plumbing strategy used by professional plumbers to remove blockages effectively. This method uses highly pressurized water (roughly about 4000 PSI) to get rid of more severe blockages inside drain pipes. The high-pressure water will scour the walls of your pipes to clear away just about any clogs, including debris, grease, mineral scale, and tree roots.  
However, keep in mind that hydro jetting can damage your pipes if not done correctly. That’s why it’s best to have hydro jetting done by a professional plumber in Blair County.

How Does Hydro Jetting Work?

The hydro jetting process begins with a comprehensive video inspection of your plumbing pipes to determine the cause of the blockage and its location. After the inspection, your Blair County plumber and insert a jetting hose into the plumbing pipe. The jetting hose is connected to a large tank that sends water into the pipes. The type of jetting hose used for hydro jetting may vary depending on the kind of blockage, the size of the pipes, and the nature of the blockage. The plumber will choose a pressure level to use depending on the nature of the blockage and the condition of your pipes. The hydro jetting tool works its way through your plumbing pipes, shooting up to 20 gallons of water through the pipes each minute to disintegrate any build-up and debris that may be causing blockage.   
NOTE: Hydro jetting is not used to unclog broken or weak pipes because the high-pressure water could damage your plumbing pipes.      

Advantages of Hydro Jetting

  • Unclogs everything in a flash: With high-pressure water working its way through plumbing pipes in a 360-degree manner, hydro jetting is sure to unclog your pipes in no time. 
  • Non-invasive: With hydro jetting, a professional plumbing contractor in Blair County does not need to do any digging to reach plumbing pipes. This aspect makes the whole process less expensive and time-saving. 
  • Long-lasting results: Hydro jetting clears out tackles the problem from its roots; hence it's the best way to address persistent clogging of pipes.  
  • Safe for your plumbing pipes: When done by a qualified and experienced plumber in Blair County, hydro jetting can unclog your pipes safely and effectively.
