Hydro-Jetting Keeps Pipes Clean for a Longer Life
If you have never heard of hydro-jetting, consider yourself lucky. This is a tool that plumbers use when a snake or smaller tool will not work to get rid of tough clogs. This tool also used with tree roots get the way of the plumbing lines that go back and forth between the main lines under the street. Hydro-jetting is often done on sewer lines that get clogged, too. In many cases, the only other alternative to hydro-jetting is tearing out plumbing line from your home to the street. So, when you do need work done on major plumbing lines, it is good know that hydro-jetting Orange County is an option.
One of the most common problems that hydro-jetting solves is the issue with tree roots. Many sewer lines and main plumbing lines get damaged by tree roots that easily push their way into them. Instead of tearing up your grass or your foundation, hydro-jetting uses a jet of high pressure water to break up the clog that is blocking your pipes. The water is set to a psi around 4000. Hydro-jets are not like fire hoses; instead, they are very thin lines of water that act like a hot knife cutting through butter. These thin lines break up the clog and press it down through the pipes. The slurry it creates flows and the hydro-jet then cleans out the insides of the pipe to prevent further damage.
This type of repair is less invasive than digging up pipes and yards. It is also less damaging that the typical snake with rotating blades that have been known to cut pipes from the inside. When a plumber uses a hydro-jet, the plumber can see exactly where the problem is by using video technology with fiber optics. These small cameras let the plumber see great detail so he knows exactly where to use the hydro-jet.
Over the years, household pipes get clogged with so much residue every day. Think of everything you pour down the drain in the kitchen. Everything from: grease to oils, eggshells to old meat.

You want to clean the pipes down to the pipes and only hydro-jetting will do this. Your drain will flow freely after a hydro-jet goes to work on it.
