Water jetting is one of the most effective tools a plumber has for cleaning and maintaining home sewer and drain lines. While cable machines (also known as drain snakes) can remove tough clogs and obstructions, they are not as effective at removing residue like grease that can cling to the inside of sewer and drain lines. Cables also can't completely clean out the debris that they break up inside the pipe.
The water jetting process uses advanced pumps and flexible hoses to propel water under pressure into the sewer or drain lines. The key to effective water jetting is a special nozzle that directs water jets both forward and backwards to "scrub" the pipe walls and cut through the toughest residue.
High-pressure water jetting is a safe, environmentally-friendly sewer and drain cleaning method that offers the following advantages:
- Penetrates and emulsifies grease
- Breaks up sludge
- Pulverizes tree roots
- Clears away hardened scale
- Thoroughly flushes out a plumbing system
