What is high-pressure drain cleaning?

High-pressure water jetting utilizes force-pressured water that is pulled through to clear drains by ripping apart blockages and flushing the remaining debris.

High-pressure drain cleaning effectively clears and cleans both drains and pipes. It is designed to efficiently clean the sides of drains and pipes as well as clear blockages.

What are the benefits of high-pressure drain cleaning?

Professional drain cleaning equipment is built with industrial-grade components that can handle high pressures, including a flexible line which can pass through elbows, and can carry several thousand PSI. A jet-nozzle tool can be used to pull through both the front and back of drain pipes. It breaks apart clogs in the pipes and prevents future clogs by removing debris from the drains.

There are many types of jetter nozzles available to the professional plumber, and each one is designed to perform a certain function. There are many tools used to cut tree roots and to clear grease and sludge from pipes, and they all have their place in any professional’s toolbox.

Most drains get clogged by grease, debris, sand and sludge. In order to flush out the system, a high-pressure drain cleaning system must be used to first break up the debris and sludge, emulsify the grease, penetrate hardened scale, and pulverize minor tree roots if they are a problem.

If you don’t service the waste lines, it’s just a matter of time until you’ll be faced with a blocked drain.

In older homes, high-pressure jetting should be avoided because it can cause cracks in the existing pipe and lead to future problems. You’ll need to talk to your plumber about your waste system, whether it’s a new waste system or an upgrade. It may be necessary to have the sewage line inspected to see how its condition

High-pressure water jetting systems work well on all types of drain lines. They can be used for the drainage lines that lead from your home to a septic tank or city sewer, and they can also be used for drainage lines that run from your home to your building’s basement or crawl space. They are useful tools that can also be effective in thawing frozen pipes and sewer drains, which is why they are used by plumbers and pipe-cleaning professionals.
