Clogged pipes in your home or business pose a very serious problem. It may cause disruption with the smooth flow of water – work and routine. There are different ways that clogging problems are solved, but the best tip would be to call a licensed plumber than fix the problem yourself. Hiring a professional plumbing contractor ensures that everything is done right the first time. Having a licensed plumber may save you some bucks because you only hire to solve your clogged pipe and not replace it.
Clogged pipes may be solved by snaking or what seems to be the better method, hydro jetting. Snaking only breaks up clogs, but leaves build up still attached to the interior walls. Plumbing snakes enter the drain, come physically in contact with the obstruction, and break it apart. A plumbing snake is a better drain-cleaning tool for clogs that are too stubborn for a plunger. But if the plunger and the plumbing snake works to no avail, you may need a more powerful tool to clean your drain. The method used by licensed plumbing contractors to clean a clogged pipe or a slow sewage line is hydro jetting (high pressure water jetting).
Hydro jetting works by feeding a nozzle into your drain or inside your pipe and using a pressure of 35000 psi, the nozzle self-propels inside the pipe. Once the nozzle encounters a clog such as paper, fabric, thick grease, or clumps of food, the high pressure water jets streams rip the material apart, making it dissolve. The type of nozzle used depends on the size of the drain, the application, or the type of clogged material.
Homes and commercial facilities both experience clogging of drains or pipes. The problem can be simple as a clogged drain or as complex as a sewer drain clog. There are ways you can avoid clogging of drains and sewer pipes. Avoid treating your toilet like a trash can else it will cause significant sewer drain issues. Always remember that toilet paper and human waste are the only things that can be flushed down the toilet. Other drains and pipe clogging culprits are fats, grease, and oil, which are poured directly down the drain. There is a wrong notion that running hot water while flushing grease down the drain helps wash it away. But that is not the case. When the grease cools off, it hardens and sticks to the sides of the pipe. The proper thing to avoid grease from clogging your pipes is to pour hot grease in a glass, and then you can throw it away when it solidifies. If clogging was not avoided, hydro jetting is your best bet to clear your pipes.
Hydro jetting removes silt, sand, and even hair that builds up on the walls of the pipes of your drain. Sometimes when other trash such as paper or other residue piles up, hydro jetting can quickly clear it because of the high pressure used. It is both beneficial to residential and commercial plumbing. Hydro jetting should be done regularly by commercial establishments such as restaurants to avoid grease and food particle build-up. The advantage of hydro jetting is that it breaks up and cleans what is clogging your drain while snaking only breaks it up. Hydro jetting breaks up the clog and essentially cleans the interior walls of the pipe, too. Another benefit of using a hydro setting is that there is no need to use harsh chemicals to remove the clog, so it is environmentally friendly as well. It is also important to note that hydro jetting should be done by a professional plumbing company. It is essential that pipes should be inspected first. This is because the high pressure used in hydro jetting may cause the lines to break. Hydro jetting must be done by plumbing professionals who have ample experience in this system to avoid pipe damage and remove the clog thoroughly.
