A simple video pipe inspection could be all you need to see if there is an obstruction in your plumbing. If you find a sewer line clog, hydro jetting is a great way to dislodge the blockage. If left alone, clogged sewer lines can cause significant damage to the plumbing in your home or commercial building.
Our construction equipment suppliers in Grand Rapids, MI, recommend renting our sewer cleaning equipment to eliminate the blockage once and for all. In this blog post, we will go over the benefits of hydro jetting so you can make an informed decision.
Power Washes Scale
Hard water is water that has high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals. While hard water doesn’t have an adverse effect on your health, the same can’t be said of your plumbing. If you live in an area with hard water, you’ll want to invest in water softening services.
If left untreated, the minerals in hard water can harden and form deposits called “scale” on the inside of your pipes to create blockages. A video pipe inspection can quickly determine if scale buildup is an issue. High pressure hydro jetting works by directing a strong stream of water through your pipes to power through scale buildup.
Cuts through Grease
Washing grease down the drain is a bad habit that can cause clogs in your sewer line. When you’re done cooking, you’ll want to wipe the cooled pan with a paper towel to soak up grease before throwing it away. Otherwise, the fats in grease and oil can mix with other chemicals in your sewer line to create clogs.
If you own a restaurant you should develop a plan to safely dispose of grease and oil that doesn’t involve putting it down the drain. Neighborhoods with a lot of restaurants tend to have sewers clogged with fat deposits. Make sure you don’t add to the blockages in your sewer line by using a line jetting service.
Safe for Family and the Environment
In many ways, line jetting is safer for your children and pets than if you use harsh chemicals or cleaners. You also don’t have to worry about water jetting destroying your pipes or sewer line.
Even though high-pressure water is used to clear the sewer line blockage, it won’t damage your plumbing. Buying or renting a hydro jet from our equipment suppliers is a great way to ensure you get the safest possible clean.
If your sewer lines are damaged, whether it’s from other methods of cleaning/restoration or another reason, they will likely need to be repaired and potentially replaced before the problem worsens and causes further damage to your plumbing and the rest of your home.
Removes Tree Roots
If you have several large trees planted near your home, you may experience sewer line blockages from time to time. Since tree roots naturally seek out underground supplies of water, they may tap into your sewer line and create blockages.
To remove tree roots in sewer lines, we recommend using high-pressure water jetting. Since tree roots grow back, you may need to plan on cleaning out your sewer line every few years.
