As important as it is to keep the drains, drainpipes, and sewer pipes clean and free of clogs it is just as critical to hire a professional plumbing company, like Northridge Plumber, to perform the work. Otherwise you are taking some serious and unnecessary risks. For example, when the drainpipes become clogged with the buildup of food grease, food particles, hair, soap particles, and shampoo residue the wastewater is blocked from going down the drainpipes and entering into the sewer pipeline.
Instead it backs up into the drainpipes causing the sink drains, shower drains, tub drains, and toilet drains to flood. In a worst-case scenario the blockages will dredge up raw sewage and waste materials along with the wastewater. That is a situation that you should absolutely avoid at all costs due to the fact that these fluids and solids contain high levels of bacteria and contagious diseases. Exposure can certainly make the people residing in or working at your residential, commercial, or industrial property sick, and in some cases terminally ill.
If you decide to attempt the task yourself than you are taking the risk of causing some serious damage to the system. Drainpipes, sewer pipes, and plumbing fixtures such as toilets and sinks are fragile by nature. It is extremely easy to crack a porcelain toilet or sink with a metal plumbing tool. Conversely, these same tools should only be left in the hands of professionals that are both trained and experienced in how to properly use them.
One wrong move or slight slip of the hand can crack or even break a drainpipe or sewer pipe. The mistake can cause thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars in pipe repair work that could have been avoided. In fact progressive plumbing contractors now rely on advances in plumbing technology as opposed to metal tools. Hydro jetting is one such high-tech procedure. The process employs the use of highly pressurized water to thoroughly clean the drainpipes and sewer pipes.
A plumbing technician will insert the hydro jetting hose into the sewer system through an access point such as a drain cleanout. He or she will set the correct amount of water pressure and gallons per minute. Each and every job calls for specific settings based on the age of the pipes, the condition of the pipes, and the materials that the pipes are made of. If too little water pressure and gallons of water per minute is used it will not effectively clean the plumbing system.
On the other hand if too much water pressure and gallons of water per minute is used than it can crack and break the pipes. As the highly pressured water is sprayed into the drainpipes and sewer pipeline it cleans all interior surface areas of the pipes. The buildup and gunk flow down the drainpipes and sewer pipes and exits the system. The hydro jetting procedure is fast, non-invasive and affordable to the point where you should be having it done at your home, place of business, and or investment property or properties on a yearly basis.
