One of the easiest ways to maintain your plumbing system in top shape is by keeping it clean. Most people use cleaning products and augers for drain cleaning. So for all intents and purposes, this is useful and you should keep doing it. You can save a lot of money by regularly using consumer drain cleaning products.
However, as great as cleaning chemicals are, sometimes they are not enough. Drain pipes get old, sediments get stuck to the pipe walls, or even residues and intrusions start causing blockages and drainage problems. At this point, chances are you need an industrial drain cleaning service. This process will completely clean the drain pipes better than any product could ever do.
One of the most effective ways to perform an industrial drain cleaning service is hydro jetting. This is a powerful method that works by shooting a high-pressure stream of water that removes any hard blockages and completely washes away any debris stuck to the pipe’s walls. Think of it as resetting your drain pipes.
Sewer jetting is the top choice for companies that offer industrial drain cleaning services because the process is fast, effective, and affordable. Just to give you an idea of how powerful a water-jetter is, here are some numbers:
Sewer drain jetters operate with a water pressure of up to 4,000 PSI. For comparison, water pressure at home is around 50 PSI.
The industrial water jetters we use to clean drains have a flow rate of anywhere from 3 to 20 gallons per minute. How much water flow is needed depends on the diameter of the drain pipes that need cleaning. For additional reference, hydro-jetters used for main city sewer lines can have water flows of up to 120 gallons per minute.
When Does a Drain Pipe Need Cleaning?
Ideally you should bring in Roberts Plumbing’s industrial drain cleaning service every two years or so. This will give you the peace of mind of knowing your pipes will always remain clean.
However, drain cleaning is best done before you have a problem. Hydro-jetting is extremely effective and works for almost any situation but it will not fix problems caused by pipe damage. If you wait until you see drainage problems, and we confirm there is pipe damage with a camera inspection, water-jetting will not repair the damage and we would need a different solution. While not a perfect example, water-jetting a damaged drain pipe is like inflating a punctured flat tire. The tire will inflate and work fine for a little while, but it will go flat again eventually.
