Clogged drains can always be a hassle. Having the right equipment is essential to clearing clogged drains and minimizing damage done to your drains and pipes. It’s not always wise to use over the counter drain cleaning products like Drano or Liquid Plumber as they can damage pipes and plumbing. In some cases these products can go as far as melting through your plastic pipes. Pipes can typically be cleaned by either the use of a mechanical drain cleaning machine known as a snake, in which a cable is inserted into the drain usually through a clean out access, the cable is pushed down the sewer/drain and rotates through the clog and thus clearing the pipe of a drain blockage. This method is usually the cheapest way to cleaning/clearing drain pipe clogs and blockages, although not always the most efficient method.
Hydro Jetting is a newer approach to sewer and drain cleaning utilizing high water pressure to penetrate sewer and drain blockages/stoppages. The hydro jetting method is much more efficient and can eliminate frequent and costly drain cleaning call backs. By utilizing a hydro jetter and a sewer camera at the same time to clear sewer and drain blockages or stoppages, Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter can typically scour the pipe walls clean by placing the hydro jetter nozzle exactly where the problem spots are. This approach is a great way to cut out roots inside of sewer and drains. It is important to understand that most plumbers who offer hydro jetting as a service have and will not make the investment of purchasing the correct hydro jetting nozzles to correctly clean your sewer or drains, resulting in a poor hydro jetting service. Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter has made the investment of several hydro jetting nozzles, along with several different size jetting hoses to accomodate all sizes of pipes from 1 1⁄2″ through 12″.
