When something is stuck in your pipes, a plumber will typically use a snake to reach into the pipes and pull it out. In some cases, a liquid rooter will work. They break down organic clogs like soap and hair. However, in some cases, certain clogs cannot be easily cleared out with a snake or with liquid rooter. Some clogs are the result of roots that have grown into your pipes or buildup around the inside of the pipe. If that’s the case, you’ll likely need hydro-jetting. Jetting the pipes is a fairly simple process, but it does require a professional.
What Is It?
When you call a specialist for hydro-jetting in National City, they will use a special machine that pressurizes the water. The hose and the nozzle are also rated to contain the highly pressurized water. The jetting machines typically pressurize water up to 3,500 PSI. That’s enough power to cut through roots that have grown into your pipes and to also scour any debris off the lining of the pipes.
However, if you have roots growing in your pipes, it could be a sign that you need to take further action. Roots are surprisingly resilient; if they have damaged your pipes once, they will likely continue to grow and threaten your pipes again. You should call MVP Rooter to ask them what to do about roots.
Your pipes could also be clogged due to the buildup on the walls of the pipes. Over time, especially if you have hard water or well water, debris can build up on the lining of the pipes, which will eventually harden and restrict the free flow of water. In order to combat that, you’ll need hydro-jetting to clean out your pipes. A snake will not remove that kind of damage to the pipes. Fortunately, it can be forced out with high pressure water.
