is a process that uses high speed / high
pressure water to clear blockages in pipe
systems and is typically the first approach
to clearing blocked lines. Barring the
possibility of a collapsed line, hydro
jetting machine will solve the problem
and thereafter routine maintenance will keep
the lines free and functioning properly.
Maintenance of this sort will go a long way
toward minimizing eventual blockages that
could result in a line breakage requiring
more drastic and expensive remediation.
WHAT IS HYDROJETTING MACHINES?
(a.k.a Hydro Scrubbing) is a process in
which your sewer pipes are scoured by
streams of high-pressure water
shooting out of a hose at up to (241 bar)
3,500 psi. These high-pressure streams are
strong enough to cut through and clear out
any debris in your sewer lines.
HOW DOSE HYDROJETTING MACHINES WORK?
done through an opening called a cleanout,
which is an accessible opening present in
every plumbing system and designed to allow
plumbers to easily "clean out" debris and
other clogs. A Hydro jetter consists
of a large tank of water, a special
high-pressure hose, a special high-strength
nozzle, and a machine which pressurizes the
water in the hose so that it can spray out
of the nozzle at a pressurized rate of up to
3,500 psi and a flow rate of 18 gpm.
system is designed to carry waste water
"downstream" using gravity. The Hydro
Jetting nozzle is placed at the "downstream"
end of the plumbing system and it works its
way "upstream" against gravity. That way,
any debris that is cleared out by the Hydro
Jetter will harmlessly flow downstream where
the drainage path is already clear.
PressureJet designed hydrojetters are
capable of clearing out sewer lines over a
length of several hundred feet.
WHEN WOULD I NEED HYDRO JETTING MACHINES?
are an appropriate solution when clogs
cannot be removed through traditional
snaking, such as in the presence of stubborn
roots that have found their way into your
sewer lines. Hydro blasting machine
is also required before Pipe Lining because
any debris present in the existing pipe may
cause the epoxy lining resin to be malformed
and / or prevent it from bonding correctly
to the existing pipe.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HYDROJETTING
cut through the most stubborn roots and
debris and remove built-up mineral deposits
and other obstructions clogging the inside
of your drainage line.
Hydrojetting machine is strong enough to
clear out roots from your sewer lines, any
amount of root penetration is cause for
serious concern. Root penetration pervasive
enough to cause repeated backups indicates
that the roots have gotten thick enough over
time to damage the pipe and its protective
waterproof inner coating. In those
instances, PressureJet recommends getting a
Camera Inspection to determine the
seriousness of the condition, because sewer
line replacement via Pipe Bursting may be
machine is a method of cleaning holding
tanks in recreational vehicles. This method
uses high pressure streams of water to
remove virtually all build up in tanks and
and enzymes which remove very little build
up and can be detrimental to the
environment, hydro-jet cleaning completely
cleans all holding tanks with no ill effects
to the vehicle or the environment.
This process may
best be compared to "power washing"
which has also gained popularity as a means
to clean driveways, homes, streets,
commercial vehicles and more.
