High-Pressure Water Jetter's are used more frequently to clear blocked drains. These jetter's are used in conjunction with a CCTV Drain Camera Inspection that provide you with not only an unblocked drain but the cause of the problem to ensure future blockages are avoided. A high-pressure water jetter works by inserting the nozzle of the jetter into an access point of the blocked drain, sewer, stormwater or downpipes. Water is then blasted through the drain, working to completely strip all the buildup and residue off the pipes sides while flushing out any foreign objects or roots that may be blocking the pipes. Here are the top benefits of water jetting:
Unlike conventional drain snake-type cleaners that break up debris only to re-clog later on while sometimes using harmful and dangerous liquids, water jetting removes the clog completely, safely, preventing self-healing clogs of substances such as grease from re-forming and in a very environmentally safer option. By only using water to break up the blockage, it ensures that no harmful chemicals are being put into your sewer line.
The cost involved to get a pipe cleared with a 5000psi Water Jetter will always be more valuable than an Electric Eel because of the time involved. The exact location of the blockage can be pin-pointed with the drain camera and then cleared with the Water Jetter. This allows the blockage to be cleared much quicker so you won't be paying for hours and hours of labour. With the set up of Jetter being much more efficient, the plumber is able to start clearing the blockage straight away.
High-pressure water jetting is more efficient than many other drain cleaning methods. It has the ability to penetrate deeper into built-up debris, and flush out roots, rocks, minerals, and any other obstructions that can clog up and get caked onto your pipes. With the use of an electric eel, debris within your sewer line is cut by a steel rod in an attempt to penetrate the blockages, however, in doing so it has the potential to damage your pipes without fully clearing the blockage properly. A high-pressure water jetter will not only clear the blockage, but it will also push the remaining debris into the main sewer line to ensure there are no further blockages down in your home's plumbing system.
