What do you do when you’re dealing with a clogged drain or sewer line that’s been accruing heavy-duty residue like grease, soap, silt, sand and other debris for years? Conventional methods more than likely won’t work, so you can forget about dumping Drain-O down the drain and for that matter, using a snake. Big league clogs require big league solutions: this is where hydro-jetting comes into play.
Hydro-jetting isn’t something you can do yourself. It requires a machine that acts as the King Kong of drain cleaning mechanisms. A hydro-jet drain cleaning machine is a water powered drain cleaner that the operator inserts into the drain to literally blow the problem away. These machines are capable of pushing out 1500 to 4000 pounds of water pressure, meaning anything that’s blocking the drain will be history, and fast. Not only is a hydro-jet machine the most effective tool for blowing out clogs, it’s also the longest lasting because the powerful stream scours drains clean, leaving them like new.
As a homeowner, you probably won’t need a hydro-jet cleaning machine for your sinks, tubs or toilets, but you may need professional assistance for stubborn clogs. In that case, contact Thompson Plumbing Heating & Cooling for red carpet service and Green Screened Certified Plumbers.
