High Pressure Sewer Jetting

Sewer lines and drain lines have an essential function. Their job is to carry the waste and/or water away from your home or business. Unfortunately, over time these lines can become slow running or plugged. Many culprits can cause such backups and may need high pressure sewer jetting.

When things are flushed or put down drains that shouldn’t be there, backups can happen quite often. Wet wipes, grease, and feminine products are just some of the primary culprits. Nothing should be flushed other than toilet paper.

Tree roots can also penetrate sewer lines and eventually cause a blockage. When this happens, we can provide the services needed to unplug those drain lines. A lot of times, the answer is high-pressure sewer jetting.

You ask what is high-pressure sewer jetting? High-pressure sewer jetting is a method of cleaning sewer and drain lines using pressurized water. An engine powers a high-pressure pump that produces this effect. A hose with specific nozzle tips depending upon job needs is designed to direct a high-pressure stream of water to pull the jetter hose through the pipe.

Some of our nozzle ends are best to use if we are dealing with grease and wipes. In other cases, we use root cutting ends for when we are dealing with roots.

High-pressure jetting is used for many jobs. Sewer lines, footer, downspouts, and basement drains are just a few. If you have any questions about our high-pressure jetting service, call us today.

  • I really appreciate you talking about how grease is a common culprit of clogs in pipes. My sister is trying to clear out her drains today because she has a lot of blockages. It seems like hydro jetting is the best way to clear the pipes because it can get everything moving properly.

  • My sewers are clogged, and I’m not sure what I should do about it. It makes sense that having high pressure sewer jetting done would be beneficial! That seems like a great way to ensure that everything is thoroughly cleaned out.

  • That’s cool that you could use a hoe with enough pressure to cut through tree roots. I would think that would be useful if you have a clog that won’t come loose. If that ever happens to me, I’ll have to consider getting someone to help me fix my sewer line with one of those.

  • It’s great to know that those wet wipes shouldn’t be sent into the sewer. My parents use those and I think that might have contributed to their sewer pump breaking. They obviously need to get that fixed ASAP so I’ll call a technician that can help them out.

  • I believe that my parent’s sewer lines and drains are starting to back up because they have an awful smell. The house is old and I wouldn’t be surprised if the pipes are much smaller. I’ll let them know about this process so they can have a technician come out and unclog their drains.

  • It is good to know that wipes shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet. My wife and I have been having a debate for a few weeks now about why she can’t flush the wipes down the toilet. I’ll have to tell her that we’re gonna have to get a jetting service soon if she keeps flushing the baby’s wipes down our sewer line.

  • I found it interesting that only specific things can be flushed without causing back ups. My dad has been talking about problems with his flush system, so I have been looking into causes and solutions for him. I will keep this in mind and send him this information before I start looking for a sewer contractor that can come fix the problem for him.

  • didn’t realize that a blockage in our sewer line could be due to tree roots. Our property has a lot of trees on it and they might be close to the sewer line. We’ll start looking into a professional plumber to diagnose the health of our line.
