High Pressure Sewer Jetting

At Tim Frank Septic, our team of skilled professionals knows what it takes to clean a septic tank and to get your waste moving again. One of the main tools routinely utilized for septic tank cleaning is the high-pressure sewer jetter, or hydro jet.

What Is Sewer Jetting?

Sewer jets are the modern answer to plugged lines in most situations and have all the force needed to get lines clear, while deep cleaning pipes. A jetter works by blasting water backwards at 4000 PSI. This force pushes the nozzle down the line towards the blockage. Once it penetrates the blockage, The water from the jetter pulls whatever was causing the issue: roots, hair, grease, etc. back towards the technician. The jetter will also pull any other debris laying in the pipe out, leaving the pipe clear and allowing for easy flow. Our jetter hoses come in two sizes and multiple nozzle ends for a wide range of applications.

Why Sewer Jetting Is Important

Every Ohio household and business relies on their sewer and septic lines, each and every day. But regular use can easily deposit grease, hair, soap scum, food waste, and other substances in sewer lines. These along with minerals, and mud can attach to the interior of pipes and eventually restrict flow, causing clogs and backups. This is an inconvenient and unsanitary situation that no property owner wants to face.

Beyond indoor sources of clogs, roots from vigorous trees or plants located too near to the septic lines can invade pipes, looking for a source of water. Sewer jetting can generally remove these blockages as well.

When to Jet Clean Sewer and Septic Lines

When you are noticing clogs or are experiencing backed-up drains, it is a good possibility that you have a drain that is plugged and give us a call. Our technicians can pinpoint the problem and determine the best solution for the situation. In instances where a sewer line continuously backs up due to roots, toilet paper, grease deposits, etc., routine jetting may help prevent backups when a long-term solution such as replacing the pipe is not desirable.

Sewer jetting is also an ideal service to have done prior to camera work, drain repairs, or repiping, especially when you’re using a modern epoxy lining. With a clean interior, the new lining can best adhere and seal any leaks or cracks.

Jetters are not ideal in every situation, however. Because water is being used, and because the water shoots back towards its entry point, jetting is best done from the outside towards the house. This prevents any additional water from flowing into the house. Where there is outside access, or there are a lot of turns, the electric sewer “snake” might be the better option.
