Water jetting, or hydro jetting, serves as an effective method for cleansing and unclogging drains, sewer lines, and various surfaces, with additional applications like graffiti removal. This process employs powerful, high-pressure water blasts to eliminate blockages, clear drains, and eliminate deposits from pipes and other surfaces.
The process involves pumping water through a storage tank using a high-pressure hose. These powerful streams of water are subsequently harnessed to effectively remove blockages. This proves particularly advantageous in cases where conventional cleaning methods have failed to dislodge a blockage or when navigating through tight bends—something that may not be possible with drain rods or other DIY methods.
When do you need it?
It is best to use water jetting as soon as possible. Over time, blockages can lead to internal decay of the drain, emphasizing the urgency of addressing the issue. Moreover, drain jetting as a preventive measure is highly beneficial, with claims suggesting a remarkable improvement in flow efficiency, often exceeding 90 percent.
Be vigilant for signs such as sluggish drainage (prolonged emptying of sinks, showers, or baths), foul odors emanating from drains (a common symptom of clogs), gurgling sounds indicating potential sewer drain line issues, and inconsistent toilet water levels—often a sign that a clog is affecting the water level.
While there are DIY methods, such as using household drain cleaning fluids and vinegar, that you can attempt to unclog a drain, it’s advisable to consult a Handyside professional if these methods prove ineffective. Persistent issues may indicate more serious underlying problems with the drains that require professional attention.
There is also the risk that some homemade methods can do more harm than good, so it is important to follow instructions carefully and if you are in any doubt you should call Handyside. While it is an investment to use a professional water jetting service, it will be more effective in the long term.
