Blocked drains and sewer systems can be a hassle for homeowners and business owners across Arizona. While you can try your hand at using a drain rod or plunger to remedy the issue, some blockages require a little more force to get the job done. This is where drain jetting comes in.

As one of the most effective ways to clean drains and pipes, drain jetting is also an incredibly fast procedure that won’t take days or weeks to complete. Also known as high pressure water jetting, drain jetting utilizes a powerful high-pressure water jet to clear drains and pipes of obstructions (these tools can also be used in municipal sewer systems). Drain jets work by running tank-stored water through a high pressure hose. The beauty of drain jets is that they can extend far down a pipe or sewer line, eliminating even the toughest blockages.

Drain jetting is most often used to:

  1. Penetrate and emulsify grease

  2. Break up sludge and debris

  3. Flush out a sewer or pipe system

When a pipe is cleaned with a high pressure water jet, the person controlling the jet (often a professional plumber) will control and direct the water pressure and flow through a nozzle. Most high pressure water jetters can release water pressures up to 4,000 PSI, with a flow rate anywhere between 2 to 25 gallons of water per minute.

Why You Should Consider Drain JettingRoots in a pipe

There are many benefits to drain jetting, and while you may think you can perform the task yourself, it’s always best to hire a local plumber who has experience in the area. Drain jetting equipment can be fairly expensive, not to mention the procedure can be a safety hazard when performed by an untrained professional. Unlike drain pipes and plungers, drain jetting can help you get to the bottom of your drain issue must quicker. It has also been shown to increase water flow efficiency up to 95 percent!

While drain jetting is a wonderful service when your drains are clogged or obstructed, it is also a great way to prevent future drain issues from occurring. If your Arizona home or business could benefit from professional drain jetting, contact the professional plumbers at Robins Plumbing, Inc today.
