To complete a successful hydro jet drain cleaning, a professional plumber uses a special hydro jetting machine. This specific drain cleaning machine has various PSI levels, and the water stream that is uses can be as strong as 4,000 PSI. This is the force that will push and carry away all of the drain pipe debris clogging your drains.
Now that you know how hydro jet drain cleaning works, let’s talk about if this specific drain cleaning process is safe for your pipes. While hydro jetting your drain is one of the best options for fast drain cleaning, keep in mind that this cleaning process packs a very powerful force at once! Homeowners cannot clean their drain themselves using this technique! It can only be performed by a professional drain and sewer cleaning company.
In addition, always think about the condition of your drain pipes and know how old they are. In cases where you have much older and frailer drain pipes, the strong water from the jet could damage them and cause them to break easily. Therefore, if you know that you have older pipes, have a professional drain and sewer cleaning plumber carefully inspect them by using a drain camera. The drain camera inspection gives a detail view of the inside of the drain pipe, giving enough information to determine the structural integrity of the line. If after the drain or sewer camera inspection, the plumber determines that the pipe is damaged or too weak, hydro jetting will not be a good option. If your pipes are too fragile hydro jetting will simply cause more harm than good. Moreover, it may cause for the pipe to completely break and even collapse.
