As you probably know, clogged drains can be a huge hassle to deal with. Some can be fixed quite easily, but others require a solution with a little more “kick.” If you find yourself in such a situation in your Indianapolis area home, it might be time to try hydro jetting to get the job done, a solution that many experts are turning to when faced with a difficult job.
When you employ hydro jetting to clear a clogged drain, you’re utilizing powerful water pressure. The process is so effective that many businesses use it on a regular basis. Recently, however, many homeowners have begun to realize how well this process works. The pressure you’ll see from hydro jetting typically falls in the range of 1,500-4,000 pounds per minute.
Practically nothing in your drain can stand up to hydro jetting due to the extreme water pressure that it uses. If your drains have collected elements such as sand, sentiment and grease, a technician will often turn to hydro jetting because of the difficulty involved with clearing the clogged drain. Although the equipment is a bit cumbersome, it’s often the best solution for a complex job.
Hydro jetting is so effective because of how it specifically cleans your clogged drain. As it moves through your pipes, the extremely powerful stream pushes forward to clean them. However, a bit of double duty is involved, because the jets that propel the tool farther down your pipes are spraying in reverse. This combination of forward and reverse water streams work together to clean out anything that might be clogging up your drain, so matter how thick it has become.
