Is Hydro Jetting Right for Your Home

Plumbing problems never occur at a convenient time. However, years of hair and grease can easily collect to make your pipes next to impossible to clear. Thankfully the plumbing industry has some new tricks up their sleeves to make clear pipes more attainable for homeowners.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro Jetting is the process of sending high powered blasts into your pipes to clear out any debris or blockage. These bursts of water can reach up to 4000 psi and can clear even the most stubborn blockages. Hydro jetting works with gravity to help remove clogs, mineral deposits, and even roots and pushes them away from the home, clearing your pipes completely. 

While certain clogs can be cleared with other methods, such as roto-rooting, hydro jetting is the only method that clears out the entire pipe not just the width of the snake tool. This method can help avoid expensive sewer line replacement and can ease your plumbing concerns.

How to Avoid Costly Plumbing Issues

In a perfect world, plumbing issues would be simple and easy to fix. Being aware of what you are putting into your drains can greatly improve your chances of having to deal with the stress of plumbing issues. It’s important to be vigilant about what you put in your pipes, avoid letting hair, soaps, paper, and grease into your pipes as best you can. This can ensure that your plumbing issues will be few and far between. 

Unfortunately, not all plumbing issues can be avoided by good habits. One of the most expensive issues to fix are blocked pipes due to tree roots. Aside from removing all the trees on and around your property you have very little control over sneaky roots. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to even the smallest clogs and changes in water pressure because they could be an indication of a much more serious problem.

When it comes to plumbing issues, it is easy to get frustrated and overwhelmed. Trying to fix a major issue on your own can lead to expensive repairs and headaches. Therefore, having experienced professional plumbers on your side is so important. The professionals at Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing are available to help ensure your plumbing issues are dealt with safely and efficiently. They are experienced and ready to help you today.
