How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
A jetter is a piece of specialized plumbing equipment that plumbers use when hydro jetting. Jetters are used to remove debris from hard-to-reach places, and they are made up of a water tank, hose, nozzle, and a pressurizing system. Depending on the size of the drain or the nature of the blockage, the nozzle may have a variable size or form. Hard blockages, such as those caused by root growth and frozen water, are easy to remove with the use of an appropriate chisel-type spray gun nozzle.
A plumber inserts a nozzle into the sewer line, generally through a cleanout opening, to begin the process of cleaning. Once the plumber has the jetter ready, he will fire a high-pressure stream of water down the sewer line to clear the blockage. High pressure of 3,500 pounds per square inch (psi) can be used to pressurize the water, which causes it to flow down the line at incredible speeds and forces.
An initial video inspection is carried out by a plumber by inserting a small video camera into the sewage pipe to acquire a clear picture of where and what the obstructions are. For example, a snarl of tree roots may be the problem rather than a clump of solidified waste stuff. However, a snake is generally used first to shred the roots into more manageable bits before the plumber may employ hydro jetting against root blockages.
