Why Should You Consider Hydro-Jetting Your Drains?
Homeowners should know that there is a difference between ‘clearing’ your drain and ‘cleaning’ your drain.
The first step is clearing the drain which is often done with a snake or auger. This simply restores flow by poking through the clog. The next step is cleaning the drain which is done with a high-pressure Hydro-Jet that pushes all built-up debris out to the original diameter of your pipe.
Curious if Hydro-Jetting is the right choice for you? There are several major benefits you can expect from scheduling Hydro-Jetting with Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air.
It’s Fast and Non-Invasive
Fact: Hydro-Jetting is a fast, easy procedure. If you have a stubborn or recurring drain blockage the Hydro-Jet hose fits through your pipes and cleans the built-up debris. Many homeowners actually plan annual Hydro-Jet maintenance, especially before the holidays, to keep their drains running smoothly with a busy household.
Your Pipes May Last Longer
The average lifespan of home plumbing is between 50 to 70 years, but pipes may break down and burst ahead of their time if they aren't properly maintained. Poor maintenance or long-term sediment build-up can weaken your residential plumbing system's structural integrity and cause frequent clogs, slow draining, and reduced flow rates.
However, if you're looking to lessen the chance of running into a potential issue down the road, be proactive and consider periodic Hydro-Jetting sessions to help keep your plumbing system in great shape for the years to come.
Because a Hydro-Jet blasts water at a force between 3,000 to 8,000 PSI, lingering bacteria that thrive in wet conditions will be cleared away. This leads to a much cleaner system overall and reduced worry over water-born bacteria lurking in your pipes.
Reduced Risk of Future Problems
If you need to have a clog resolved right away (and who doesn’t?), Hydro-Jetting takes care of the immediate problem as well as lessens the chance of future hazards. Rather than simply removing a blockage only for dirty pipes to fill up again, Hydro-Jetting leaves them completely clean. This means your home will have a reduced risk of repeat clogs and drain troubles.
