How High-Pressure Water Jetting Works

By | Uncategorized

While many plumbers prefer the short-term solution of simply unclogging your drain, Rapid Plumbing & Drain Service specializes in high-pressure water jetting — the most effective way to clear blockages, grime and other sediments that build up in your drains.

Drain blockages present a large problem to individuals and businesses that rely on their drains to operate properly. For example, restaurants constantly wash dishes and cooking implements, dumping food particles down the drain and causing a buildup of biological material. High-pressure water jetting, also known as hydro-jetting — represents a low-cost, reliable and environmentally-friendly solution for removing blockages and preventing them from reoccurring.

Hydrojetting works through blasting water under high pressure into a pipe. Typical water blasters use pressures anywhere between 7000 PSI (pounds per square inch) to 60000 PSI depending on the situation. Increasing the pressure helps to knock hardened grime and other materials loose, while increasing the flow of the water helps to carry softer materials down the drain.

The head of the hose uses small nozzles that increase the pressure and direct the stream of water.  Forward-facing nozzles remove the blockage, while rear-facing nozzles help push the hose down the pipe and wash out loose debris. High-pressure water jetting also reuses water, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to other cleaning solutions on the market.

Preventing blockages with high-pressure water jetting is just as feasible as removing them.  For businesses like restaurants, having your drains cleaned on a regular basis ensures long-term build ups pose little to no problem, and prevent losing time and money due to a need to address a clogged drain.
