Shortly after locating an obstruction making use of visual investigation or with a flexible video camera system, a selection must be established regarding what approach to use to unclog the line. Of course, the homeowner would most certainly choose a fix that does not necessitate digging up their landscape.
One technique that is becoming quite widespread is to apply a high-pressure water spray to unblock and also clean the pipe blockage. This is a professional service described as hydro-jetting. In a lot of cases, the fix and cleaning would be performed with only a minimal amount of digging up the yard. The Hydro Jetter uses a high pressure water jet to cut through sludge, grease, paper clogs, roots and many other materials that hinder water free flow within your septic pipes.
The hydro jetting technique is much better in many aspects in comparison to the previous mechanical techniques of pipe cleaning. The device does not need strong physical manipulation, such that could cause further damage to the pipe bends and joints.
The hydro jetter comes with quite a variety of tips and heads that are effective for the different materials creating the block. Note the position of the spray jets in the added photo. Some are aimed in front, and others directed to the rear. This specific design will do the loosening and slicing of clogs from the front as the spray head is moved along through the pipes.
Then the rear facing sprayer streams will propel and clear the water out so the process will be even more efficient. This rearwards action will wash out piled up material from the lowest part of the line, pushing it out for later removal. The operator can control the travel speed and distance of the nozzle throughout the pipelines.
Whenever you have a sewage system that is connected to the community sewer network, there are sideward pipelines that carry your sewage directly from home drainpipes, showers and toilets. The high pressure jetting technique could also be utilized to clear and clean up any obstacle anywhere between your home and the community sewage system main line.
