Just after performing an inspection for sewer pipe blockage employing visual investigation or with a flexible video camera, a choice must be formed about just what procedure to apply to clear the pipe. Obviously, the homeowner would definitely prefer a repair that does not involve digging up their lawn.
One method that is becoming particularly widely used is to apply high pressure water spray within the pipes to clear and clean up the sewer obstruction. In many cases, the fix and cleaning can easily be performed with no more than a minimal amount of excavating on the property. This is a professional service described as hydro jetting.
The Hydro Jetter makes use of high pressure water spray to cut through sludge, grease, paper clogs, roots and many other materials which impede water flow inside your septic pipes.
The hydro jetting process is much better in many respects in comparison to the past mechanical procedures of pipe cleaning. The device does not involve strong manual manipulation, which could create damage to pipe bends and joints.
The hydro jet tool has quite an assortment of tips and heads, which are effective for the various materials that are producing the obstruction. Observe the position of the spray jets in the attached photo. Some are aimed ahead and others aimed to the rear. This design is going to do the loosening and clipping of obstructions from the front end as the head is moved forward into the pipes.
Then the rearward facing spray jets will propel and clear the water out so the cleaning can be much more productive. This rearwards action will wash out stacked up material from the clog and bottom of the pipeline, pushing it outward for future evacuation. The operator can manage the travel rate and distance of the nozzle thru the pipes.
In case you have a sewage system that is connected to the city sewer line structure, there are lateral pipelines that carry your sewage coming from household drains, showers and bathrooms. The high pressure jetting procedure can also be made use of to free and clean any obstruction between your residence and the community sewage system main line.
