After locating an obstruction using visual inspection or by using a flexible video digicam, a decision needs to be made about what process to apply to clear the pipeline. Of course, the home-owner would certainly have a preference for a repair that does not require digging up their lawn.
One method that is becoming quite popular is to make use of high pressure water in order to unclog and also clean the sewer blockage. This is a service called hydro-jetting. In most cases, the fix and cleaning can be finished with only just a minimal amount of digging into the property. The Hydro Jetter uses high pressure water spray to cut through sludge, grease, paper clogs, roots and various other materials that slow down free flowing liquids inside your septic lines.
The hydro jetting process is better in many aspects compared to the past mechanical methods for pipeline cleaning. The tool does not need strong manual manipulation that can further damage to the pipes and joints.
The hydro jetter comes with quite a selection of tips and heads that are designed specifically for the various materials that are creating the obstruction. Notice the position of the spray jets in the added image. Some are directed ahead, and some others directed to the back.
This form is going to do the loosening and cutting of obstructions through the front end as the head is pushed forward inside the pipes. Then the back facing spray jets will propel and clear the water out so the clearing will be more complete and effective. This rearward action will rinse stacked up substance coming from the lowest part of the line, moving it out for later removal. The operator can manipulate the travel rate and extent of the nozzle thru the pipes.
Whenever you have a sewage system which is attached to the city sewer line network, there are lateral lines which transport your sewage coming from home drains, showers and commodes. The very high pressure jetting process could also be used to clear and clean virtually any obstacle between your house and the municipal sewer main line.
