High Pressure Water Jetting
Jetting is an alternative to cable cleaning sewer and drain lines. In some cases, it is a necessity to properly clean a line.
The jetter shoots fine streams of water through a nozzle at very high pressures to cut through grease, sludge, scale, or even roots and flush it out of the line. The result is a spotless drain line even with copious amounts of buildup in the line to begin with.
Cable machines are used to remove tree roots and break through solid obstructions. They are, however, less effective in removing softer blockages such as grease, scale and other buildup. Cable machines will bore holes through sludge but they can't clean and push the debris out of pipes as effectively as water jet machines.
What is water jetting?
High-pressure water jetting is an efficient, economical, and environmentally safe way to clean drain and sewer pipes. Using state-of-the-art pumps and flexible hoses, ordinary water is propelled under varying amounts of pressure into the sewer line. A special nozzle mounted on the end of a heavy-duty hose has an array of forward and reverse water jets, which direct extremely powerful concentrated streams of water all the way to the pipe walls. Even the toughest blockages and buildup can’t stand up to water jet cutting, which thoroughly cleans pipes.
Regular water jet maintenance keeps drain lines flowing
Restaurants and other commercial establishments typically require frequent high-pressure water jetting to remove mineral deposits, grease buildup, sludge and debris that accumulate in the lines. Clogs can cause down time, and down time in any industry means lost customers and revenue.
Some businesses may require just one or two cleanings annually, while others benefit from monthly or quarterly cleanings. That's why many of our customers prefer to set up a scheduled program for water jetting service that keeps their drains flowing freely. A Roto-Rooter professional can recommend a jetting service schedule that best meets the needs of your business.
Water jet machine service means cleaner pipes, which means fewer service calls, less down time, overall cost savings and one less thing for you to worry about.
