How Does Water Jetting Work?
The high-pressure water jetter pump delivers the powerful jets of water required to properly clean drain and pipe blockages. A high-pressure hose is wound onto a reel enabling the licenced professional to retract the hose. The high pressure water erodes most materials, including heavy grease and fat deposits and has a greater reach than conventional drain machines. If a drain is not fully cleaned, including the walls of the drain, simply flushing out a drain will not be enough. It is necessary to completely clean a drain to prevent future obstacles from having something to latch onto. Once a drain has been thoroughly cleaned, Mr Plumber will investigate to find out if other obstacles are present, such as cracks or tree roots. If a problem is found, Mr Plumber is experienced to provide you with a strategic plan to permanently resolve the problem.
Benefits of Water Jetting
It can be tempting to reach for aggressive or corrosive as acids/chemical cleaners which can causes damage to pipes/drains. However, water jetting uses high pressure water, instead of chemicals. A water jetter or sewer jetter jetter has greater reach than conventional drain machines. Drain machines primarily remove the actual blockage, while a water jetter is does a more comprehensive job by cleaning the walls of the drain also. Standard store bought machines may help to temporarily get a drain flowing but will often not address the root cause. In addition, non-commercial machines may not have the power to properly clean the walls of drains and pipes, which can result in unnecessary expenses and constant cleaning. Call Mr Plumber to have your drains diagnoses with CCTV and cleaned properly and permanently.
Causes of Blockages
Drain blockages can occur for a variety of reasons and the cause of the blockage depends on where the water is flowing from. Kitchen drains can often fill pipes with fats, oils and grease, while bathroom drains tend to become blocked by hair. Using both our high-pressure water jetter and CCTV cameras we are able to pinpoint the cause of the blockage and take the appropriate steps to remove it.
Tips on How to Prevent Blockages
Bathrooms: A simple hair catcher/stopper over the shower drain will prevent hair from clogging the popes over time.
Kitchens: Collect fats and grease out of pans before washing them. Over time fats, oils and grease can build up and severely block drains.
Toilets: Do not flush things that don’t break down such as wet wipes or paper towel. They are notorious for blocking pipes and even sewers.
