Hydro Jetting is an amazing method to clean out a sewer or drain line. In Herndon Virginia you can count on us, Freedom Plumbers for this specialized plumbing repair. If you have never heard the term before, it pretty much explains the process.
We use pressurized water to blast out whatever is causing your drains to act up. But before we get to that we have to back up a little ways. Let’s assume your drains are not working the way they usually have in the past. Maybe they drain slowly. Maybe they emit sewer gases or maybe you have water pooling in places where water should not be found. These are all signs of sewer problems.
At Freedom Plumbers we have the tools to inspect and repair any of your problems. What we would do first is come out to your home and take a look at the signs you have that are telling you that there is a problem with your drains. Then we will conduct a pipe inspection. We use trenchless technologies which mean you won’t find a parade of large digging machines in and around your yard wrecking your landscaping and garden so we can get to your sewer pipe. Instead, you will find one or two small holes. These holes will be dug near the pipe connection locations.
Once we are able to access the pipe connections we insert a small video camera. The camera shows us exact what is going on inside your sewer line. We can find cracks, breaks, cave ins and clogs just by using the video camera and without the need to dig up your sewer line. In the case of a clog we will take a close look at what is causing it. Sometimes it is the result of organic material collecting over time. Sometimes something else has been accidently flushed through the system creating a clog. Other times it is a tree root that has grown through the sewer line.
This is where we will pull out the hydro jetting equipment and insert it into the sewer line we have already been able to access. For organic material clogs a quick blast is usually enough to send it down the system and flushing out your line. For tree roots, our high pressure water system is powerful enough to slice through a tree root like a hot knife through butter. Sometimes we may have to shoot more than a couple of blasts of high pressure water at the root but it can be removed just through hydro jetting.
Clogged drains are no fun. Especially if it turns into a slow draining tub or sink. You rely on these systems to work when you need them and when they don’t it becomes an inconvenience that can become bothersome. You can avoid this situation by having us come out and take a look at your underground system. If you have the signs of a clog developing in your sewer system, contact us at Freedom Plumbers.
