What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is process that utilizes highly pressurized water to blast away waste that has clung to the inside of the drain. This is done with a simple hose, a multi-directional nozzle, and a water tank. It’s a simple process that doesn’t interrupt your day. To start, the technician inserts the hose and the nozzle into an existing access point. The nozzle surface is made up of small holes that allow the water to blast out in 360 degrees. This allows the cleaning to be performed even in hard to reach places, like bends or angled areas. The water tank pressurizes the water to about 4000 PSI, which gives it the force to punch through even the most of stubborn clogs.
Benefits of Hydro Jetting in Harrisonburg
Because hydro jetting relies solely on water, it is environmentally friendly and safe for your home. Most home remedies for clogs require harsh chemicals. Sodium hydroxide and lye are often involved, and these can be hazardous to your health. It is also possible for the chemicals to leak out and come into contact with the ground or ground water. This could cause additional damage. Thankfully, hydro jetting avoids the use of the chemicals.
Hydro jetting can also help restore your drain its original diameter, which could impact your water flow. As the drain narrows from sticky debris, less water is able to pass through and you may notice a weak water pressure. Having this cleaned out helps restore the water flow, but also helps prevent the clogs from immediately building back up.
