Hydro jetting uses highly pressurized water (up to 4000 PSI) to break up and remove grease, sludge, and even tree roots from sewer drainage pipes. Water this pressurized can clear away just about any obstruction. Think of hydro jetting as pressure washing for the inside of your pipes – only more powerful.
The hydro jetting system consists of a hose, nozzle, and a machine that creates the water pressure. Oh, and the water. Hydro jetting doesn’t use any chemicals, just a lot of water.
Prior to hydro jetting, MJ Minor will do an inspection to make sure your pipe is in good condition. This is because water under high pressure can damage frail, older pipes. We will also make sure your drainage pipe isn’t collapsed instead of clogged. If it is, no amount of hydro jetting will fix it. The pipe will need to be replaced instead.
MJ Minor accesses the pipe via a “cleanout.” This is a section of pipe with a cap on it that provides easy access to your drainage system. The nozzle and hose are inserted into the pipe via the cleanout and whenever the nozzle encounters an obstruction, the jetting system shoots pressurized water at it until it breaks up and washes away.
As an experienced hydro jetting contractor, MJ Minor will know the precise amount of water pressure necessary to break up and dislodge obstructions without damaging the pipe. This is why hydro jetting is not a “Do It Yourself” project.
