HYDRO JETTING

And do I need it?

In any type of plumbing system, grease and sediment accumulation is completely normal, especially in the low points of the drainage line.

To avoid blocked clogs, we offer power flushing and hydro flushing services. These will keep your drainage lines clean and greatly reduce the likelihood of a full-system block-up or slowed drain. We also use down-drain cameras to see firsthand how clean the lines are after a cleaning is performed. This is effective for many types of drain lines including sanitary lines, storm lines, catch basins and sumps.

Perimeter drains can also be hydro jetted. Do you have standing water near your home? Or do you have concerns about water leaking through your foundation. Often your perimeter drain is also full of debris or sludge. We can camera the line to assess and hydrojet to clear the perimeter so water flows away from your home.

HYDRO JETTING EXPLAINED

You are probably asking yourself what hydro-jetting is and what it can do for you. If you have noticed clogs or other problems with your plumbing that keep recurring, hydro jetting may be a solution. Sometimes, as time goes on, sludge can build up inside your pipes and create problems. Sometimes a drain can be unclogged but the sludge remains in place, which will create blockages in the future.

GETTING THE JOB DONE

Hydro jetting is a way to clean your drains to ensure there are no issues. A hydro jetter sprays pressurized water into your drains to remove anything that could block the flow of water. Hydro jetting could be the perfect solution for your problem.

Hydro Jetter

ELIMINATE THE CLOG

The process of removing buildup involves working with gravity. As the water scours the pipes, the debris that's dislodged then moves down, with gravity, safely flushing the debris out of the system.

Blocks can build up over time or be caused by an object being put down a drain. In either case, having the pipe fully cleared ensures your plumbing is working properly in your home, avoiding ongoing problems, mess, or insurance claims!

PRECAUTIONS

In most cases, hydro jetting is a safe way to remove blockages that cause clogging. However, it is possible to cause further problems if hydro jetting is done in sewer lines where tree-root penetration is significant.

CAMERA INSPECTION

Inspecting the plumbing system and the sewer lines to assess the root of the problem before implementing any solution is recommended.

Also recommended is a camera inspection after cleaning out plumbing pipes to show the effectiveness of the hydrojetting, and the general condition of the pipes.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST

Your drain clearing cost will depend on:

  • Location of the clog. Clogs in the main sewer line cost more to clear than ones in secondary drain lines because clogs in the mainline are more difficult to reach and affect more than one plumbing fixture.
  • Accessibility of your plumbing cleanout. The harder your cleanout is to reach, the more you’ll pay in labour costs. Cleanouts located outside your home will be easier to access than ones inside it.
  • Video camera inspection. A camera inspection increases the price upfront, but can save your plumber a lot of time in clearing the clog.
  • Severity of the clog. Depending on what’s clogging your drain, a plumber will use either a drain cleaning cable machine (less expensive) or a hydro jetting machine (more expensive) to clear it.

Harman was courteous, explained and showed me what was the problem with the furnace so I could see clearly and understand what was causing the furnace not to work. He showed me options on what I could do.The next day Curtis and Maclaren arrived promptly and set down cloths so the area was kept clean. They were both polite and informative. I appreciated the thorough explanation of what was done in installing the new furnace. They went beyond what was expected and got my two gas fireplaces working and showed me how to avoid problems in the future. I sincerely appreciated their help with this. I would highly recommend using Acorn in the future to anyone.

Both Jamie for the Furnace check up & Nick for the water & plumbing inspection were great. Both were respectful & super knowledgeable and answered all my questions promptly along with a few suggestions as to what to do as maintenance etc. Nick noticed a few hot water valves had slow drips due to old age & that my hot water tank was due to be changed. He gave me a quote for a new one.Please transmit my many thanks to both of them.Cheers…. Yvon

I just want to pass on my experience with Acorn’s crew of young men that came to fix my water issue.It was a complicated issue, with them having to dig up a portion of my lawn and flower bed. They were so careful and took great pains to put things back to the way they were after they were done. They were so professional and polite! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Acorn service group came out to install a new combi unit (hot water on demand and boiler). The team here was awesome. They were so great about removal of old unit (our house is an old renovated cottage) the boiler was the last item. Kyle who arrived with his right hand guy was so professional and did a great job. Definitely give them a call I would in a minute use them again. Thank you Acorn, we now has a little more space in our laundry room…..

We had great service from Harman our Acorn service technician.  He was professional, on time, very courteous and efficient.Harman was thorough in his approach in troubleshooting our boiler problem. He did not hesitate to reach out to the manufacturer for additional technical support as he worked to diagnose the problem and then fix it.  We would recommend Harmon and are most appreciative of the great service that he has given us.

The Acorn technician who did the yearly inspection on my new furnace and air conditioner was professional and personable. He was able to show and explain what was happening with my furnace and even took the time to set up my thermostat even better than previously. I felt it was a good value to have my furnace serviced by Acorn and set up the next year appointment on the spot. My house feels very comfortable now with my new HVAC and I know it is supported by a good team at Acorn.

Curtis & Wes installed a new furnace for us late last week. Highly impressed with their work and attention to detail. They spent almost the entire day, installing and fitting new ducting to make sure the furnace looked great and was sealed properly. They even went above and beyond, installing a neutralizer that wasn't there previously, but was required to bring the system to code. After the job was done, the work area and pathways to it were spotless - you could barely tell anyone had been there in the first place. Highly recommend.
