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.

We had Harman come to do boiler servicing. He was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. He took the time to explain everything he did for the servicing of the boiler. He showed me pictures of a part that needed to be replaced and gave me explanations of what it did. He even called back and told my husband everything as well which I appreciated (I would not be able to explain it to the same level).We couldn’t be happier with the service and expertise from Acorn. Every technician that has ever come to the house has been fantastic and they always take the time to explain any issues if they are found. The company is great and we will continue to use them for our heating and cooling systems.

I had an outstanding experience with Acorn Heat and would highly recommend their services. The technician, Adam, was not only prompt and kind but also incredibly thorough in explaining the intricacies of my gas fireplace. His expertise and good humor made the experience enjoyable, and he efficiently identified and replaced the required part. What set Acorn Heat apart was their commitment to excellence – not only did Adam fix the issue, but he also went the extra mile to clean both the fireplace and its surroundings. The communication from the office was top-notch, and Adam's timely arrival, coupled with a pre-arrival phone call, demonstrated a high level of professionalism. If you're seeking reliable and customer-focused fireplace services, Acorn Heat is the way to go.

My furnace broke down during one of the coldest days a little while ago and I reached out to Acorn service group. From the first call, they were professional, understanding, and courteous. She arranged a technician visit the next day and I found out my furnace was beyond repair and a new one would need to be replaced immediately. He booked me in for a new replacement a couple of days later. On the day of replacement, two technicians showed up early in the morning and they went to work through the whole day taking apart the old system and replacing a new high efficiency furnace. They were friendly, professional and courteous throughout the process. they were careful with my house, my belongings, they placed drop-clothes on the hallway and they kept me updated every step of the way. Before they left, they cleaned the entire job site from inside the crawl space, the hallway and the drive way. I was most impressed.Even after the furnace replacement, Acorn provided me with copy of invoice, service agreement, gas permit, and all warranty papers. They even helped me apply for the Fortis Gas rebate. The entire experience has been incredible from the first phone call. Although it was a stressful situation, Acorn had made the replacement seamless and hassle free. I was so grateful to come back to a warm home again. I couldn't have recommended Acorn Service Group more.Margaret

I had a main sewer line plug, so after looking at reviews online about Acorn Plumbing I decided to contact them. From the first phone call with Nolan (who was very polite and helpful) and also the young lady.....(also very polite and pleasant) that called the next day to give me the heads up on when the technician was coming to the house, all really good. The Tech that showed up was Nick and was he ever knowledgeable, polite and a good worker.... got the job done professionally and in a timely manner....Nick is a good reflection of the company for sure. I am one happy customer.......Thanks guys!!!!
