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.

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.

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.

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.

Acorn installed a new Regency gas fireplace in our home and we could not be happier with the result. The quote was provided quickly and James and Dong installed the fireplace without any issues and it looks beautiful. James took the time to fully explain how to use the remote control. Professional, respectful and friendly. Thanks for the great service.

Acorn was very accommodating with my appointment time and Jordan was great! He was professional and friendly, wore a mask the whole time and really knew what he was doing. He changed my kitchen sink drains and faucet promptly and cleaned everything up including the faucet box! I’d highly recommend Acorn to anyone!

Acorn' was the only plumbing company to suggest a simple and low cost repair option for a leaking City water main. The other companies all suggested very costly and complicated involving the installation of am entirely new water line. The technician from Acorn suggested a much simpler solution of cutting through the concrete slab and repairing the existing line. The repair work was skillfully completed in a couple hours at 15% of the lowest bid from the other companies. A special thanks to Jordan - he was just awesome - polite, very knowledgeable and superior communication skills. Thank you Jordan.

I can't say enough good things about them, from start to finish! They answered my query promptly, came when scheduled. The tech was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and did a thorough job. He found i had a small gas leak, and fixing the problem now saved a bigger hassle later. The needed part was available within days, and he returned with another wonderful tech to do the repair. All done before i need to turn it on for the season. I highly recommend them.

What a great professional company. Always had our plumber Jordan arrive on time & kept me in the loop the whole way. He was awesome taking care of our Strata complex problems. New issues continued to pop up & he just took them in stride & came up with a game plan & solution. No complaints & kept us all at ease knowing we were in good hands. Stayed late ensuring all owners had water each night (12 hours on day one) & I would recommend Acorn for any plumbing issues you may have. Ask for Jordan, we were lucky to get him & you won't be unhappy.Thanks Jordan for an excellent plumbing experience that would have been a nightmare for most.

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!

I had some obscure questions about a propane set up in my camper van and James was very helpful! He didn’t end up having the parts we needed but was able to point us in the right direction. Very professional business. I found them on google and was able to text them from the website with a question I had and they got right back to me which was great.
