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.

Plumbing and HVAC-This is a very reliable, skilled and professional company. Jordan, who came out for both jobs, was really a delight to work with. Even the dispatcher and the manager who spoke with me on the phone to figure out how best to serve me were delightful. It is rare to fine such a great company to work with. We will definitely use Acorn again for any HVAC or plumbing issues going forward. I highly recommend them if you want your work done promptly, professionally and pleasantly! 100 percent!

We recently had Keltie in to replace a couple of plumbing fixtures and give our kitchen and bathroom some long-overdue attention. She was fabulous. Fastidiously clean, knowledgeable about our mid-70's house's quirks and a gem to have in our home. Totally pleased with the service and result. We've used Acorn in the past for a new furnace, hot-water tank and upgraded fireplace insert, and have only experienced exceptional professional performance. We are fortunate to have local craftspeople who are obviously invested in such a high standard of service. Doing it right.

We had our furnace and a/c unit installed last year and are very happy with them both. Also had a gas fireplace done, which is great too! This time, it was annual maintenance (thanks for the reminder) and all was handled well. Always great customer service and lots of help and advice! They go above and beyond. Thanks!

We’ve used Acorn twice now. First to replace our furnace, and again to replace our hot water tank and install a gas line outside for our barbecue. Everyone we ever deal with are so professional and the quality of workmanship is excellent. I love how they never cut corners to make it easier for themselves, they go the extra mile to make their work as good as they can.Highly recommended

I recently moved into a new home and had a plumbing issue I needed help with. Acorn set up an appointment super quickly. Tiffany booked the appointment and was very pleasant she was so happy on the phone she brightened my day and even welcomed me into the neighborhood.The day of my appointment they called me an hour before the plumber arrived which I was very thankful for because I was nervous to take a shower in case they arrived while I was in there. Lol which is always my luck.The plumber showed up an hour later, just like they said, and I was extremely happy to see she was a female. Keltie was great to deal with, she was happy, friendly, knowledgeable and even told me it was okay to let my two dogs out of the bedroom as she is a dog person. Fonzi and Harlow thoroughly enjoyed that.Thank you again for your expert and professional service. Highly recommend and proud to support again.

My heating furnace flamed out feb 2021 at the peak of cold wave. I contacted Acorn service group. The lady dispatcher was very friendly. Took my information and assured me inspite of being busy will send a technician as soon as they can. Technician came and diagnosed the issue and gave me estimate to replace parts. Their estimate is very reasonable. I know that because I enquired around to know what are costs of replacing cost. I believe their estimate is honest one.They promptly followed up next day replaced parts and got my heating furnace working.Great work by two young technicians Taylor and Kyle. Technicians were friendly and did great job. Overall I am happy with their work and will definitely recommend them.

I used Acorn to do a full mechanical room upgrade in our house when we bought it. Shawn Tolvin was assigned to us and I cannot say enough good things about him. He’s caring, diligent, resourceful and so customer service oriented that he’ll get his hands dirty himself if needed. I needed an issue repaired and we had 3 tech visits before I called him directly. He was at my house within a couple of hours and fixed the issue himself (in his dress clothes I may add). He’s everything you want in a customer service experience. He keeps me coming back!

Acorn has installed a Daikin heat pump with ductless splits as well as replaced a Navien tankless water heater at my home. In each case their staff were responsive, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The jobs were done with great care, impeccable workmanship with great attention to detail. I would highly recommend Acorn!

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.
