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.
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!
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.
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.
