A Guide to Water Jetting for Clearing Clogged Drains, Norwalk, Connecticut

Clogged drains can be troublesome for homeowners and businesses. They can lead to backups, slow draining issues, or water damage around your property. Water jetting is a tactic you might consider to clear out clogged drains and get your plumbing system back into shape. Here’s more information if you’re unfamiliar with this technique, or if you have concerns about how it might impact your pipes.

What You Should Know About Water Jetting

How It Works

A small water hose is fed into your drain pipe toward the location of the blockage or obstruction. Water is shot out at a high rate of pressure to push the blockage through the plumbing system, exposing clean pipes and allowing water to move through freely.

How It Cleans Clogged Pipes

Concerns About Pipe Damage

A common concern that property owners have is that water jetting could damage pipes due to the high water pressure used to clear clogs. In extreme circumstances where the pipe is already weakened or damaged, the increased water pressure could potentially be harmful. However, your plumbing contractor should perform an inspection beforehand to find the clog and evaluate the condition of your pipes. If they determine that water jetting is a viable option, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
