Why Water Jetting Your Drain Isn’t a DIY Project, Norwalk, Connecticut

If your drains are clogged or water is moving slowly through your plumbing system, you may have a blockage. Hydro jetting, also known as water jetting, can be an effective solution for removing these issues, but it’s important that you leave this type of job to the professionals to ensure that it’s done safely and correctly.

What You Should Know About Hydro Jetting

What Is Hydro Jetting?

water jettingThe process of hydro or water jetting involves applying water pressure to clear clogs and blockages within pipes. Your plumber will insert a small hose into the pipe. That hose is connected to a large, pressurized water tank that can spray water at about 7,500 pounds per square inch of pressure. This not only breaks up and removes blockages, but it also scours the walls of your pipes to remove any buildups that contribute to clogging or water contamination.

Why Isn’t It a DIY Project?

Hydro jetting equipment is very powerful. When applied incorrectly, that high water pressure can potentially cause injury or break through your pipes. A professional drain cleaning service will know exactly what type of equipment is necessary for your job and have the skills to apply that water pressure in the correct area. Additionally, hydro jetting equipment can be expensive and complicated to set up and use. It’s actually more cost-effective and significantly less time-consuming to have a professional complete the job over buying a hydro jetter and attempting to figure it out on your own.
