Drain pipes get dirty. Over time, that dirt becomes a layer of film that becomes builds-up. Those build-ups lead to clogs and can lead to the pipe being completely blocked up from it scaling over. Unless you run a camera or scope down into your drain lines, there is no way to see what is going on in there. But some warning signs to look out for would be:
- Drains run slow and/or bubbles come up while it is going slow
- Constant backups where water flows back up into a sink, toilet, or shower
- Bad smell – this can present as either a musty/moldy smell or a sewage odor
- You have tried to clear the drain yourself and nothing changes or there is only a slight improvement
And that is where hydro jetting comes in. Once the hydro jet is in place and turned on, a stream of hot water is fired into the drain lines. We should note, that the stream of water is actually an extremely high-pressure jet that starts at 1,200 PSI (pounds per square inch). And just in case we come equipt with heavy machinery.
