Hydro Jetting in Woodland Hills

Having drainage issues with your sewer line? Before you opt for pipe replacement or other major work, you may want to consider hydro jetting first. This relatively simple process can clear debris in your sewer line and get your water draining properly again.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting uses a high-powered hose to scrub debris from the inside of your pipes. The device consists of a special hose that is equipped with a high-strength nozzle. It is also attached to a machine that pressurizes the water. The water stream produced can be pressurized up to 3,500 psi and flow at a rate of 18 gallons per minute. If you have a stubborn clog in your sewer line, call the professionals at Mike Stern Plumber in Woodland Hills. We can get your pipes cleared out in no time.

How Hydro Jetting Works

Your pipes are accessed via a clean out, an opening along the pipe that can be used to snake out an obstruction. Unlike a snake however, hydro jetting is capable of removing even the toughest obstructions. The hydro jetter is inserted pointing upstream, back toward your building. This way, any debris that is knocked loose can drain back down toward the street. The powerful stream of water created by these machines is capable of clearing several hundred feet of pipe, meaning you can be sure to clear most any obstruction.

The major exception is tree root infiltration. Roots that have entered your sewer line and become thick enough to block the flow of water may not respond to hydro jetting. In some cases, they can be cleared using this method. But, if they have damaged the waterproof lining of your pipes, the best way to treat roots may be with a complete sewer line replacement. Using a special camera, our experienced technicians can determine the best course of action for you. Hydro jetting is also necessary before pipe lining to clear debris and ensure a smooth contact surface for the epoxy.
