Hydro jetting is a powerful and efficient method of cleaning clogged pipes and drains. A question that many homeowners have is how long the effects of hydro jetting will last. The answer depends on several factors, but in general, hydro jetting can provide long-term results when it’s performed by a professional rooter company and when the underlying causes of the clogs are addressed.
First, it’s important to understand what hydro jetting is and how it works. Hydro jetting is a process in which high-pressure water is sent through a nozzle and into your blocked pipes. The water is powerful enough to remove even the toughest clogs, including grease, sludge, and debris. This method is a great alternative to traditional pipe snaking, which can often only scratch the surface of a clog, rather than fully remove it.
The longevity of the results from hydro jetting depends on the type of blockage and the condition of the pipes.
For example, if the clog is caused by grease buildup, hydro jetting can be effective in removing the grease and preventing future clogs. However, if the clog is caused by tree roots growing into the pipes, hydro jetting can only remove the roots that are currently causing the clog. In order to prevent future clogs, the underlying issue must be fixed by cutting down the trees or installing a root barrier.
If the pipes are old or damaged, they may not be able to withstand the high-pressure water used in hydro jetting. In these cases, hydro jetting may only provide temporary relief and the pipes may need to be replaced entirely. Be sure to ask your rooter specialist to conduct an assessment on the pipes if you are concerned.
To ensure the best possible results from hydro jetting, it’s important to have the work done by a professional plumber with experience in hydro jetting. They will be able to assess the condition of the pipes and the cause of the clog and recommend the best course of action. They will also be able to perform the hydro jetting with the right equipment and techniques, ensuring that the clog is fully removed, and the pipes are not damaged in the process.
It’s important to note that regular maintenance of your pipes and drains can help to prolong the effects of hydro jetting. This may include regular hydro jetting to remove any new clogs that may develop, as well as the implementation of preventative measures such as:
Grease, fats, and oils can often be common factors causing blockages in your home’s pipes. A grease trap is a useful plumbing tool used for preventing these substances from entering the sewer lines and drain pipes.
