How Hydro Jetting Works

A blocked sewer line can cause tremendous stress for a homeowner or business owner. Hydro jetting is one of the quickest methods for clearing blockages and restoring water flow, but as with any professional service, it requires a careful approach and the expertise of pipe repair specialists in Las Vegas, NV.

Hydro jetting is the process of drain cleaning in Las Vegas, NV, that uses highly pressurized water to clear out pipes. It requires a special hose with a targeted spraying head along with a large water tank. At Specialized Pipe Technologies, we typically work from a sewer clean-out, sending water back through pipes towards the point of entry. The water breaks through grease, small tree roots, mineral build-up, and other debris, allowing it to wash out to the sewer system.

Is Hydro Jetting an Option for You?

Generally, hydro jetting is a more effective and comprehensive form of drain cleaning services in Las Vegas, NV, than augers, snakes, or chemical treatments, particularly when a plumbing or sewer line has extensive build-up. Most properties are candidates for hydro jetting.

However, we will consider various factors before starting the work including the age of the sewer lines, the pipe materials, and the extent of the clogged drain in Las Vegas, NV. If pipes have sustained serious damage from the clog, they may need to be repaired before or after hydro jetting. As high-pressure water can damage some pipes, hydro jetting should only be performed by an experienced team.

Specialized Pipe Technologies will perform visual inspections using sewer cameras and other diagnostic technologies in order to carry out the process as safely as possible. As with all of our services, our drain cleaning company in Las Vegas, NV, will prioritize our customers and go to great lengths to minimize downtime. Most importantly, we have over 25 years of experience, and our team understands how to carry out hydro jetting services without risking additional pipe damage.
