Drain jetting uses high pressure water jets to remove blockages, get rid of build-up of debris, fats, oils, and grease to maintain a healthy drainage system.
Yes. Jetting is a versatile technique. If you have internal pipes, like a waste pipe or a sink, that have become blocked then jetting is a simple solution to the problem. As a drain unblocking method, jetting will not only clear the blockage but also clean the pipe. Likewise, jetting can be used on outdoor drains or manholes to help clear them of build up or debris. Indoor or out, jetting can help solve any blockage.
Every drainage system is different, from food factories to domestic properties, all carrying different types and amounts of waste. Get in touch and we can individually tailor a service to suit your needs.
High pressure drain jetting, or water jetting, is conducted by placing a high pressure hose into the offending drain. Water is then pumped down the hose from a self-contained jetting machine, creating a stream of water that is powerful enough to break down any congestion in the pipes. The pressurised water, contained within the pipes, creates a force that can break obstructions into smaller pieces, and push them through the drain or sewer. This leaves the drain clean and helps maintain it for future use.
It is an unfortunate fact of life that sometimes drains get blocked. Although this can be due to external factors, such as damaged pipes or unwanted intrusions, the majority of the time drains get blocked due to substance build up on the inside of the drain. This could be for any number of reasons, including the build-up of fats, oils or grease and non-flushable items such as wipes.
There are several core signs to look out for with blocked drains. These include:
- Toilets rising to the top or slowly draining when you flush
- Sinks and bathroom facilities draining slowly
- Bad smells coming from your drains or around your property
- Plugholes gargling when draining
- High water levels or flooding from gullies or around manholes
High pressure water jetting can also be used as a method of maintaining drains to ensure they remain free from obstruction. Regular jetting and pre-planned maintenance (PPM), can protect pipes and remove excess residue, preventing build up and future blockages.
