Hydrojet Root Removal: Key to Clear and Healthy Sewer Lines

Jul 30, 2023 | Hydro Jetting

Hydro Jet Root Removal is safe and affordable

If you’ve never witnessed the incredible spectacle of hydro jet sewer cleaning, you’re in for a treat. Now, no more sight of gunk, grime, tree roots, and grease as they are forcefully flushed out of your sewer lines, leaving them squeaky clean.

Unlike traditional plumbing snakes, hydro jet sewer cleaning tackles stubborn blockages, and the main line clogs effortlessly. Curious to learn more about this extraordinary technique? Join us as we delve into the inner workings of hydro jets and discover when it’s time to schedule this exceptional service.

How Water Jet Sewer Cleaning Works?

The hydrojet root removal technique uses high-pressure water to break up and eliminate debris from your sewer lines. Think of a machine pressuring water up to 3,500 to 4,000 psi, creating a force capable of removing even the toughest blockages. While it may not cut through steel like some industrial applications, it’s enough to tackle the buildup in your pipes.

Equipped with a specialized nozzle, the hydro jet sewer cleaning machine guides a hose through the pipe, breaking up debris in its path. The nozzle features a forward-facing jet that creates a hole through the obstructions, while the multiple rear-facing jets propel the nozzle forward and wash away the loosened debris.

When cleaning a main sewer line, the process starts from the lower end and moves toward the building. This strategic approach ensures that blockages are flushed into larger pipes, leading away from your property and toward the city.

The hydro jet begins its cleaning journey from the septic tank opening for systems with septic tanks. Video inspection may be included to assess the situation and determine the most effective technique, providing a clear view of the blockage and the best course of action.

How Do I Know If There Are Roots in My Sewer Line?

Detecting the presence of roots in your sewer line requires keen observation and awareness. While it may take years for the signs to manifest, being able to identify the following symptoms can help you determine if roots have infiltrated your sewer line:

Mysterious odors around the exterior of your home

If you notice an unpleasant smell reminiscent of rotten eggs lingering in specific areas outside your house, it could clearly indicate a clogged sewer line caused by invading tree roots.

Gurgling toilets

When your toilets emit unusual gurgling sounds, it’s a signal that water flow is being disrupted. This disruption may be attributed to roots obstructing the proper drainage and causing air bubbles within the plumbing system.

Sinkholes appearing in your backyard

Sinkholes indicate that the roots from surrounding trees have found their way into your sewer line. The relentless growth and expansion of these roots can compromise the structural integrity of the pipes, leading to the formation of sinkholes in your yard. (1)

Abnormal tree growth and health

Observe your trees closely, paying attention to any changes in growth patterns and overall health. Suppose you notice that one particular tree stands out with exceptionally vibrant foliage or rapid growth compared to others in your vicinity. In that case, its roots may have tapped into the nutrient-rich water supply of your sewer line.

Benefits of Hydro-Jet Cleaning

The force behind the water jet is simply awe-inspiring. It bulldozes through any debris that dares to obstruct your pipes, whether it’s greasy buildup, tangled hair, soapy residue, gritty sand, mineral deposits, or invasive tree roots. Nothing stands a chance against the mighty Hydro-jetting!

Just imagine the crystal-clear inner surface of your pipes once the Hydro-jetting process is complete.

It’s a restoration of flow, allowing your plumbing to operate at its optimal best.

Doesn’t use chemical drain cleaners

With Hydro jets, there’s no need to introduce any additional chemicals into your sewer pipes. You can bid farewell to concerns about the potential damage that drain chemicals can inflict on your precious sewer lines—no more worry about harmful substances seeping into the environment and causing unintended consequences.

Hydro jets ensure a safe and eco-friendly approach to sewer line cleaning when you utilize the pure force of water. After the process, the only thing flowing through your pipes is the cleansing power of water, leaving no trace of harmful chemicals behind. (2)

Optimal mobility

When it comes to older structures and their delicate pipes, caution is of utmost importance. Opening up these pipes for cleaning can be risky, as they may be brittle and unstable, leading to costly repairs for any damages incurred.

The water hose of the Hydro jet machine enters the pipes directly, eliminating the need to open them up. With its powerful force, the Hydro jet can navigate through even the most challenging and hard-to-reach spots, ensuring a thorough cleaning without compromising the integrity of your pipes.

As the water is directed through the pipes, it dislodges and flushes out the roots, restoring proper flow and functionality to your plumbing system. Hydro jetting is a reliable method for eliminating roots and ensuring your pipes remain clear and free from obstructions.

Does using a jetter clean out the roots of a mainline?
