Have you heard about the awesome service called hydrojetting? While not every plumber offers this incredible option to customers, some do, and it is one of the best advancements in residential plumbing that has happened in a long time. But what is it correctly, and what should you know before requesting service from your plumber Los Angeles?
Hydrojetting uses pressurized water to strip away dirt, debris, and grease that lines your home’s plumbing pipes. Consider the service like a colonic but for your home. Actually, that is an excellent comparison because a colonic helps your body function more effectively and allows waste to pass through without issues. Hydrojetting has the same principle. When you eliminate all the caked-on debris that has accumulated over the years, the flow of your water will improve.
It’s important to know that this service isn’t the same thing as snaking the drain. With drain cleaning services, only the immediate clog is fixed. This means if there were something stuck in the pipe, the plumber would situation the line in the fixture that isn’t working to clear the problem. This process doesn’t take very long to complete and can resolve the current drain issue.
Hydrojetting goes way beyond drain clearing; it can potentially help to prevent clogs from happening for a year. The problem with drains is the amount of oil and debris that goes through them. The oil will stick to the lining of the pipe. From here, the oil will grab on to anything it can, accumulating a large amount of gunk. This mass will start to make the tubes narrower until it eventually blocks the flow of water. Hydrojetting gets rid of everything, making the pipe almost like new.
When Should You Consider a Hydrojetting Service?
Hydrojetting is a perfect service for any property that is experiencing constant clog issues. It isn’t the best service, however, for homes that have a septic service, as it can mess with the septic tank and cause problems. But for homes that use a city sewer system, that has never had the service before, and their home is over ten years old, hydrojetting can be an excellent option to upgrade too. During a service call, you can request hydrojetting, or you can schedule an appointment for one during regular business hours.
Hydrojetting is slightly more expensive than a drain clearing, but it is worth the cost as you won’t have to worry about a clog for a while, if you are using good practices for your home and not sending objects down the drain that shouldn’t.
