Many of the tried and true methods of cleaning clogged drains have been in use for decades now. The Pipe Surgeon has had great success freeing up blockages with the use of a snake tool, chemicals, or even just good old fashioned hot water. Interesting enough, there is a method for drain cleaning and unclogging that is gaining a lot of popularity in the industry – the use of a waterjet.
It makes sense really, use high pressured water to free up and clean out pipes. After all, your home’s plumbing is designed for water in the first place. A waterjet is much safer than using chemicals that may cause damage to pipes, fittings, and other plumbing components. Here is what waterjet use is specifically and some of my most common uses for the service:
1. What is it? – with pumps and hoses water is pressure fed through your home’s plumbing. Special nozzles and pressure adjustments can be used depending on the complexity of the job.
2. What does it Do? – water jets are used to penetrate grease, break up sludge, cut out hardened scale and even break apart tree roots. It also by proxy flushes out the system.
The Pipe Surgeon is one of few plumbing specialists using the water jet in the surrounding Saugus area. Please give me a call for more information about this amazing service.
