Leaves are dropping from the trees, the temperature is cooling, and fall is officially here. Now is the time to get your home ready for the harsh conditions of winter. Maintenance needs to be scheduled and taken care of before the freeze hits in order to protect your home. One important maintenance project that you should be sure not to overlook is having your plumbing system cleaned. Over time, the pipes in your home build up debris. This not only makes your plumbing system work harder to deliver water throughout your home, but it can put your pipes at risk for damage that can causes leaks and burst. Having your pipes hydro jetted is the best way to prepare them for the stress they’ll face during the winter months.
Hydro jetting is the most effective and efficient way to have your pipes cleaned for many reasons.
Hydro jetting means that water is blasted through your pipes to clear out any debris and wash it away. With the high-pressure water that hydro jetting uses, you can blast away any partial or even total clogs that are stuck in your pipes.
If you have your pipes snaked, it should clear clogs away. But it ignores a factor that leads to more frequent clogging, the pipe walls. The walls of your pipes are where clogs generally start. Debris builds up on the walls and thins the area that potential clogs can pass through. Hydro jetting will completely clean your pipe walls, not just the clogs that already exist.
You can use drain cleaning solutions like Drano to clean your pipes, but it’s much better to have them hydro jetted. Drain cleaning chemicals are not only less effective, but they are harsh and cause pollution.
Another problem with drain cleaning solutions is that they can corrode your pipes, weaking them and making them more susceptible to cracks. Hydro jetting only uses regular water, which your pipes are equipped to handle without corroding.
If you’ve got cracks or possible leaks in your pipes, they might be clogged up with the debris on the pipe walls so you wouldn’t even notice until it’s too late. But since hydro jetting cleans the pipe walls, the camera inspection afterward will allow your plumber to catch any possible cracks.
Hydro jetting is efficient, it doesn’t take long to blast away debris. This means that you’ll be able to use your plumbing much sooner than with most pipe cleaning methods.
