Sewer jetting or Hydro jetting is the application of streams of high-pressure water for to clean and remove debris from inside pipes. Water at very high pressure can cut roots, dissolve blockages, emulsify grease and soaps and spray wash clean the wall surfaces of sewer and drain pipes.
It also washes away accumulated debris on the bottom of the pipe. Sewer jetting can also be effective in resolving odor issues in drains with heavy debris or grease build-up.
A jetting nozzle is attached to the end of a length of high-pressure hose. The other end of the hose is connected to a high-pressure water pump. The jetting nozzle has small precision-machined orifices or jets that restrict water flow from the jetting pump causing high pressure to build within hose. As the pressurized water is expelled from the nozzle jets it creates thrust that allows the nozzle to pull the jetting hose through the pipe. Our plumbing technician controls the travel speed and distance of the nozzle as it travels up the pipe. The pressurized water expelled from the nozzle jets washes away debris and removes blockages or roots from the inside of the pipe. The highest level of cleaning occurs when the hose is being rewound onto the reel. This is when water from the nozzle jets form a wall of high-pressure water that forces (rakes) the debris downstream. Sewer jetting technology can be applied to clean all sizes of pipes. The most common uses of a hydro-jet machine is to clean drains as well as sanitary and storm sewer laterals.
