Why you should call a plumber with a jet blaster for blocked drains
What is jet blasting and how does it work?
Jet blasting is the latest, most innovative and specialised technique currently on the market for cleaning clogged drains, sewers and stormwater pipes. The machine includes a long reaching, flexible hose that can up to 5000psi of water. It is designed to pass through drain elbows and is suitable for all types of pipes sizes and difficult to reach pipes.
A range of different nozzle heads can be fitted to the hose, depending on the kind of blockage being cleared. Some nozzles are capable of cutting through tree root infestations while others a suited for blasting the pipes free from a build-up of grease, sludge, sanitary items or clumps of wet-wipes. The back-firing jet nozzle propels the hose along the inside of the pipes, scrubbing the walls clean and removing virtually all traces of sediment from the line.
Even once cleared tree roots will eventually grow back because they are attracted the the moisture and minerals inside the pipes. If tree roots are the issue, make sure you ask the plumber about regular drain-cleaning. Most plumbers will offer a discount if you book bi-annual jetting through them.
When the Sydney plumber arrives at your home to perform high-pressure drain cleaning, they will locate the best access point on your property. They may also perform a CCTV drain pipe inspection first to assess the condition of your pipes and pinpoint the reason why the drains are clogged. They will plan to access the blockage typically from a downhill opening so they can work in an uphill direction as it is most effective.
Why should you hire a plumber who owns a hydro jetter / jet blaster over a plumber that doesn’t?
It’s more efficient - if you want you clogged drain cleared right away, jet blasting is the best tool for the job. In the majority of cases, a Sydney blocked drain can be unclogged within an hour or less. Obviously, every blocked drain is different and it depends on access points and the cause of the clog. But when compared to other drain cleaning methods such as the drain snake, jet blasting will always deliver faster results.
It cleans the entire length of the line - unlike other drain cleaning methods such as the drain snake or auger, high-pressure drain cleaning scrubs the entire line clean and removes all other debris, not just the clog.
Jet blasting is environmentally friendly - If you care about the environment, you want to call a plumber who owns a jet blasting machine. Also know as hydro-jetters, as the name suggests they use water to unclog the drain. This means no chemicals are being poured down the drain pipe. Drain chemicals are catastrophic for the environment, our waterways and marine life.
Hydro-jetting is safer for you pipes - other methods of unclogging Sydney drains such as drain chemicals and drain snakes are notorious for damaging pipes. The corrosive ingredients that make up drain cleaning chemicals can eat through the pipes, particularly older metal pipes which are already partially corroded. Drain snakes, on the other hand use friction to unblock drains. This friction can crack old ceramic or metal pipes, particularly those with some existing damage.
It works out cheaper - most plumbers charge by the hour for clogged drain repairs. Because jet blasting is faster-acting than other drain cleaning methods, the plumber will be at your property for less time which ultimately means a better price for you.
