So, how does the hydro-jet work?
Hydro-jets are inserted into your drain pipes and use highly pressurised water that is discharged through a flexible cable and nozzle system. At 5000 psi, the stream of water is able to quickly and easily slice through tree roots and other solid materials. As there are no blades or cutters of any kind to get stuck, the hydro jetter drain cleaner is able to effectively and efficiently demolish and clean any and all greasy and sludgy build-ups that other equipment can’t. For this reason, the Jim’s Plumbing blocked drain professionals find the hydro-jet drain cleaners particularly useful for blocked sink drains and blocked stormwater drains.
As the water used by the hydro jetter is pressurized to such a high level, there is a safety hazard when using it, as the pressure could easily slice through a finger! It’s essential that only a highly trained operator use one of these machines, so at Jim’s Plumbing we make sure that all of our fully qualified and licensed blocked drains plumbers have the training and skills to not only use the hydro jetter drain cleaner effectively, but also safely. Your attending blocked drain plumber will be able to accurately assess your specific situation to determine what the best clearing method will be, then, if that turns out to be the hydro-jet, will be able to use it to give you the very best results to your blocked drain woes – clearing and cleaning your drains with quality and reliability guaranteed.
So, why would we use the hydro-jet?
Grease, oil, dirt and other such accumulations can be very difficult to move with other machinery, as their cutting tools either get stuck, don’t end up removing everything, or they can’t reach the blockage effectively. These types of blockages, however, are short work for a hydro jetter drain cleaning machine, as the high pressure water stream simply blasts through sticky clogs and stubborn build-up’s and quickly scours the drain clean. Because of this, and their ability to also cut through tree roots, the blocked drain experts here at Jim’s Plumbing find the high powered hydro-jets to be very effective for blocked stormwater drains, blocked sewer drains, blocked sink drains and any hard to reach, stubborn drain blockage.
Cafes and restaurants frequently have oil and grease build-ups in their sink drains, which can become problematic very quickly. Jim’s Plumbing can, of course, take care of this by scouring these drains with the hydro-jet whenever required but, we believe, in a commercial situation, it is a far better idea to have your drains cleaned regularly, approximately every 3 or 4 months. As a business owner, you don’t want any sinks, or even bathroom pipes to suddenly overflow, so you should call the blocked drain experts at Jim’s Plumbing to organise for a scheduled hydro-jet clean as often as you need it.
In most cases our hydro-jets are trailer mounted and not carried to every job. Due to this we do request that if you have a blocked stormwater drain that you advise of this upon your plumber booking and request that the hydro-jet be brought to your location. This will save time in relation to your plumber not having to leave site to collect it.
