The Most Common Mistakes Of Line Jetting And How To Avoid Them
Clogged drains and sewer lines can be a nightmare. Whether they lead to running sinks and toilets or worse, sewer backups, you need a professional to clear your pipes as soon as possible. Hydro jetting is one of the best solutions for unclogging your pipes and ensuring they remain clean. But before you hire a plumber to do the job, you should understand the most common mistakes when line jetting pipes.
Not Having The Right Equipment
The right equipment is the key to successful line jetting. A high-pressure hose with a hydro jet cutting nozzle, for example, will give you the most effective “cutting” power and can help restore drain flow quickly. The amount of water needed to flush a sewer line depends on its size, material composition, and the type of blockage you’re trying to clear. For example, city crews clean 8- to 12-inch pipes with 40 to 60 gpm, while larger lines require 80-plus gpm trucks. The pressure and flow of a jetting nozzle also determines how much impact it will have on the debris in your sewer line. This minimally invasive technique is a great way to prolong the life of your plumbing system and keep it functioning properly without having to spend time or money on construction.
Not Having The Right Training
Using a line jetter to keep your main lines clean is the ideal way to prevent plumbing problems in the first place. But when it comes to line jetting, you want to get the right training and experience to make sure you are doing it correctly. This includes not only using the most powerful jetter on the market, but also using the most effective nozzles. It’s also a good idea to inspect the pipe with a camera before you start jetting it. This will help you spot things like 45- and 90-degree bends or Y-branches that can put your hose at risk.
Not Identifying The Problem
The most common misstep when it comes to line jetting is not identifying the problem as quickly as possible. If you aren’t careful, you could end up with a clogged pipe and a flooded home with a hefty repair bill. One of the best ways to identify the issue is to conduct a thorough visual inspection of the piping around your property. We can then recommend the best course of action for your specific situation.
