What does Hydrojetting or Hydro-jet Cleaning mean?

by Action Plumbing on Monday, February 25, 2013 10:57 PM
Hydrojetting (or Hydro-jet Cleaning) is a method of clearing corrosion, roots, debris, and other blockages from sewage and drainage systems using high pressure water streams. Utilizing specialized equipment a hose is injected into the line. The water is then blasted out of the hose through a specialized nozzle at anywhere from 2000 PSI (Pounds per square inch) to upwards of 5000 PSI. Which is nothing to sneeze at considering your average garden hose, depending on your local water pressure, is anywhere from 40 - 70 PSI.

Winter is prime rooting season for trees. The air is colder, the leaves are falling, but the tree must constantly be on the hunt for water and oxygen to survive. Since there are fewer leaves, it's up to the roots to track down a new source of sustenance. Your sewer lines, unfortunately for you, can provide ideal oxygen, water, and nutrient levels for the tree. I'll give you some things to watch out for to help detect the issue, some options to preempt the problem, and some things we can do to help if your trees have their subterranean grip on your sewer pipes.
