Having Septic Tank Issues?
Hydro Jetting Clogged Drains
Is your business experiencing a clogged drain or major backup? Van’s Septic Service offers high pressure water jetting (hydro jetting) services to remove even the toughest clogs. Hydro jetting uses a high pressure water in combination with a specifically designed nozzle. Grease, hair, and other mineral build-up are effectively removed.
Hydro jetting is a method trained professionals use to clean slow sewage lines. The process involves pushing high-pressure water (2-4 thousand PSI) through your drain to remove blockages.
A drain snake (sometimes referred to as an auger) is a long steel cable designed to break up basic clogs. Unfortunately, a drain snake doesn’t usually clean the entire pipe.
A hydro jet is designed to not only break up the clog but can also remove any material building up inside your pipe from common minerals and grease. Another major difference is concerning the effectiveness of clearing tree roots. Augers (drain snakes) can cut holes through tree roots but a hydro jet is capable of cutting through roots up to a quarter inch in diameter.
