Facility maintenance can feel like a never-ending list of to-dos. Even when everything is in working order, preventative maintenance needs will always be right around the corner. One of those never-ending preventative tasks is plumbing service. While plumbing emergencies are rare, it’s important that you schedule regular inspections to prevent cracks, leaks, and blockages throughout your facility’s system.
Fortunately, you can streamline some of your plumbing maintenance with high-pressure water jetting services. This advanced plumbing maintenance service helps you to clear blockages, remove grease, and prevent costly repairs from cracked or burst pipes. Unlike snaking or drain-clearing chemicals, this service is environmentally friendly and highly effective.
What is High-Pressure Water Jetting?
Water jetting, also known as hydro-jetting, is the process of clearing pipes using highly pressurized water from a hose. The water pressure can range from 7,000 PSI up to 60,000 PSI, and is completed in a process similar to snaking. Your MaintenX plumber will feed a small hose through your pipes and blast the water through the pipes and tanks, effectively clearing everything from debris and grease to tree roots or other large blockages.
Why Schedule High-Pressure Water Jetting?
Water jetting is preferable for clearing pipes for many reasons. Snaking is the more common service, and can be effective for smaller blockages caused by things like leaves, food waste, or toilet paper. However, larger blockages can not always be cleared by snaking. This method also does not clear pipes as completely as water jetting. Some facilities use chemical solutions to dissolve small clogs or blockages, but this is not an ideal solution for many reasons. The chemicals can erode the piping and are oftentimes not safe if not properly disposed of. Hydro jetting is the safest, most effective option for commercial plumbing cleaning.
