At A1 Plumbing, our technological advances in pipe cleaning techniques have given our experienced technicians several options to restore the functioning of slow or clogged drains. Clogs in a home’s or business’s sewer system may seem like minor inconveniences, but they can lead to much more serious damage if you fail to address them.
Traditional drain cleaning techniques can overtax older pipes and cause leaks that make even more extensive – and expensive – repair procedures necessary. To make matters worse, some plumbing methods fail to address the conditions inside the pipe that lead to clogs in the first place.
How We Help Prevent Clogs From Forming In Nevada Home Drain Lines
Clogs are created when waste buildup progressively accumulates on the inside of the pipe, slowly minimizing its internal diameter and impeding the free flow of water. The accumulation of waste and debris buildup is usually a combination of the waste going down the drains, including soap scum, grease, hair, food particles, and mineral deposits from the water.
Once a layer of obstruction forms, more sludge accumulates in the same segment of the pipe, gradually reducing the interior of the pipe diameter until only a small channel still allows free flow of water. At that point, any small piece of solid matter washed down the drain may be the straw that broke the camel’s back, leading to a total blockage.
At A1 Plumbing, we first assess the nature of the clog by sending a video camera down into the pipes. We can pinpoint the location of the clog, as well as determine how severe it is, to help us identify the best possible technique to clear your pipes and restore your drain to full function.
For smaller or less well-established clogs, rooting can be a successful technique that drills a hole through the blockage to open the sewer drain line. Rooting can be effective at removing some debris, but a clog caused by rocks or tree roots will need a more aggressive solution, such as hydro jetting.
- Hydro Jetting
Hydro jetting is a state-of-the-art plumbing technique that uses a powerful stream of highly pressurized water to power through plumbing clogs and scour the inside of the pipe, thus preventing repeat blockages from forming.
How Hydro Jetting Is An Effective Sewer Line Cleaning Solution
This non-invasive technique that uses a specially designed high-pressure hose and nozzle connected to a machine that pressurizes water from a tank, producing a blast of water that breaks up years of accumulated debris and recurring clogs. As the water surges through the pipes, it will push any dislodged debris downward until it is safely flushed away into the municipal sewer line.
At more than 3,000 PSI, the water is even forceful enough to break up tree roots, dirt, and small rocks, but it does not overstress plumbing pipes or joints the way more aggressive mechanical pipe cleaning equipment can. Hydro jetting pipes leaves their interior surfaces sparkling clean and restores normal water flow.
