Hydro-Jet To The Rescue

Hydro Jet To the Rescue

What is the Hydro-Jet and why is everyone so excited about it?

When do you need the Hydro-Jet machine? The direct answer is whenever you have an obstruction in the sewer line.

One of the main causes of sewer-line obstructions is underground tree roots. These tree roots penetrate the wall of a pipe and continue to grow inside the pipe, eventually becoming large enough to prevent anything from flowing through the pipe.

Another leading cause of sewer-line stoppages is a build-up of excessive paper, usually toilet paper or paper towels, in residential homes and commercial facilities.
Regardless of the cause, once your drainage system stops flowing, you start getting backups in the toilet, the bathtub and the sinks, the shower, and other drains.

When a customer calls us with a waste line stoppage, we bring the latest Hydro-jet machine and take care of the problem in a jiffy.

The first thing we do is camera the line. This will show us exactly where the stoppage is and how far into the pipe we will have to insert the hydro-jet hose.
Then we fill the machine with water.

We have to fill up the machine onsite – water weighs 7 lbs per gallon and these machines can hold up to 300 gallons – so we cannot fill up at our shop because it would be too heavy to transport.

The hydro-jet machines are equipped with powerful diesel engines. It takes a few minutes to build up to the desired pressure after we turn on the ignition, but pretty soon sufficient pressure builds up to generate a force as high as 2,000 lbs per square inch – enough power to blast away virtually any obstruction.

The hydro-jet machine has a very long hose. Sometimes we have to insert the hose a hundred or more feet into the pipe to get it to the place where the stoppage is located.
When the job is done, and we believe we have cleared the obstruction, we again camera the line to make sure that the stoppage has been cleared. Then we physically flush and test all drains, toilets and sinks to make sure they are operating normally now that the waste line stoppage has been cleared.

If you live in Los Angeles, and you have a sewer line obstruction call Mr Speedy Plumbing and Rooter Inc. and we will bring out one of our state of the art Hydro-Jet machines to take care of the problem in record time. Learn more about our hydro jetting services in Los Angeles.
