Hydrojetting Grease

Cooking grease is one of the most common materials that are introduced into drain pipes that can cause a clog. As the cooking grease cools it will harden and stick to the walls of the drain pipe. After time, the build up of cooking grease on the pipe can become so excessive that it can actually close off the drain. A plumber can use hydrojetting to blow out all of the cooking grease in the drain pipe so that the sink water will drain freely and the pipe will be cleared from obstruction.

Hydrojetting Roots

Some drain pipes may become obstructed by tree roots. Underground drain pipes are particularly susceptible to tree roots because of their location. If a tree root has infiltrated a drain pipe then the chances of it breaching the wall of the pipe is quite high. Using chemicals or mechanical means can further deteriorate the pipe which can cause it to collapse. Hydrojetting may be used by a plumber to break the tree roots free from the walls of the drain pipe. This will allow the drain to be able to be properly used again and will make it free from obstruction.
