No matter what you do, some clogs just won’t quit. And watching your water back up, again and again, is enough to raise anyone’s stress levels. If left as is, your pipes could eventually become completely blocked and send wastewater flowing back into your tub, sink, or toilet. When this happens, you’ll be left with a mess to clean up. In instances where an obstruction isn’t cleared up by typical solutions, including plungers and drain cleaners, it’s a good sign that you need to step things up a notch.
The answer? Hydro jetting (also referred to as ‘hydro-jetting,’ 'hydrojetting,' or ‘water jetting’). This innovative drain cleaning method is effective, safe, and eco-friendly. It also doesn’t end with you tearing up your front yard with a backhoe or an excavator. Though few plumbing companies in the Ephrata area are offering this service, Vertex Mechanical happens to be one of them. So, if you have a root problem or a stubborn ball of baby wipes that your normal plumber can’t beat, give us a call at 717-335-2633. For more information about the what, why, and how of hydro jetting, keep reading.
You’ve probably seen a power washer in action. Hydro jetting is a process that takes the same basic technology and repurposes it to clean hair, roots, grease, and stubborn clogs from your pipes. Like all hydro jetters, our equipment is made up of three parts: a superpowered compressor, a long hose, and a specialized nozzle capable of spraying water out at extremely high pressure, or PSI. Because of the expertise involved, it's a tool best left in the hands of a licensed plumber in the Ephrata area.
If you have a clog that resists traditional cabling and snaking in Stevens or Stevens, hydro jetting should be your next step. To schedule an appointment for hydro jetting, give us a call at 717-335-2633.
While rooter services and camera inspections can clear surface blockages, they rarely tackle the problem at its source. This is doubly true for reoccurring issues like hard water or root build-up. By punching a larger hole through these and other tough clogs, hydro jetting can help your pipes go longer without relining or replacement. It can also stop those issues from coming back! With all that sticky residue and rust gone, hair and grease will just slide on through.
When you use retail store drain cleaners, you often end up doing more harm than good. That’s why you’ll find few plumbers willing to recommend them. But why is the easy way not the best way?
