Few things are more frustrating than realizing you have a blocked drain or sewer line. It could prevent you and your family from showering, washing the dishes, flushing the toilet, and more.

Blockages are also unsanitary and unhealthy. They need to be cleared up as soon as possible. Rather than using dangerous chemical drain cleaners or trying to handle the problem yourself, talk with the experts and have them handle it. Sewer jetting from the pros could be what’s required to remedy the obstruction.

How It Works

Sewer jetting is a safe and environmentally friendly means of clearing these blockages. Other terms for this technique include water jetting and hydro jetting. It can be used to clear away obstacles on residential, commercial, and municipal sewer drainage systems.

The plumbers utilize high-pressure water streams to dislodge the obstructions and ensure the drains flow freely. Jetting can also be part of regular maintenance on the system to ensure there are no complete blockages down the line. It’s a relatively simple concept, but it requires a professional. They need to use the right tools and the right amount of pressure for the areas being cleared to prevent other types of damage.

What Causes Blockages?

Your sewer drain is the main drain that connects to all of the waste drains on your property. When it’s blocked, you could have backups in your sinks, toilet, tub, shower, and garbage disposal. Over time, the main sewer line could become blocked for a host of reasons.

Some common materials that cause blockages over time include baby wipes, dental floss, hair, oil and grease, food debris, and mineral buildup. Root invasion is another potential problem. Roots seeking water could dig into the pipe. Other materials can then gather around the roots rather than being flushed out of the system causing a block.

Contact the Professionals

When you have blocked drains or sewer lines, DIY methods are not always sufficient to clear them. Chemicals could cause damage to your plumbing. The simple plumbing tools you may have can’t fully clear the lines, particularly the main sewer line Even if you can get the water flowing for a while, the blockage is likely to return.

The best thing you can do is contact Open Drains which offers sewer jetting. The experts can come to your property to examine the issue and determine the best way to handle the blockage.
