How Does Drain Jetting Work?

Today we're going to be talking about drain jetting and how it can transform the state of your drains, whether you're a business or a domestic property. Drain jetting is a great way of cleaning drains and pipes that doesn't require a complete immersion within the drains themselves. All that is required is a clever device that cleans the drains thoroughly.

How Does Drain Jetting Work?

Basically it's about the clever use of pressurised water, which is forced through a nozzle at the end of a really long hose. The hose will be inserted into a pipe or drain and it gives the drains a really powerful clean. The nozzle has cleverly had its holes drilled at an angle, so its all the more powerful when it works. This also helps it to propel water through the nozzle at a high pressure, and by doing this, the inside of your pipes are getting a really good clean. To make all this come together, you'll need a powerful pump and some protective equipment, which will help to keep you safe from harm while you're using it.

Because so much rubbish ends up in a drain, whether it's via the toilet or the sink, in a domestic home or a commercial property, drains can get pretty blocked. That's why it's important to have these effective specialised methods to solve the problem, or it can get so bad, your drains are in need of something more serious.

Do it Yourself or Hire a Professional

With drain jetting, you're either going to do it yourself, or hire someone else to do it for you. If you're confident using the machinery, or you've had some experience using it before, then by all means try doing it yourself. Make sure you go to a reputable hire firm and make sure that as well as getting the equipment, you make sure you have all the right protective clothing too.

Otherwise, you can hire a professional, and that's where we come in. Here at ES Drainage we have a lot of experience using the drain jetting method, so we're ideal as a first point of call if you find this method is to your liking.

What are the Advantages of Drain Jetting?

It can be more cost effective than more traditional methods of clearing the drains and pipes manually, and perhaps having to dig up the pipe work. You'll also find that it's much better for the environment, as opposed to using chemicals. Chemical cleaners aren't good for the environment or for your drains, as it can damage your pipes and destroy bacteria that's necessary to help septic systems maintain themselves.

Regular Drain Jetting

It's a good idea to use high pressure water jetting on your drains and pipes on a regular basis, we would suggest at least twice a year. Here at ES Drainage Services, we offer this type of regular cleaning for clients, domestic or commercial.
