Hydro Jetting

What is "hydro jetting"?

Pipe cleaning is commonly performed by a technique known as sewer jetting. Sewer jetting is the application of streams of high-pressure water for use within pipes for cleaning and debris removal. Water at the correct high pressure can cut roots, dissolve blockages, emulsify grease and soaps while spray washing pipe wall surfaces. As part of the jetting process, the water from the nozzle can also wash away accumulated dirt or debris on the bottom of the pipe at the same time.

Potential applications for high pressure jetting units

Sanitary or Mainline Sewers

Wastewater flows freely through sewers via gravity. Sewers are connected at various intervals by manholes that sometimes allow for a change of direction of wastewater flow. Sewer blockages can form as a result of root infiltration, food grease buildup, soap residue buildup and dirt and debris accumulation.

Laterals

Pipes that connect building drainage systems to municipal sewers are considered to be part of the property and the responsibility of the property owner. Typically, laterals are 4" and 6" diameter pipes that connect directly to municipal sewer pipelines, but can be larger for commercial or industrial buildings. Lateral blockages can form as a result of root infiltration, food grease buildup, soap residue buildup and dirt and debris accumulation. Blockages can also occur from pipe failure or collapse that will require excavation to correct.

Drains

Drainage pipes are located under or within buildings and are considered to be part of the property and the responsibility of the property owner. Drain blockages can form as a result of food grease buildup, soap residue buildup and dirt and debris accumulation. Storm drain blockages can form as a result of root infiltration, silt, dirt and debris accumulation. Blockages can also occur from pipe failure or collapse that will require excavation to correct.

Sewer Jetting

How it works

We attach a jetting nozzle to the end of a high-pressure hose and a high-pressure water pump. Jetting nozzles have small precision-machined jets to restrict water flow from the jetting pump, causing high pressure to build within hose. As the pressurized water is expelled from the nozzle jets, it reverts from pressure to velocity, creating thrust that allows the nozzle to pull the jetting hose. With this pressurized system, high pressure jetting hose coils on a hydraulic powered hose reel (up to 500') and is released by the operator who controls the travel speed and distance of the nozzle up the pipe.

Pressurized water expelled from the nozzle jets cleans debris and removes pipe blockages or roots from the inside of the pipe while traveling through the pipe. During this action, water from the nozzle jets effectively forms a curtain or wall of high-pressure water that forces the debris downstream. Sewer jetting technology can be applied to clean all size pipe diameters with the appropriate size of high pressure jetting unit.

Friendly and punctual

Jason has come to my house three times. Each time he was friendly, punctual, and very clear about the cost of repairs and what kind of work was required. At every step he kept me informed. Outstanding service. Would definitely call on Rooterplus again.

Came through for me

I needed to service my septic tank prior to sodding my backyard. I called 2 other companies prior to RooterPLUS, Both showed up with equipment that couldn't do the job. With only a couple day window available, RooterPLUS came through for me the next morning with the right equipment and a professional and pleasant crew.

Doc and Kory assessed the situation and got right to work. They knew exactly what to do and completed the task perfectly. They explained everything throughout the process and pointed out potential issues as they worked. Everything was done to my complete satisfaction and I'll definitely use RooterPLUS in the future for my septic tank needs.

Neighborhood rockstars

We had an issue in my neighborhood where a water main pipe burst, leaving a giant mess of a leak spewing into the street. We called numerous plumbing companies who all said they couldn't get out in a timely manner. RooterPlus! said no problem, we'll be out asap.Josh came out, assessed the situation and said he had to go get some more supplies. He came back with the necessary supplies and got to work. And he worked and worked and worked from 6pm until 4:30 am! He had to call in reinforcements (Josh 2) and they worked hard as a team to repair the issue. Then they came back out only 5 hours later to put the finishing touches on the job.I think I speak for the entire neighborhood when we say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for being absolute rockstars and getting our neighborhood back up and running.
