Are you aware of the fact that a professional drain cleaning can help to avoid thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary plumbing repair work? This holds especially true when the professional drain cleaning is performed on a regular basis. It is a shame that far too many residential, commercial, and industrial real estate owners attempt this preventative maintenance task themselves. Without the proper training and experience you can actually do a lot more damage than good.
Although it is admirable to maintain your own home, place of business, or investment property or properties there are certain jobs that should be left in the hands of experts. Professional plumbing contractors, like Restore Pipe Systems utilize the proper equipment, techniques, and tools to get the job done correctly without causing any damage to the drain pipes, sewer pipes, or plumbing fixtures. For example, hydro jetting is a technologically advanced plumbing procedure that incorporates the use of pressurized water to systematically clean the interior surfaces of drainpipes and sewer pipes.
The technique thoroughly removes the buildup of water scales, grease, food particles, hair, soap, shampoo, shaving cream, and other debris that goes down the drains on a daily basis. In essence hydro jetting cleans the plumbing pipes in a far more comprehensive way than other plumbing procedures. The question you may be asking yourself at this point is how does the hydro jetting process work? Once the plumbing technician locates the drain cleanout they will insert a hose into the system. The hose is attached to a high-tech machine that sprays pressurized water into the pipes.
The plumbing technician must determine exactly how much water pressure to use for each job. The correct amount varies depending on pipes current condition, size, and materials that they are made of. Many of the hydro jetting machines are capable of delivering over twenty gallons of water per minute at a pressure of up to five thousand pounds per square inch or PSI for short. The pressurized water works against gravity, meaning that the buildup and debris will spray off of the pipe walls and work its way down the pipe system.
If an inexperienced plumbing technician is operating the equipment than they may very well incorporate the use off either too much water pressure or not enough water pressure. Too much water pressure can cause the pipes to dent, crack, bend, or even break. If not enough water pressure is used the hydro jetting process will fail to effectively remove the buildup of materials in the drainpipes and sewer pipes. That is exactly why you should only hire a plumbing contractor, like Restore Pipe Systems that has years of drain cleaning experience.
