Not All Drain Cleaning Techniques Are Equal
A blocked drain can be more than an inconvenience – it can cause damage and if black water (sewage) is involved even health problems. Sometimes you can deal with drain blockages by using a drain cleaner, sometimes nothing seems to unclog it and all you can do is call a plumber.
Part of the issue depends on whether you are dealing with a hard or soft blockage. A hard blockage is when some kind of debris – rock, a child’s or dog’s toy, etc – finds its way into the drain line. A soft blockage has built up over time and is often made up of hair, grease, soap scum, lime, or similar.
Now There Is A Better Way To Clean Blocked Drains and Pipes
Hydro jetting is a newer method of drain cleaning that is like power-washing the inside of pipes. A high-pressure hose is inserted through the drain pipe. The intense blast of water is strong enough to remove greasy and solid debris yet still safe for the pipes.
When is Hydro Jet drain cleaning a good solution?
There are two types of blockages that can occur in a sewer line – hard blockage or soft blockage. A hard blockage is caused by something stuck in the pipe (tree roots, toilet paper or paper towels, toys, tampons, toothpaste tube, broken pipe, or even rock/gravel/clay/dirt in the sewer line.
A soft blockage builds up over time and eventually cakes onto the side walls of the pipe. Most rodding machines are not designed to clean a pipe completely. This means that you will still have slow drains and intermittent blockage which will eventually back up again if not fully cleaned out.
