Hydro Jetting and Pipe Cleaning In Indianapolis, IN
Hydro jetting pipe cleaning is by far the most economical, efficient, and environmentally friendly method of cleaning drainpipes and sewer pipes. Also known as water jetting, this method is also useful for clearing hard to reach clogs. The way it works, a hose propels a high-pressure water stream directly into the sewer line.
Different types of blockages require different types of water jetting. The pressurized stream is so powerful that, if not careful, it can easily damage the plumbing system. Our technicians are trained to choose which settings to use based on the type of cleaning needed, and the materials and conditions of the pipes in question. On the one hand, if he or she sets the pressure too low it will not properly clean the pipes or loosen the clog. On the other hand, if the pressure is set to high it can cause severe and permanent damage to the pipes. That is exactly why Nu Flow Technologies only hires the most experienced plumbing technicians.
One of the most important parts of our job is investing in our team. We make sure every one of our technicians goes through one of the most intense training programs in the industry. This attention to detail gives us the ability to deal with even the dirtiest pipes and the nastiest build ups of gunk inside the pipe walls.
How Pipes Clog
Grease, sludge, soap and other materials coat the interior walls of the drain pipes, and sewer line on a daily basis. Over time the buildup significantly reduces the diameter of these pipes, which in turn compresses the flow of wastewater and waste materials & raw sewage in the case of the toilet drains. Eventually, the pipes become completely blocked to the point that water and small objects cannot pass through them.
You may be tempted to attempt clearing the blockage yourself or hiring a plumber that employs the use of old-school methods. We caution you against this because liquid drain cleaners may be effective at removing clogs; however, they include harsh chemicals that also eat away at the pipe materials. You are taking the risk of ruining your pipes each and every time you pour that stuff down the drain. The commercial drain cleaners that some plumbing companies continue to use contain even stronger chemicals. Just imagine what those chemicals are doing to your pipes. It is like the plumber is pouring acid down the drain.
Plumbing tools, such as drain snakes are no better. They only punch a hole in the clog, which allows water and materials to pass through. However, it does not really solve the problem on a permanent basis. In addition, drain snakes are not effective at removing the accumulation of grease and sludge that forms within the pipe walls. Most mechanical devices are harsh on both the pipes and the plumbing fixtures. This holds especially true with clay sewer pipes that were used before the early 1980’s.
