What is High Pressure Drain Cleaning?
High pressure water jet cleaning involves clearing blocked drains with a water hose attached to a pressure washer and the correct PSI (3000 to 5000) levels. Drain jets have a variety of nozzles and attachments which can be used to clear drains of different lengths and diameters.
Only a certified blocked drain plumber has the skills and experience to use high pressure drain cleaners correctly and without damaging your pipes. Too much pressure can damage or break the pipes, and less pressure may be insufficient for cleaning the blockage, only pushing it further down.
In some situations, drain cameras may be required before drain cleaning to locate the blockage and ensure further damage is not caused by already worn down piping material. Any holes or cracks in the drain pipe must be repaired with pipe patch repair or relining to avoid future blockages and tree root intrusions. If not, you could be looking at the same problem in a couple of months and, in worse cases, burst pipes because of tree root growth.
Common Causes of Blocked Drains
- Tree root intrusion
- Fat and grease buildup
- Foreign objects in the drain
- Debris, growth, and litter
- Soap scum, hair, and sanitary products
Another cause is soil movement, leading to displaced pipes, slow water pressure, and holes or breaks in drain pipes.
