The Benefits and Advantages of Sewer Jetting

Why is Sewer Jetting & Flushing Important?

The history of Sewer Jetting

Sewer jetting is a process of using high-pressure water to clean and clear clogged, or blockages, from sewer lines.  Sewer jetting is also known as hydro jetting, hydro scrubbing, or water jetting. It was first used in the early 1900s and has become increasingly popular in recent years. Sewer jetting is an effective way to remove grease, sludge, and other debris blockage from sewer lines.

Why it is Important to Flush Sewers Regularly?

Sewer FlushingSewer systems need regular cleaning, especially during storms when an abundance of debris tends to collect in sewer drains. Sewer jet cleaning uses high-pressure water nozzles to flush effectively out dirt, litter, sludge, and any other forms of blockage from sewer pipes.

Professionals are trained to properly operate the sewer jetting machine, and deal with any issues that may arise during the cleaning process, perform the sewer flushing procedures.

Why It Must Be Done:

City maintenance organizations regularly perform maintenance of flushing sewers to ensure that the sewage system functions reliably. In many cases, sewer jet systems may be over a century old and will need regular cleaning and maintenance work to remove blockage to keep them in working condition.

What to Expect When Sewer Line Cleaning Work is in Progress:

A sewer jet truck is utilized to service several miles of pipelines that run underground and unclog any blockage it may find. These may be exclusive jetting or vacuuming trucks, or a combination of the two. Sewer jetting equipment consists of a high-pressure water pump, hose, and nozzle. The high-pressure water pump is used to generate the water pressure needed to power the nozzle. The nozzle is attached to the end of the hose and is used to direct the high-pressure water jet into the sewer line.
