Why Is Drain Jetting Required To Unclog Drains?
Drain jetting is a way of unclogging drains by using a high pressure water hose to break down a blockage into smaller pieces so they are able to move through the system. It also helps to clean the drains, removing any grime and silt that may have built up over time.
How does drain jetting work?
Drain jetting is one of the most effective and environmentally friendly ways of clearing blocked drains, especially more stubborn culprits! The water jets shoot water at high pressure and this powerful force helps to dislodge blockages and break them down into smaller pieces that are able to flow down the drainage system much more easily.
Will drain jetting work for me?
Our hoses can navigate tight bends and our jets are equipped with 100 metres of hose so can reach even the most hard to reach areas. So whatever your drainage system is set up like, it’s likely drain jetting will work for you.
How often should I get drain jetting?
You should get drain jetting at least once every two years, more if your drains are under a lot of demand or become blocked quickly. You can invest in a drainage contractor to pay a set yearly amount to cover this and any emergency issues that occur.
My drains are blocked! What do I do?
If your drains are blocked and water is stagnant, slow to drain or not draining at all, this can obviously cause disruption to your home or business as well as lead to unpleasant smells. We provide an emergency call-out service that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Simply give us a call and we’ll aim to be with you within two hours and unblock your drains to restore normality. In most cases, we do this with drain jetting.
What can I do to avoid my drains blocking?
There are some simple things you can do to minimise the chances of your drains blocking, such as not pouring cooking fat down the train – this solidifies and sticks to drains causing blockages. Instead, pour carefully into a disposable container to cool and solidify before disposing of in your food or general waste.
In your bathroom, invest in a shower trap to go over your bath or shower plughole to catch hair and prevent it clogging drains. This also tends to catch other culprits such as soap residue and can be easily removed and cleared around once a month.
Finally, do NOT flush wet wipes down the toilet! In fact don’t flush anything down the toilet that isn’t the 3 P’s! Pee, Poo and Paper!
