Jet router drain cleaning is an effective tool in clearing and removing blockages from drainage pipes and systems. The water jet router has a high pressure water pump feeding pressurized wash water through a hose with a cleaning head at the end.
Culverts or any exterior drainpipes need to be free of obstructions so storm water can flow easily. Drainpipe maintenance is often done using heavy equipment including a backhoe, a Vactor truck or jet router and hand shovels. This clears obstructions such as gravel, silt, vegetation and other foreign materials from inside culverts and drainpipes. Resetting culvert sections that have separated at the joints may also be necessary as part of your maintenance.
Sewer jetting is essentially the same process of using water and high pressure to clean the pipes. It gets rid of built up debris that has impeded water flow. A sewer jetter can unclog pipes extending from the house to the sewer system or private septic tank. After this, there should be a noticeable difference in the plumbing. If you’re getting water in your basement, you could have a clogged perimeter drain system. Using the Jet Router to clean your clogged drain will relieve water pressure from around your foundation wall and move water away from the foundation. If the plumbing system isn’t draining properly, you may have an interior or exterior clogged drain. Have an expert evaluate the situation to see if a jet router cleaning of your drainpipes is the answer.
Drainpipe maintenance is done in all weather to prevent flooding, driveway or roadway failure. Additionally, drainpipes around your home can become clogged over time, allowing water to flood into your basement.
