What Is Hydrojetting?
Hydrojetting is the use of powerful water jets to blast through clogs in a sewer line. This procedure leads to the municipal waste water system or to a septic tank. A high pressure stream of clean water is pushed into the pipe through a long hose. Only a licensed plumber should attempt hydrojetting a sewer or septic system drainage pipe. Here at Roman Plumbing Inc., our technicians are periodically trained to know the most advanced technology in order to service all your New Port Richey, FL plumbing needs.

How Does Hydrojetting Work?
During the hydrojetting procedure, our plumber may first send a straight line into the sewer pipe to do a camera examination. If a clog is found by our plumbers, we then put the hydrojets into place at the opening of the affected pipe. The jets are powered by a motor contained within our service vehicle.
We will connect to your water supply to provide a constant and consistent jet of water to send through the affected pipe. Water is pressurized to 1500 to 4000 pounds per minute, or 7,000 pounds per square inch (PSI) to 60,000 PSI. The strong force of the pressurized water can push through powerful clogs that are caused by tree roots, grease or inappropriately flushed items. While the water is pushed forward, reverse jets work backward to break up the obstruction in the pipe.
The entire jetting process may take as little as an hour or as long as a full day of work depending on the scope and location of the clog. No chemicals are used during the hydrojetting process. Hydrojetting is safe for residential and commercial sewer drains. We can also use it for clearing certain types of septic tank problems.

What Is Hydrojetting Used For?
In addition to using hydrojetting as a repair technique for dispelling a clog within a septic or sewer line, our plumbers can also use hydrojetting as a form of preventive maintenance for your pipes. When done as a maintenance technique, hydrojetting takes an hour or two. The powerful jets of water can break through small clogs and reduce the size of obstructions within the pipes so that the waste water can flow without any impediments.
