Efficient, Economical & Environmentally Safe
The better option for removing clogs and cleaning your pipes is Kellermeier Plumbing’s hydro jetting drain cleaning. Using state of the art equipment and flexible hoses, Kellermeier Plumbing’s expert technicians will shoot highly pressurized water through your pipes.
During the cleaning process, forward and reverse jets direct the powerful cleansing water to break through even the toughest blockages. Pressure washing the inside of the pipes, hydro jetting drain cleaning penetrates and emulsifies grease, breaks up sludge, pulverizes debris, crushes tree and shrub roots, and even washes out pipe scaling.
Because your pipes are made to handle water flowing through them, high-pressure water jetting is the most efficient, economical, and environmentally safe way to clean your pipes.
We wash dishes, shower and bathe, brush our teeth, and use the restroom every day without ever giving a thought to our plumbing.
Underneath our houses, sanitary branch lines flow from the restrooms into a large drain pipe, the main line. Kitchen lines from sinks and dishwashers generally flow through a grease trap before they also feed into the main line. Food particles and grease create sludge.
Sludge and paper products build up slowly in your pipes. And one day, a clog forms.
Common Clog Causes
The most common causes of backups in your pipes are paper products, tree and shrub roots, and sludge. Generally, the first solution you turn to when drains are clogged is a chemical drain cleaner. But while it may dissolve the sludge, it is also harmful to the environment.
Unfortunately, chemical drain cleaners are just a stopgap measure. Paper products and roots are not affected by the chemicals. Eventually, the blockage returns, and it’s usually worse than the first clog.
Snaking Works Better Than Chemicals
At this point, the conventional way to open the drain is snaking it with a metal cable.
By forcing a cable back and forth through the pipes with a spinning motion, snaking breaks up the blockage and opens the pipeline. More effective than chemicals, snaking the pipes can do a good job of removing soft stoppage and paper products. But the metal cable can also get stuck and bind up with the roots.
And when the cable hits a pipe fitting, it can damage your plumbing.
Unfortunately, even though snaking the pipes opens them, a lot of debris is left behind. The blockage is not gone. It’s just spread out. And sooner or later, generally within a few months, you’ll have to snake the lines again.
When the sink or shower doesn’t drain and you’re afraid to flush, it’s time to completely flush out your system with Kellermeier Plumbing’s Hydro Jetting Drain Cleaning.
After all, a straight flush is better than a full house. Call Kellermeier today.
