Clogged drains are a problem that homeowner’s will eventually experience without the provision of routine drain care. Hair, soap, toothpaste, food debris fat, oil and grease are common causes of clogs. Sometimes plungers and home remedies will help temporarily, but when a clog causes slow drains, no drainage or even backed up drainage, something more powerful is needed. Plumbers often utilize a plumbing auger and it is effective in specific situations. However, nothing is more powerful or as effective as a high-pressured hydro jet for stubborn clogs the auger can not clear. Each tool is designed to handle different types of clogs, and the hydro jet resolves the serious clogs as no other plumbers tool can. Contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumber in Arlington to schedule hydro jetting for your home or business.
The hydro jet uses highly pressured water for the most effective drain and sewer pipe cleaning available. The highly pressurized water cuts through stubborn grease clogs, mineral build-up, hair, soap scum, sand, silt and other clogging debris, including tree roots. Prior to using the hydro jet, our plumber in Arlington will inspect the drain with a miniaturized camera in a process known as a video pipe inspection to identify the cause of poor drainage, and to assess the condition of the pipe. The inspection will not only identify the various types of clogs, but if the problem is due to pipe damage the type and location will also be revealed.
When Pipes are Damaged
When the video pipe inspection reveals broken or damaged pipes, a Ben Franklin plumber in Arlington can provide the repair you need. Our plumbers can provide trenchless pipe repair for broken, cracked, collapsed or otherwise damaged pipes. The trenchless method replaces damaged pipe with brand new pipe, and does so without the need for excavation of your lawn.
The Advantages and Disadvantages
The hydro jet breaks up clogs thoroughly, and an extra benefit of the process is the hydro jet cleans your pipes down to the pipe wall. Materials such as mineral build up and scale will also be removed in the process of using the hydro jet. Once our plumber in Arlington completes the task of drain cleaning, the drain will be thoroughly clean and will stay clean longer. Due to the high pressures involved, hydro jetting is not a do-it-yourself type task and requires the experience of a professional plumber.
Hydro jetting services are typically called for by those in the food industry on a routine basis to help ensure no clogged drains occur. In some situations, a bloacked drain could shut their business down temporarily. With routine hydro jetting, complete blockages are typically a thing of the past. Your home too, can benefit from a periodic drain cleaning, ensuring clogs are removed before they give trouble. Even home’s with years of buildup in the drains and sewer pipe will benefit from hydro jetting. In addition, if you experience smelly drains, with the pipe walls clean, the odor will be gone.

Hydro jetting offers an environmentally friendly process for cleaning clogged drains and sewer pipes. Hydro jetting does not require chemicals, using only highly pressurized water with forward and rear water jets. The process eliminates grease, hair, soap and scum, scale build-up, tree roots, debris from food, and other build-up that can occur over the years. Hydro jetting provides a process of drain cleaning that is superior to all other methods.
Periodic drain cleaning will help to prevent annoying clogs and potential damage to the drains. Periodic drain cleaning should be considered part of your home maintenance regime, and consideration of how the drains are treated will reduce the frequency for the need for a professional cleaning.
The frequency in which you will need to schedule the service will depend on the consideration provided to drains, such as using drain screens where possible and disposing of grease rather than pouring it down the drain. Contact Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington today to schedule drain cleaning service.
When drainage slows, do not delay drain cleaning. The consequences may be a burst drain, a no-flow situation with a complete blockage, or even dreaded sewer backup. Contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington to schedule drain cleaning.
While traditional plumber’s tools will always have their uses, for those traditional tools are unable to handle, such as stubborn clogs, repetitive clogs, tree roots, grease clogs and other hard to treat issues, hydrojetting offers the best solution available.
The primary cause of recurring drain clogs is an incomplete cleaning, leaving partial clogs behind that quickly return to its previous state. Trying to auger a grease clog is an example of incomplete removal. Hydro jetting stops the recurring clog process by cleaning down to the pipe walls. In the average household, periodic hydro jetting can provide years of efficient service with prudent consideration for your drain use.
