Hydro Jetting for Drain Cleaning
Hydro jetting is a plumbing technique that uses high-pressure water to clear clogs and debris from pipes. Kokesh Plumbing uses it as a next step after traditional drain cleaning methods such as cabling have not been effective. Hydro jetting can also be used in applications where a cable would damage the type of pipe attempting to be cleared.
Hydro jetting works by using a powerful stream of water to blast away clogs and debris from the inside of pipes. The water is typically pressurized to between 2,000 and 4,000 PSI, which is much higher than the pressure of a typical garden hose. This high-pressure water can break up even the most stubborn clogs, including grease, hair, and tree roots.
Hydro jetting is a safe and effective way to clean pipes, and it can be used on a variety of pipes, including sewer lines, drain lines, french drains, and septic tank lines. It is also a green solution, as it does not use any chemicals or solvents.
