High Pressure Water Jetting (HPWJ) has been widely used since the 1950’s, but the use of water to unblock drains can be traced back as far as Victorian Times.
The use of a Jet Wash (water-cutting or hydro-blasting) helps cut through almost all solid materials such as grease, wet wipes and fat, which are the more common cause of drain blockages, but also capable of descaling, removing rust, paint, residues from chemicals and even rubble and concrete that can block the drains too. Water is forced to pass through the small hole or orifice of the jet nozzle at high pressure, where the restriction of the small orifice results in a high-pressure water stream. Not only does this method breakdown the blockage but it also fully cleans the entire drain removing any further snagging issues. This is usually done with just clean water but sometimes cleansing enzymes are used to degrease and sanitise the drain.
This method of using clean high-pressure water applied at the right level can be very precise and effective at removing any blockage that may have built up in the drain.
We recommend a regular jet washing service for our domestic and commercial clients, probably about twice a year would be the optimum to make sure the drains ARE always in great working order and to avoid any emergency call outs, which can especially affect the smooth running of a commercial business e.g. a restaurant, bar or hotel.
