High Pressure Water Jet Cleaning

Cleaning and Unblocking Drains By Hydro Blasting

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.

What is High Pressure Water Jetting?

High Pressure Water Jetting (HPWJ) blasts highly compressed and concentrated pressurised water out of a small nozzle. The resultant water force will cut through virtually anything. Also known in (and out) of the industry as hydro-blasting or water-cutting, HPWJ is employed in a wide range of applications and environments because it is such an effective, powerful and precise tool.

How does it work?

By forcing water through a small outlet, the jet creates the high pressure needed for cleaning and cutting through the sort of debris found in the drainage and sewer system, so that the pipe system is restored to flow freely again. This technology is also the most environmentally friendly and simple solution to many sewer and drainage problems, and for descaling process engineering pipework.

What are the benefits?

Clearing and cleaning drains quickly and cost-effectively means that high pressure water jetting is perfect for meeting sensitive time-frames and fixed budgets. Our High Pressure Water Jet Cleaning engineers are flexible too, and will work to meet your needs and your schedule, anywhere in the UK, for a comprehensive and exemplary HPWJ service.
