Benefits of drain jetting

Drain cleaning and maintenance is important for long term performance and drainage efficiency, helping to avoid blockages and clogs, as well as damage to the drainage system. One effective option for cleaning your drain regularly is drain jetting. But what is this, how does it work, and what are the benefits of drain jetting?

What is drain jetting?

Drain jetting is a highly effective method for maintaining and cleaning drainage systems. This involves the use of high-pressure water to clear blockages, debris, and build-up within pipes. This process can be highly beneficial for preventing clogs, maintaining optimal water flow, and ensuring the longevity of the drainage infrastructure. 

How does drain jetting work?

Drain jetting works so effectively for cleaning drains by using high pressure water. A specialised nozzle, attached to a high-pressure water hose, is then strategically inserted into the affected drain. The water is then released at a high velocity, effectively dislodging and flushing away any obstructions within the pipes. The force generated by the water jet is capable of breaking down even stubborn blockages, such as grease, tree roots, and mineral deposits.

What are the benefits of drain jetting?

There are a number of benefits and advantages of drain jetting, and these include:

  • Being an efficient cleaning method
  • Taking a proactive approach
  • Low environmental impact

Drain jetting is a highly efficient cleaning method

One of the most notable benefits of drain jetting is that this offers a highly efficient cleaning method. Drain jetting can be used effectively to clean the entire length of the drainage system, which is unlike any traditional cleaning method, that will instead only be able to clean the localised area. This is particularly important where older buildings with ageing drainage systems are used. 

Drain jetting is a proactive approach

Regular maintenance through drain jetting offers a proactive approach to addressing potential drainage problems before they can escalate or cause costly damage. It is a preventative measure that can save you from the inconvenience of sudden blockages and the associated expenses of emergency plumbing services. As such, by incorporating drain jetting into a routine maintenance schedule, you can extend the lifespan of the drainage systems and avoid disruptions caused by unexpected plumbing issues.

Low environmental impact

In addition, drain jetting has a low environmental impact, especially when compared to alternative methods that typically involve chemicals or excavation. Using only water under high pressure, drain jetting eliminates the need for harmful chemicals, making it an eco-friendly choice for maintaining drainage systems. 

Drain jetting for commercial properties 

For commercial establishments, such as restaurants and hotels, where the risk of grease build-up is higher, regular drain jetting can be even more crucial. Grease accumulation can lead to persistent blockages, and if left unaddressed, these blockages may result in the closure of kitchen facilities or other operational disruptions. This means that drain jetting is a highly  cost-effective and useful measure.
