Pipe cleaning is commonly performed by a technique known as sewer jetting. Sewer jetting is the application of water being forced through jet nozzles at high pressure that in turn loosens and removes fat build-up, sewer waste and debris from a pipe. The high water pressure washes down the side walls of the pipe making the pipe look brand new when done.
Our water jetting units are trailer mounted making accessibility much easier when working in confined areas. The length of the high-pressure hoses on our machines are 60 meters to ensure that we easily reach between cleaning eyes and manholes.
Drain cleaning or unblocking is done by using the conventional drain rods or mechanical drain cleaning machines. This method of unblocking surely has its merits and are still being used by us in most instances as it is cost effective and resolves 70% of blockages for a period of time. The downside of using drain rods or drain machines in badly clogged fatty drains or drains that have accumulated a lot of dirt is that the drain rod or spring makes a hole through the dirt deposit and does not remove the entire blockage.
Drain jetting on the other hand cuts through the dirt or fat deposit and washes down the entire inside of the pipe bringing out everything it loosens in the process.
