What Is High Pressure Water Jetting?

High pressure water jetting is the method of cleaning sewer & drain lines using high pressure water. An engine powers a high pressure water pump that produces water under pressure. Water from the high pressure pump is delivered to a hose reel containing high pressure jetting hose matched for the pressure and flow of the system. When a nozzle is attached to the end of the jetting hose, pressure is created within the system. All high pressure jetting units are rated as to Pressure (PSI) and Water Flow (GPM). The higher the PSI and the greater the flow per minute of water is will give you the best cleaning possible. For example, our most powerful jetting unit is 4000 PSI and has a water flow of 18 gallons per minute. This combination of high water flow and a very high pressure gives us the ability to clean the pipes efficiently and bring them to a “like new” condition.

Because each clog is different, we have nozzles for every situation. We have nozzles for removing tree roots, grease, ice, sand, dirt, sludge, and sewage. No matter what is clogging your pipe, we have the proper tools to fix the job!

Here are some common situations water jetting is the best option to unclog your drains:

  • Restaurant clogs
  • Car wash drainage issues
  • Sewer lines
  • Floor drains in parking garages
  • Root intrusion
  • Kitchen sinks
  • Auto shop floor drains or trench drains
  • Apartments
  • Drain field cleaning
  • Trench drains
  • Scale and corrosion buildup
  • Storm sewer lines
