Typically a snake will do the job for most clogged or slow drains. However, when the drain is stubborn and not flowing after utilizing a snake, the next step would be to perform a camera inspection followed by a hydro jetting service once the cause of the blockage is found. ER Block Plumbing’s plumbers are trained specifically on how to properly use this piece of heavy equipment. Our plumbers have to abide by strict safety regulations in order to maintain a safe workspace making sure that the job is done quickly and effectively.

What is a Hydro Jetter?

A hydro jetter is a state of the art machine that sprays highly pressurized water out of a hose that is equipped with a specific nozzle that was created to spray water in different directions, which can also be interchanged for a specialty nozzle containing chains on the end used to break off any debris that has built up in the pipe. This advanced tool will effectively descale the interior of cast iron pipes in an attempt to remove the blockage and restore free flow to your drain. When the hydro jetter is implemented, there is a higher chance of removing whatever is causing the blockage.

Common Causes of Pipe Blockages

  • Corrosion that has built up within cast iron pipes
  • Tree roots that have invaded the pipe
  • Pipes that were not graded properly during installation
  • Sludge/grease build up that typically occurs in kitchen lines
  • An offset pipe connection due to shifts in soil or poor quality couplings

With so many possible causes, it’s a wonder how other plumbing companies are able to find the problem without using a sewer camera at all. That’s why you can rest assured that ER Block Plumbing uses cutting edge technology to diagnose the problem and find the right solution to get the pipe system in your home running effectively again.

ER Block Plumbing uses two types of hydro jetters so that there isn’t any damage to smaller pipes in your home. After ER Block Plumbing identifies the issue the technician will utilize the appropriate hydro jetter that fits the pipe size where the blockage or buildup is located.
