At Penny Plumbing we utilize a sewer cleaning process called Hydro Jetting that uses large volumes of water under very high pressure to literally scour the walls of the drain and sewer lines. Unlike mechanical rodding that just cuts a hole in the blockage, hydrojetting cuts roots, grease and debris all the way around the walls of the pipe. This debris is then washed away to leave your sewer or drain lines as clean as the day they were put in!
How does Hydro Jetting work?

Hydro Jetting is typically done through an opening called a cleanout, which is an accessible opening present in every plumbing system and designed to allow plumbers to easily “clean out” debris and other clogs.  A Hydro Jetter consists of a large tank of water, a special high-pressure hose, a special high-strength nozzle, and a machine which pressurizes the water in the hose so that it can spray out of the nozzle at a pressurized rate of up to 3,500 psi and a flow rate of 18 gpm. Every plumbing system is designed to carry waste water “downstream” using gravity.  The Hydro Jetting nozzle is placed at the “downstream” end of the plumbing system and it works its way “upstream” against gravity.  That way, any debris that is cleared out by the Hydro Jetter will harmlessly flow downstream where the drainage path is already clear.

What are the benefits of Hydro Jetting?
Hydro Jetting cleans your sewer like rodding can’t. When pipes are clogged there is the right tool for each type of situation. High Pressure Hydro Jetting might be just what you need. If you have cooking grease, rocks, soap scum from a laundry room, grease from a dishwasher or grease in commercial kitchen floor sinks then High Pressure Hydro Jetting is the right solution for your clogged pipes.

Hydro Jetting can easily cut through the most stubborn roots and debris and remove built-up mineral deposits and other obstructions clogging the inside of your drainage line. Although Hydro Jetting is strong enough to clear out roots from your sewer lines, any amount of root penetration is cause for serious concern.  Root penetration pervasive enough to cause repeated backups indicates that the roots have gotten thick enough over time to damage the pipe and its protective waterproof inner coating.

Because these situations all represent the accumulation of material build up over time they do not respond well to the traditional rooter type of cleaning. Traditional rootering (with a cable and cutting blade) pipes in these conditions may provide temporary relief but will NOT completely remove the material that has built up. In these instances, we here at Penny Plumbing recommend a video camera inspection to determine the seriousness of the condition, because sewer line replacement or other services may be required.
