Unveiling the Magic: Hydro-Jetting Explained Step by Step!

So how does it work? We’ll send out a technician to meet with you and conduct a video inspection of your sewer line. From the camera footage, we’ll be able to identify clog locations and determine if we need to break any tree roots down before hydro-jetting.

If we determine that hydro-jetting is the best fix for the blockage, we’ll bring our specialized jetter tool and select a nozzle based on the drain size and clog type. The process starts by inserting the nozzle into the sewer pipe through the cleanout opening, initiating a high-pressure water blast. The force of the water swiftly flushes out the accumulated debris, clearing the clog. Pretty cool, right?

This company is AMAZING. They came out to repair our furnace, and unfortunately found a critical safety issue which required immediate same day replacement. The tech explained the issue simply and in a way that I could understand. They were also extremely gracious about working…

Couldn’t of asked for a better experience working with Taylor and the whole team at Thelen Mechanical. We were in a emergency situation and they went above and beyond to get our new furnace installed the very next day. Would 100% recommend them.

Sewer Blocks 101: When to Consider Hydro-Jetting

Did you know that restaurant sewers are common culprits for blockages? All that grease and food scraps – yuck! Not every sewer line is suitable for hydro-jetting – it’s most commonly used in commercial settings where sewer pipes are larger with more significant build-ups. If you’re a restaurant owner, or property manager for a larger building (especially older or historical buildings!), keep an eye on the status of your sewer. If you experience a back-up, hydro-jetting might be the answer you’re looking for.

What types of blockages can hydro-jetting handle?

The good news is that hydro-jetting can handle a wide variety of sewer clearing jobs from blasting through grease and oil build-ups, breaking up tree roots, cleaning out debris, washing out ice, sand, and sludge, and much more!

Does hydro-jetting use any chemicals?

No. Hydro-jetting is 100% plain old water with no added chemicals or enzymes. High-pressured water is very powerful.

Is hydro-jetting safe for the environment?

Since hydro-jetting only uses a powerful stream of water to clear out sewer blockages, it’s very safe for humans and the environment. In the unlikely event that a leak occurs during hydro-jetting, you don’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals seeping into the soil.
