What Is Sewer Jetting?

What Is Sewer Jetting?

Sewer jetting, also known as hydro jetting, is a method licensed plumbers use to clear sewer mains and other lines. A sewer jetter operates by spraying water at high pressures to remove grease, blockages, and other waste inside sewer mains. Similar to a power washer that removes dirt and grime from decks and the siding of your home.

Do You Need Your Lines Jetted?

Zeek Plumbing typically recommends having a camera run through your sewer main or snaking the line before sewer jetting. However, restaurants and meat processing facilities often fill their sewer main with grease. The snake can clear a normal clog, but may have issues with a line packed with grease. The camera can help you see into the line to see if there is a break, if roots are blocking the line, or if the line even needs to be jetted. The jetter can clear all of the grease, but it will have issues if the pipe is broken or split.

Operating A Jetter

The concept of a jetter is fairly simple, but should only be operated by a licensed plumber. You connect water to the jetter, turn the machine on, and feed the jetter hose through the line you would like to clear. The hose is typically self propelled by the pressurized water, but you still need to assist in feeding the hose through the main. Depending on the nozzle at the end of the hose, there will be water spraying against the walls of the piping clearing debris. There are other hose attachments which can change the direction of the pressurized water.

What Does A Jetter Remove?

Zeek Plumbing typically sewer jets for commercial buildings, restaurants, meat processing facilities, etc. Sewer jetting is used to clear solidified grease, silt, and scale build up. However, Zeek Plumbing has also cleared sand, roots, waste, and fabric from the inside of sewer piping. Snaking the sewer main clears the clog, but can leave a portion of the debris inside the piping. Sewer jetting can clean and clear the remaining debris and grease from the inside.

Zeek Plumbing is always available at 866-635-0200 if you have any questions about whether or not your sewer main should be jetted. Please also refer to our Book Online Form if you would like to schedule a sewer jetting service.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!

Purchased a new natural gas grill and needed it to be hooked up to the gas line. Called Zeek in the morning and they came and hooked it up the same day! They were extremely professional. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing and will definitely use them in the future should the need arise.

We used Zeek a few weeks ago for a clogged pipe. At that time we noticed a leak in our septic pipe in the basement. So we asked them to give us a price to replace the pipe. The price sound reasonable so we set it up for them to come back. Tim, Rj and Rich where here 8:00am sharp and went right to work. We where only without toilets for a few hours. They did a amazing job and where finished by 3 pm. All 3 guys are extremely professional and and very friendly. They work well together and all enjoy what they are doMy wife and I would highly recommend them.

Super Bowl Sunday morning, Zeek Plumbing didn't hesitate to respond when we called them for assistance. Our bathroom backed up and flooded our basement causing us to make an emergency request to them. They were at our home immediately and saved the day!
