Drain clogs are a problem every homeowner will eventually face. Materials or objects can become stuck in the toilet and sink drains, or build up over time resulting in slow drains or overflows. When a plunger won’t move the clog, you will need something more powerful. Plumbers have a number of tools available for clogs, each designed for different types of clogs. Common tools a plumber in Houston uses is a plumbing auger or the hydro jet for clogs nothing else can handle.
The auger is ideal for minor clogs such as a toy stuck in a line, too much toilet paper, or a food blockage in a kitchen drain. Hydro jetting is the best solution for clogs an auger can’t remove, such as heavy grease build up or tree roots. Hydro jetting can remove pipe corrosion, sand, silt, scale build up, hair clogs, and other residues that cling to pipe walls and build up over time. The service can provide significant improvement to older plumbing lines with years of buildup constricting the pipes. There is some risk to older pipes for damage during the cleaning process. Only a licensed plumber in Houston should attempt the task, to ensure proper use and technique.
Restaurants require routine hydro jetting to remove grease and food residue build up. Hydro jetting cleans down to the pipe walls, and no other method of drain cleaning can do so as effectively. Furthermore, it’s environmentally friendly, using only water and no harsh chemicals.
Hydro jetting uses highly pressurized water with a specialized nozzle for providing a 360-degree cleaning action of the pipe. Hydro jetting is typically provided through a clean out, which is an opening that allows a plumber in Houston to access the sewer pipe. With a powerful enough hydro jet, tree roots can also be broken up. However, before using the hydro jet, a Benjamin Franklin plumber will provide an inspection of the drain or sewer with a specialized camera to determine the cause of the problems, and if the pipe is damaged.

The inspection provides not only the identification of the problem, but also the exact location and depth of the affected area.
