Hydro Jetting & Picotte
What Is Hydro Jetting & Why Do I Need It?
Hydro jetting is the go-to solution for long-term results and has become more increasingly popular within the drain cleaning field in recent years. Hydro jetting is generally used when mechanical rods can’t successfully clear or remove a particular blockage such as grease, roots or mineral deposit.
A hydro jetter uses the force of water ranging from 3000 PSI (residential jetting equipment up to an 8” pipe) to 35,000 PSI (commercial equipment used for any line larger than 8”).
Standard drain cleaning equipment generally cannot properly clean a line once extended 100’ or further due to weight of cable and stress on motor. The hydro jetter is just as strong and effective. Whether it is cleaning a line 10 feet from the access point, or 210 feet from the access point, our quality equipment will get the job done.
While the jetter is a great resource for drain cleaning, there are some lines (mostly casted iron lines) that accumulate scale, heavy crust build-up and/or rust along the inner walls. We offer what is called a Picotte machine. This style of equipment is a point of use device that we can strategically scrape and clean inner walls of line to nearly a factory finish by using specialty blades, scrapers and attachments to complete the task.
