Keeping your pipes clean is essential maintenance for the health of your home and to keep your water system running smoothly. Having wastewater spill into your home because of a clog is a serious health hazard, and requires costly repairs. That’s why regular pipe cleaning, not just when you suspect a blockage, is recommended with Feltner’s Sewer and Pipe Services. We have licensed professionals in the Racine area that have advanced equipment to make the job quick and efficient.
Pipe Cleaning With The Experts
Over time, minerals, calcification, grease, and other products begin to cling to the interior of the pipe. This debris will then begin to grow as more become stuck to it. That’s why it’s important to treat this right away. Otherwise, the clog can quickly grow and choke the water flow of the entire pipe, resulting in possible backflow and other problems. Our experts have been fixing these problems of backflow and fractures with speed and efficiency, offering various repair and cleaning techniques to get the job done right the first time.
Thankfully, our hydro-jetting system can help prevent all of this and it is an easy, preventative solution. But before the cleaning can be performed, a video inspection needs to done on the desired pipe. This helps the technician identify where the clog is and the severity of it. It also helps our technician decide if the pipe is strong enough to handle the hydro jetting based on the age of the pipeline as well as the materials it is comprised of.
Once satisfied with the inspection, a hose fitted with a unique nozzle is inserted into an existing access point. The hose is also attached to a water tank that pressurizes the water, so it comes out in an intense blast. The nozzle allows for this blast to reach all areas of the pipe to remove even small pieces of the blockage. As they are removed, the pieces are flushed down with the water. It also has the ability to clean off mineral deposits on the walls, which helps prevent another clog from growing quickly again. This will add to the longevity of your pipes and keep your water flow stable and smooth.
It's recommended to hire professionals when a clog is particularly dense and large in size. Drain snakes may only puncture portions of the clog, leaving it to grow again in a short amount of time. It can also push it down further into the pipe, giving it a chance to travel down to the mainline. Chemical dissolvers are also generally toxic and can pose a possible health risk. There is also a possibility that it could damage your pipe if it is already weakened. With Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services, we help avoid these risks with our innovative, safe, and reliable hydro jetting equipment.
