Why Do Plumbers Use Jet Blasters To Clear Drains?

blocked drains

Jet blasting is probably one of the most effective drainage solutions to clear out blocked drains and pipes on your Sydney house or commercial establishment. Jet blasting works by pressurising the water, meaning it uses significantly less amount of water to clean your drains and pipes.

Besides, this equipment is much more useful than a standard water hose. This makes jet blasters the perfect solution to clear out blocked drains in residential as well as commercial properties. We at SPS Eastern Suburbs use these blasters in all pipe and drain cleaning tasks.

Jet Blasters- What Are They?

The equipment used for a jet blaster includes a huge water tank with a hose attached to it. The hose is specially made to withstand the constant high pressure of the water. They are designed in a certain way, which makes it easy to clean out openings with pipes. The force of the water is so high that it effectively cleans out all dirt and debris clogged in your drain.

Clearing Heavy Blockages Easily

  • Build-Up of Mildew: It’s very common to have mildew build-up around your house. Besides being hideous and emitting a foul odour, it is incredibly challenging to get rid of it using basic cleaning products. However, a team of residential plumbers can quickly get rid of it by using the highly-effective jet blaster, while saving a considerable amount of water as well.
  • Oil and Grease Blockages: Jet blasting is used to get rid of oil and grease build-up in large commercial establishments as well. The high-pressure water effectively gets rid of all oil blockages in the pipe.
  • Cement and other Debris Sludge: Cement sludge is probably one of the most challenging substances to clear out from pipes and drains. Standard drain cleaning products are mostly ineffective. However, a jet blaster can eliminate the sludge without causing any damage to your drains.
  • Tree Roots: Getting rid of tree roots within the pipe used to be a very daunting task. However, plumbers now use high-pressured jet blasters that easily breakdown the roots with damaging your pipes. Costly excavations are no longer required to get rid of them.
  • Rocks and Silt: It isn’t uncommon for silt and rock residues to form in your drains over time. Although rock, dust, and sand are relatively easy to wash away into the pipes from concrete or roofs, they stick together and form into a solid mass. This mass forms in the drain block it and result in flooding or serious damage. Jet blasting breaks down this mass and clears it out thoroughly.

Commercial Plumber

People believe that any skilled plumber can handle tasks on both the residential and commercial properties with the same efficiency. However, the skills and experience required are significantly different for these two types of properties.

At SPS Eastern Suburbs, we advise people to understand the difference in the nature of work and the types of skills involved in completing a job to customer satisfaction. We suggest them to hire a skilled commercial plumber for a commercial property installation and repair plumbing work.

What Can You Expect From A Commercial Plumber In Sydney?

Commercial plumbing projects are complicated because the plumbing installations are in continuous use and handle more water pressure. Their intricate working sets them apart from the residential systems, which are much simpler to deal with. Here is a detailed look at the type of jobs handled by commercial plumbers and the kind of work you can expect them to do.

  • In-Depth Knowledge of Codes – A professional plumber needs a full understanding of the building and installation codes. These codes refer to rules and guidelines laid down by the local authorities, and the codes for commercial properties differ from those for residential properties.
  • The codes are fewer in number and easier to follow for the latter. A plumber working on commercial plumbing jobs needs a complete and expert understanding of these complex regulations. These experts undergo training, which ensures that all the commercial plumbing installations successfully pass the inspections.
  • 24/7 Emergency Plumbing Services– Companies that handle commercial plumbing problems need to be equipped to handle large-scale, complex, and emergency problems. They need the right equipment, tools, and manpower to fix these issues.
  • While you can fix a residential property plumbing problem by sending even one plumber, a plumbing repairs on commercial premises may require a full team. Instant response means to be in readiness day and night with the necessary equipment and plumbers to attend to the plumbing issues.
  • Range of Services – It is essential to choose a plumber with skills to attend bigger jobs as well as willingness to do small work when called for. Many businesses hire companies for big jobs and forget to ensure that they attend to small tasks as well. This results in difficulties in finding a plumber at the last moment when a small plumbing problem arises on the property. A well-established commercial plumbing company can handle a wide range of plumbing works and will accept both large-scale and small scale jobs when you call them. They can manage tasks such as new installations as well as assessment & diagnostics to repair of existing ones.

Tree roots seek water and nutrition, and they can grow to any length to achieve their objective. They are so resilient that no amount of obstacles can stop them from reaching the source. Your sewer lines may develop hairline cracks here and there for various reasons, and that is enough for these intruders to get into the sewer and thrive.

You become aware of their existence only after the drain is completely blocked. If you find yourself dealing with this problem, call SPS Eastern Suburbs without delay. We are known for our expertise in clearing root blocks in drains.

How Do Tree Roots Intrude Into A Drain?

All trees have primary and tertiary roots. The former keep the tree stable while the latter absorbs water and nutrition. Temporary roots grow in the direction of water sources. Let us see how the roots of a tree growing on your property find a way into your drainage system.

  • A vapour is formed by the warm water and wastage inside the sewer. It seeks to escape to the cooler soil around.  It cannot escape from a sewer system that has no cracks or loose joints.
  • But this ideal situation does not exist all the time. Sometimes, sewers develop small cracks, or the joints become loose, and the vapour finds a way out. The opportunistic tree roots in search of nutrition sense it and start growing in the direction of the point from where the vapour is escaping.
  • Once they locate the source, their feelers grow over it and find the cracks or loose joints from where they get an entry into the sewer. Even a hairline crack is a good entry point.
  • In the pipes, there is no shortage of nutrition, and they grow rapidly widening the crack as well.
  • If these roots aren’t removed immediately, they form a netlike tough barrier in the sewer, and the problem gets aggravated. The barrier does not allow food particles, toilet paper, grease, etc. to flow through the pipe and a larger clog forms which blocks your sewer system.

Addressing the Problem

There is a solution to this problem. Expert plumbers in Sydney not only remove the tree roots from the clogged drains but repair the sewage system to make it fully efficient. If they find that replacement line installation is necessary to make it crack-proof, they inform you, and after your approval, will complete the job. They follow various steps and techniques to remove the roots:

  • A root cutter machine is used to remove a stubborn root blockage in the sewerage system. The trained plumbers use this equipment efficiently to cut the hard cluster of roots easily.
  • Sometimes, cutting the roots does not solve the problem entirely, and the plumbers need to scan the entire system to locate the roots spread around.
  • After detecting the roots, they remove them by using a hydro-jetter or physical removal techniques.
