How do sewer lines get blocked?

Sewer lines can become blocked due to various reasons. Here are some common causes of sewer line blockages:

  1. Accumulated Debris: Over time, debris such as dirt, grease, food particles, and other solid materials can accumulate inside the sewer pipes, leading to blockages.
  2. Tree Root Intrusion: Tree roots seek out water sources, and if there are small cracks or gaps in the sewer pipes, roots can grow into the pipes, causing blockages and even pipe damage.
  3. Foreign Objects: Objects flushed down the toilet or washed down the drains, such as sanitary products, wipes, paper towels, or excessive amounts of toilet paper, can get stuck and create blockages in the sewer lines.
  4. Structural Issues: Aging sewer pipes can develop cracks, breaks, or collapse, obstructing the flow of sewage and causing blockages.
  5. Grease Buildup: Pouring grease or fats down the drains can cause them to solidify inside the sewer pipes, narrowing the passage and leading to blockages.
  6. Misaligned or Bellied Pipes: Poor installation or shifting of the sewer pipes can result in misaligned or sagging sections where waste can accumulate and cause blockages.

It is important to address sewer line blockages promptly to prevent sewage backups, unpleasant odors, and potential damage to the plumbing system. Professional plumbers can use specialized tools, such as sewer jetters, to clear the blockages and restore proper flow in the sewer lines.

What is a hot jetter?

A sewer hot jetter is a specialized equipment used in plumbing and sewer maintenance. It is designed to clean and clear clogged or blocked sewer lines. The hot jetter utilizes high-pressure water jets to remove debris, grease, and other obstructions from the sewer pipes. The water is heated to a high temperature to enhance its effectiveness in breaking down tough blockages. The hot jetters’ powerful water jets can dislodge tree roots, sediment buildup, and other materials that can cause sewer line blockages. Professional plumbers and sewer maintenance crews commonly use this equipment to ensure proper sewage system functioning and flow.

Why use hot water to clear drains?

Removing sewerage blockagesHot water is preferred over cold water for removing sewerage blockages due to its enhanced dissolving power and thermal expansion properties. The higher energy of hot water enables it to dissolve greasy deposits and substances sticking to the pipe walls more effectively. Additionally, the thermal expansion caused by hot water can create pressure and help dislodge obstructions. Hot water is especially effective in liquefying and flushing away grease, fats, and oils, preventing them from forming stubborn blockages. Combining hot water and cleaning agents also improves the cleaning action, effectively removing debris and sediments. However, using hot water cautiously and seeking professional guidance is important to avoid damaging the sewer pipes.

Why drain line jetting is better for drains

High-pressure drain line jetting is superior to cleaning and renewing sewer lines. It removes all buildup and debris, leaving drains spotlessly clean and free-flowing. When combined with drain additives, it eliminates odors and liquefies fats, oils, and greases. High-pressure jetting also reconditions drain lines, descaling and restoring optimal flow. The benefits include cleaner pipes, odor-free drains, enhanced drain flow, and an extended clean drain guarantee. Incorporating high-pressure jetting into your drain maintenance routine ensures efficient and odor-free drains.
