Why Jet Blasting Is The Best Tool To Unblock Your Drain
Blocked drains are a common and frustrating problem that many homeowners and businesses will encounter. When you get a blocked drain you will likely want it fixed as quickly as possible by a Brisbane plumber. But, what type of Brisbane plumber should you call? Brisbane plumbers who offer high-pressure drain cleaning services using jet blasting are few, but it is more than worth it to get a Brisbane plumber who does.
What is Jet Blasting?
Jet blasting is the latest technology in unblocking drains, sewers and stormwater pipes. It works by sending up to 5000psi of water into your pipes through a flexible hose. Because Jet Blasting uses water to unblock your drains, it is able to pass through elbows, narrow pipes and all types of materials.
A Brisbane plumber will use a wide range of nozzle heads depending on the problem that your drains are facing. A common problem seen by a Brisbane plumber is tree root infiltration. For this problem, nozzles which are designed to cut through the tree roots are used instead of your generic nozzle. There are many other common problems seen by your local Brisbane plumber include:
- Sanitary Items
How Does A Brisbane Plumber Use Jet Blasting?
Before jet blasting your Brisbane plumber will perform a CCTV inspection to assess the condition of your pipes and the cause of your blockage. Once identified your local Brisbane plumber will change the nozzle they use accordingly and start to unblock your drain through Jet Blasting.
Once your drains have been cleaned, your Brisbane plumber will advise you of the next action. If your drain was blocked by tree roots, this problem will occur again without further action. This is because tree roots infiltrate your pipe through a leak. Despite the tree roots now being removed, the leak is still present. Getting a Brisbane plumber to do regular Jet Blasting or replacing the pipes are both options you will likely be presented with.
Why Jet Blasting Is The Best Option
Unlike other tools used to unblock drains, jet blasting also cleans the inside of your pipes. This will remove the sediment that has built up over time and also extend the life of your pipes or drains. Other important reasons to use jet blasting include:
- Water only
- Less labour
- Generally cheaper
- Safer for your pipes
Jet blasting will normally be finished within an hour making it one of the fastest ways for a Brisbane plumber to clean your pipes. This is much faster than other drain cleaning tools such as the drain snake.
Jet blasting is an environmentally-friendly method of drain cleaning as it only uses high-pressure water. Many other methods involve the use of a chemical which are harmful to both the environment and the health of your pipes.
With all of these benefits, jet blasting is definitely the best choice. Not all Brisbane plumbers have a jet blaster, however, because they are expensive to buy and maintain. At The Brisbane Plumbers, we have jet blasting services to get your drains cleaned and working ASAP.
