Why use a water jet to clear a blocked drain

Water Jetters cut through tree roots without getting jammed, water jet drain cleaning machines are the best way to clean your drain. They are less likely to get jammed inside a sewer blockage caused by a tree roots. A waterjet uses pressures of 3500psi to 5000 psi water pressure, powerful enough to clear Sydney’s most difficult blocked drains in your sewer pipes. To clean the sewer pipe and get it free from root intrusion we use machines and Water Jetters as they are the best way to get your drain clean.

Electric Eels

Rigid Electric Eels: these drain clearing devices have been around for over 50 years and can be used inside the house or outside the house but the cable which spins around at 1000 revolutions a minute this method catches the roots on the cable and if the blockage is too thick or too tough the cables get stuck in the root mess and can’t come out,

This is why using a high-pressure water jet is a better option because the high-pressure water jets use water to cut away the tree roots without getting tangled up in the roots causing the blockage. Whereas an electric eel can spin into the root ball blocking the sewer pipe and get stuck. A high pressure jet can also get stuck in the sewer pipe when the sewer pipe is broken and the water jet can leave the sewer pipe through the broken pipe and go into the dirt surrounding the sewer pipe. In this case we would need to locate the broken pipe using the colour drain camera and fix the pipe break appropriately.
