Can a Hydro-Jetter Clear Roots from a Sewer Line?

February 4, 2014

One of the biggest problems you can encounter with your sewer line is the danger imposed by tree roots. The roots are attracted to the water in your sewer and water line. Though they move slowly, they can be absolutely relentless: crushing the pipe over time and/or sending roots through tiny breaches in the pipe to clog the sewer line itself. A professional plumber can help you with this issue, but if you get the wrong service, they can end up tearing your yard to shreds in the process of dealing with the issue. Hydro-jet technology, offers an alternative to more traditional excavation services. Can a hydro-jetter clear roots from the sewer line? If operated by the right Raleigh drain cleaning technician, absolutely.

The hydro-jetter is a serious piece of equipment: a pump and line combination that can produce up to 4,000 psi (pounds per square inch) of pressure. Tips on the end spin around, releasing the water and literally blasting the tree roots out of the sewer line. The pressure can get rid of the roots without damaging the pipe itself, and it doesn?t need to rely on a mechanical snake, which often gets stuck in the pipe when dealing with tree roots. Furthermore, it does the job without tearing up your yard, leaving your lawn, shrubs and the tree itself intact. In some cases, a chemical herbicide can be run through the pipe to kill any lingering roots, then the entire system can be flushed out before regular functions are restored.
