Why jet rodding is the best solution for blocked pipes

Jet rodding refers to the process of clearing blocked pipes, plumbing systems, and drains with high-pressure water systems.

If you have ever experienced a major pipe blockage, you will know that the issue can be a serious inconvenience. Blockages can occur for a number of reasons. Although they can often be avoided with regular drain cleaning, the reality is that unwanted obstructions do happen from time to time. The good news is that major blockages can be effectively resolved using a modern and safe process known as jet rodding — read on to find out what it involves and why it works so well when clearing a range of blockages…

What causes blocked drains and pipes?

Pipes, plumbing systems, and drains can become blocked for a range of reasons. Some of the most common causes include tree roots, hair, grease, soap scum, wipes, and paper towels that may have been flushed down the toilet.

Other factors that often cause obstructions include incorrect pipe fall, incorrect use of waste pipes when connected to a fixture, and concrete or tiler’s grout being rinsed down the drain.

How does jet rodding work?

Jet rodding refers to a process in which high-pressure water jetting is used to unblock underground assets such as sewer and stormwater pipes. The method is extremely effective because it works to clear even hard-to-break debris and large blockages. The jet rodder equipment is guided to the source of the blockage by CCTC drain cameras, which means that it is possible to both identify the cause of the current blockage and detect future blockages that could occur.

Although jet rodding makes use of very powerful, high pressure, the force of the water does not cause any damage to drainage. It makes it a safe and reliable option that is suitable even when clearing major and industrial-sized blockages.

When can you use it?

Jet rodding can be used to clear a broad range of pipes, plumbing systems, and drains, but it is particularly effective when unblocking underground assets like sewer and stormwater pipes.

Sewer blockages are often caused by a build-up of debris or when pipes are damaged in some way. They can also be blocked by large foreign objects like tree roots. Jet rodding is often the most effective method when it comes to these types of blockages because it is extremely powerful but won’t cause any further damage to the existing structure.

Stormwater drains, on the other hand, generally become blocked by leaf debris and tree roots. It can also be blocked due to cracks and breakages in the pipes. It can cause some serious issues to one’s property and is best resolved through jet rodding.
