A drain clog in your Fort Collins home or sewer drain can make using the plumbing in your home extremely unpleasant. There are a few signs that you should look for that indicate you have a clog including:
- Sinks that are slow to drain.
- Frequent need to plunge toilets.
- Standing water in showers or tubs.
- Fouls odors coming from the drain.
- A backup in the sink when running the dishwasher.
High Pressure Water Jetting Features
In the past, drain clogs were addressed by inserting a drain snake to remove enough of the clog to allow water to flow freely. This method is ineffective because it does not address the real cause of drain clogs. While debris such as hair, paper products and sanitary items contribute to a drain clog, there is also another factor to consider: build-up. Build-up along the walls of your drains accumulates over time from the residue in dirty water. As the build-up grows, it restricts water flow and catches items along the drain line. A drain snake will remove the stuck item, but not the build-up. This means without water jetting, you’ll be running into another clog sooner rather than later.
High pressure water jetting addresses both the item clogging the drain and the buildup on the walls of the drain. We use specialized nozzles that are inserted into the drain and blast high-pressured water into the system. The water removes both the clog and the buildup, restoring your drains back to their original diameter. High pressure water jetting is the only method that truly cleans and removes the entire clog.
High Pressure Water Jetting Benefits
While you can buy a drain snake at your local home improvement store, it will be ineffective and time consuming. High pressure water jetting has many benefits for home owners:
- Less chance of reoccurring clogs.
- Warranty on the work.
- Efficient drain cleaning ability.
- Safe and environmentally friendly.
