Hydrojetting

Virginia Beach Hydrojetting Services

Keeping Your Plumbing Systems Healthy

The process of hydrojetting works much like it sounds. A powerful jet of pressurized water propels a jetting tool down your sewer line. The jet uses a power similar to that of a pressure washer to clean a deck or sidewalk. The water blasted through your sewer lines is strong enough to remove the most stubborn debris, leaving your pipes clean as the day they were installed!

Most hydrojet systems have two types of jets. A forward facing jet provides an initial powerful blast that removes looser obstructions and clears minor debris. A second set of reverse jets provides the power to force the jetting tool down into the pipe. The jetting tool is the final, powerful hammer blow that removes any clogs and built up sediment in the pipeline.

Hydrojetting delivers water at pressures of 1500 to 4000 pounds per minute! This is sufficient to remove even the toughest of clogs and packed sediment from even the largest of draining systems.

How Is Hydrojetting Better than Other Methods?

Hydrojetting is powerful enough to remove many types of clogs from your sewer and drain lines. It is especially effective at tackling sediment and grease clogs that are not easily removed by other methods.

Hydrojetting is an excellent solution that saves the extra time and expense of major drain reconstruction. Before hydrojetting technology was available, the only solution to such drain problems was to remove the clogged section of piping and either replace it or clear the clog manually.

Hydrojetting vs. Drain Snaking

Drain snaking often does not pull against the sides of the drain sufficiently to remove a grease clog; the snake will simply penetrate through the grease, instead of ‘grabbing’ it, as intended.

Hydrojetting vs. Liquid Drain Cleaners

Liquid drain cleaners also fail to remove such clogs because they do not have the necessary combination of solvent and force. A hydrojet has the best of both worlds. The water pressure provides the physical force similar to a snaking system, and the water itself provides the liquid solvent to break up the grease and sediment and wash it away.

When Is Hydrojetting Required?

Hydrojetting is a professional process focused on eliminating the most serious clogs. The service is often requested for large-scale plumbing issues, such as those that arise in public or commercial sites. We regularly work with hotels, shopping centers, churches, and schools that call for periodic hydrojetting services. These high-occupancy areas are more likely to experience major blockages in their plumbing lines. There are also smaller-force hydrojetting systems that are more suited for residential use.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “Jon S. came out this evening with a sewer backup. He was very thorough trying to find out why it had occurred in order to hopefully prevent it from happening again. We purchased the house a few weeks ago. He found a 2nd sewer cleanout under our front schrubs other than the one in the back yard. This helped to alleviate our concern that the backup could be from underneath our home. He spent extra time with me this evening to go over common causes of sewer backups. He was very kind and courteous and professional.” - Kevin S.
  • “OTHERS LEFT SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS? I could not be more pleased with my recent service from Eric V. with American Mechanical. Eric responded to a service request for a strange high pitched squeal we've been hearing from our toilet. We had already been through two other companies in the area, both whom left scratching their heads with no answers. Eric was like a bloodhound on the trail. He explored a few possibilities, identified the possible issue, then tracked it every step of the way. We are currently in a rental, so our knowledge of past issues at this residence is limited. He was able to not only pinpoint the issue but also other factors throughout the house at different valves that were contributing to the noise. Eric is without a doubt the most thorough, persistent and invested plumber I have ever seen. I would highly recommend American Mechanical to anyone in the area, and would insist on Eric V. for a plumbing call. From their scheduling call to their service specialists, American Mechanical delivers top notch customer service all around.” - Amanda R.
  • “I recently had a service visit from the electricians Steve B. and John G. to complete electrical repairs on my home. They were competent, nice guys who did a fabulous job for me! I am very pleased with the outcome of their efforts. I also had a service visit from one of American Mechanical's plumbing technicians Robin W. and he equally did a fantastic job in fixing my commode which needed new tank bolts (which were no longer available) for my American Standard toilet. The technician was patient and was able to find compatible tank bolts to make the needed repair. All of these technicians were terrific and did a "beautiful" job for me. These are fine representatives of American Mechanical and I would highly recommend their services if you ever need an electrician or plumbing repair.” - Ed W.
  • “Eric V is a very honest hard working young man who knows what "customer service" really means. I really appreciated his honesty and his desire to do the job right. After the initial pressure washing of the sewer lines on 8/10/15, I was told by another technician (not Eric) that we would be fine after $495.00 charge. On 9/22/15 the other technician had to come back and pressure wash the pipes again because we were backing up again for another $495.00. So, now I was angry because we had only gone past the 30 day warranty by 12 days and we had to pay another $495.00. We also had to pay for a video scoping of the line and we were given a discount for that procedure (that cost $250.00) which I was told was a discounted rate from $325.00. Eric was the technician who came to do the video. He said the pipes were cast iron and looked to be in good shape and the last five feet before the city line had some roots in it that should be removed. That would require installing a two way clean-out for $450.00 and running a big snake to cut the roots. Eric did this job after much work at trying to remove a bush that was sitting over the pipe and discovering the water line ran directly above the sewer pipe. He was honest and hard working as I stated earlier. So, this job cost a total of $1,690.00 and probably would not have cost that much if Eric had been the first technician we saw. Eric did only what needed to be done and didn't try to "sell" a bigger job. I would call American Mechanical again as long as Eric was my technician. That is my honest review.” - Scott C.
  • “Joe went out of his way to come to my home on Christmas Eve. Par for the course for American Mechanical. He was prompt, professional and a pleasure to deal with. I will never use any other company! I love this company! Every interaction I have had with them has been nothing short of amazing. The staff…from owner to receptionist…has always been kind and courteous. I will never go elsewhere!” - Melanie G. Virginia Beach
  • “Joel was on time, courteous, and listened to what I had to say prior to offering solutions. Had to leave my job to complete another but said he would return. He really did and in a timely fashion. This is my third service with American Mechanical, they are my plumbers for life. Thank you for doing an excellent job at a very reasonable rate.” - Thomas
  • “Rich P. is a life saver! My upstairs bathroom sprung a leak and flooded the floor. My home warranty service couldn't get anyone out for 24 hours. We called American Mechanical and Rich P. was knocking on the door in roughly 30 minutes! Rich took one look and knew exactly what the issue was. Not only did he fix the problem, he also took extra time talking to a representative with the warranty company to help ensure I'm reimbursed. He did it all with a smile! He was very personable and professional. He really was the rainbow at the end of the storm. His calm demeanor, small talk and positive attitude really helped me let go of the stress and put a smile on my face. I can't say thank enough for his help. I'm definitely storing his business card in a safe spot...just in case!!!"” - Sherelle O.
  • “American Mechanical, Incorporated plumbing technician Jon S. just left after spending 3 hours to resolve my non-functioning DELTA kitchen faucet issue. He thoroughly trouble-shot the problem, cleaned assumed culprit and even got on the phone with the DELTA representative to follow up on my communications earlier with them. With DELTA’s help, Jon bypassed the bad switch and got running water to my faucet! Joy! Joy! Thankfully, Jon did not give up and was able to resolve my problem just in time for a party that we are hosting tomorrow!” - Sondra Mulkey
  • “Chuck was great with knowing exactly what was wrong and was a straight shooter in sharing information of what costs would be should we tackle another huge project. We’ve had other plumbers out before working on the same issue and Chuck was the only one who actually FIXED the problem.” - Gustavo O.
