Hydrojetting Services

Hydrojetting Services throughout the Virginia Beach Area

Responsive, Reliable, Trustworthy – Three words describe American Mechanical HVAC technician , Jon Schemetti. Early Sunda... More y morning, I discovered two large wet spots forming on my bathroom ceiling. I climbed into my attic to check my electric water heater and found water in the drain pan and all over my attic floor around the heater. I immediately shut off my water main and called American Mechanical because they had replaced my water heater four years ago and I initially thought my water heater had failed again. Within an hour or so, Jon Schemetti called to say he would be here soon. He called back soon again after to say he was on his way. He asked me what color my water heater pipes were.  I went back to the attic to check and discovered the leak was from a blown brass coupling seal leading to the water heater. Jon quickly replaced a section of copper pipe and installed a new brass coupling. He could have tried to sell me on a new water heater, but instead he was honest and only charged me $125 for the repair, which was extremely fair since it was the weekend emergency call. American Mechanical continues to earn their first place standing in my book for all my HVAC, plumbing, and electrical repairs.  Thank you Jon and American Mechanical!"

What Is Hydrojetting?

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 Drain Cleaning 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.
