Hydro Jetting

Virginia Beach Hydro Jetting Services

Keeping Your Plumbing Systems Healthy

Hydro jetting is one of the most effective plumbing services available to safely clean sewer lines. The process of hydro jetting 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 hydro jet 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.

Hydro jetting 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 Hydro jetting Better than Other Methods?

Hydro jetting 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.

Hydro jetting is an excellent solution that saves the extra time and expense of major drain reconstruction. Before hydro jetting 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.

Hydro jetting 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.

Hydro jetting 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 hydro jet 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 Hydro jetting Required?

Hydro jetting 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 hydro jetting services. These high-occupancy areas are more likely to experience major blockages in their plumbing lines. There are also smaller-force hydro jetting systems that are more suited for residential use.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “American Mechanical responded quickly to my request for a detailed estimate on a needed service. The office staff was polite and professional as well as kind and courteous! Prior to the visit I received a text message telling me who to expect –including a picture- as well as personal information about the individual that helped me feel less anxious about inviting a stranger into my home. Rodney W. arrived exactly when he said he would and was clearly knowledgeable about the service and equipment involved. He explained everything in ways I could understand and was patient with my questions! I was impressed with this company and everyone there. It was so nice to talk to people who genuinely seem to like their jobs and were so helpful!” - Lynette B.
  • “This company is by far the best company that I have had the honor of working with. The whole crew from the administrative side to the installation crew are a pleasure to work with! Everyone is authentic and knows their stuff. Along with the generator I had an electrical panel upgrade. The panel is so neat and tidy inside that the panel cover should be made of glass so people can see the beautiful work these guys do! A++ rating from me.” - Michael A.
  • “I am in the market for a whole house stand-by generator and called American Mechanical for an estimate. They sent an electrician, Rodney W., who was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and likeable. He answered all my questions and gave me a complete proposal for a turnkey installation while he was at my house. The next day I had some more questions about the proposal. He answered them promptly and courteously. Nothing could have been better about this experience! If the installers exhibit the same qualities of customer service that Rodney does many American Mechanical customers will be very pleased.” - Tom C.
  • “We called about a gas leak and American Mechanical sent someone out promptly. Ed called when he was on the way and arrived on time. Off to a good start. He introduced himself and gave me his card. While I was taking him to the attic, he said he read the notes. He read the notes people! If you want your customers to feel like they matter, send a service person that recognizes you as a customer and knows your history. Kudos to Ed! He also fixed our problem, explained the problem, and gave us options to avoid the problem in the future.” - Sharon D.
  • “Wow! Ed S. at American Mechanical is one of the best professionals I have ever encountered. Ed is very patient, kind, and answers all questions – even from a worry wart like myself who may ask them multiple times. I had a new tankless hot water heater installed and was stressed when a few steps were needed to complete the project. Ed was always available to answer questions and he clearly has a ton of knowledge about plumbing and natural gas services. Thank you Ed at American Mechanical for providing quality service and doing the job right. Special shout out to Angela in the dispatch office for being so kind and understanding when I called – especially during these trying times kindness goes a long, long way.” - Heather F.
  • “Ed at American Mechanical fixed a plumbing issue that had been plaguing us for over a year! He was the best repair guy we have ever had! He was on time, professional and thorough. He shared his knowledge with our family about exactly what the issue was and stayed to make sure that everything was fixed. Ed was everything and more than anyone could want from a repair service. And, the women in the office of American Mechanical were so receptive and helpful! They were kind and seemed genuinely happy to answer the telephone, listen to me and they wanted to help me. American Mechanical is my best find this year! And, as an Operations Manager in my work life, I will be calling them for their expertise no only at home- but at work as well.” - Tania K
  • “My wife and I decided to go with American Mechanical to install our new GENERAC stand by generator unit. A team came to the house to install the preliminary work such as gas line preparation and installation of a transfer switch (to include wiring into the main panel). Trey, John, Chris and Noah were just amazing! They worked well together, orchestrated perfectly. As a handy man myself I can appreciate the extra care taken with everything they did. They were meticulous – and they actually use a leveler to make sure their panel and platform were level. You may laugh, but small attention to detail is what separates the professionals and the amateurs. We were very pleased with their work and they represent American Mechanical well. Staff like these men are the ones who are a valuable asset to their company!” - Raoul W.
  • “Rodney W. from American Mechanical repaired an electrical issue I recently had at my home. He displayed stellar customer service skills and the professionalism and knowledge of a seasoned electrician. Rodney patiently listened as I described the issue to him. He knew right away where the problem was and had the issue resolved within a short period of time! Rodney was very kind to Max, our dog who has absolutely no concept of his size but yet wants to “help”. Rodney and the American Mechanical staff made the entire experience pleasantly an easy one. He is definitely an asset to American Mechanical and truly appreciated by me. Many thanks to all!” - Kathryn B
  • “This is the third time Rich P. has come to my house for plumbing issues. Each time he has been very knowledgeable as well as pleasant. Rich also allowed me to watch him while he did the work and taught me as he performed the repairs. I have learned a lot about plumbing as a new homeowner all thanks to Rich. Thank you so much!” - K. Terry
