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

  • “You’ve been patient and understanding of our needs and concerns as we progressed from talking about a combi-tankless unit through its installation. While you are probably more accustomed to fielding problems, allow me to offer some compliments. Our experience with American Mechanical has been most unusual. Never before have we worked with a company that seemingly couldn’t do enough to satisfy our requests. Every concern was met with a serious and immediate attempt at solution. Communications were easy and two-way. The gentlemen who made the initial installation (Tony and Bobby) as well as the men who did the later work (Trey and Dave) treated our home like a home, not just another workplace. We enjoyed having them here, and kind of missed them when the work was finished. They did their work artfully – even making a special effort to get the recirculating pump control in an easy to use location. Finally, they did a nice job of cleaning up after each hard day of work. There is a company that advertises that it is “our company for life”. Well, that’s how we feel about American Mechanical after this experience. You played a critical role in creating that commitment. We’ve already called upon your company for a plumbing repair; and we’ll be calling you soon to talk about a whole house generator. We look forward to many years of work together in the future.” - John Stewart
  • “Each time I use American Mechanical the experience gets even better. The text message with the techs picture and background ensures I know who I’m expecting. The tech tracking link shows me where my technician is and exactly when to expect his arrival. The personal attention, explanations, and quality of service of the tech is always outstanding. Kudos for not being satisfied with just doing the same old thing and be willing to continue to improve the customer experience.” - Bruce & Cathy
  • “I want to express my appreciation and satisfaction with the follow-up work David and Randy completed today on my duct system. They were able to quickly and satisfactorily make the necessary repair and add to that, their professional and positive attitude and that makes for an upbeat and pleasant experience. Once again, it was a pleasure doing business with American Mechanical.” - Mike Barrett
  • “American Mechanical recently installed a HALO air purifier to our new system, (also installed by American Mechanical), and we are very pleased with it. Air quality is of great importance to us, especially because of allergies we have. Since the HALO was installed, the quality of air is greatly improved. I would recommend the HALO purifier and American Mechanical to anyone interested in improving the quality of the air in their homes.” - Judy M
  • “*** ***** went the extra distance and found a problem in our attic with a damaged furnace pipe that could have caused further problems. We called upon the same company to fix the issue at minimal cost. *** ***** was knowledgeable, personable, and courteous. Thank you for your dedication to your customer's well being.” - Travis H
  • “**** came back to do some additional work after an install. He spoke very highly of his company and made us feel even more satisfied that we chose the right business for all the work done.

  • “Robert was very informative, friendly, and helpful!” - Guillermo F
  • “**** * came out to our house to help with our A/C unit. He was very kind. You could tell he really takes pride in his work. He would explain what was wrong, even if it was his mistake. He was a pleasure to work with.” - Christy B
  • “Tony J. from American Mechanical was outstanding! He and his partner Dennis S. did everything right, from calling and arriving early to clean up and making sure I understand what was done, even to the point of programming the new digital thermostat. I would and will recommend American Mechanical and ask for Tony J. and Dennis S.” - Michael B
