    What is “hydro jetting”?

    Pipe cleaning is commonly performed by a technique known as sewer jetting. Sewer jetting is the application of streams of high-pressure water for use within pipes for cleaning and debris removal. Water at the correct high pressure can cut roots, dissolve blockages, emulsify grease and soaps while spray washing pipe wall surfaces. As part of the jetting process, the water from the nozzle can also wash away accumulated dirt or debris on the bottom of the pipe at the same time.

    Sewer jetting

    For sewer jetting, a jetting nozzle is attached to the end of a length of high-pressure hose with the other end connected to a high-pressure water pump. Jetting nozzles have small precision-machined orifices or jets to restrict water flow from the jetting pump thus causing high pressure to build within hose. As the pressurized water is expelled from the nozzle jets it reverts from pressure to velocity (speed) creating thrust that allows the nozzle to pull the jetting hose. With the system pressurized, high pressure jetting hose coiled on a hydraulic powered hose reel (up to 500′) is released by the operator who controls the travel speed and distance of the nozzle up the pipe.

    Pressurized water expelled from the nozzle jets cleans debris and removes pipe blockages or roots from the inside of the pipe while traveling through the pipe. Optimum cleaning is achieved when the hose is being rewound onto the hydraulic reel. During this action, water from the nozzle jets effectively forms a curtain or wall of high-pressure water that forces (or rakes) the debris downstream. Sewer jetting technology can be applied to clean all size pipe diameters with the appropriate size of high pressure jetting unit.

    Potential applications for high pressure jetting units

    Sanitary or Mainline Sewers

    Located under streets and roads that connect building laterals to a municipal wastewater treatment plant for treatment. Wastewater flows freely through sewers via gravity. Sewers are connected at various intervals by manholes (maintenance access point) that in some applications will allow for a change of direction of wastewater flow. Municipal sewers can range in size from pipes as small as 6 inches, increasing in diameter as more and more laterals connect to the system. Sewer blockages can form as a result of root infiltration, food grease buildup, soap residue buildup and dirt and debris accumulation. Blockages can also occur from pipe failure or collapse that will require excavation to correct. Private sanitary wastewater collection systems of similar construction can be found on privately owned property connecting buildings in apartment and office complexes, universities or other large campus-type facilities that ultimately discharge into a municipal wastewater systems.

    Laterals

    Pipes that connect building drainage systems to municipal sewers are considered to be part of the property and the responsibility of the property owner. Typically, laterals are 4″ and 6″ diameter pipes that connect directly to municipal sewer pipelines, but can be larger for commercial or industrial buildings. Lateral blockages can form as a result of root infiltration, food grease buildup, soap residue buildup and dirt and debris accumulation. Blockages can also occur from pipe failure or collapse that will require excavation to correct.

    Drains

    Drainage pipes are located under or within buildings, considered to be part of the property and the responsibility of the property owner. Drains in buildings can range in sizes from 2″ to 6″ diameters (typically) that normally contain “Tees” or “Elbows” for wastewater directional changes. Drain blockages can form as a result of food grease buildup, soap residue buildup and dirt and debris accumulation.

    Storm Drains

    Pipes that are limited to the collections and control of rainwater. Rainwater can be collected and directly diverted to streams or rivers without passing through a water treatment plant. Storm drain blockages can form as a result of root infiltration, silt, dirt and debris accumulation. Blockages can also occur from pipe failure or collapse that will require excavation to correct.

    Our family was very fortunate, this year, to have received a recommendation to consult with Wedgeworth Plumbing about multiple plumbing repair needs in our home. We received several quotes from other plumbing companies before contacting Wedgeworth and ultimately discovered that we fared quite well in allowing Wedgeworth to complete the work we needed done. Their staff is very knowledgeable, courteous, highly skilled and focused on delivering high quality work while remaining conscientious of cost with a very fair-minded approach towards the customer.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    I used Wedgeworth Plumbing to repair the water line for my exterior watering system that had burst during the freeze. TJ Pinkerton provided the service, and I was absolutely delighted with his work. He arrives precisely as scheduled, kept me informed about what he would be doing and showed me exactly what had been done. I am so pleased with the service TJ provided. He had also previously repaired two other issues in my home, and I was equally delighted with his service. I am thrilled to find Wedgeworth Plumbing.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    We were slotted for a 3-6 pm arrival time for Shawn to look at our leaking tub faucet (leak was previously repaired by another plumber two months prior). In the midst of a torrential downpour, flooding streets, and tornado warnings, Shawn arrived early after finishing up his earlier appointment. He greeted me with a smile and a hello and immediately set to work examining our plumbing. He explained the problem and presented multiple options, with clear prices and a 25-month warranty. There was no pressure in the decision making as he left it all up to me (and a quick call to my husband for confirmation of course). He was very personable and didn't mind my multitude of questions or those of my husband regarding the job. Shawn was very open and honest regarding questions I had with other plumbing concerns and gave me some great tips and suggestions. It turned out to be longer than expected to complete the job, and a secondary access hole needed to be cut into the wall, but Shawn diligently kept working as he had promised our problem would be fixed by the end of the day. When Shawn was finished, he made sure he cleaned up his area, demonstrated the ease of use of our new plumbing hardware, and asked if we had any questions. He ran out of time to work on some other issues and reached out to his office to schedule a return time in one week. We can't wait for Shawn to return! I was very pleased with the ease with which I was able to schedule the appointment, call the office with questions regarding timeframe availability and updates, and how easily they were able to reach out to Shawn while he was on the road, both in route to our home and back from acquiring the needed parts. I would highly recommend Shawn W. as your next plumber with Wedgeworth Plumbing. He is friendly, open, responsive, caring, punctual, very knowledgeable in the industry, takes pride in his work, and has a great sense of humor.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    TJ did a great job repairing our freeze break, and your home office coordinator did a great job keeping us in the loop as far as arrival time. You guys were super busy after the freeze and we really appreciate the extra effort to get us back up and running. Thanks for that! Only one suggestion - add a field to your invoice for the tech's name. I now have five WW invoices in my file and I've added the repair person's name to four of them, but missed out doing that on the fifth, invoice #11332477 from April 2021. I like to keep track of who we've worked with from your excellent firm!
