    Hydro-Jetting Services by Wedgeworth Plumbing in Houston

    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.

    I had a plumber come out to my property to fix what looked to be a simple leak. Upon starting the job the he realized the problem was bigger than originally anticipated but he pulled out all the stops to get the job done. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything he was doing, very easy to talk to and very easy to get along with. Made me feel comfortable with the work getting done, and he persevered through the end of the day to make sure the leak was fixed and water was getting back into my house. TJ was a excellent plumber and the service was phenomenal. I'll be telling my HOA about the service and suggesting them as the go to plumbing service for our complexread more

    My husband and I used Wedgeworth plumbing for a complete Pex installation and hot water heater installation. We were very happy when they made room for us on a Friday afternoon when our hot water heater went out. It was from that point we decided to get a quote for re-piping the house and getting rid of the galvanized pipe. The company as a whole from top to bottom did fantastic. They took the time to lay out the scope of work. Their attention to detail was awesome. I personally appreciated the clean up they did all the way down to vacuuming underneath the sinks. I’ve always felt that attention to detail would always allow the work to speak for itself. As tough as it is to find a company come out and do a great job at a fair price and stay on schedule you can’t go wrong with Sean and his staff at Wedgeworth Plumbing.Thanks,Giovannaread more

    We have been very happy with Wedgeworth. Everything they've done for us (several recent projects) has been done correctly, at a fair price, and with a smile. Unlike many contractors, they're on time and they actually communicate. T.J. is a gem. We can, without hesitation, recommend them wholeheartedly.read more

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    A sudden emergency today required that the water line to the refrigerator needed to be shut off and the line capped. Shawn made the necessary repairs and went over and above the line of duty - he was efficient, personable and very kind. Knowing that I can always rely on Wedgeworth for a job well done brings such peace of mind. Many, many thanks!

    Started out to fix an annoying drip and transitioned to a full replacement mid-job. Helped with new faucet selection and gave tips on features we would have missed. Clean, careful and cheerful. Came later to reverse hoses at our request, so as to align with nsallation day discussion.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    Always can count on Wedgeworth Plumbing. They’re highly trained. The owner is not only an excellent plumber, he also follows good business models such as sending his plumbers for update training. Peer coaching his new staff. I use them for big projects such as the replacement of my old, poorly plumed shower which required digging 15” deep through concrete & replumbing it correctly. That was 5yrs ago & it still works wonderfully. I’ve used them and recommended them several times since then. I found them through my mom’s condo management company. They only use bonded, insured, certified companies that also must carry workers comp. to be eligible to work in that building. They’re pricey but worth the peace of mind when you really want the job done correctly the first time.

    Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

    I checked with several plumbing companies on replacing a water heater and Wedgeworth Plumbing came in way ahead of the other companies. As far as service went, they were there on time and did not waste any time getting the job done. Put down material to protect my stairs and flooring. This is my second time using Wedgeworth Plumbing and both times the service and work was great.
