Everything You Need To Know About High-Pressure Water Jetting for Drains


High-pressure water jetting works by blasting a stream of highly pressurised water at surfaces. Such as floors, walls or machinery. The high pressure of the stream effectively erodes and dislodges dirt, grease and other residues from a surface. This cleaning solution typically utilises a specialised pump and nozzle at pressures ranging anywhere from 1,000 to 40,000 psi (pounds per square inch). Here at Total Drain Cleaning, we utilise high-pressure water jetting as a method of drain cleaning and drain unblocking.

How does Drain Cleaning with High-Pressure Water Jetting Work?

Over the years, drains accumulate dirt and debris. Consequently leading to drain issues due to the build-up. Such as clogged drains, bad smells, gurgling noises, or water overflow. There is, however, a simple solution to either prevent or fix these issues. And that is by availing of a professional drain cleaning solution. There are many different methods of drain cleaning. However, high-pressure water jetting is by far the best. The high pressure of the water wastes no time removing all dirt and debris from a drainage system.

Furthermore, water jetting is the most time-efficient drain-cleaning solution. This solution clears blockages so fast and it only takes one technician to complete the cleaning. Thus reducing labour time and costs.
