Do Your Pipes Need A Thorough Cleaning? Mr. Rooter Plumbing Drain Jetter Will Do The Job
Just like arteries in your body, the pipes in your home can develop plaque and sludge that impedes water flow. The best way to give the pipes of your Central Florida home a thorough cleaning is with our HydroScrub® system, the best sewer and pipe jetter available to you. Grease, hair, food and waste build up and create a dense slime on the inside of your pipes. Left as is, it will collect the food, hair and waste that goes down your drain, and soon you will have a serious drain clog.
Signs You Need Your Drain Jetted
The first signs are often slow emptying tubs, showers, and sinks. Or, you may notice the dishes in your dishwasher are coming out with a gritty residue. This happens when the water doesn’t drain quickly enough, and some of the sludge backflows into your dishwasher, covering your “clean” dishes with grit. As the sludge continues to grow inside your pipes, you will find your toilet doesn’t flush as well, and may start gurgling. Dirty pipes cause clog drains that can flood your Central Florida home. Don’t wait until tomorrow to call, our team of expert plumbing professionals at Mr. Rooter today. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we never charge extra for nights and weekends.
How Our Jetting System -- HydroScrub® Works
A nozzle attached to high-pressured hose is inserted into the cleanout of your plumbing system. Propelled by 18 gallons of water per minute, the nozzle and hose move through your pipes removing the grit and sludge that naturally builds up. This is the most effective way to thoroughly clean the pipes in your home and prevent clogged drains. “Snaking” a drain is the old-world way of cleaning pipes, and it simply is not as effective as water jetting. If you believe your pipes need jetting, call us for a plumbing checkup, we are more than happy to inspect and provide you with recommendations.
Pipes In New Homes And Older Homes Need Regular Cleaning And Maintenance
Anyone that has experienced a sewage backup knows the heartache and cost associated with it. While in some cases it is because the mainline has shifted, or there is a crack in a pipe, often times it is due to pipes filled with sludge that block sewage from properly flowing out of the house. New homes and older homes can both have this hidden problem. HydroScrub® is a quick and efficient way to clean the sludge from your pipes and prevent further damage.
Preventing Sludge Build Up
While sludge will naturally build up over time, there are a few things you can do to minimize it. Discard oils, grease and fatty foods into the trashcan; never pour them down your drain. Wipe out frying pans with paper towels prior to washing by hand or in the dishwasher. Run hot water down the drain immediately after showering for 2 minutes to help remove the soapy residue, conditioner, and hair left behind.
