Reliable Sewer Jetting Services in New Jersey

As a business owner or homeowner, it's likely only a matter of time before you have to deal with a stubborn clog in your wastewater disposal system. A plumbing snake, which is a flexible metal cable that plumbers insert into the drain, can dislodge some clogs. But what happens if the material is deep down in the system and beyond the snake's reach? Some obstructions may require additional force to break them up and facilitate the water flow. In many cases, New Jersey sewer jetting will deliver superior results to plumbing snakes for removing tough clogs deep within the piping system.

When you find yourself struggling with a pesky blockage that just won't go away no matter what you do, put down the plunger and call the experienced New Jersey plumbers at Sewer Surgeons for efficient, effective sewer jetting. NJ property owners can rely on our qualified plumbing professionals for thorough service and long-lasting results.

What is Sewer Jetting?

New Jersey sewer jetting, also known as hydro jetting or high-pressure water jetting, is the next generation in sewer line cleaning and maintenance. While a plumbing snake or auger uses mechanical action to punch a hole through clogs, blockage and debris to restore flow, pressurized drain cleaning uses the force of pressurized water to thoroughly clean the inside of your pipe.

The sewer jetting device features a pulsating nozzle that breaks up material much faster and more effectively than a plumbing snake. Jets of water delivered from the rear of the device provide additional cleaning upon the removal of the clog.

High-pressure pipe jetting not only restores flow but can remove grease buildup inside your sewer pipe and even remove tree roots to improve the flow inside your pipes. Your pipes will be cleaner than ever, and you won't have to worry about clogs for a long time to come.

How Our Expert Plumbers Handle New Jersey Sewer Jetting

Sewer Surgeons implements a time-tested three-step New Jersey sewer jetting process consisting of a preliminary inspection, jetting and a final review to verify the results:

  • Pipe Inspection: Our technicians will access the sewer pipe and perform a sewer camera inspection to identify the problems and locations of any issues. If there's a main drain blockage, they may need to do a pipe cleaning to re-establish flow so that the pipe is visible on the video camera. The inspection will also reveal whether there are any breaks, cracks or separations in the line that require more extensive trenchless sewer repair work.
  • Jet the Line: Once the line has been inspected and drainage issue areas determined, our plumber will insert a hose with a cleaning head that delivers over 4000 psi (pound-force per square inch) of pressure in the pipe. The tech can alter the amount of pressure as needed to adapt to the severity of the clog and conserve water where practical. The cleaning head is moved along the pipeline while paying close attention to problem areas. Often, several passes are made to clean away tough blockages like tree roots.
  • Follow-Up Inspection: The sewer pipe is inspected with a sewer camera to ensure that any roots or buildup have been completely removed by the New Jersey sewer jetting process and that the line is now clean and open to maximum capacity. This final inspection serves as a crucial quality control step. The technician can determine if there is any residual debris along the walls of the piping system that requires additional attention.

Hot Sewer Jetting Vs. Cold Sewer Jetting

Sewer Surgeons can perform New Jersey sewer jetting with either hot or cold pressurized water. Our commercial hot jetting method typically provides the best results for removing grease and the most challenging clogs. Cold jetting is a more efficient and cost-effective technique for eliminating "ordinary" clogs, as it does not require heating of the water.

What Causes the Problems That Require Sewer Jetting?

New Jersey sewer jetting is often the best solution for eliminating clogs that are beyond plunging or are too tough or deeply embedded for snakes, whether they're occurring in a residential or commercial plumbing system.

One of the biggest and most common problems we encounter in kitchen drainage lines is excessive grease buildup. Homeowners often carelessly let liquid fat, oil and grease go down their kitchen sink drain, where it coats the inside of the pipe and solidifies. That creates a sticky trap that grabs onto food scraps and other items that follow it down the drain, creating some of the toughest blockages. Sewer jetting is really effective at removing grease buildup, especially when heated, pressurized water jets are used.

New Jersey sewer jetting also works well for industrial facilities that dump grease into drains, as well as for removing other stubborn materials that require additional force. Restaurants can use sewer jetting services to get rid of cooking grease and food particles that accumulate within pipes over time.

Scale, which consists of dissolved calcium and magnesium salts that produce "hard" water, also responds well to jetting. Water hardness varies according to the specific location in New Jersey, with some towns and cities having only moderately hard water and other places having extremely hard water. Hard water is potable and safe to use for bathing and cleaning purposes, but it can be really hard on the interior of your plumbing pipes.

What Are the Benefits of New Jersey Sewer Jetting?

For many reasons, New Jersey sewer jetting is the optimal method for unclogging and cleaning sewer lines:

  • Sewer Jetting is a Cost-Effective Option: Jetting can clean the pipe, improve the flow rate and lengthen the time until the next maintenance, which can be five times longer than just snaking the line. When comparing the price difference, jetting not only cleans the line better but will cost less over time.
  • Sewer Jetting Cleans What Snakes Can’t: Jetting can remove grease buildup, tree roots, scale and other causes of slow sewer lines that snakes can’t touch. While not a permanent solution, jetting is a superior maintenance choice when compared to snaking, as it goes way beyond punching a hole through the blockage to clean the inside of your sewer pipe.
  • Sewer Jetting Provides Longer Lasting Results: Opening a hole through a blockage with a plumbing snake while restoring flow is a short-term drain solution. By thoroughly cleaning the inside of your pipe, jetting can not only improve the flow but will last longer than most other maintenance options.

But that's not all—the sewer jetting process can provide numerous other benefits as well, especially when compared to snaking and other less reliable methods.
Other advantages of choosing New Jersey sewer jetting services for your home or business include:

  • Sanitary solution that minimizes the risk of material and debris escaping into the surrounding work areas
  • More environmentally friendly — no worries about harsh or toxic chemicals reaching rivers, lakes, streams or reservoirs
  • Versatile process that works well for everything from removing small clogs to dislodging tree roots
  • A cutting-edge technique that’s faster than attempting to remove clogs with snakes or other traditional pipe-clearing methods

What Are the Signs That My Plumbing Needs New Jersey Sewer Jetting?

Not sure if you need New Jersey sewer jetting? NJ homeowners and business owners aren't always certain which signs and symptoms indicate that it's time to call their local plumber. Perhaps you haven't noticed any obvious problems with your drainage system, but it has been more than two or three years since your last appointment with a professional drain cleaning service. In that case, it’s the right time to get the job done before an unpleasant issue appears to ruin your day. Substances such as soap scum, mineral deposits, soap scum, grease and hair can cling to the interior walls of your pipes and cause major blockages or even sewer backups.
Here are some common signs of clogs that our drain cleaning experts can eliminate with New Jersey sewer jetting services:

  • Foul smells coming from drains that smell like rotten food scraps in the kitchen or sewage odors in the bathroom
  • Daily toilet clogs or a flat drain that clogs often for no clear reason
  • Strange noises from drains like gurgling, sucking, grinding or thumping
  • Fixtures react in odd ways, like a toilet bubbling when you turn on the bathroom sink faucet, or slow drains in the shower drain
  • Gnats or sink flies hovering around drains, especially in the kitchen

These types of warning signs indicate that it's time to call your local New Jersey sewer jetting experts for help before the problem worsens and causes major trouble for your household.

How Often Does Sewer Jetting Need to Be Done?

Most people only consider calling a plumber for New Jersey sewer jetting when there's something wrong, such as a clogged drain, that needs immediate attention. But you can save yourself hassle, time and money by investing in preventative maintenance for your plumbing system to remove potential problems before they have a chance to cause a disruption for your household.

New Jersey sewer jetting is an excellent preventive measure that will not only allow you to avoid the stress of dealing with tough clogs but also go a long way toward keeping your pipes in great shape and preventing excessive wear and tear damage that could cause you to need early sewer line replacement. But how often should you schedule preventive New Jersey sewer jetting services? The answer is going to vary somewhat based on what you put down your drains and how often you use your drainage system.

Does New Jersey Sewer Jetting Waste Water?

At Sewer Surgeons, our skilled plumbers make conserving water a high priority—a critical factor in today's environmentally conscious world. Unlike most of our competitors who use low pressure and high water volumes when delivering New Jersey sewer jetting, NJ technicians on our team take the opposite approach. We combine high pressure of up to 4000 psi (pound-force per square inch) with a low volume of about 10 gpm (gallons per minute) while still getting exceptional results. Less efficient pipe jetting companies apply only around 3000 psi at a flow rate of 26-60 gpm or even higher—that's a needless waste of precious water.

Is Sewer Jetting Better Than Liquid Drain Cleaners?

Most New Jersey plumbers don't recommend using acid-based drain cleaners at all, or at least limiting them to very occasional use. If they are used too much, the acid cleaners can actually wear away your pipes from the inside, leading to pinhole leaks and other major problems that will cause your pipes to need replacement long before they otherwise would. Toxic liquid drain cleaners can also leach into soil and groundwater, causing environmental destruction in our local area. That's why we believe the best liquid drain cleaner by far is just plain water—as long as it's pressurized like it is with New Jersey sewer jetting services. Hydro jetting is not only much gentler on your system and will help to preserve your pipes rather than breaking them down, but it's also kinder to the environment because it doesn't have the corrosive qualities of chemical and acid-based cleaners.
