4,000 PSI High Pressure Water Jetting is the best method of sewer & drain cleaning available. Solid blockages are easily removed from municipal, residential, and commercial locations including restaurants, hospitals and much more. Things that can cause major drain blockages include roots, grease, soap and sludge buildup on pipe walls disintegrated and washed away. Unlike cable or electric snake drain cleaning machines, jets of high pressure water scour the entire internal diameter of a pipe for maximum cleaning effectiveness. PHOTO GALLERY

Traditional Electric Snake Machines
Traditional Electric Snake Machines are used for economical clearing of blockages on smaller sewer & drain lines. Electric snakes can clear or bore holes through blockages to restore flow but do not fully clean a sewer or drain pipe. Our High Pressure Water Jets handle over 500 foot long sewers which simply cannot be snaked.

High Pressure Jetting units are designed to fulfill the special needs of business customers. Our commercial drain jetter offers a line of high volume water jetting to meet larger diameter pipe flushing demands. Sewer jetting at 4,000 PSI will often produce a "foamed" or "whipped" grease look. The high pressure water will cut grease into small, sand-like particles that will flow downstream. Since this is a "cold" process, grease is unlikely to congeal again to pipelines.

The wastewater a business produces consists of black water (toilet waste) and greywater (shower, sink and laundry waste). The term for this waste is called Effluent. Effluent flows directly from a business into a watertight, underground septic tank. Solid waste settles into a sludge layer on the bottom and fats float to the top of the first compartment. As incoming sewage from a business such as a restaurant fills the system, clarified liquids are forced to leave the septic tank and flow out to the leach field or leach pit. Grease will congeal and clog the entire system without proper maintenance. We can jet grease from a septic drain field. It is not uncommon to find that grease from a restaurant could potentially cause a complete drain field failure.
