Blocked Sewer Clearance with Water Jetting Machines

///Blocked Sewer Clearance with Water Jetting Machines

A blocked sewer is not a pretty sight (and smell). Aside from the nasty smell, a blocked sewer fiasco is a nuisance in your household. Your family’s health is at risk if the onset of a blocked sewer situation is not treated.

There are a lot of reasons as to why your sewer could be blocked. Understanding the root of why your sewer is blocked in the first place helps a lot during the de-clogging process. For example, if it is just a simple build-up of goo, a chemical drain cleaning product might do. However, if it is something more terrible than scum, you might need some specialized tools or machines. Before anything else, let’s discuss first the possible reasons of blocked sewer:

Blocked Sewer from Human Hair:

Hair. Innocent as the word sounds, hair, when accumulated and not taken out for a year, can cause a blocked sewer.
Hair falls out of the body every time anybody takes a shower or does something in the sink. Let’s say you are a family of five, all living in the same house. When falling hair strands constantly go down the drain for a year, it can accumulate down the pipe in a one-year worth of hair volume. That is enough to create a blocked sewer.

Blocked Sewer from Dirt and Plants:

Pipes and drains are usually hidden beneath the ground, but there can be exposed pipes too. Exposed pipes are susceptible to plant and dirt debris build-up. That is why, during fall or spring, always try to clean up your front and backyard thoroughly.
It is also advisable to not plant trees near the drains as their growing roots can reach these drains and break them.

Food and Oil Debris Build-Up:

Remember when your mom would always say that you shouldn’t dispose of your cooking oil or your food down the sink? Food and cooking oil can contribute to the development of a blocked sewer. Fat from oil and food can build up on the edges and walls of the sewer.

Blocked Sewer Due to Toiletries:

Blocked Sewer Due to Toiletries
I could never understand why some people like to dispose of their nappies, tissues, and napkins to toilets. First, it’s an irresponsible act, and second, it’s just downright disgusting.
Oftentimes, disposed toiletries are the main reason why toilets are clogged. If this act is not condoned immediately and no treatment whatsoever is applied, it can lead to a more terrible problem like a blocked sewer.

Water Jetting Machines

The Water Jetting Machine is a new machine to check out if you are looking for something high-tech to resolve your blocked sewer problem. Water Jetting Machines are also called Hydro Jet Cleaning Machines.

The main feature of a water jetting machine is its powerful water blasting effect. The water blasting effect is used to unclog drains, pipes, and sewers from any debris. The machine is so potent for blasting off debris that you can only use it one session per problem.

In water jetting machines, the key features to look for are “pressure and flow.” Both pressure and flow should be evenly powerful. Why? If you wanted to receive the optimum results, check both features.

Water Jetting Machines

A high-pressure water blast in a water jetting machine can easily eliminate hardened build-ups. On the other hand, longer flows can easily remove softer debris and have a little chance of damaging your sewer pipes. What’s great about water jetting machines is that you can easily adjust the pressure and flow combination according to your sewer’s problem.

So how powerful are water jetting machines? With the right pressure, a water jetting machine can get rid of chemical, rubber, rust, paint, fat, solid non-biodegradable build-up all in one blast. The water can also reach narrower pipes.

Another great thing about water jetting machines is its tendency not to corrode any material. Unlike other chemical draining products, they can corrode and damage the surfaces of sewers and pipes. When the surface materials are corroded, it can break the whole pipe.

Water jetting machines don’t harm the environment, unlike some chemically produced draining products.

Why and When Do You Need It?

A water jetting machine is a necessary machine for each household. Seriously, it is most unlikely that you’ll not encounter blocked sewer problems even once your lifetime. So, try to search for a dependable water jetting machine product now. If you need further reasons as to why you should buy one, have a read through the following points:

  1. Water jetting machines do not only unclog pipes, but they also provide a cleaner sewer for your household: Water jetting machines’ main purpose is to prevent the possible development of diseases. A blocked sewer is an attractive environment for viruses and bacteria.
  2. Water jetting machine has absolute power in unclogging debris: A water jetting machine is a good investment. If you are looking forward to a one-time or long-time unclogging treatment for your sewer, this machine is for you.
  3. Water jetting machine is not expensive compared to unclogging services: Using a water jetting machine is a one-time deal. For emergency purposes, you can reuse your water jetting machine. Unclogging services is not a one-time deal. There is a high chance of calling the same service again and again. One service can cost a lot, imagine paying them multiple times for the same service.
  4. Water jetting machines do not harm the environment: Water jetting machines spew water only. Unlike corrosive substances that can harm the environment, water jetting machines don’t. Plus, water can’t damage water pipes and sewers.

To answer the question of “when do you need to buy one,” you need it now. You don’t know when will your “blocked sewer problem” arise.

Final Thought

Buying a house has a lot of responsibilities. You just don’t own it, and you got to keep tabs on the different aspects of the house (for example, the sewer).

Keeping a healthy and clean sewer is a must to prevent diseases and illnesses from developing. Water jetting machines can help you in that section.

Like many others I just cannot recommend Matt and M.R.Drains more highly. Recently we had a very elusive problem with water ingress in the basement flat of our building on the New Kings Road, Fulham. Over a period of a month several so called drainage experts came to take a look. In short none of them had a clue despite charging vast amounts of money for camera surveys etc and giving eye watering estimates. It was our good fortune to stumble across Matt. First of all he arrived when he said he would and secondly had identified the problem in under half an hour. The cost of the video survey was peanuts in comparison to others and his equipment state of the art. By that evening he had emailed us the video, a report and a quote to send to our insurers. It was more than reasonable. Matt came several days later, again exactly when he said he would, and within a couple of days had repaired and lined the damaged pipes etc I felt completely comfortable leaving him with the keys of our property. We now have no water ingress and fully operational drains with a ten year warranty. Matt was very user friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I will definitely be recommending him to others.read more

Unbeatable on price, speed and efficiency. A total breeze organising and completing the job with Matt. Very reasonably priced and we were even charged £5 less than quoted, which rarely happens. Honest.read more

I cannot recommend this company highly enough. We contacted MR Drains Ltd and spoke with a their reception team who advised the person we needed to speak to was on the other line, but he'd call back within 5 minutes, which he did. We got a call back within minutes from Matt, who arranged to visit the property on the same day within 3 hours of receiving our call. He worked with our plumbers on site to investigate the drainage and track it with a camera. He went above and beyond in staying around to help the plumbers locate and lift other manholes. An absolutely lovely guy, who clearly knows his stuff. Fast, polite, super efficient. If only all companies were like this! Thanks again Matt. From a very happy customer!read more

Excellent service received from Matt and Harry. I had an urgent, serious drain and rodent issue at a residential property. I received an immediate response to my initial enquiry, and the work started within the week. They identified the issues, and were solution orientated, rectifying all of the problems. They were reliable, on time and tidy. They were not the cheapest quote, but the work and materials were of high quality, and you generally get what you pay for. A 10 year guarantee was also provided. I would definitely recommend them.read more
