This water flushes the debris from your system using our specially designed cleaning heads attached to flexible high-pressure hoses. Also we are able to break down minor amounts of root build up in your sewer main, with our newest attachment called “The Root Ranger”.
The High Velocity Water Jet equipment can be operated at any pressure up to 3000 psi (pounds per square inch). This flexibility allows our technicians to select the appropriate pressure to get the job done properly.

Video Inspection

Video camera machines have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing industry. Specialty made fibre optic cameras allow for a visual inspection of underground sewer lines, drain tile, and wide variety of other applications, allowing High Mark technicians to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. A flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on its end is inserted into the pipe for inspection. Video images are transmitted to the camera operator and can be saved onto a videotape for a permanent record. Radio transmitters on the camera head can be picked up with our new line locating machine, so that we can determine, the depth and location of the problem from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected the High Mark way “cost effectively”.
