Hydro-Jetting Drain Cleaning
Water jet cleaning is used to break up blockages or to remove debris that has become built up on the inside of the pipe.To resolve these problems, our trained technicians use pressurized water from one of our portable Ridgid gas powered hydro-jetting machines. 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 operates 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. We are here for you!
Video cameras 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 our technicians to determine the condition of the inside of the pipe. A flexible rod with a camera on its end inserts into the pipe for inspection. Video images sent to the camera operator and are saved onto a videotape. Radio transmitters on the camera head are picked up with our new line locating machine, so that we can find the depth and location of the problem from the surface so that defects and obstructions can be corrected the Highmark way “cost effectively”.
