The plumbing system that you use in your home each and every day, throughout the day, and for so many different purposes, has a few components that you directly interact with regularly. Your toilet, your sinks, and appliances like your laundry machine and dishwasher. That being said, there are parts of your plumbing system that you don’t really see and that you don’t often think about—such as the pipes connected to the bottom of your drains or, for that matter, your sewer line.
Now, the fact that these components of your plumbing system are out of sight doesn’t mean that they should be entirely out of mind. In fact, you find pretty fast that compromised drain and sewer lines will pretty much render your plumbing system unusable. That is why you should hire a professional plumber in Vail, AZ to service them as needed. One great service offered by The Sunny Plumber Tucson is scour jet service, and it can really help your drains and sewer out of a jam!
What Kinds of Problems Are We Talking About?
Clogs, mostly, but the fact of the matter is that clogs are a lot more serious than many homeowners may realize. Sure, we’ve all had a clog in the tub drain or the toilet that we were either able to extract or resolve with a plunger. However, not every clog is going to be so shallow in a system that these are viable options, nor will every clog be caused by materials that are so easy to get moving down the drain.
While clogs caused by hair, excessive amounts of toilet paper, baby wipes (NEVER FLUSH THEM NO MATTER WHAT THE PACKAGE SAYS), and other such materials are common, there are also clogs caused by things like tree roots that grow right into sewer lines in order to find water and nutrients. When that happens, you are not going to be able to pump the plunger a few times to resolve the issue.
Okay, So How Does It Work?
A scour jet system is just that: a system that uses jets of water to scour the interior surfaces of pipes. This water is highly pressurized and, in the wrong hands, can do serious damage to your drainage system. If you need scour jet services, be sure to schedule them with us so that the job is done right.
Not only can scour jetting clean the interior surfaces of your pipes while blasting the refuse down and out of the line (scouring is a lot more than just “clearing” a clog), but it can also break up tree roots to get your sewer line functioning properly once again. This is a fairly specialized service that requires expensive equipment and a lot of training, and it is one that we are very proud to offer to clients throughout the area. If you notice drains throughout your home moving slowly or frequent toilet backups, give us a call right away.
