When you’re going around your home cleaning up before guests arrive, you probably are not breaking out the equipment to clean your drains and sewer line. At least we hope not. Because that would be unusual, to say the least. Even so, it is important that you keep your drain and sewer lines clean. And no, pouring chemical cleaners down them is not an effective way to do it. In fact, there are many drawbacks to using those cleaners.
So what do we recommend? Scour jetting in Tucson, AZ. Why? How does that work? Don’t worry—all shall be revealed in today’s post. Our Sunny Plumbers are some of the finest in the business, and we provide them with the tools and equipment that they need to match their skills to any job that your plumbing system may require. When you schedule scour jetting with us, you can count on getting the best performance possible from those pipes!
How Does Scour Jetting Work?
With water. Really, that’s it! Okay, more specifically, we’re talking about highly pressurized water. In fact, it’s not all that different in concept than the pressure washers that you might use to clean the years of grime off of your driveway or steps. That does not mean that you can use a power washer for this particular application, of course.
Basically, we use a hose to blast the interior surfaces of your pipes with pressurized water. Not just that, but we use a hose topped with an omnidirectional head to ensure the comprehensive cleaning of your pipes. Everything that we blast off of those surfaces is then sent back through and out of the pipes, leaving the interiors clean.
Why Choose This Method?
Because scour jetting your pipes uses only water, it’s a very environmentally friendly way in which to clean your pipes. Because of the omnidirectional spray of water, it is also a very effective means. When you pour harsh chemicals down drains, you’re really only likely to clear out enough of a blockage or buildup to allow that cleaner to pass through. And not only that, but you’ll find yourself doing so again and again as clogs build back up rapidly.
When to Schedule Service
Well, when things back up, obviously. No, actually.
You don’t want to wait until your drains stop draining or your toilet backs up before scheduling this service. It’s best used as a preventative measure or at the first sign of trouble. If your drains are slow and gurgling, you’re plunging your toilet frequently, or your fixtures are smelly, chances are that your system is a great candidate for scour jetting. Contact a member of our team with any questions that you may have regarding this beneficial service. We don’t sell customers services that they don’t need, so you can trust us to assess the situation honestly and make a great recommendation.
