Signs Your Commercial Pipes May Need To Be Hydrojetted

by April Rivera

Hydrojetting is a technique that involves using pressurized water to spray the pipes within a building. This helps to remove debris and clogs that may be trapped within the pipes. This is perfect for commercial plumbing, as the pipes are often long and travel throughout the building. Reaching debris with a plumbing snake is not always efficient in commercial buildings. If you own a commercial building, you may be wondering what the signs are that your commercial pipes need to be hydrojetted. Here are some of those signs. 

Water is Slowly Draining From Your Drains

One of the signs that your commercial pipes may benefit from hydrojetting is that water is slowly draining from your drains. When you run water in the sink or flush toilets, you expect the water to go down the drain almost instantaneously. However, if a clog is present or forming further down the drain line, water may be slow to drain. If this is the case, you will want to remove the clog or impediment from the line. Hydrojetting is an effective way to do this.

Clogs Continuously Happen

Another sign that your commercial pipes may need hydrojetting is clogs that continuously form. If your tenants are constantly complaining that they are encountering clogs, or calling maintenance due to clogs, you may need your sewer lines cleaned. Using snakes, plungers, or drain cleaners may remove enough of a clog for the water to begin to flow again, but the clog comes right back, as it is not completely removed. Hydrojetting completely removes a clog, as well as soap and grease residue that can make food particles and hair stick to a pipe. 

It Has Been Recommended to You As Part of a Maintenance Plan

The final reason why your commercial pipes may need to be hydrojetted is because it has been recommended to you as part of a plumbing maintenance plan. Many commercial plumbing companies recommend that you have your commercial pipes cleaned routinely to help prevent clogs from forming in the first place, and to help extend the life of your pipes. If it has been recommended to you, follow the guidelines for the frequency in which you should have hydrojetting done on your pipes to prevent problems. 

If your commercial plumbing system is showing signs that there may be a clog present, or if you are looking to prevent a clog from forming, hydrojetting may be the perfect solution.
