Picture this. Your house is a beautiful one, the envy of your neighbours. Everything on your property is properly maintained and well cared for.
Except for the drains.
Most people don’t give much of a thought to the drainage system in their houses. But you need to care for your drains the same way you look after the rest of your home.
Cleaning the drains should be a habit with every residential and commercial property owner. If you don’t do so, your drains might get blocked anytime in the future.
How do you unclog a waste pipe?
Some plumbers would want to use a plumbing snake to do the job. It’s a long, thin steel cable with a coil at its end that plumbers insert into a blocked drain to remove clogs.
Snaking is only a temporary solution to this problem. But you should eliminate the risk of clogs in the future once and for all. For that, Albury Plumbers have the most effective solution_ jet plumbing, or what’s commonly known as hydro jetting.
What does jetting mean in plumbing?
Basically, we at Albury Plumbers use hydro-flush machines of different sizes to send a blast of water into the drains. When we flush the water into the clogged drain at a high pressure, it removes the build-up and the blockages. We unblock a smelly pipe using the same method. This procedure of cleaning out pipes and drains is called hydro jetting or jet plumbing.
Before beginning the jetting process, we create an opening through which all the buildup can be removed from the pipe.

Can Hydro jetting damage pipes?
A hydro-flush machine packs a powerful force of water to clear out the pipe debris. The pressure with which the water is blasted into the pipes ranges from 35,000 PSI to a strong 60,000 PSI.
This water pressure depends on how dangerous the pipe blockages are. If the debris can be removed easily, a low pressure is used to clean the pipe by hydro jetting. But if it’s really difficult to unclog the drain or pipe with water at low pressure, a higher pressure is used in jet plumbing.
However, if your pipes are fragile or older, they might get damaged due to the powerful water pressure. That’s why Albury Plumbers use hydro jetting with great care.
Our expert team first examines the state of the pipes to determine whether they’re fragile or not. Then we use jet plumbing by tailoring the water pressure to the condition of the pipes.
For example, if the pipes are in a good or normal state, we can flush out the debris using the usual water pressure. But if they’re old, we reduce the water pressure and only then do we use hydro jetting. This prevents damage to the pipes, along with other problems.
