When you contact the hydro jetting experts at Full Bore, we will immediately schedule a visit from one or our professional technicians. Every member of our experienced crew is capable of handling just about any sewer or water pipe issue, but it’s important that we ascertain the problem and then develop a cost-effective solution to solve it. This is how the hydro jetting process usually unfolds:
Pipe Inspection – We use state-of-the-art video technology to figure out what’s causing your plumbing problem. A camera is inserted into the pipe and a real-time video shows our technician exactly what’s causing the problem. This is a non-invasive way to develop a solution to your problem, and ascertain whether hydro jetting will mitigate the issue.
Sometimes the cameras reaches an obstruction that completely blocks the pipe. In these situations we may use a plumbing snake to punch a hole in the debris to more thoroughly inspect the rest of the pipe.
Hydro jetting the line – The first order of business is to clear the pipe of any and all obstructions. Even if we already know that the pipe is compromised and will require a cured-in-pipe replacement, we still need to eliminate all roots, material buildups, and other obstructions.
Our rotating pressure washers deliver a stream of water at somewhere between 8,000 psi and 60,000 psi, thoroughly cleaning the pipe’s interior surface. Our hydro jetting technicians will pay special attention to areas that are causing the biggest problems. It may take a few insertions to completely clean out the line, but our Seattle hydro jetting professionals will keep you up-to-date on progress.
Follow-up inspection – Your hydro jetting tech will conduct another inspection using the camera to ensure that every obstruction has been removed. They will also check once again to see if the pipe’s integrity has been compromised. Even the tiniest of holes or cracks are an invitation to invasive roots, dirt, and other forms of debris, so if they exist the problem must be addressed.
Our hydro jetting technicians will show you on the video exactly what the problem is, so that you have total confidence that you’re being treated honestly. If the pipe is secure, then the job is done. However, if we find cracks or holes, then we will likely suggest a cured-in-place pipe replacement, which is an affordable and non-invasive way to resolve the issue. Best of all, your new pipe has an average lifespan of 50 years, so you won’t have to deal with another serious pipe issue for many years.
