Whether you have a new construction home or a vintage beauty, it’s likely that you’ll come across plumbing issues at one point or another. For old properties especially, it’s important to maintain your plumbing system to avoid costly repairs later. In many cases, years of blockages can cause plumbing backups and breakages, some of which are not obvious if you don’t know what to look for. Though they may not immediately disrupt your daily life, plumbing issues should always be dealt with as soon as possible.
If the damage gets too bad, your mainline could have to be replaced, a process that costs your front yard and thousands of dollars. Oftentimes, hydro jetting is enough to clear any blockages and prevent breakages, but the frequency with which you need to have this service performed varies.
How a Hydro Jet Can Help
Here are some signs that your home may benefit from a hydro jet service.
- You frequently have clogs. If you have had to unclog a singular drain more than twice it’s probably a bigger issue than just the drain. Fixing the individual area may help for a while, but if the problem continues to return, it’s likely your mainline that’s to blame. Hydro Jetting will be able to clear the mainline so all associated pipes can drain effectively.
- Bad smells. There is no situation in which your drain is supposed to smell foul. If you notice an odor coming from the sink, shower, or basement floor drains, there is something stuck that is rotting. It’s time to get a professional.
- Your pipes or drains make noise. If you hear significant clanging of the pipes on a regular basis, or if your drain makes gurgling sounds, it’s a sign that a blockage is slowing things down.
