Why is jetting your drain so overlooked?

There are many misconceptions when it comes to unclogging your drains and pipes. One of these common misconceptions is that a drain cable is a sufficient method to clear your drain. This is a dated method that has no place in the 21st century.

Drain lines are like arteries: they clog from the outside in. A drain cable cannot flush out heavy build up, as they will only get things flowing and leave the rest of the build ups behind, causing further damage to your drainage systems. Your drain problem will appear fixed, but cabling is an easy way to trick you into paying unreasonable prices once there is an inevitable callback to properly fix your drains. Drain cabling can also cause serious damages to your sewer line if not done correctly. It is best to take matters into your own hands and hire All Things Sewer Drain care (860-857-1277) for effective and modern jetting services.

  1. Drain cleaning agents aren't always the solution

Contrary to popular belief, a drain cleaner might not always work wonders when it comes to clearing up pipe debris. The truth is that if a drain cleaning agent is too harsh, it might actually hurt the clogged pipes and result in damaging them even further. Many drain cleaners will use an acoustic based acid that will eat your pipe and fittings.

Chemicals from these cleaning agents are also harmful to the environment and can cause harm to your health when used excessively. They might make things easier for you with regards to quick fixes, however they are simply a bandaid when it comes to stubborn clogged pipes. Another misconception that people have with these cleaners is that water starts flowing smoothly through the pipes after use.

  1. A plumber does not do the same job as a drain cleaner

This is another misconception that people have when they need help with their clogged drains. Drain unclogging is a speciality when it comes to plumbing, not general knowledge. It's always best to get in touch with someone who is trained in cleaning and pipe high pressure water jetting drains.
