Preventative Drain Maintenance: How You Can Increase the Lifespan of Your Pipes

You use your plumbing just about every day. It’s such a staple of modern life that we often don’t give it a second thought. However, it’s important to realize that these things aren’t guaranteed to last. We have to monitor and maintain our home systems so they can stick around for a long time. One of the best ways you can do that is through drain maintenance. We’ll explain how it works and the benefits of it in this blog. Let’s get started!

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is one of the coolest tools we use today as plumbers. The idea is simple. We take an extremely powerful high-pressure water hose and clear out your drains. We are talking about pressure many times greater than the typical pressure water used to clean graffiti and things like that. It’s so powerful that it completely cut through years of mineral deposits and buildup that make your drains more susceptible to clogs in the first place.

That is the main reason why hydro jetting is so great as a preventative measure. Pipes are more likely to clog over time. It’s the nature of hardwater, which is prevalent across the entire country. Unfortunately, it doesn’t just affect the clarity of your water and dry out your skin and hair. It leaves mineral deposits that will continue to increase and essentially shrink the space for other things to go down the drain. Suddenly, that piece of lettuce that’s going down the garbage disposal doesn’t have the same space to fit through and causes a clog. A hydro jetting will clean out your drains so well that their quality will be like brand-new!
