It is a process of cleaning pipework free of oil, fats and debris. The system is similar to a domestic pressure washer but on an industrial scale. All of our vehicles are equipped with “state of the art” high pressure water jetting systems. Within the system there are long hoses attached to water tanks within our vehicles. At the end of the hose there is a nozzle, this is where the water is forced out via the engine at 3000psi. The hoses will be fed into the problematic drain and with the skill, technique and patience of our qualified engineers the blockages can be removed.
It can be carried out at domestic and commercial premises, but it is used widely in other industries.
When carried out by a qualified engineer drain jetting is safe to you and the environment. There are strict guidelines which must be followed. The most important thing to remember is if these jetting systems can cut through concrete and tree roots within drainage systems, imagine the devastating damage it could do to a human body. Always stay behind the safety barriers and never approach an engineer when carrying their works.
Using water alone, it is the most economical way of clearing your drainage system. No chemicals are used when carrying out these works.
Here at Techflow Drainage we have a portfolio of commercial clients and domestic customers that use our services time and time again.
