A clogged drain can happen any time, but inevitably occurs around the holidays when a household full of guests can overtax sinks and toilets. Clogged drains are an inevitable problem for every homeowner at some point. Materials get stuck in toilets and sink drains build up over time, result in slow drains or overflows. However, don’t wait to take action if there is a slow drain as it inevitably will only get worse.
Olympic Plumbing Technology uses various methods of environmentally friendly products and advanced technologies to address clogs. What sets their services apart from other local plumbing companies in unclogging drains is the use of a hydro-jet.
Hydro jetting consists of a high-pressure hose with a specialized nozzle connected to a machine pressurizing the water, producing a powerful stream to clear the drain. Water is forced down the drain where it pushes grease, mineral build up, hair and other debris through the drain.
Ron Boeckmann, co-owner of Olympic Plumbing Technology explains there are many reasons and situations where a customer could benefit from hydro jetting, especially in the Pacific Northwest. “The trees of the Pacific Northwest are both beautiful and troublesome. They love to send roots into your sewer line and ruin your day. Hydro jetting is the most effective method to removing roots from a sewer line. Our hydro jet uses approximately 4,000 psi to actually cut through the roots. After most root removals there are no signs of where the roots were in the first place.”
“When used properly, the hydro jet is safe for your existing plumbing including old concrete lines,” he continues. “Also, there is not a better method for removing grease build up from drains. Our hydro jet can clean drains from 1.5 to 18 inches. This makes hydro jetting ideal for restaurant maintenance.”
