    High-Pressure Water Jetter

    A high-pressure water jetter is the most efficient, effective and safest way to clear blocked drains. It uses a motor and pump to create a high pressure stream of water that can be used with different nozzle types to suit the size of your pipes or the type of blockage. Your drain will then be cleared and all your pipes cleaned thoroughly, which will prevent being blocked up again for a while.

    The only exception is tree roots, whereby the blockage may return later in the future and require pipe relining, which is a long-term solution. Jet blasting is one of the latest innovations and a specialised technique in the market for cleaning clogged and blocked drains, sewers, and stormwater pipes. With its long-reaching and flexible hose, the machine can move along drain elbows of several pipe sizes to get to hard-to-reach areas in piping systems.

    Jet blasting effectively clears almost every type of blocked drain, including blocked kitchen sinks, laundry sinks, blocked shower drains and clogged toilets. It's particularly effective at removing tough blockages in the main sewer and stormwater lines outside your home. Other drain cleaners such as chemicals, electric eels and plunging aren't as effective in tackling tough tree roots or mineral deposits that have built up over time.

    What Is A High Pressure Water Jetter?

    A high-pressure water jetter also known as a hydro jetter is a piece of equipment that is commonly used to unblock and clean drains. Water is fed through a high-pressure pump which propels the high-pressure water through a series of hoses. The main hose is then fed down the drain, forcing high-pressure water out of the attached cutting nozzle jets on the end of the hose.

    These nozzles vary in shapes and sizes, and they all have different benefits depending on what blockage you are trying to clear. Using a trained operator makes all the difference to determine how well the blockage is cleared and only a fully licensed and qualified plumber can use a hydro jet

    Jet blasting Sydney has become the norm for every plumber attempting to clear a blocked drain. Our jet blasting machine is capable of water pressures up to 5,300psi. Connecting to a standard garden tap, our custom hydro jetting machines can reach over 100m and come with a variety of nozzles for use in 40mm to 225mm pipes.

    The hose comes with various fittings designed to cut through the toughest blockages caused by tree roots, wet wipes, grease, and more. The jetter blasts through obstructions as it propels itself along the length of a drain, flushing out the entire pipe. Not only will the blocked drain be cleared, but the total diameter of the line will also be cleaned, improving the longevity of your pipes and saving you money in the long run.

    Unlike an Electric Eel which depends on the machine that powers it for its energy, Jet Blasters get all their energy from the nozzle at the end of the hose. This means that when combined with the use of a root cutting turbine, a drain cleaned by a high-pressure Jet Blaster is left 30% cleaner than one cleaned using an Electric Eel.

    Is It Better To Use An Electric Eel Or A High Pressure Water Jetter?

    When it comes to a blocked drain in Sydney, we invest in the best equipment on the market worldwide. The high-pressure water jet is the latest technology in drain cleaning equipment. The water jet has replaced the electric eel when it comes to drain cleaning due to speed, cost-effectiveness, and quality of root removal from the drain.

    Unlike an Electric Eel, which depends on the machine that powers it for its energy, Jet Blasters get all their energy from the nozzle at the end of the hose. This means that when combined with a root cutting turbine, a drain cleaned by a high-pressure Jet Blaster is left 30% cleaner than one cleaned using an Electric Eel.

    Electric Eels have become a thing of the past as they cannot clear a drain as efficiently and effectively as a water jetter. The Electric Eel is a mechanical machine that feeds a series of metal cables down the line with sharp cutting heads attached. Once feed down the pipe, these cutting heads are only helpful to cut out tree roots as they cannot break up grease or debris efficiently. When the Electric Eel is used to cut through tree roots or debris, the cutting head only pulls out what is attached to it, and the rest is left in the drain to potentially cause another blockage further down the line.
