‘Drain Jetting’ is a process that utilises high-pressure water jetting equipment in order to clear blockages in drains and sewers. This involves inserting a jetting hose into the drain pipes to break down larger and more stubborn blockages with pressurised water. This process requires a powerful pump that can force enough water through at high pressures.

Many of our clients often ask if drain jetting is something that they can carry out themselves. While it is possible to clear it out yourself if you have the right equipment, it’s also a very expensive investment as you may only use it once a year or when there might be a blockage. In addition, even if you do invest in the right equipment, you will also need the right expertise and experience in order to maximise the potential of the drain jetting equipment and to carry out the process safely.

Drain 247 have been providing professional drain jetting services for commercial, domestic, and industrial properties for many years. We know how important it is to make sure that drain jetting is carried out safely, effectively, and thoroughly. As specialists within the field, our team at Drain 247 can offer you expert drain jetting services, making use of the latest technology available within the sector to resolve all of your blocked drain issues.

How Does It Work?

Serving as a key part of drainage maintenance, drain jetting is the process of using a high-pressure water jet to forcibly remove any of the nasty substances that may have decided to stick to a section of your drainage system. These substances are usually dirt, grease, fat, or limescale, and when left alone for long periods, they can harden and fuse with the material around your drains. This then becomes very difficult to remove without the use of drain jetting technology.

Compared to traditional methods of unblocking drains, drain jetting is a revolutionary way of cleaning out debris in a safer, more controlled, and much quicker approach. That’s why Drain 247 invests in the latest jetting technology to ensure that our engineers are equipped with the best tools to achieve the best results for our clients.

Our drain jetting services are highly effective at removing even the largest of blockages because of their incredibly high water pressure. These powerful jetting tools go as far as breaking down the blockages themselves which allow them to be utilised for all types of serious blockages. At Drain 247, our drain jetting services can be used to clean pipes that are as small as 100mm or as large as 1200m, making them the perfect choice for domestic, commercial and industrial drainage systems.  

When Might I Need It?

At some point during their lifetime, almost all drainage systems will require drain jetting. Based on the frequency and intensity of their usage, some systems may require drain jetting more often, while others may only need it to clear a blockage. There are several factors that indicate that you may need drain jetting;

• Your drain smells and the scent doesn’t seem to be going away
• You can see/hear a blockage in the pipes
• You have a limited flow of water
• You haven’t carried out drain jetting in a while (if ever)

While you may be tempted to try and resolve the blockage yourself, it’s important to be aware that it’s recommended to have a professional for the job since there are many dangers associated with drain jetting. Drain 247’s engineers are fully trained and qualified to carry out drain jetting services and we are fully aware of all of the risks, that’s why we would always recommend calling an expert for these problems.

Safety Note

Drain jetting should never be undertaken without the correct training. All our engineers have all been properly trained by the Water Jetting Association (WJA) and hold valid WJA operative cards. When utilising drain jetting, they always wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE) as advised to ensure safety.
