Do You Need To Flush Out Sewer Clogs & Buildup?

Trinity Subsurface began offering the service of hydro jetting after observing several video pipe inspections with the same problem. Our technicians often saw pipes with flow issues, negatively impacting the storm and sanitary pipe systems of municipalities. The underground infrastructure of towns and residential areas is deteriorating. With the changing of seasons, natural debris clogs like leaves, sticks, and earth erosion cause pipe buildup in storm systems. Whereas in sanitary you will see blockages mainly due to roots and grease/debris buildup.  

During video pipe inspection, Trinity Subsurface technicians examine the pipe condition. If in poor condition, the techs determine what measures will need to be taken to restore pipe flow. In most cases, hydro jetting or heavy cleaning will accomplish this. In other cases, including structural damages, sectional point repairs can be used. Sectional point repairs are a great alternative to expensive pipe replacements.

Hydro jetting includes the operation of a high pressure water hose to remove any grease, tree roots, sediment from sewer and sanitary pipes. The process of high velocity jetting involves the turbulent action of water pumped through a uniquely designed nozzle. Our jetting truck pressures up to 2500 psi, water blasts through the pipeline rapidly. The device is propelled down the pipe, ridding the sewer of blockages more quickly than any other methods. Any material clogging the line is broken apart by the forward and reversing spray and pulled through the pipe, back downstream. All foreign material is removed from the system.

Jetting is utilized when you want to clear any obstructions from the pipes. The goal is to return storm and sewage pipes to its original flow. Trinity Subsurface technicians clear dirt, sediment, debris from storm drains and clear roots, sewage, and grease clogs from sewer pipes. This optimizes the pipes for emergency or inclement weather. Trinity Subsurface recommends a video pipe inspection to document the pipes after the completion of every jetting procedure.

If you do not conduct regular maintenance on your storm and sewer systems through hydro jetting blockages and backups will occur. If damages to the pipe are not televised then jetted, the pipe can eventually collapse. If the pipe breaks completely, then you will need to replace the entire pipe. This is much more expensive than repairing the pipe through hydro jetting.
