There are some things that could go wrong in or around your home that you can't always have full control over. This certainly applies to what goes on in underground pipes. This is why one of our specializations at General Plumbing & Rooter is hydro jetting in Alameda County, CA. Below, we discuss how often this powerful cleaning process should be done.
As Soon as You Notice Drain/Sewer Issues
If you have not yet had pipe jetting done, it is something to consider if you are already noticing drain or sewer issues. Warning signs suggesting it is time to call us and see if hydro jetting is the right cleaning method for your situation include:
- Unusually slow drains
- Strong drain/sewer odors
- Recurring clogs
Once a Year for Preventative Purposes
As a good preventive measure, it's best to have your sewer lines cleaned with hydro jetting services at least every 18 to 22 months. This amounts to about once a year or so. As the entire process also includes a visual inspection of your sewer lines, any potential structural issues can be identified and corrected.
More Often Under Certain Conditions
A good jetting of your pipes may be something you'll need to be done more often under certain conditions. For instance, if you have mature trees on your property fairly close to older underground pipes, hydro jetting roots may need to be done more frequently. Older pipes can also be more susceptible to accumulated sediment and debris, which is another reason to consider scheduling regular cleanings.
