How Hydro Jetting Aids the Pipe Inspection Process

Home / How Hydro Jetting Aids the Pipe Inspection Process

Not many property managers and utility owners are fully familiar with the various procedures implemented by sewer inspection and repair professionals during the course of our work. One of the first things we do here at Federal EC prior to any pipe inspection in Atlanta, GA is to hydro jet the problematic pipe. This extra step helps us give our clients better, more accurate results and findings. The exception to this may be when a client may want to see their pipe operating in the existing condition to see if any operational problems exist.

Federal EC believes in educating our established and prospective clients on the services that we provide, and we offer the following facts on the benefits of hydro jetting in conjunction with our sewer and drain inspection services.

General Pipeline Cleaning

Conducting a sewer camera inspection is more challenging or sometimes even impossible if the pipeline is blocked by a considerable amount of sludge. Hydro jetting prior to the inspection scours away debris and buildups that could block the camera from getting a clear view of the entire interior of the pipeline system. When the pipes are clear, our team is better able to differentiate between simple pipeline obstructions and the actual pipe damage.

Tree Root Removal

Tree roots that have entered a pipeline through a crack or separation are a strong indication that the pipe has already sustained damage. The presence of tough, tangled roots can prevent our camera from getting a full view of the problem and keep our sewer scoping attempt from diagnosing the exact extent of the damage.

Performing hydro jetting before sewer scoping can sometimes remove roots and the material that they’ve trapped so that we can determine their point of entry prior to making repairs and whether the municipality needs the pipes to be reinforced. Federal EC also has mechanical cleaning devices to complete heavy root removal where hydrojetting may not be enough to remove the roots.

Our Pipe Inspection Services

Whenever possible, our personnel always hydro jet the pipe as the first step of our overall pipe camera inspection process. We then send a specially designed camera through the line. This step is followed up by going over the results of our findings in detail with the facility manager.
