What do plumbers use to unclog drains?
Whilst a plumber can clear drains, replace a faucet and complete plumbing installations, the plumber is like a general practitioner for plumbing pipes.
When it comes to blockages in pipes, a drain cleaning specialist is a smarter choice.
The reason is, that the standard plumbing tools used to unblock a drain, are either drain rods or a kinetic gun. These tools often cause damage to the pipes because the are forced into the pipe work and exert excessive pressure on the pipes fittings. This can cause the joins in the pipe to separate and leak.
Besides this, these tools only puncture the blockage in comparison to a specialized high pressure drain cleaning machine which uses water pressure to cut through a blockage in the same way as a water jet cuts through hard materials.
The only difference is that the water flow rate and the pressure of these machines is set specifically to cut through blockages, whilst not powerful enough to cut through the pipework.
Not only does this ensure that the entire blockage is removed , but at the same time, these machines have the capacity to dissolve fat deposits that have become hard inside the pipework.
High pressure drain cleaning equipment has the capacity to heat the water used in the process. This difference in temperature melts the fat back into a liquid state and then flushes the liquid out of the pipe into the main municipal sewer.
