High Pressure Water Jetting is an advanced method of pipe cleaning that has been used in the drain industry for a long time. When water is compressed to create pressure through a pump. The high pressure wateris sent through a hose with a nozzle threaded at the far end, also called a jet head. Where the water is forced through small ports that are faced backwards. These ports force the water to propel the nozzle and hose forward. Simultaneously the ports also known as jets will scour debris backwards when the hose is dragged out of the pipe with the high pressure water pump turned on. This pipe cleaning method can be used on small 1-1/2" pipe up to 36" pipe or larger with the use of specialty pumps, skids, hose, and nozzle design. There are different size Pipe Jetting machines for just about every application. These nozzles are also used in the Cesspool & Septic Industry for High Pressure Water Jetting.
These are some High Pressure Tips:
The hose diameter, hose composition, nozzles jet sizes, amount of jets, the material nozzles are machined from, are all designed around the volume of water and the working pressures of the high pressure water pump that is intended to be used. The nozzle tips have a specific design to penetrate even the most dense debris. Operating the machinery and the hoses for this process involves training and is a very dangerous job even in the best of outdoor conditions. The hoses and nozzle tips when under high pressure in operation can severly hurt someone and the people around them. It is very important to use a licensed & Insured professional for this service. All Storm Drains Inc. proudly serves the Nassau County & Suffolk County, Long Island, NY areas.
In the drain cleaning industry here on Long Island we use triplex pumps for small or large pipe cleaning projects. We also use single piston high pressure water pumps to clean larger pipes. Sometimes prior to locating the exact point of the blockage, All Storm Drains Inc. utilizes it's fleet of vacuum trucks that manage the flood water submerging the main pipe or system access.
What is a Catch Basin Catch Basins can flow directly to a sump, brook, creek, river, lake, bay, and sometimes right to the ocean. It is not uncommon to find used engine oil, antifreeze, and other common solvents and toxins inside of Catch Basins.
I have also found animals stuck in these drains, bullfrogs, a snake, big turtles, fish, and crawfish. I even found my cat Stormy, he was less than two months old stuck in a storm drain. Keeping toxins out of catch basins and storm drains is very necessary for the environment.
Having a reputable company clean your catch basins, storm drains, dry wells, outflow pipes, is also critical. When a business cares to clean a drain correctly and dispose of the material correctly it keeps the environment healthy which benefits all ecosystems, our food, water, animals, and even each other.
In some cases the bottom of a Catch Basin is solid, other times they have, what I refer to as a weep hole that leaches rain water directly into the sand below the floor.…
A drywell is a small excavated pit filled with either gravel or stone that plays a vital role in temporary storage of rainwater until it eventually soaks into the ground soil. Its connection to a roof downspout is direct or indirect for effective collection of rainwater. Although it has many merits associated with rain garden, it barely involves landscaping or planting maintenance.
Many people prefer to install a drywell at home because the overall installation cost is affordable. Ideally, it is the one of the quickest and simplest ways to manage rainwater from the rooftop, allowing it to infiltrate through the soil. This in turn recharges the ground aquifer. In addition, it enhances water quality as it effectively reduces rainwater runoff and sewer overflow into the local streams and rivers. Over the course of time, solid and scum, lint as well as soap in wastewater can easily clog openings in the well walls and pores in the surrounding soi…
