High Pressure Water (HPW) Jetting Explained!


Everyone knows that drains and pipes get blocked from time to time, but we don't imagine many of you, (unless you are a drainage expert yourself), will know what actually goes on underground when we, your local EXPERTS, Metro Rod, are on site at a property solving problems for our customers.

One thing you WILL always see are safety barriers and signage set up, as health and safety are of paramount importance to us.

One of Metro Rod's Specialist Services - High Pressure Water Jetting - Explained:

High Pressure Water Jetting is the process of using water propelled at high speeds to clear pipes and clean surfaces and materials. This process is particularly effective in the clearance of drains, as the impact of high pressure water on a blockage is to soften or emulsify it. This will restore flow to your drainage system, aided by the actual water that is used in the jetting process. All our well equipped Metro Rod Vans carry HPW Jetting equipment.

So - When do we use High Pressure Water Jetting?

If you have blocked drains disrupting your sinks, toilets, manholes or kitchens, then Metro Rod can help solve your problems with our HPW Jetting service. It is an everyday fact that pipes and drains block up. This is not necessarily due to abuse, although fats, grease and items such as wipes can play a part. Sometimes the drain will be damaged or have reached the end of its life, although most times clearance with the most appropriate technique (quite often high pressure water jetting) will offer a long term solution. One thing is certain... nobody wants blocked drains or pipes and this is where Metro Rod can help.

Using our state-of-the-art equipment, our expert drainage engineers will arrive on site, set up and use water, blasted through pipes beneath your property, as shown below.
