Pressure Washers are highly powerful and produce an incredibly high-pressure stream of water that will result in severe damage if aimed at smooth surfaces like marble or plastic.
Although pressure washing can be a great way to keep your drainpipes in good shape, you must get them inspected beforehand. Pipe inspections will tell us if they’re up for the job or not and allow for the safe operation of any plumbing equipment used during the cleaning process.
If tree roots are growing inside one, our sewer jet attachment works exceptionally well at removing soft clogs like grease-soap scum. However, when dealing with blocked drains caused by this sort of thing, a drill (or bell) would likely feel much thicker than what is expected from something meant only intended to remove small amounts of debris around homes. This means that a tiny hole might have been just enough for the roots to grow through it and into your pipes, leaving you with a bigger mess than imagined.
So before starting any types of procedures related to plumbing, use extreme caution, inspect all fixtures thoroughly, and if anything suspicious is discovered, contact a professional as soon as possible to avoid pressure washer damage or, worse – pressure washer flooding.
