Hydro Flushing as Preventive Maintenance

It’s often said that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Well, when it comes to plumbing, a few dollars in prevention is worth more than thousands of dollars of repair and clean up costs in the aftermath of a malfunction. There are a few preventative measures you can put in place to keep your residential or commercial plumbing doing what it should – taking the things you don’t want pooling in your basement away from your home and disposing of them appropriately.

Hydro Flushing
Hydro Flushing - 1Hydro flushing is an excellent preventive measure. All sewer and waste pipes, over time, collect debris in the nooks and crannies – often it’s a buildup of silty sludge, which can trap other material. Once enough material gets trapped in a pipe to slow the flow of effluent, the problem will be compounded as the existing waste material gets compacted and more and more solids bunch together.

The result is an eventual stoppage of the pipe, a backup, and a potentially unpleasant and expensive flood.

Regular maintenance of your sewer pipes through hydro flushing (in which the buildup in your pipes is blasted away by a high-pressure water jet) is the most cost-effective and safe way to prevent these blockages from forming.

Preventive Maintenance Series – Video Line Inspection

As part of our series on preventive maintenance for your plumbing, let’s take a look at Video Line Inspection.

In Video Line Inspection, an Edenflo service technician will use specialized CCTV video camera equipment to inspect your residential or commercial waste pipes up close and personal – from the inside, where it’s easy to spot the problems and take action before they cause an expensive problem.

Edenflo Video Line InspectionVideo line inspection can help us find all manner of plumbing problems. Most often, it will alert us to a developing clog situation, and we can use hydro flushing (located on the same truck as the camera equipment) to get rid of the buildup before it impedes the system’s function.

We occasionally find more serious problems that require more serious repair work. Because of Video Line Inspection’s ability to pinpoint the exact location of a problem, you’ll save money because it will reduce the amount of costly excavation needed to affect a repair.

A plumbing system with a problem will tend to lead to other problems. Regular preventive maintenance is the key to reducing overall maintenance costs, and preventing disaster in the form of sewer back up and flooding.

Edenflo’s technicians are armed with the technology and know-how to solve your problems and save you money.
