We'd understand if you were skeptical of a plumber's drain cleaning services. Can we really do something all that different from what you can do? Are we just selling you a bill of goods? Well, to help clean your possible suspicions, we're going to walk you through how our technicians get into and clean out your pipes. Here's the tech, techniques, and best techniques we bring to every task, guaranteed.

Minor Cleaning

This is the stuff we do on each and every drain cleaning job we're called out on. When our technicians clean clogs and clean pipes, they aren't just clearing up your plumbing for now. They are making sure whatever led to the clog in the first place gets dealt with, too. Here is how:

Rooter Machine/Snake

A rooter system is a sort of plumber's snake, or auger. It consists of up to 100 ft of coiled, flexible metal cable less than an inch broad. An expert technician matches the bladed mind of this cable down your clogged pipe line. A motor attached at the opposite end of the cable and also operated by the tech continues to uncoil the cable, allowing the head to move farther down the pipe. After the head of this rooter reaches a clog, the engine will fight to keep pushing it through the pipe.

That's when the technician activates the head's rotation. Metal blades grind up your obstruction. The rooter works the head back-and-forth, which makes sure it catches any residue left on the pipe walls. Rooters may be used on just about any obstruction up to and including tree roots which grew into your primary line. That is how it got its name.


Following the drain has been cleared, your technician applies Bio-Smart down the pipes to prevent future clogs. Unlike most drain cleaners, Bio-Smart is a safe and environmentally friendly drain cleaning powder. Rather than corrosive chemicals, it uses natural microbes that digest fats, oils, grease, and other organic wastes. When your technician pours down these microbes your drain, they feed build-up that is gathered along your pipe's walls.

Bio-Smart works better than any drain cleaners because it doesn't only push waste further down the drain. Rather, its microbes actually breaks down waste and dispose of waste. These germs aren't acidic, so you don't need to fret about the cleanser wearing out your pipes. It's better drain cleaning through the power of mathematics!

Major Cleanup

The techniques we've described so far already sound fairly"major," huh? Well, sometimes it still isn't enough. If a customer's pipes have not been cleaned in a long time, there may be lots of different sources of clog or slowdown. If that's the situation, we bring out the big guns. These are our drain-cleaning doomsday weapons.

DrainVision Sewer Camera

The"DrainVision" camera system is a camera program specifically designed to fit into sewer lines. Utilizing DrainVision, a Jet Plumbers Arvada Colorado technician can inspect the entire length of your clogged pipe system. The camera attaches to the end of a length of cable. A light at the end of the camera illuminates the tube, and the camera sends a live video feed to a track attached to the system.

The tech uses this live video feed to inspect the whole length of the pipe. They'll be able to point out some obstacles. Ok, but how will the DrainVision actually help clear debris in your pipes? We're glad you asked!


The hydro-jetter is a Jet Plumbers Arvada Colorado tech's"finishing move." The jet system joins to the DrainVision camera equipment. A small, flexible hose runs along the length of the cable. The hose joins several nozzles at the head of the camera back into a tank of highly-pressurized warm water. When activated, the nozzles open, along with the warm water at the tank blasts from these at 8,000 PSI.

Employing the camera along with elastic hose, the tech just maneuvers that the hydro jets to blast away any obstacles the camera finds. The jets are more than powerful enough to clean any obstructions, such as tree roots. After the mix video review and hydro-jetting is finished, your pipe partitions will work as though they were brand new, guaranteed.
