At Mr Emergency Plumbing we are the experts when it comes to jetting your drains, using a hydrojet drain machines.
A hydro-jet, also known as a jetter, is a high pressure, trailer mounted, water pump that is inserted into your drains and pumps a jet of water at a rate of up to 5000 psi into your pipes. The force of the water spray is strong enough to efficiently clear any blockages including stubborn tree root infiltrations.
A hydrojet drain machine could be compared to a high water pressure hose that you would use to clean your car or driveway, but on a much larger scale with a significantly higher water pressure spray.
The head attachment of the hydro-jet drain machine consists of multiple outlets facing in all directions which effectively clean the pipes whilst clearing all blockages. The hydro-jet is an advanced machine able to clear out blockages that are stubborn or hard to reach, much faster than an electric eel. The hydro-jet is able to clear blockages up to 60 meters, compared to electric eels – which are usually effective only up to a depth of 23 meters.
The high pressure water spray is able to clear away all tree roots, waste, leaves, debris, foreign objects or anything that may have clogged up in your pipes, its effectiveness is such that that the pipes will be cleaned well enough to no longer see any leftover debris when using a CCTV camera to inspect all obstructions have been cleared and if any damaged was caused from the blockage.
Hydro-jet drain machines are most commonly used to clear blocked stormwater or sewer drains, as they are the most economical and environmentally friendly way to clear these stubborn blockages efficiently. Stormwater and sewer drains mainly become blocked due to leaves, debris and tree root masses. Heavy rains and storms will usually show what type of condition your stormwater drains are actually in, as the increased water flow gushes leaves and debris into the pipes; if there is already a tree root mass growing in there the pipe will quickly become blocked as it all accumulates together.
A blocked sewer or stormwater drain is classed as an emergency and needs to be attended to as soon as possible. If a blocked or flooded sewer or stormwater drain is left for too long the water will continue to flood and cause severe damage to your property, and in some instances health and environmental concerns. This water can become contaminated if pooled for too long, and damaged sewage drains have been known to contribute to hepatitis and food contamination.
Stormwater pipes mainly consist of the pipework that carries water away from your property through guttering and down pipes into the main stormwater system. This water then travels into our oceans, harbours and rivers, if a blockage occurs that creates a contamination issue and this water is then expelled into our waterways. It is easy to see how environmental and health safety becomes a concern;making it vital to have this repaired quickly.

The power of the hydrojet also makes it suitable for commercial properties such as hospitals and restaurants. It is recommended that these establishments jet their drains regularly to save on future high maintenance costs, as this is an effective method of quickly removing any solidified cooking oils etc.
Blockages in drains occur for a variety of reasons including; tree roots, leaves, debris, cooking oils, food scraps, sanitary napkins and other foreign objects being flushed into toilets and paints or chemicals being poured into drains – causing corrosion.
