High Pressure Water Jet

Using a high pressure water jet to clear blocked drains is like taking a hot knife to butter. The water, at a pressure of approximately 4,300 psi and flowing at twenty one litres per minute, is a force to be reckoned with.

Drain blockages are caused by a build-up of debris in the pipe work. This initial build-up causes the water flow to reduce in speed, which in turn allows further deposits. Tree roots can exasperate small existing problems as they work their way into small cracks in the pipe work and help to catch more unwanted material.

Designed for pipes between 40mm and 300mm, the high pressure water jet cuts through all debris with ease. It even destroys tree roots and other stubborn materials such as grease and sediments.

The high pressure water jet is easily operated by the professionals at Murphy’s Plumbing and only a connection to an exterior tap is required. A compact piece of specialised equipment, the high pressure water jet is the most effective machinery for clearing blocked drains.
