What is sewer jetting?

Sewer Jetting is the application of directed high pressure water to remove clogs, dirt, grease, and/or grime from pipes to allow them to flow freely. A Pump, along with a jetter tip to create restriction, is used to generate a pressure in some cases powerful enough to cut through concrete. Sewer Jetting is a valuable means of cleaning interior pipe surfaces at incredible speeds.


Definition - What does Sewer Cleaning mean?

Sewer cleaning can be defined as the process of cleaning sewer pipelines that carry waste water from homes, offices and industries. It is an important responsibility of every home and city to keep sewers clean to prevent overflow and foul smell. Everything flushed down a toilet or poured down a drain goes through a pipeline into the sewer system.

Sewer lines are now laid using trench-less technology, and access points along the line are provided in case of blockage due to solid waste or overflow.


Sewer Cleaning

Sewers are inspected using remotely operated crawlers with mounted cameras that are passed through the pipeline. In places where blockage or damage is found, cleaning or repair is undertaken. Usually, where blockage in sewers is found, a nozzle is inserted into the access point nearest to the blockage and water is released at high pressure that pushes the blockage into the main sewer system. 

At times, the blockage includes gravel, roots, sand and other such debris pushed into the sewer system through storm drains during bad weather conditions. In such cases, vacuum trucks are employed that suck up the stuck debris and dirt and dispose them in a landfill.

Note: Homeowners are responsible for the clogged sewers if it’s within their property. In main sewer lines, municipal workers help clean out the debris and blockage to keep the sewer in good condition to prevent overflow.

What Is A Septic System and How Does It Work?


How Your Septic System Works

Septic systems are underground wastewater treatment structures, commonly used in rural areas without centralized sewer systems. They use a combination of nature and proven technology to treat wastewater from household plumbing produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry.

A typical septic system consists of a septic tank and a drain-field, or soil absorption field. 

The septic tank digests organic matter and separates float-able matter (e.g., oils and grease) and solids from the wastewater. Soil-based systems discharge the liquid (known as effluent) from the septic tank into a series of perforated pipes buried in a leach field, chambers, or other special units designed to slowly release the effluent into the soil.

Alternative systems use pumps or gravity to help septic tank effluent trickle through sand, organic matter (e.g., peat and sawdust), constructed wetlands, or other media to remove or neutralize pollutants like disease-causing pathogens, nitrogen, phosphorus, and other contaminants. Some alternative systems are designed to evaporate wastewater or disinfect it before it is discharged to the soil.

Specifically, this is how a typical conventional septic system works:

  1. All water runs out of your house from one main drainage pipe into a septic tank.
  2. The septic tank is a buried, water-tight container usually made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene. Its job is to hold the wastewater long enough to allow solids to settle down to the bottom forming sludge, while the oil and grease floats to the top as scum.
    Compartments and a T-shaped outlet prevent the sludge and scum from leaving the tank and traveling into the drain-field area.
  3. The liquid wastewater (effluent) then exits the tank into the drain-field.
  4. The drain-field is a shallow, covered, excavation made in unsaturated soil. Pre-treated wastewater is discharged through piping onto porous surfaces that allow wastewater to filter though the soil. The soil accepts, treats, and disperses wastewater as it percolates through the soil, ultimately discharging to groundwater.
    If the drain-field is overloaded with too much liquid, it can flood, causing sewage to flow to the ground surface or create backups in toilets and sinks.
  5. Finally, the wastewater percolates into the soil, naturally removing harmful coli-form bacteria, viruses and nutrients. Coli-form bacteria is a group of bacteria predominantly inhabiting the intestines of humans or other warm-blooded animals. It is an indicator of human fecal contamination.

Do you have a septic system?

You may already know you have a septic system. If you do not know, here are tell-tale signs that you probably do:

  • You use well water.
  • The waterline coming into your home does not have a meter.
  • You show a “$0.00 Sewer Amount Charged” on your water bill or property tax bill.
  • Your neighbors have a septic system.

How to find your septic system

Once you have determined that you have a septic system, you can find it by:

  • Looking on your home’s “as built” drawing.
  • Checking your yard for lids and manhole covers.
  • Contacting a septic system service provider to help you locate it.

Failure symptoms: Mind the signs!

A foul odor is not always the first sign of a malfunctioning septic system. Call a septic professional if you notice any of the following:

  • Wastewater backing up into household drains.
  • Bright green, spongy grass on the drainfield, especially during dry weather.
  • Pooling water or muddy soil around your septic system or in your basement.
  • A strong odor around the septic tank and drain-field.
