Jet Blasting in Brisbane
Dealing with blocked drains, debris buildup, or recurring plumbing issues? When more conservative solutions aren’t effective, we use jet blasting (also known as water or hydro jetting) to get the job done. This technique is safe, efficient, & reliable – which is why it’s so widely trusted and used by plumbing professionals. S&J Plumbing and Gasfitting is equipped with advanced jet blasting equipment that’s ready to tackle even the toughest obstructions and buildup.
Understanding Jet Blasting
Jet blasting uses pressurised water to clear blockages within pipes. Powerful streams of water are shot through the pipeline, removing the immediate blockage and also cleaning the pipe's walls for longer-lasting results.
Advantages of Jet Blasting Over Traditional Methods
Comprehensive cleaning: Comprehensive cleaning: Unlike standard methods, which might only poke a hole through the blockage, jet blasting effectively clears the clog and cleans the pipe.
- Eco-friendly: No harsh chemicals means it's safe for the environment and your pipes.
- Versatility: Jet blasting can be used for residential and commercial plumbing systems, tackling minor to severe blockages.
- Cost-effective: Water jetting reduces the chance of future obstructions, saving you money (and headaches) in the long run.
What Can Jet Blasting Address?
- Intrusive tree roots: Stubborn roots seeking moisture find their way into pipelines. Water jetting can cut and clear these effectively.
- Grease and fat build-ups: Often a problem in kitchen drains, grease and fat can be completely cleared with jet blasting.
- Silt and debris: Especially in stormwater drains, jetting can remove annoying silt and debris buildup.
- Foreign objects: Accidental blockages caused by objects can also be treated with high-pressure water jetting.

How Does the Process Work?
We will start with an initial CCTV camera inspection to pinpoint blockages within the plumbing system. Once identified, the technician will access the pipe and problem area through an entry point – often an existing cleanout. The jet blaster, which has been properly calibrated, then releases high-pressure water to dislodge obstructions like tree roots, grease, and debris. This forceful water stream not only breaks up the clog but also scours and cleans the inner walls of the pipe. A final camera inspection verifies that everything has been completely taken care of, leaving the pipe nice and clear.
Hydro jetting is gentle on pipes while being tough on blockages. It eliminates the need for harsh chemicals and potential digging, ensuring your property remains undisturbed. This eco-friendly approach not only preserves the integrity of your plumbing system but also ensures the safety of your household, local water sources, and surrounding environment. And, by avoiding invasive digging procedures, hydro jetting maintains the aesthetics of your landscape, saving you potential restoration costs.
