How a jetter works to unblock a drain

Once the blockage is located accurately, the nozzle of the jetter is fed via hose to butt right up to the blockge.

Then using high water pressure in multiple directions, the specific nozzle is able to dislodge and flush the blockage.

A blocked drain can be caused by

  • Tree roots
  • Crushed pipes under vehicle tracks
  • Gradual build-up of grease and small kitchen waste
  • One main large item, catching smaller items to cause a complete blockage

The jetter nozzle is designed to propel and rotate against the blockage til it clears:

When Traditional Methods don’t work

Jetters are not the only way to clear drains. There are older methods, like plungers and pokers.

But when blockages are deep, difficult, or urgent, the best option is the latest technology in drain clearing: Howarth Plumbing’s water jetter.
