Overcoming Tough Blockages

In the vast world of building and facilities management, one challenge that persistently stands out is the issue of blockages in plumbing systems. At MEB Total, we’ve seen our fair share of stubborn blockages that resist traditional methods of removal. It’s in tackling these tough challenges that we’ve found a particularly effective prevention method: high-pressure jetting. This method has emerged as a standout solution, transforming what could be a facilities manager’s nightmare into a manageable, and often swift, task.

The Stubborn Reality of Blockages

Whether it’s a commercial building, an educational institution, or a healthcare facility, the plumbing systems within these structures are essential networks, ensuring the smooth flow of water and waste. When blockages occur, they can disrupt daily operations, pose health risks, and, in the worst cases, cause significant property damage. Traditional methods, while effective for minor blockages, often fall short when faced with more formidable obstacles. This is where the innovative approach of high-pressure jetting comes into play.

High-Pressure Jetting

High-pressure jetting involves propelling a high-velocity stream of water through the plumbing system. This forceful yet non-destructive method cuts through blockages, dislodging grease, debris, and even tree roots that have invaded sewer lines. What makes this method particularly appealing is its versatility and efficiency. Not only can it clear blockages more effectively than conventional methods, but it also cleans the pipe walls, removing the build-up that often leads to future blockages.

The process begins with a thorough assessment of the blockage. Using CCTV technology, we can pinpoint the exact location and nature of the obstruction. This precision allows for targeted cleaning, reducing the risk of damage to the pipes and ensuring a more effective resolution. Once the area is identified, the high-pressure jetting equipment is deployed, with water pressures that can be adjusted to suit the specific requirements of each job. This adaptability makes high-pressure jetting suitable for a wide range of pipe sizes and types, from residential plumbing to large commercial sewer systems.

The Benefits 

The advantages of high-pressure jetting extend beyond simply clearing blockages. This method also contributes to the longevity and efficiency of plumbing systems. By thoroughly cleaning pipes, it prevents the quick recurrence of blockages, saving time and resources in the long run. Moreover, it’s an environmentally friendly solution. Unlike chemical cleaners that can harm the environment, high-pressure jetting uses only water, making it a sustainable choice for maintaining plumbing systems.

Preventative Maintenance

One of the key lessons we’ve learned through our extensive experience with high-pressure jetting is the value of preventative maintenance. Regularly scheduled jetting can keep systems clear, prevent the build-up of harmful substances, and ultimately avoid the emergencies that lead to the need for urgent and often more costly interventions. This proactive approach aligns with our ethos at MEB Total, where we believe in preventing problems before they arise, ensuring the smooth operation of all facilities we manage.

Implementing High-Pressure Jetting in Your Maintenance Plan

Incorporating high-pressure jetting into your regular maintenance schedule is a strategic move. It begins with an assessment of your current plumbing and sewer system’s condition and identifies any immediate blockage issues. From there, developing a maintenance plan that includes periodic high-pressure jetting can help maintain the integrity and efficiency of your plumbing systems. Working with a professional team that understands the intricacies of your facility’s infrastructure is crucial to implementing an effective maintenance strategy.
