If you’re a homeowner, you may run into plumbing issues at one time or another. Indeed, it happens that your pipes are clogged, and that the situation exceeds your skills. The solution may then be to clean or unclog your pipes, your septic tank or other with the help of professionals using a hydrocleaner. What is that? The following article will give you information on this subject.
What is a water cleaner?
A sewer cleaner is a tool used to sanitize and unclog pipe networks and sewers. It is usually equipped with a high-pressure water system, a vacuum pump, a frame, and a tank. It allows you to intervene in a wide range of situations. A sewer cleaner can, for example, be used to empty and clean septic tanks, empty and clean grease traps, perform cleaning, unblocking, pumping, descaling, and cleaning of sewers, pipes, and gutters. There are several types of sewer sewers (sewer truck, semi-trailer sewer, mini-sewer sewer, mobile sewer, and trailer sewer sewer) that can be used to manage all types of sanitation problems both in private individuals, communities, businesses or industries.
The different types of sewers
The sewer cleaner truck is usually used for major road works in urban areas. It is equipped with a cistern and sometimes an inspection camera, which is useful for transporting a large quantity of sludge and wastewater. This also allows you to quickly identify areas of obstruction. The semi-trailer sewer and the sewer on trailer consist of a towing vehicle, which guarantees its mobility, and a trailer, where the sewer equipment is located. This is again ideal for large cleaning jobs although they have a smaller size than the sewer cleaner truck. The mini-sewer or mobile sewer is most often used indoors because of their small size. They are still powerful machines thanks to the presence of a good electric motor and a professional pump. They are used to clean the smallest drains. They are also transportable and are equipped with two wheels for mobility.
How does a water cleaner work?
Its operation is quite simple. The high-pressure pump propels the water that is stored in the cistern at a pressure of 150 to 400 bars directly into the pipe to be unblocked or emptied, which helps to break down and free the blockages. Indeed, under the pressure of the water, the impurities are detached from the wall of the pipes. They are then sucked up by the vacuum pump to be stored in a dedicated tank. They will be transferred later to a waste treatment center.
If you think your problem requires this type of equipment, do not hesitate to contact professionals who will be able to give you the facts and give you more information on the procedure adapted to your situation.
