Why Hydro Flushing Is the Best Option for Waste Removal

Hydro flushing is the fast, effective, no-dig way to manage and clean pipes, stormwater drains and home drains. Hydro flushing is where small volumes of water are blasted at a high speed to clean out grease, sludge and deposits from your drainage system without damaging your pipes.

Effective hydro flushing will clear your drainage before the troubles start, avoiding blocked drains that will require costly repairs and excessive levels of clean-up. At HydroVac, we use state-of-the-art flushing equipment to remove these problems for you.

The Benefits of Hydro Flushing Your Drainage System

Hydro flushing is pumping large volumes of water at a high speed and at an angle, creating a sudden influx of fast, powerful, rotating water. As the hydro flush hose moves through the pipes, the water loosens debris and draws it out of the pipe very effectively. Even the toughest blockages can be removed this way without damaging pipes, restoring optimal water flow.

Cleaning your drains using this type water pressure ensures:

  • safe drain cleaning for any residential and commercial property
  • safe drain cleaning for your PVC and/or metal drain pipes
  • the clog is broken up by cleaning the entire inside diameter of your pipe
  • your drains are scrubbed clean and any residue is flushed out

Hydro flushing is faster than other drain cleaning techniques and is very versatile, suited to jobs of all sizes, ranging from homes to heavy-duty industrial properties.

Different Types of Hydro Flushing

Root Cutting

We use delightfully brutal ‘Warthog head’ nozzles for drains that have roots growing inside them. This little beastie spins at a high velocity, cutting through roots – as well as hardened grease and debris deposits – while pressurised water blasts whatever remains away. Because this technique also scrubs out your drains, they should run freely for longer. This a very safe and effective method of clearing your drains and getting them back to top working order.
