Sewer Nozzles Help Clear Out “Thirsty” Tree Roots in Sewer Systems

As utility companies know, tree roots can wreak havoc on pipes, clogging and eventually causing them to burst. This scenario presents two dilemmas: first, waste water escapes, which can pose serious health risks to people. Second, tree roots can also damage water pipes conveying clean water, which further aggravates the water shortage. To solve this problem, many utility companies use hydro jetting to dislodge these “thirsty” roots from the sewer system. By blasting powerful jets of water through the pipes, utility professionals can clear away any blockage to restore proper water flow and prevent pipes from bursting. To fulfill this task, utility companies need crucial pieces of equipment such as the appropriate sewer nozzles.
