Why Do We Promote Hydro Jetting? It’s The Grease

Over 3 years ago, Rocket Plumbing refocused on getting better tools in place for our professionals to use in order to deliver faster and more long term solutions. One of our best upgrades was acquiring our own Hydro Jetting machine. It works by pushing water at a force of 3000 psi through a specially designed hose to blast a blockage like grease. It being just water, it is very safe for pipes, in the right trained hands. We use our Hydro Jet machine every day in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Redondo Beach, Irvine, and Venice. Restaurants and food processing plants are the most likely in need of drain cleaning on an almost quarterly basis, as do lots of commercial properties. Thankfully, residential customers will need drain cleaning a lot less, so it can be needed yearly or bi annually for most homes. The best thing about Hydro Jetting a drain line however, is how thorough it can clean a blockage. Most plumbing companies use a Rooter, snaking or Auger tool that just pokes holes in blockages. That means you would be depending on waste water to go thru a hole of about an inch wide (the diameter of the tool) in most cases. Our Hydro Jet can blow ALL the material thru the drain line, and even cleaning the inner wall surface of food processing byproduct material that can snag new material coming down the drain line. Does your property have slow drains? Do you hear gurgling noises in your Read More

Hydro-Jetting Plumbing often results in Zero call-backs

Since introducing Hydro Jetting Plumbing to our list of services at Rocket Plumbing here in Los Angeles, we have noticed something.  Many of our customers who have been getting snaking and rootering from competitors are calling us now.   Why? When build-up in drains from rust or corrosion, or years of grease going thru the pipes have caused drain clogs, these new customers realize that snaking the drain only pokes a hole in these obstructions.  We show them video from our sewer camera pinpointing where the blockage is and there it is…  that hole in the clog that never actually ever disappears. The snaking or rootering is a temporary solution.   Call Rocket Plumbing in Los Angeles now to get a plumber to your home or business “Rocket Fast!” The cost of hydro jetting service with our plumbing service is only about twice the cost of drain cleaning with a snake. For that, the benefits are: – The clog is GONE, not temporarily “band aided” – You will not need to call out a Los Angeles plumber to poke a hole thru that clog every year – It prolongs the life of the pipe or drain, saving big $$ for a potential crisis repair With the technologically superior Hydro Jetting now our standard drain cleanings solutions, we don’t get call backs for the same issue. Put it this way… if those other plumbing companies’ customers pay twice for a snake that a hydro-Jet would have solved, then it’s plain to Read More

Beverly Hills plumber question

Don’t hesitate to call Rocket Plumbing if your home or office in the Beverly Hills and surrounding areas needs a clogged drain, sewer drain rootering or hydro jetting, or just need your water heater checked. It shouldn’t be any surprise to see Rocket Plumbing trucks driving thru the 90210. Even the Rodeo Drive shopping district sometimes needs a plumber. This little area, population of 34,109, got it’s major start in our country based on something we plumbers have to manage every day… water. According to Wikipedia: Beverly Hills was incorporated in 1914 by a group of investors who had failed to find oil, but found water instead and eventually decided to develop it into a town.

The Best Clogged Drain Tool Is The Hydro Jet

Rocket Plumbing is committed to bring the best solutions to bear on our Los Angeles customers various plumbing repairs. A new machine we are excited about is the Hydro-jet. If we are to professionally and expeditiously deliver on our promise of top customer service and the best plumbing repair solutions, taking our tools seriously is part the work involved. This tool for the toughest, greasiest, compacted drains can be cleaned with our Hydro-Jetting system. There is nothing else like it out there. In our mission to assist in maintaining a healthy plumbing system throughout your home or business, the Hydro-jet deserves consideration. Hydro-jetting is the process of using water under high pressure to scour the pipe walls clean of grease, debris, roots, sand or dirt and flush it all out and away downstream. The Hydro-jetting service is unique in that it is the only process that can actually clean your lines. Because of this, hydro-jetting has become the industry standard for sewer and drain cleaning. The old way has been to use “snaking” or “rootering”. While using a cable to “snake” through a line and punch thru a blockage, it still left only a hole in the blockage. So by it’s nature, that is only a temporary fix. See the image below to appreciate the engineering quality that has gone into crafting this terrific tool, that cuts down the risk of a pipe or sewer line disaster, and keeps every thing flowing just as intended.

What Can You Expect To Pay For Los Angeles Water Heater Repair?

We came across this really terrific data about how much Water Heater Repair can cost. Their summation is: National Average   $526 Typical Range  $206 – $846 Low End $95 High End $1,338 We want to share with you this terrific information, and then share our own thoughts afterwards. Read the whole thing: The national average cost to repair a water heater is $526. The typical range for repairs is $206 and $846, though homeowners have spent as little as $100 and as much as $1,300. There is nothing worse than waking up on a frigid winter morning to a cold shower because the water heater that is on the fritz, or worse, has completely died! Conventional water heaters are relatively simple and straightforward in the way that they operate, so there are only a few things that can malfunction. Cold water enters the tank and is heated by an electric element or gas burner. As the water heats, pressure builds inside the tank. When you turn on a tap, pressure sends hot water out of the faucet. Problems could be as simple as a pilot light that has gone out, a circuit breaker that has tripped, or a thermostat that is broken. The average thermostat replacement cost is between $100-$300. Most other repairs are equally affordable. There are two main types: gas and electric. A gas unit works by way of a gas flame while an electric one works using electric elements, or coils. The two types have similar life spans and Read More

Tankless Water Heaters And How They Have Changed

Brian McMahon, ownerRocket Plumbing Tankless Water Heaters have changed quite a bit since I was first trained and certified to install them. While the benefits of immediate on-demand luxurious hot water and energy savings have always been there, another benefit with these water heaters was not there 13 years ago… ease of installation. Don’t get me wrong, these tankless water heaters are quite the project. However, back in 2005, our quotes for them had to be $1000 more than today’s installations for a very good reason… Venting. You see, back then, we had to use 5″ metal outbound pipe to vent heat and energy. This pipe in most homes had to be built from scratch, and necessarily meant cutting thru walls to get the exit out into the outdoors. Today, we can use PVC pipe, which is much easier for plumbers to work with. We can get this part of the project done so much quicker, that our estimates for tankless water heater installation is, as I said, $1000 cheaper than in the mid 2000s. It’s one of the things that energizes me about the plumbing industry… constant innovation and change with the tools, materials, and ever improving engineering forces the industry to constantly improve our living standards.
