Water Jetting Service Frozen Pipes Lines


Regardless of where the problem lies, we have the tools to get the job done. Our new water jetting service van is fully equipped with its own water supply. This ensures that we can take care of the blockage, even in locations where a water connection isn’t available.

Pressurized water is extremely powerful. Gilk Plumbing’s mobile water jetting unit is equipped with an extremely durable hose which has a specialized nozzle mounted on the end. Using the nozzle’s forward and reverse water jets, we can control and propel direct, powerful streams of pressurized water through your clogged drain, sewer, or frozen water lines to break up and remove the toughest blockage. With special root nozzles, we can break up and clear out nearly any root from the line. Water jetting can be controlled to clear specific drains like a kitchen sink, floor drain, storm or drain systems and main sewer lines. By regulating both the pressure and volume of the water, we’ll scrub the full diameter of your pipe, removing all the debris and rendering it clean. Because the water jetting process uses ordinary water, it is environmentally safe, extremely efficient and affordable.


In addition to our 24-hour emergency water jetting service, Gilk Plumbing offers routine water jetting in Richmond, MN, and the surrounding areas. From Spring Hill to Cold Spring and Albany to Eden Valley, MN, including everywhere in between, we’ve got you covered. Homes, industries, and commercial businesses, such as restaurants and hotels are all prone to buildup in their lines from fat, oil, grease, heavy scale, tree roots, etc. If ignored, this buildup can lead to blockages that cause basement or ground floor flooding, damage to property, serious health and environmental risks and loss of business.

For the average single-family dwelling, the water jetting process can stave off most buildup problems for several years. Depending on the business, more frequent water jetting will be necessary to keep ahead of obstructions in commercial and industrial situations.


One of the biggest challenges we face during a Midwest winter is dealing with frozen pipes and water lines. Many of us might be tempted to apply heat to the affected area to thaw the ice, such as using a blowtorch or a propane torch. However, this is actually very dangerous, and if done improperly, it can create an even bigger mess. 

A water jet, on the other hand, will cut through the ice clogs effectively and safely. By using a stream of high pressure water, we can remove the toughest ice blockage from frozen pipes and water lines.

If your pipe or water line is frozen, contact us for 24-hour emergency water jetting service. We’ll quickly get things working again!
