Will the soil be affected when I clean my drainage?
No, this only occurs when a high pressure and a low input speed is used.
This only occurs when a high pressure and a slow input speed is used. In the early days high pressure (100 bar pump pressure) draincleaners were used to clean drainage systems, however this way of working turned out to be inefficient. When using high pressure the hose will be pulled through the drain, and because of the pulsing pressure emitted by the pump the rinsing head will linger a few (milli)seconds on the same location. This disrupts the drainage system and its pores in the surrounding soil. These surrounding pores partly take care of a natural water drainage.
It therefore is important to keep the soil surrounding the drainage tubes intact. Homburg Draincleaners are safe to use because they use a low pump pressure of only 35 bar. This results in a water pressure of 10 to 15 bars at the nozzle. When an Homburg Draincleaner is being used, your soil will not be affected in a negative way!
