What is Hydro-Jetting?


Hydro-jetting is one of the most effective ways to clean and clear blockages in any plumbing line and it is ecofriendly and environmentally safe. Hydro-jetting eliminates some of the most stubborn blockages and buildup and can even eliminate pesky tree roots in the main line. Over time, hydro-jetting is a more cost-effective way to address buildup and blockages.

Hydro-jetting is a technique where an experienced trained technician utilizes a high-pressure hose with a specialized nozzle hooked to a machine that pressurizes water to produce a jetted stream into your pipe, clearing and cleaning any debris in its path. This high-pressure water stream cleanses the entire diameter of the pipe while flushing out all debris and bacteria along the way. Hydro-jetting is ideal for all plumbing lines, kitchen drain, laundry lines, tubs and showers, lavatory sinks, floor drains, and sewer.

Any home, business, or building that has a plumbing system is ultimately at risk of slow, sluggish, or even clogged drains. Over time, debris such as grease, soap, scum, and other build up begins to stick to the walls of the plumbing. At first, this debris and build up may not be noticeable or cause issue to your plumbing system. However, as time passes, and more debris collects, the buildup can and will cause the drain to become slow or even clogged. Using a traditional method of snaking the drain, which is an auger type machine that will break through the debris can resolve the issue. However, this resolution may not be long term as it is clearing a path in the drain but not cleaning out the issue entirely. The hydro-jetting system is designed to utilize a high-pressure water stream that will remove debris and build up as it passes through the pipe. The pressure of the water and the appropriate jetting nozzle is determined by the trained technician based on the size of the pipe being cleaned. Prior to jetting the pipe, the technician will use a drain camera to inspect the drain, looking for the issue needing to be resolved as well as any other concerns such as a damaged or broken pipe prior to jetting.

Using the hydro jetting system will not only resolve the immediate issue, because it is cleaning your drain, it will act as a longer solution to your slow or clogged drain. Choosing the hydro-jetting service to clean and clear your drain lasts longer and ultimately gives your drain a more thorough cleaning.
