Hydro-Jetting: What It Is and Why We Do It

Drain cleaning is one of the essential jobs of professional plumbers. There are many methods to provide effective drain cleaning (using chemical drain cleaner is not one of them), but the tool that we’ve found is the best for the job is the hydro-jetter. When you need clogs cleared or want your drains given a full cleaning, arrange for hydro-jetting service with us.

The Basics of Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting is the use of high-pressure water to remove build-up and deposits from the inside of drains. A hydro-jetter puts water at extremely high pressure (7,800 psi or more) and then sends it out a long hose and through a directional nozzle at the end. The hose is long enough for a plumber to send it down the drains of a house and through the complete length of the sewer line. As the water blasts out of the nozzle, it scours away tough deposits on the drainpipe walls and lets it flow down into the sewer system.

Why Hydro-Jetting Is Useful

Plumbers favor hydro-jetting over many other drain cleaning methods for a number of reasons:

  • Thorough: Hydro-jetting provides a complete drain cleaning. It leaves behind drainpipes that are in like-new condition, which makes it difficult for build up to start again.
  • Powerful: The toughest clogs have a hard time standing up against the force of the water pressure coming from a hydro-jetter. Even calcite deposits are blasted clean.
  • Safe for plumbing: Some ways of cleaning drains can end up damaging them, such as using chemicals. As long as professionals handle hydro-jetting, the drains won’t suffer damage.

We need to emphasize that last point: only call professional plumbers for this service. You can’t purchase a hydro-jetter on your own and do the job. It can even be dangerous! You only have to contact us to see that the work is done safe and right.
