What is Hydro Jetting?
Blockages in your plumbing system can lead to clogged drains and contaminated water. One of the most effective ways to unclog a drain is hydro jetting. A hydro jet is a snake-like tool that uses high-pressure water jets to remove clogs from a pipe. After an inspection, the plumber will insert a nozzle to blast water at high pressure.
The water breaks apart any buildup or debris that can clog drains and contaminate your water supply. But hydro jetting may not be the best solution for every problem. If your pipes are weak or leaking, hydro jetting can cause weakened parts of the pipe to break. Our technicians will inspect your system and determine if hydro jetting is right for you.
What Types of Issues Can It Fix
Hydro jetting can remove hair clogs, grease buildup, and other debris that builds up along the pipe walls. Some of the other benefits include:
- Improved water pressure
- Fewer clogs and pipe repairs
- Longer plumbing lifespan
- Reduction in plumbing odors
While snaking a drain can break up clogs, it leaves residue on the walls of the pipes. Hydro jetting cleans the entire inside of the pipe without using harsh chemicals. The water pressure is so strong it can even break up tree roots and remove debris from outdoor pipes. A video inspection of the pipes can determine whether hydro jetting can fix your problem.
Dealing with a smaller clog? We also have simpler drain cleaning methods to help combat things like hair in the shower drain or dirt buildup around outside drains.
