What the Heck Is Hydro Jetting?

Illustration of a hydro jet Is a clogged drain becoming a common occurrence in your home? There are many causes of a clogged drain. Over time, drain lines can develop an accumulation of soap scum, hair, food particles, and any other debris that is pushed down in them. If you have large trees or bushes close to where the main drain runs from your home to the city sewer at the street, root buildup may be a problem that periodically needs attention.

Any of these can cause blockages in a plumbing system or a sewer line. When there is a blockage, it’s time to call in a professional, preferably one that offers hydro jetting as a possible solution.

Jetting or hydro jetting is a sewer-cleaning process that works on various types and sizes of pipe, including storm and sewer drain systems. Unlike mechanical rodding with a cable or snake, which just cuts a hole in the blockage, hydro jetting removes the blockage from the inner wall of the pipe, returning the opening to its original diameter.

This high-pressure cleaning is a proven solution for removing up to 100 percent of the grease, tree roots, and debris built up in sewer lines and drains. In hydro jetting, a hose connected to a tank of water and a pressurized machine releases a high-powered flow of water through your plumbing pipes. This pressure will safely remove scum, grease and any other debris built up along the walls of the pipes. The process can resolve the most common plumbing problems.

Make sure you hire a professional who knows how to do hydro jetting. The process is a safe way to remove blockages that cause clogging. However, it can damage sewer lines that have been infiltrated by tree roots.

Be sure the professional you hire does a full inspection of your system before using the hydro jetting process on your pipes. It’s best to have a video camera inspection done before and after hydro jetting has been completed to make sure the problem was resolved.

If you’re experiencing problems with your plumbing system, work with an experienced, knowledgeable plumbing professional. Using the proper diagnostic tools, hydro jetting allows a professional to free your pipes, drains, and lines from any unwanted debris.
