Hydro-Jetting Explained

Hydro jetting is a process that uses highly pressurized water jets that clear the interior of plumbing pipes. The hydro jetter is the most effective method of removing debris, clogs, and buildup caused by things like:

  • Roots
  • Debris
  • Grease
  • Or a belly in the line

Most peoples go to solution to one of these issues is to try to use an auger or sewer machine to take care of the blockage, while there is always a time and place for this, large problems often require larger solutions.

If only an auger or plumbing snake is used there are 2 things that could hinder the job from being fully taken care of.

  1. The auger might only be able to penetrate slightly through the blockage and the surrounding problem will remain, leading to future calls to a plumber.
  2. There is a very good chance there will still be standing water in the sewer line after the plumber has completed the snaking process.

If water or debris is left in the drain line there is a good possibility a belly, or crack might be missed.
