What Is Hydro Jet Plumbing?
What is hydro-jetting?
Are you suffering from clogged and stinky pipes in your home? Have you run out of solutions and don’t know what to do next? Try hydro-jetting!
Hydro-jetting uses high-pressure water to scrub sewer pipes and drains. In some cases, the water pressure reaches as high as 3,500 psi. This force is strong enough to cut through and remove any debris that may be blocking your sewer lines. Most household blockages are resolved using a snake, but this might not be the most efficient method to address such issues. Hydro-jetting is a procedure where high-pressure water is used to scrub the inside of a drain pipe clean in a way that traditional methods can’t.
In the hands of our trained professionals, hydro-jetting will do the job right.
Pros and Cons
A snake is usually enough to remove most clogs in the average household. However, when a snake doesn’t work, it can also alert you to more serious problems. On the flip side, hydro- jetting takes pipe cleaning to the next level. It doesn’t just break up clogs; it clears your plumbing lines of material that builds up on pipe walls. Whereas drain snaking can only remove more solid debris, this pipe-clearing technique can also remove obstructions, including oil and grease, that settle in a drain from a kitchen. Snaking doesn’t thoroughly clean your pipes in the same way. It is just a temporary solution. While hydro-jetting can clear almost any clog, it’s not an option for the do-it-yourselfer. Hydro-jetting requires the assistance of a professional.
When performed correctly, this method clears your pipes, so they run like new again. The procedure is perfectly safe for residential and commercial drains but should be completed by a trained professional.
Four Key Benefits of Hydro-Jetting
- Cleaning, not just unclogging
Hydro-jet cleaning is more efficient than many other drain-cleaning methods on the market. It can penetrate and extract built-up debris that can clog and get caked onto pipes. Conveniently, hydro-jets come in different sizes, so an experienced plumber can determine the appropriate pressure force to remove debris without damaging the pipes.

- Removing bacteria
Hydro-jetting doesn’t just clean; it also disinfects. The pressure of the water is so forceful that it removes not only the grease, soap, and scum buildup, but also any bacteria that settles in your drains. If you’re experiencing foul smells from your drains, hydro-jetting can leave your drain pipes clean and fresh.
- More economical and environmentally safe
Hydro-jetting is chemical-free and lasts longer than other methods. Jet water removes the clog completely and safely, preventing self-healing clogs of substances such as grease from reforming. It is also very environmentally safe. While traditional drain cleaning should be done a minimum of two times a year, hydro-jetting is so detailed that it secures your pipes against clogs for several years.
How does it work?
- Sewer line inspection: A professional plumber will perform a video camera inspection that will check for damaged or broken pipes. This way, they will identify the nature of the clog.
- Pressure jetting the line: Once the line has been inspected and the issue identified, the plumber will insert a special hose and cleaning head into the line that will run high-pressure water through it. Typically, several passes are made to fully clean away tough blockages.
- Quality inspection: After the hydro-jetting is complete, the sewer line will be inspected again with a sewer line video camera to ensure that the line is clear and functioning at maximum capacity.
Hydro-Jetting accomplishes two key objectives
- Hydro-jetting has the power to burst open the toughest blockages.
- Hydro-jetting pressure washes the “walls” of the sewer line and scours the full diameter of the pipe, flushing debris and leaving lines clear with no damage to the drain pipes.
