Drain clogs aren’t all created equal, and at All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling, we might use a couple different formats to provide you with the high-quality drain cleaning services you need. The most well-known of these is drain snaking, using a long metal auger with an extended coil to physically enter the drain and remove clogs.
Another format that’s become more popular in recent years, however, is known as hydro-jetting. This process involves using water pressure to clean out a drain rather than an auger. There are certain benefits and drawbacks of hydro-jetting compared to snaking – let’s take a look.
Using a strong stream of water, hydro-jetting cleans your drains using high pressure. Water is pumped into the drain at levels ranging from 3,000 to 8,000 pounds per square inch (PSI), a very high rate. Hydro-jetting has become popular for some of the toughest clogs out there, some of which don’t respond fully to typical methods of drain cleaning.
There are just two potential downsides to hydro-jetting: Pipe safety and potential cost. There are times where water pressure is so strong that it damages older or more fragile pipes – however, at All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling, our expert plumbers know how to check for this sort of thing before they employ hydro-jetting. In addition, hydro-jetting is more expensive at some outlets – but with All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling, you’ll find excellent rates across the board.
