Using Hydro-Jetting for Drain Clogs

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.

Hydro-Jetting Basics

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.

Pros of Hydro-Jetting

  • Performance: The water pressure being used here is very powerful, and it’s extremely rare to find a drain clog that can’t be cleared up using this format. Hydro-jetting is also perfect for basic drain maintenance when used in slightly lower-pressure formats, another reason it’s becoming more popular.
  • Versatility: Hyrdo-jetting works well anywhere – in the home, the commercial business or elsewhere.
  • Roots and branches: Some of the most serious drain clogs extend to the main sewer line, and can involve tree roots or branches lodging in pipes and causing clogs. Hydro-jetting is such a powerful process that it can often even eliminate these concerns (know that there are times where even high water pressure won’t be enough here, and a full overhaul might become necessary).

Cons of Hydro-Jetting

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.
