Clogged drains are one of the most common plumbing problems homeowners face. Not only are they inconvenient, but they can also be damaging. While some clogs can easily be cleared with a plunger or snake, others can be quite difficult.

This is where hydro-jetting comes in.

What Is Hydro-Jetting?

Hydro-jetting is a cleaning method that relies on high-pressure water to remove stubborn debris from sewers, pipes, and drains. Think of it as pressure-washing for your plumbing. It’s so effective that it can clear tree roots from your pipes, but also safe enough that it won’t damage them.

When you contact your plumber, they’ll typically conduct a video inspection first to determine the extent of the backup. Then, they adjust the water pressure and flow rate to effectively clear the clog. A hose and nozzle attached to our truck then shoots out high-pressure water to remove grease, mineral buildup, hair, and more from your pipes.

Common Reasons To Use Hydro-Jetting?

Hydro-jetting is ideal when snaking isn’t enough because the hose and nozzle can travel deep into your pipes. Hydro-jetting works particularly well for deep and stubborn clogs in the sewer line, especially when grease, scale, and other debris are causing recurring plumbing issues.

It’s also great when tree roots have infiltrated your sewer lines. It simply loosens up the roots and washes them out.

Another instance when hydro-jetting is useful is before a trenchless sewer repair. This is when we use an epoxy lining to repair damaged lines. If debris is in the line, the new lining will not adhere properly, which is why hydro-jetting is useful.
