When you’re needing drain cleaning services and a clog or block is particularly advanced, it may be better to consider hydro jetting to clear out the line! Hydro jet drain cleaning services are a good option for cases where build up is more layered or when root invasion has infiltrated your pipes or sewer lines. At times, an auger or plumber’s snake won’t do the job as well as a high pressurized hose that can scour the problem away with its high pressurized water blast!

How it Works
Blockages or clogs in pipes can cause a variety of difficulties in your home from poor drain performance to contaminated water. When you’re suspecting that your drain system has been acting up, it’s best to address the problem from the onset before it gets worse or affects other home systems. Hydro jetting is usually used for cases of root invasion or drain problems that have been reoccurring, thereby signaling a more advanced problem.
What happens first upon site arrival is a plumbing inspection of your pipes in order to best localize the problem areas so clean out can begin. The plumber will then access a cleanout area or an opening that will allow for the plumber to gain access to the pipes and begin the process of cleaning. The hydro jet hose is connected to a water tank that has the capabilities of the water pressure being altered in compliance to different types of pipes and how much water pressure they can withstand. Adjustments can go to 5,000 psi or higher and can send out as much as 20 gallons of water a minute!
A hydro jet has a specialized metal nozzle or head that is attached to a flexible hose that allows for easy travel through the pipe’s various angles and bends. There are a few different areas on the head where water blasts out, one such area is directly in front of its path and two other areas are openings in the backsides that scour down clogs from behind on either side of the hose with water jetting out at an angle. This method clears out the center path of blockage to allow for the hose to make its way through the pipeline, while also following up on the edges or sides of the clog, so they too can loosen and wash away. The majority of this method incorporates gravity to pull the wastewater naturally out of the line. Basically, as the hose moves its way upstream, the clogs clear out downstream.
Benefits of Hydro Jetting
- Eliminates Clogs Quickly: high pressurized water scours away tough clogs due to its forceful impact so removal is relatively fast.
- Removes Serious Intrusions: serious blocks such as tree root intrusions are able to be removed.
- *Works on Most Pipes: no matter the type of pipe you have, from hydro jetting sewer lines to other pipelines, it can be used as an effective solution to removal.
- Fixes a Variety of Issues: no matter the problem, from stubborn grease to debris or mineral buildup, the power of pressurized water can loosen and rid your line of them all!
*Keep in mind that if you have older pipes, the high pressurized water can pack quite the punch and potentially damage certain areas. That’s why it’s best to rely on the expertise of a professional plumber to know when to adjust the water pressure or incorporate another method of clog removal for optimal results. If ultimately your pipe is too aged or damaged for hydro jetting, sewer line repair may be necessary.
With plumbing clogs and blockages, methods of removal can vary from simplicity to severity. It can be particularly confusing locating the origin of blocks or gauging if there is a larger underlying issue that can’t be directly seen or reached.
