Clogged and blocked drains are messy, smelly, frustrating problems that every homeowner has encountered at one time or another. In the past, when you've experienced this issue, you likely reached for an auger or called on a plumbing service to snake your drain. While these options may offer a quick fix, they are often no more than band-aids for deeper, more extensive issues. For this reason, hydro jetting is typically a far better option, offering a long-term solution.
What Is Hydro Jetting?
It's necessary to keep your sewer line's main drain clean and free of clogs with regular upkeep which often calls for invasive procedures. This essential maintenance clears debris and prevents obstructions caused by hair, grease, and tree roots. Hydro jetting is an effective method of accomplishing this.
When performing hydro jetting, your plumber sends extremely forceful streams of water through your sewer line to effect this cleaning. This high water pressure may range from 3,000 to 8,000 PSI. Depending upon the extent of your sewer line, these plumes of cleansing water jets can reach up to 300 feet in your plumbing.
Unlike snaking a drain with an auger, hydro jetting can clear the entire circumference of your pipes and reach much further into your lines. This powerful technique does more than remove clogs. It also reduces the natural grease and mineral build-up that forms alone the inside of your sewer lines over time. This provides you with a far more effective clean and a longer lasting solution.
Is Hydro Jetting Right For You?
If your pipes frequently drain slowly or you've had to have them snaked a time or two in the past, you can likely benefit from hydro jetting. Not all pipes are suitable for hydro jetting, since the powerful water pressure may damage old, fragile piping. Fortunately, our professionals can examine your pipes and sewer line to assess their strength and determine whether this method is appropriate for your home.
