Hydro Jetting Explained

Hydro Jetting Explained

Your drains are a vital part of your plumbing and are important to the health of your plumbing network. When your drains are affected, your plumbing will follow suit. Unfortunately, clogs and other backups can interfere with proper plumbing functions. Blockages can prevent your plumbing from washing away waste and can stop drains in their tracks.

Even though a plunger may sometimes resolve your plumbing problem momentarily, the typical homeowner’s toolbox is relatively ill-equipped to deal with a major clog. While we recommend trying your traditional plumbing plunger initially, if you experience consecutive clogs or you're unable to relieve your blockage, hydrojetting is your solution. This is where modern plumbing techniques swoop in to save the day.

What is Hydrojetting?

Hydrojetting clears away clogs using a highly pressurized hose that will blast away any accumulated dirt, grime, and grease sitting within your pipes. This technique is ironclad, and it will destroy anything in its path, as it releases water at 20,000 psi—that’s a lot of pressure. To give you some perspective, a standard pressure washer that cleans your driveway offers only 10% of that power. So, hydrojetting will clear your pipes of any obstruction, you can be sure of that!

The incredible amount of power behind hydrojetting not only clears away clogs but also destroys limescale deposits and build-up from hard water. Mineral buildup can constrict pipes and make them more prone to clogs, but hydrojetting can set your pipes up for future success by clearing your system.

What Can Hydrojetting Do?

With an immense amount of water pressure, a hydrojetter requires precise operation in capable hands. It’s best to pair hydrojetting with a video drain inspection, so it is apparent exactly how deep your clog is located. That way, we can clear it efficiently and effectively. You won’t have to worry about plumbing damages.

As you may be aware, the same cannot be said about other common drain clearing methods. Home remedies, such as store-bought drain cleaners are toxic and can cause corrosion and pipe deterioration. These abrasive solutions sound too good to be true because they are. Your plumbing is not the only thing at risk when you open a container of chemical drain cleaner—your indoor air quality is as well. These chemicals become airborne and can severely affect your health. Additionally, cleaning products are responsible for thousands of poisonings every single year in the United States. With their brightly colored packaging, these products pose a particular risk to kids. Make sure if you have these solutions in your home, they are stored out of reach.

In addition to a health hazard, these products will eat through some of your clog; however, the likelihood of complete removal is low. Yet, the chances of plumbing harm is high. These chemicals can cause your plumbing to warp, especially in older metal pipes, which can lead to leaks.

Lastly, your municipal sewer treatment plant is simply ill-equipped to handle these dangerous chemicals. Their solution: to dilute the chemicals. Yet, we don’t understand the full data on the potential consequences of this tactic. From water supply to local wildlife, there may be detrimental effects.

With professional hydrojetting, which uses 100% water to get the job done, you eliminate this concern. For your clog removal, hydrojetting is your eco-friendly solution. Not to mention, your pipes will last a lot longer.
