The Pros and Cons of Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting (high-pressure water jetting) services are fast, affordable, and do an excellent job of clearing drain and sewer lines of clogs and obstructions. However, just like with any other type of plumbing service, hydro-jetting is not without its pros and cons. So let’s talk about what hydro-jetting is and the pros and cons of the service in a little more detail.

What is Hydro-Jetting?

Hydro-jetting (high-pressure water jetting) cleans drain and sewer lines from clogs and obstructions using pressurized water. Plumbers often perform hydro-jetting procedures during drain cleaning jobs and before they do any sewer repair or replacement.

To more easily understand hydro-jetting, we can compare it to pressure washing. Both tools use water under high pressure to clean messes and clear debris. However, hydro-jetting machines utilize water under much, much greater pressure than the pressure washers you can rent/purchase at your local hardware store.

The Pros of Hydro-Jetting (High-Pressure Water Jetting)

The pros of hydro-jetting services include:

  • Hydro-jetting clears stubborn clogs with just water.
  • Hydro-jetting can be done to both commercial and residential drain lines.
  • It can also cut through tree roots that have invaded your sewer line.
  • Hydro-jetting is environmentally safe and green.
  • High-pressure water jetting services will clear the entire drain line rather than just a tiny section of it (rooter services will only clear an opening as large as the diameter of the rooter augur)

The Cons of Hydro-Jetting

The cons of hydro-jetting services include:

  • Hydro-jetting can be less effective at removing extra serious drain obstructions than rooter or auger drain cleaning services.
  • Hydro-jetting can be too much for older and weaker pipelines to handle
  • It can’t help clear drain lines obstructed by severe damage like a bellied line.
