The Pros and Cons of Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting (high pressure water jetting) services are fast, affordable, and do a wonderful 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. 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) is cleaning out 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 that is under much, much greater pressure than the pressure washers that 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 small 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 that have been obstructed by serious damage like a bellied line.
