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 what the pros and cons of the service are in a little more detail.
What is Hydro-Jetting?
Hydro-jetting (high pressure water jetting) is a method of 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 kind of 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 pressures 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
