Is Hydro-Jetting Really the Best Way to Clean Drains?

hydro-jettingHydro-jetting is often praised as one of the best methods for cleaning drains. Essentially, a hydro-jet is a line with a jet at the end. The jet sprays highly pressurized water in several angles to wash out the inside of pipes.

Your alternatives are drain cleaners, which can be harmful to the pipes, slow, and only effective in a small area. There are also drain snakes, which are effective at breaking up a clog but really have nothing to do with “cleaning.” When a professional plumber uses these tactics, it’s often for a strategic purpose.

But there’s more to hydro-jetting than simply “being better” than drain cleaners and drain snakes. We’ll go over all the details below.

It’s Natural and Better for the Environment

What could be more natural than hot water? Hydro-jetting is so effective because it relies on nothing more than hot, highly pressurized water to do the job.

Compare that to chemical drain cleaners. These chemicals can be very effective at breaking up clogs—so effective that they can actually eat away at the piping itself. After the chemicals do the work of breaking up the clog, running water into the drain will flush those chemicals into the sewage system and eventually make its way to the water treatment facilities.

Effective and Thorough

Another part of what makes hydro-jetting great is that it’s able to do a very thorough job. Currently, there’s really nothing quite like a hydro-jet in its ability to hose off the interior of the pipe. Any organic grease or sludge build up on the pipe walls will be cleared away, as if starting from new. In fact, annual drain cleaning services with a hydro-jet can ensure that your pipes never become clogged in the first place.

Not only that, but the power of the jet makes it ideal for blasting away even the most stubborn clogs. Whether it’s chunks of food waste, chunks of garbage, or invasive tree roots, hydro-jetting will be enough to take care of the issue.

Plus, hydro-jet lines are available in several hundred feet of length. Your drain cleaning specialist in Camarillo, CA will be able to feed the hydro jet through the entire system, not just the local drain.

Works With Nearly Any Kind of Drain

Hydro-jetting is ideal for both residential and commercial jobs. Depending on when the home or commercial property was established, however, the methods of piping put in place may vary greatly. It doesn’t matter when hydro-jetting because it can clean a wide range of piping materials, such as:

  • Clay
  • Iron
  • PVC
  • Steel
  • Cement

Necessary for Renovations

Before any kind of pipe relining, pipe bursting, or pipe repair can take place, those pipes must be clean and free of debris. Hydro-jetting is the necessary first step in getting those pipes ready for servicing. There’s no method that’s more direct and effective than hydro-jetting.
