What Is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting has been around for quite some time, but if you aren't familiar with it, you may be wondering, "What is hydro jetting?"

In this post, we'll do our best to explain what hydro jetting is and why you might want to consider requesting it for your home or business.

The Basics of Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is one of the best, most thorough ways of cleaning plumbing pipes. If you've ever experienced a clogged drain, then you may have pushed a plumbing snake through your pipes to break apart the clog. While a plumbing snake works in many cases, sometimes you need something more thorough.

This is where a hydro jet comes in handy.

A hydro jet is like a pressure washer for the inside of your plumbing pipes. The water comes out of a nozzle at the end of a hose at extremely high pressures. The water blasts away at debris and buildup inside of the pipes. Additionally, different nozzles can be used to spray in various directions, depending on the need of the job.

Why Hire a Hydro Jetting Service?

First, hydro jetting provides the best drain cleaning possible. While drain snakes clear clogs, they don't actually clean the inside of your pipes. This means there may still be debris in your pipes that can cause clogs. It provides superior cleaning and reduces the risk of repeat clogs.

Secondly, hydro jetting equipment is expensive. It is more economical to hire a plumber to jet your pipes than to purchase your own equipment. Hydro jetting equipment comes in multiple shapes and sizes, but one thing all equipment has in common is it's expensive.

Third, hydro jetting can be dangerous. Not only can you cause physical harm to yourself, but you can also damage your pipes. A professional will know exactly which nozzles to use and what pressures will do the job correctly.

Fourth, it's better for the environment. Many people use harsh chemicals to clean their pipes. These chemicals are not good for the environment.  However, hydro jetting simply uses water at high pressure, which is the most natural choice for drain cleaning.

When To Use Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting is very useful for recurring stubborn clogs. However, it's important that you hire a reputable plumber that knows how to do it safely. They also need to know that jetting can cause further damage in some cases.

Specifically, if tree roots have penetrated your pipes to a large degree, then hydro jetting could cause more damage. That is why it's important for your plumber to first use a camera to visually inspect the inside of your pipes before they attempt to use a hydro jetter.
