Tough clogs and buildup don’t stand a chance against the high-pressure hose used in hydro jetting. Just like it sounds, a hose with a special nozzle will send a powerful force of pressurized water through your pipes, clearing out your clogged drain and anything in its way. A plumber will usually create a cleanout, or opening, to allow the clog and buildup to be cleared out from the pipe.
Some of the main benefits of hydro jetting include:
- Eliminates clogs in a flash – With high-pressure water shooting through your pipes, the clogs will be cleared out fast.
- Removes dangerous blocks – The power of the pressurized water can even clear out tree roots and other serious blocks when necessary.
- Versatile solutions for all types of pipes – No matter the type of pipes you have, hydro jetting can get the job done and get it done effectively.
- Clears out pipe walls – Hydro-jetting gets to the root of the problem: grease and pipe wall buildup. It can eliminate minerals, grease, and more!
While hydro jetting is a great option in most cases, it can pack a powerful force. If you have older, more fragile pipes, the water pressure could cause damage in some areas. That is why it is always best to have a professional plumber on the job. They can scope out the state of your pipes and take down the pressure to prevent damage or other issues. If your pipes are too fragile, they can switch over to the good old fashion snaking method for optimal results.
