Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is a method plumbers use to clear clogs and debris buildup in pipes. It works by sending a high-pressure stream of water through the pipes to break up and flush away the blockage. Here’s a breakdown of the process:
  1. Preparation: The technician will first access the drain line. This might involve removing a cleanout plug, which is a special access point in the drain system.

  2. Inspection (Optional): In some cases, the plumber may use a video camera to inspect the drain line and locate the exact blockage. This helps them determine the best course of action and ensure they target the jet stream accurately.

  3. Hydro Jetting: The plumber inserts a special hose with a nozzle into the drain line. The hose is connected to a machine that pumps water at high pressure, typically ranging from 1500 psi to 5000 psi.

  4. Clearing the Blockage: The high-pressure water blasts away the clog and flushes it down the drain line. The jet stream can also remove grease, soap scum, and mineral buildup that can contribute to future clogs.

  5. Cleaning Up: Once the clog is cleared, the plumber will flush the drain line with clean water to remove any debris that may be lingering.

Here are some benefits of hydro jetting:

  • Effective: It can clear tough clogs that other methods, like drain snaking, cannot.
  • Safe: It is a safe and environmentally friendly way to clean drains, as it does not involve harsh chemicals.
  • Thorough: It cleans the entire pipe wall, not just the center, which can help prevent future clogs.
  • Preventative: It can help to prevent future clogs by removing buildup that can contribute to clogs over time.

Overall, hydro jetting is a powerful and effective way to clear clogged drains. If you are experiencing frequent drain problems, hydro jetting may be a good option to consider.
