A lot of people have recently asked us about hydro jetting, and this is primarily because hydro jetting is relatively new and people simply aren’t sure if they think they need this service or not. So to help you better understand hydro jetting better, we’ve compiled this list of FAQs that we’re sure will provide you with an added source of information about this innovative plumbing technology!
What Exactly Is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is a comprehensive drain cleaning solution that goes a step further when it comes to eliminating serious clogs, and hydro jetting is also a very effective sewer cleaning method as well.
The process of hydro jetting entails a source of very high-pressured water that shoots down your pipes and eliminates clogs for good, and because this plumbing technology is inherently dangerous it’s never a DIY type of plumbing solution.
Although hydro jetting was technically invented all the way back in the 1950s, it has become much more popular in recent years due to technological improvements and an overall training increase throughout the entire plumbing industry.
How Exactly Does Hydro Jetting Work?
Our plumbing specialists will utilize a hydro jet system, which entails a large water tank, a state-of-the-art pressurizing system and a unique type of hose and nozzle that works to effectively clear out any buildup that’s blocking your sewer or drain lines.
What happens is our plumber will put the hose into your piping system through the cleanout mechanism, and then we’ll turn the hydro jet on. When the hydro jet system is enacted, it will shoot out high-pressure water through the drain. This intense water pressure will thoroughly clear out all sorts of unwanted minerals, grease, hair and other types of buildup. Hydro jetting has also been known to be an effective solution for tree root infiltration issues that tend to cause really serious piping problems.
How Do I Know When I Need Hydro Jetting?
If your toilet, sink, shower or other plumbing fixtures are draining much too slowly on a consistent basis, then it’s a clear warning sign that you’re dealing with a rather serious issue within your property’s piping system.
A lot of people will call us and let us know that they’re experiencing backups in multiple drains throughout their home or business, which is a good indication that hydro jetting is needed. Recurring drain problems are also another common warning sign that a property could benefit from a hydro jetting service.
What Is The Difference Between Hydro Jetting And Snake Drain Cleaning?
Snake drain cleaning will utilize a very long cable made of plastic or metal that features small blades on it. This tool, which is also referred to as an auger, can sometimes clear out clogs that are close to the drain on its own. However when clog is deep down in the drain, we’ll utilize snake drain cleaning that will force the cable down your drain until it gets to the clog’s source and eliminates it.
Hydro jetting utilizes high-pressure water to eliminate drain clogs as opposed to the long cable in snake drain cleaning. Many people will be capable of doing a DIY snake drain cleaning, even though it’s still ill-advised. But only professional plumbers can perform a hydro jetting service for a whole variety of safety concerns.
Hydro jetting ends up being a much more effective drain cleaning method when it comes to eliminating persistent clogs that don’t seem to go away, and this is primarily because hydro jetting will affect all of your property’s drains at once and not just one drain. This makes it a better solution for more serious plumbing issues, and hydro jetting provides more permanent fixes as compared to snake drain cleaning.
What Are The Benefits Associated With Hydro Jetting?
The high-pressure water associated with hydro jetting makes this plumbing service very efficient when it comes to fully eliminating serious clogs. Hydro jetting is also an effective plumbing solution for clearing out very large clogs and even tree root infiltration that can wreck havoc on your plumbing system.
Hydro jetting also fully eliminates very pesky types of buildup, including grease, hair, minerals and literally every other type of buildup imaginable. This will ensure that your property’s pipes are much less susceptible to experiencing clogs into the future.
