What Is Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning?

Published by Adam Bungart

There are many ways to clear drains, pipes, and sewers. Most people opt for chemical agents and hand tools. However, one way to effectively remove debris and blockage from your plumbing system is with high-pressurized water. Also known as hydro jetting or hydro jet cleaning, this method easily breaks apart waste while flushing it away from the water line.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jet machines use a high pressurized hose to shoot water jets down sewer pipes, residential pipes, or drain lines to clear off clogs and debris, like tree roots, fat deposits, and waste. From there, the water pushes the debris down the water or sewer line into the city mains. The force of the water also decreases future blockages.

When is Hydro Jetting Necessary?

Hydro jetting is necessary when alternative unclogging methods fail. For instance, if you previously used chemical agents to clean the pipes, you may need additional hydro jetting support to break up the clog and push the cleaning agent further down the drain or sewer line.

Another benefit of hydro jetting is that it destroys fat deposits and other substances resistant to chemical or traditional methods. It can break up these deposits with more force than tools and cleaning agents can achieve.

Is it Bad for Pipes?

No, hydro jetting is safe for modern residential pipes and drains. For clogged drains, the process serves as an effective, safe option. While it utilizes high water pressure, this is still too weak to break new and maintained piping.

However, if you live in an older home with a poor plumbing system, you should consider alternative methods, like drain snaking, before hydro jetting.
