Drain clogs are a common household problem, and hydro-jetting is the best way to get rid of them. Hydro-Jetting consists of a high-pressure hose with a specialized nozzle connected to a machine that pressurizes the water, producing a powerful stream that clears the drain. Hydro-Jetting is usually done through a clean-out, which is an opening that allows plumbers to clean out clogs.

A plumbing snake is ideal for minor clogs, but it won’t work on more serious blockages.

The water is forced down the drain, where it pushes grease, mineral build-up, hair, and other debris through the drain. With a powerful enough Hydro-Jet, tree roots can also be broken up.

Are you thinking of doing this yourself? Well, you really should not try to do this without knowing the risks. If you are going to have a clog, it is usually caused by grease or soap that has not been washed away after using the kitchen sink or toilet. It is best left up to professional plumbers and technicians with training in Hydro-Jetting.

Otherwise, you could cause damage to your home plumbing system.

A professional plumber will insert a special hose and cleaning head that can deliver over 7,000 PSI and up to 60,000 PSI of pressure to the line. Hydro-Jetting works by blasting away the clog with a high-pressure stream of water, similar to using a fire hose.

On the end of the hydro-jet is a nozzle that directs water towards the walls of the drain line, blasting away debris and clogs. So, the front of the hose blasts the debris, while the other parts of the nozzle produce a back spray of water, which actually helps to catch and pull the debris out of the pipe.

Once the plumber finishes Hydro-Jetting, they will remove the hose from your home plumbing system to prevent any further damage.

Hydro-Jetting is a powerful solution to unclogging your drain.

In addition to unclogging your drains, it will power wash the inside of your plumbing pipes. This will help increase the inside diameter of the pipe. In turn, this will increase the flow of water and make it easier to drain your sink.

Hydro-Jetting is a long-lasting solution, because once the pipes are cleared of debris, they will stay clear for years!
