What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting, also known as water jetting or hydro-jetting, is a sophisticated plumbing technique that employs a powerful stream of water to clean and clear pipes, drains, and sewer lines. Unlike traditional methods that rely on mechanical devices or chemical solutions, hydro jetting utilizes water pressure of up to 4,000 pounds per square inch (psi) to dislodge obstructions, including grease, scale, tree roots, and other debris. This process not only eliminates existing blockages but also prevents future buildup, ensuring long-term plumbing health.

How Does Hydro Jetting Work?

Hydro jetting involves the use of a specialized nozzle attached to a high-pressure hose, which is connected to a pump capable of generating significant water pressure. The nozzle is inserted into the affected pipe or drain, and water is expelled at high velocity, effectively scouring the interior surfaces and flushing out any obstructions. The nozzle’s design typically includes forward and backward-facing jets, ensuring thorough cleaning of the pipe walls and dislodging debris from all angles. Additionally, some hydro jetting systems may incorporate rotating nozzles or specialized attachments to target specific types of buildup or blockages.

Benefits of Hydro Jetting:

  • Comprehensive Cleaning
  • Preventative Maintenance
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Cost-Effective
  • Versatility

When to Consider Hydro Jetting:

  • Stubborn clogs that resist traditional methods
  • Slow drainage or backups in sinks, showers, or toilets
  • Foul odors emanating from drains or sewer lines
  • Tree root intrusion or mineral buildup in pipes
  • Routine maintenance to prevent future plumbing problems
