Our hydro jetting service uses a hydro jet (high-pressure water) to break up clogs and flush them down as smaller particles down the drain.
Most municipal building codes mandate that drain plumbing increase in diameter as it moves closer to the municipal sewer system. I.E., most kitchen sinks evacuate water with a 1 1⁄2-inch drain pipe, which feeds into a larger 4-inch drain pipe on the main plumbing stack before heading to a septic tank or to the city sewage system. This means that, barring intrusion by tree roots or other debris into buried piping, the vast majority of household drain clogs occur in the smallest-diameter piping, usually in the pop-up or drain trap, where they can be reached easily by a hydro-mechanical device’s water hose.

Benefits of Hydro Jetting
Hydro jetting clears away some pretty heavy duty clogs that may include tree roots or heavy rocks. Hydro jetting can also clear long-term grease issues, other types of oil buildup and gunk to prevent any future clogs. Bacteria can also get washed away in the process, eliminating other problems that can occur from bacterial build up.
Advantages of hydro-jetting are their eco-friendliness (most use only tap water), their ability to dislodge and remove clogs like sand or cat litter that ‘back-fill when using a conventional snake, and their friendliness to plumbing joints. Unlike air-burst cleaners, hydro-mechanical drain cleaners do not pressurize plumbing joints. On some models of hydro-mechanical drain cleaner both hot and cold water can be used, providing added cleaning power for fat, protein, or other easily melting drain clogs.
Because hydro jetting is implemented completely inside the pipes, there is typically no digging that is needed. Making this solution economical and very safe for removing clogged drains. The basic functionality of hydro jetting is relatively simple, but proper use is very important for achieving great results.
