If you don’t know what hydrojetting is, you’re missing out on a great technology that has revolutionized the plumbing world! Hydrojetting uses extremely high pressurized water to clean drain pipes from grease and residue. It gets rid of clogged pipes, ensuring that you avoid a contaminated water supply, problematic water flow, and a multitude of other problems that can result from clogged pipes.
There are many other methods plumbers use to get rid of clogged pipes and drains, but we’ve come to find that hydrojetting is one of the best options out there. Here’s why:
It doesn’t use any chemicals whatsoever—just the sheer force of the water blasts away debris like hair, soap residue, and grease. Thus, it is more eco-friendly than other options involving chemicals.
It provides a complete cleanse—hydrojetting’s counterparts (rodding or using a plumbing snake) create a path through the pipe so water can flow again. They don’t perform a full clean. Often, they leave behind residue which leads to more clogs later on. Hydrojetting fully removes debris from the pipe. Hydrojetting cleans, not just unclogs.
It lasts longer than other options—as mentioned, hydrojetting removes much more debris than the other options can. It actually lasts up to four times as long as a simple rodding can! This reduces the need for more service calls, saving you money in the long run.
When you weigh hydrojetting against other options to help you fix clogged pipes, you can see that hydrojetting comes out on top. One important thing to remember is that not all clogged pipes are fit for the hydrojetting procedure. If your pipes are old and fragile, they may not be able to withstand the pressures of hydrojetting, and using a snake is a better alternative. In certain cases involving tree roots, hydrojetting can exacerbate the problem. Make sure you have a plumber properly assess your situation so you can make sure you are getting the solution that’s right for you!
