If you have slow draining sinks, showers, or tubs, this may be due to an obstruction in your plumbing system. These can be difficult to work around and correct. Using corrosive drain cleaning products can be risky and may cause more damage, snaking your drain is only applicable if you can reach the obstruction, and going in directly to the source of the obstruction to remove it can be difficult.

Hydro jetting provides an affordable and simple solution to help free obstructions in your plumbing system. Our team proudly provides affordable plumbing services, including hydro jetting to the homes and businesses in the Southeast, Texas area. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment with our team.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro Jetting is a non-invasive plumbing solution that clears pipes by removing blockages effectively. It involves the use of high-pressure water jets, which can remove debris, clogs, and buildup from the plumbing system. In the past, rodding was the only solution through which plumbers powered a hole through the accumulation. However, hydro jetting is more prevalent among plumbers now.

Before the process starts, you will need to share your details with a professional company. They will inspect your plumbing system and evaluate the drain issues to understand if hydro jetting is required.

After the inspection, all the plumber has to do is find the ideal spot to insert a hose and begin pumping the water. Since the hose is highly durable, it will be able to shoot about 20 gallons of water a minute or 5,000 psi. This high water pressure will force the material blocking the pipes to flow down the sewer system. Regardless of whether the pipe has grease or mineral build-up, hydro jetting will take care of it.

Other alternatives include using tools like plungers and plumbing snakes, which are not as safe as hydro jetting. These tools don’t prevent blockages in the future but only temporarily release clogs. They push the waste deeper into the plumbing lines, making the issue even worse.

When Is It Needed?

Plumbers prefer hydro jetting when the water system is impaired with severe clogs that keep recurring. The interior of pipes often scales up with debris, grease, and mineral buildup, which causes clogging and slow draining. When this issue escalates, it can result in sewer backups. So if the plumbing system blocks up, dirty water may make its way into your home.

Hydro jetting solves such drain issues by pumping high-pressure water in the pipes. The jet works with gravity and forces the pipes to clear up.

An indicator that you may need hydro jetting includes a smelly kitchen sink that repetitively clogs up. A plumber can help eradicate the obstructions in your pipes and allow you to live peacefully.

What Can You Remove With Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting can remove all kinds of debris in pipes, including:

  • Hair clogs
  • Mineral deposits
  • Grease and fat deposits
  • Food deposits
  • Silt
  • Sand
  • Tree roots (in some cases)
