Clogged drains and sewers are common for homeowners everywhere. Debris going down the drain can get stuck or build up until the flow of water is slow or completely blocked. There are many fixes for blocked drains and sewers, but none are better than hydro jetting. In this post, we’ll define hydro jetting before we highlight its top advantages.
What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting blasts away blockages that have built up in pipes using a high-pressure hose. A video snake is sent in before any water spraying to identify the problem area and make sure there are not busted pipes. Then the spraying begins. When your pipes are clear, we will do another check with the video snake and run some water to see how it works in action.
Now let’s check out the top three benefits of this process below.
Hydro Jetting Gets the Job Done
Snaking and other methods are good at correcting one clog, but usually lead to another clog happening down the line. Hydro jetting clears the pipes of ALL blockages and build up completely solving the immediate problem and giving you cleared out pipes to prevent future clogs — hydro jetting plans for the future.
Hydro jetting ends up costing more upfront than snaking or other anti-clog practices. But this technique will end up saving you money down the line. When you choose hydro jetting, you proactively clear the pipes of the debris that will lead to future issues. This result means you will need less service in the future. Also, hydro jetting is a quick procedure so you can save money in paying your plumber by the time they spend with you.
Be an Environmentally-Friendly with Hydro Jetting
The amount of water used in hydro jetting is high, but that water ends up going down the drain and being returned to your community’s water recycling program. Hydro jetting does not involve any chemicals that could enter the water table. This is a solid practice that won’t impact local water sources such as lakes, ponds, or rivers.
