What Is Hydro Jetting and When Do You Need It?

Maintaining an efficient plumbing system depends upon regular maintenance and prompt resolution of any problems. A common plumbing issue facing many homeowners today is clogged drains - when these tactics don't do the trick, hydro-jetting could be your answer to keep drains clear and running smoothly again. Mr. Rooter Plumbing goes deeper into hydro-jetting to explain its functionality as an option and when this service may help your drains operate as intended.

Understanding Hydro Jetting

Hydro-jetting is an eco-friendly drain cleaning technique used by professional plumbers to clear away stubborn clogs and debris from plumbing pipes, including grease build-up, hair accumulation, soap scum deposits, and tree roots. Utilizing high-pressure water jets allows hydro-jetting operators to blast away obstructions such as grease build-up, hair accumulations, soap scum deposits, or tree roots with ease - without resorting to harsh chemicals which could otherwise wreak havoc with both your plumbing system and environment.

Hydro-Jetting Works

Hydro-jetting uses a specialized machine that pumps high-pressured water - typically between 3,000 to 8,000 PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) - into your plumbing system at extremely high pressures, using an adjustable nozzle that directs it through its concentrated high-velocity stream into your pipes and out through another opening at high velocity, breaking apart even stubborn blockages to flush them away and flush your plumbing.

Professional Plumbers

Professional plumbers have the training and equipment to operate hydro-jetting safely and effectively, making calling in an experienced licensed plumber essential when experiencing persistent clogs or slow drains. Without professional training and experience in operating hydro-jetting equipment safely and effectively, attempts may cause irreparable damage to pipes or even cause injuries, so it's wise to leave this task up to a professional instead of doing it alone.

When Do You Require Hydro-Jetting Services?

Now that we understand what hydro-jetting is and its workings let's investigate when and why this plumbing service might come in handy:

  • Frequent Clogs: Recurring drain clogs could indicate more serious plumbing system issues; hydro-jetting may help clear away persistent blockages to stop their reappearance and restore normal functioning of your plumbing.
  • Hydro-Jetting Can Fix Slow Drains: Slow drains may indicate an obstruction in your plumbing. Hydro-jetting is an efficient and affordable way to quickly restore proper flow by breaking up and flushing away accumulated debris from pipes and drains.
  • Foul Odors: Drain odors may indicate trapped organic material or sewage build-up in your pipes, so hydro-jetting offers an efficient and inexpensive solution to eliminating them by thoroughly cleansing your system's pipes.
  • Tree Root Infiltration: Tree roots can enter sewer lines through cracks in pavement or holes drilled by construction work and cause significant blockages and damage, creating significant blockages or jamming up pipes and leading to significant blockages or obstruction. Hydro-jetting has proven highly successful at cutting through roots and clearing pipes of obstruction.
  • Routine Maintenance: Many homeowners opt for regular hydro-jetting as a preventive measure. Scheduling periodic hydro-jetting services can keep their plumbing system in great condition, decreasing the chances of unexpected clogs or costly repairs.

Benefits of Hydro-Jetting

Now that we understand when hydro-jetting might come in handy let's go over some key benefits associated with it:

  • Hydro-Jetting Is One Of the Most Efficient Drain Cleaning Methods Available: Hydro-jetting is one of the most thorough drain cleaning techniques, clearing clogs, built-up residue, and mineral deposits accumulated over time - leaving your pipes brand new!
  • Eco-Friendly: Hydro-jetting's non-chemical cleaning approach makes it an eco-friendly alternative for drain maintenance, helping minimize chemical pollution of local water supplies and protecting local ecosystems from chemical dumping.
  • Hydro-Jetting Offers Long-Lasting Results: Hydro-jetting can offer long-term relief versus other methods that only temporarily clear away debris, meaning fewer callouts to plumbers in the future.
  • Preventative Maintenance: Hydro-jetting can provide preventative maintenance that could save money over the long haul by helping avoid clogs in your plumbing system. As previously discussed, hydro-jetting offers proactive protection that could stop costly breakdowns before they happen - potentially saving time and money!
