Struggling with a Clogged Drain?
Over time drain flow can slow as debris accumulates in plumbing and creates a clog. Clog development can be unexpected, and often require snaking to remove hair, grease, and soap scum. For more serious clogs, or issues further along in the pipes, snaking may not be enough to restore full flow to your pipes and drain lines. While there is more than one method of clearing out your plumbing, many approaches involve gaining direct access to pipes buried beneath landscaping or within a building’s walls. Before you reach out to a professional to schedule service, you should know that less intensive and destructive methods of clearing clogs exist.
What is Hydro Jetting?
For clogs that resist snaking, hydro jetting provides a much less invasive and chemical-free solution. Hydro jetting involves running pressurized water into your plumbing to force out more serious clogs like those caused by tree root intrusion, hard water calcification, and solidified grease. If you are struggling with a clogged sewer line or storm drain, be sure to ask your plumber about hydro jetting.
3 Benefits of Hydro Jetting
While snaking can sometimes be a successful DIY fix, hydro jetting is a professional cleaning service that guarantees that optimal flow is restored.
1. Unclogs drains by completely cleaning pipes
While snaking can be effective at removing enough of the obstruction to allow most of your water flow to return, hydro jetting blasts the walls of the piping with high-pressure streams of water to completely remove any foreign material to ensure new clogs are unable to form from missed scum and debris.
The result is obstruction-free plumbing that allows for restored water flow and pressure.
2. Cleans pipes and drain lines without harsh chemicals
Using chemicals is often the next step home and property owners take after discovering snaking is ineffective against clogs. Unfortunately, many chemicals are ineffective against plumbing debris and extremely effective at remaining an active contaminant in water.
Hydro jetting is environmentally safe and uses zero harsh chemicals.
3. Provides a non-invasive solution to clogs
Your plumbing is engineered to handle water flow. Hydro jet cleaning is a safe procedure that ensures water flow is returned to your plumbing. Despite being under immense pressure, hydro jet streams can force out otherwise hard-to-remove debris such as mineral deposits and tree roots.
Not only is hydro jetting safe on plumbing, but it also avoids damaging walls and landscaping, which is typically incurred by traditional means of accessing plumbing. Direct access to clogs is not required to remove the blockage.
If your drainage clog requires more than a good snaking to release, hydro jetting is your answer. Hydro jetting is gentle on your pipes and tough on grease and debris all without the use of harsh chemicals. If you are looking for a solution to your drain disaster, hydro jet cleaning ensures not only, removal, but complete cleaning of your plumbing.
