hydro jetting vs. snaking

what is hydro jetting?

A hydro-jet is a hose connected to a machine that pressurizes water and sends a powerful stream shooting out of a specialized nozzle at up to 60,000 psi. This is used to clear out grease, hair, soap scum, mineral buildup, and other debris from the drain. A powerful enough hydro-jet can even break up tree roots that have invaded the pipe. Submit a service request today.

what is snaking?

Also referred to as sewer snakes or plumbing augers, plumbing snakes are metal tubes through which a cable runs. At one end of the cable, either a blade or a corkscrew auger is attached. At the other end, there is a hand crank that is used to extend and retract the cable. Schedule drain clog service today.

We offer 24-hour emergency services for residential properties and commercial properties.


When you call A-1 Septic Tank Service, you’ll speak to a live person who will explain the pricing for your emergency and the necessary work that will be performed. Emergency service is more expensive, so we’ll tell you if the work you need can wait for an appointment during our regular business hours. Pricing for emergency septic tank services is determined by the scope of the job, the time of day, and the day of the week.


We begin by evaluating your emergency and dispatching our team to your property. Once we’ve diagnosed the problem, we’ll provide you with quick and efficient repairs, making sure to clean up any waste that has accumulated.
