What Is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is a drain and sewer cleaning method that uses jets of high-pressure water to clear pipe blockages and remove debris from pipe walls.

Due to the amount of pressure used during hydro jetting, a video camera inspection is performed first to find the blockage and assess the condition of the pipes. Hydro jetting on deteriorated pipes creates even more problems.

Drain Snaking vs. Hydro Jetting

Drain snaking and hydro jetting both clear blockages in your home’s pipes. There are some notable differences, however. Drain snaking breaks up clogs with a flexible cable. This method doesn’t scrape or clean a sewer line like hydro jetting but is safer for weak pipes.

Hydro jetting thoroughly flushes a pipe clean of all debris and residue but isn’t recommended for fragile pipes.
