What is water jetting and how is it used to remove clogged sewer lines

“What’s the absolute worst thing you can hear regarding your home? A clogged sewer line is right up there. Inconvenient, gross, and often expensive – when you have a clog in your sewer line, it’s time to call the professionals. Before you find yourself in this predicament, it’s good to know what your options are for repairing a clogged sewer line. Hydro jetting is a popular method for clearing sewer lines due to its effectiveness and versatility.

Hydro Jetting: The Basics

Hydro jetting is really pretty simple: an extremely high pressure hose with a specially made nozzle that hooks to sewer drains, is turned on to 1,500 to 4,000 pounds per minute, or 7,000 to 60,000 PSI, according to the pipes and severity of the clog. The hose then blasts the clog out, allowing it to disperse and drain properly. While this may seem like a simple enough procedure, it can damage your pipes, or make clogs worse when done by amateur or unskilled plumbers.”

Hydro jetting (also called water jetting) can be a great way to remove a pesky sewer line clog when traditional methods fail. Depending on the clog itself, a snake might not be able to push out the debris or sometimes even go right through it. Using a high-pressure blast of water will obliterate the clog and have your line free and clear within minutes. In fact, the set up of the machine usually takes longer than the process itself!
