What does water (hydro) jetting do for clogged pipes?

“Hydro Jetting is a non-invasive plumbing solution that clears pipes by removing blockages effectively. It involves the use of high-pressure water jets, which can remove debris, clogs, and buildup from the plumbing system. In the past, rodding was the only solution through which plumbers powered a hole through the accumulation. However, hydro jetting is more prevalent among plumbers now.

Before the process starts, you will need to share your details with a professional company. They will inspect your plumbing system and evaluate the drain issues to understand if hydro jetting is required.

After the inspection, all the plumber has to do is find the ideal spot to insert a hose and begin pumping the water. Since the hose is highly durable, it will be able to shoot about 20 gallons of water a minute or 5,000 psi. This high water pressure will force the material blocking the pipes to flow down the sewer system. Regardless of whether the pipe has grease or mineral build-up, hydro jetting will take care of it.”

Water jetting should only ever be performed by a professional. At such a high pressure, the potential for a severe injury is possible and proper care and handling of the hose must be done. Of course, this high pressure also clears literally any clog that a conventional auger or snake is unable to penetrate. While more expensive, water jetting will remove all debris in your sewer line for maximum water flow.
