What is hydro jetting?

Hydro jetting is a safe and efficient way to clear clogged drains and sewer lines. Hydro jet cleaning is a method of cleaning with high-pressure streams of water to remove buildup and debris in tanks and lines.

Using chemical drain cleaners is not safe and rarely breaks through a blockage. When a chemical drain cleaner sits in the pipe, it causes a cement-like blockage and becomes more costly to fix.

Chemical drain cleaners are also hazardous to the technician that has to remove the blockage with chemical drain cleaner in it.

Cable machines are used to remove tree roots and break through solid obstructions. Cable machines basically puncture a hole through the clog to restore flow.

Hydro jetting removes the clog and cleans the pipe to prevent it from clogging so quickly. Cable machines are not as effective on grease. Cable machines will bore holes through sludge but they can’t clean and push the debris out of pipes as effectively as a hydro jet machine.

Regular hydro jetting keeps lines flowing

Some businesses may only require annual jetting, while other businesses need monthly or quarterly jetting to keep the lines flowing.

Restaurants and other commercial businesses like dry cleaners, usually require frequent high-pressure hydro jetting. Jetting cleans the grease buildup, mineral deposits, and other debris (dryer lint) that accumulate in the lines.

Downtime in any industry means money lost and possibly disappointed customers. Jetting means cleaner pipes, fewer service calls, less downtime, and overall cost savings.
