A hydro jet is a pipe that is attached to an endoscope or video camera. It has the ability to clean out clogs in pipes and other small passages where wires, cables, hoses, and other items can’t go. A hydro-jet also gives you the ability to see what it’s doing so you know if there are any blockages or obstructions. This blog post will discuss the hydro jets pros and cons as well as how hydro jetting works!

Hydro jetting is a technique for cleaning clogged sewage pipes and slow-moving drains. Water jetting is a method used by experienced plumbers to remove hard, stubborn clogs using a hydro jetting machine that employs a blast of water at very high pressure up to 4000 psi.

How it works

This hydro jetting machine has a rotating steel tip with small holes that allows the operator to direct water flow and remove blockages. The nozzle is usually attached to a long flexible tube that can be maneuvered through your drain system for faster, more complete results than using chemicals or traditional snaking methods alone.

Why do you need it?

Hydro jetting is ideal for clearing clogs and obstructions that won’t clear with an ordinary line snaking, preventative maintenance, and drains that are overflowing or slow emptying. Whether you have a lot of scales, a lot of root intrusion, a lot of hair, a lot of silt, or a lot of greases and sludge buildup in your house or business, water jetting can get rid of it all and get your drains flowing like new again.

Pros hydro jetting

Hydro jetting is a quick, simple solution for clearing backed-up drains and pipes. The hydro-jet machine uses powerful water jets to break through blockages caused by grease build-up or other materials in your drain system. This method can save you money on repairs that are needed after using chemicals that don’t do the trick alone. It’s also faster than snaking because it blasts away debris at 4000 psi! That means little manual work on the part of the plumber when compared with standard methods like snaking which requires more elbow grease from an operator during the removal of clogs.

Cons of hydro jetting

When it comes to eliminating more major drain clogs, hydro-jetting isn’t as successful as rooter or auger drain cleaning services. For older and weaker pipelines, hydro-jetting can be too much. It won’t clean drain lines that have been clogged by severe damage, such as a bellied line.
