Could You Use Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is a process that not many homeowners know about. Imagine having a river that’s clogged with garbage and junk, and the only way to clear out that river is with a waterfall of fresh, clear, pressurized water that clears all of the junk away permanently. Well, hydro jetting is a miniature version of that process, located in your drain when a clog is bad enough that no plunging, drain snaking, or anything else can remove it effectively.

Firstly, you need to know that you need professional drain cleaning in Normal, IL. Once that’s figured out, you can call our professional team and ask us about our hydro jetting process. Let’s figure out if it’s right for you.

But first, we need to answer the age-old question of how exactly hydro jetting works, and what the unique benefits and advantages are for such a process.

What Is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is the process of using a rubber hose with a metal auger attached to the bottom. That auger can spray out water in different directions at a high pressure, which means the force can clear away clogs of debris, waste, or hair, where other tools cannot. This pressurized water isn’t some sort of chemical sludge, it’s clear, fresh water, which means its environmentally friendly and won’t cause any problems to the rest of your plumbing system.

So, why get this done in the first place?

The Advantages of Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is a powerful solution to drain clogs. Depending on what’s wrong with your drain, hydro jetting could be the perfect solution. Let’s get into why that is.

  • Power and effectiveness. Hydro jetting is powerful. That pressurized stream of water can just about remove any clogging material in your drain, from a toy, to various types of hair and waste.
  • Cleaning as it goes. A hydro jet doesn’t just remove clogs, it also cleans the lining of your pipe as it goes. You’re not just removing the problem now, you’re also steering clear of problems in the future by keeping your drain in tip-top shape with a thorough rinse from a hydro jet.
  • Detecting additional problems. A hydro jet can’t clear away things that water can’t. Tree root infestations, for instance, are too strong and grounded to be cleared away by hydro jetting. So, sometimes while a hydro jet clears away the problem that was causing you some issues, it can help you locate that there’s something much worse going on and lead you to a new solution.
