The Benefits of Hydro Jetting

If you’ve never heard the words “hydro jetting” before, we’d like to enlighten you.

Hydro jetting is a fairly new process that many plumbers utilize to remove clogs and clean drains. Before we get into what hydro jetting entails, we’d like to talk about what this new technological process means for you! A clogged drain in Bloomington, IL can spell disaster when preparing for a holiday party this season. It’s incredibly important to know when a plumber can quickly and effectively remove the clog without any damage being done to your pipes. Remember this information when the thought pops up in your mind to use chemical drain cleaners since they’ll most likely do more harm than good.

So, let’s get suited up and ready to discuss the unique benefits of a hydro jet.

Many Solutions, One Problem

Drain clogs are a problem that has perplexed homeowners for years. While frustrating and relatively simple, they can be terribly hard to remove and can cause damage if they’re addressed poorly. While there are drain snakes, plungers, and other types of small solutions for drain clogs—none of them are guaranteed to solve the issue. That’s why a plumber with a high-tech hydro jet can sometimes be your best case for clearing out the worst problems.

The Science of a Hydro Jet

What exactly is a hydro jet? A hydro jet is just a high-pressured hose that will spray water in many different directions in order to thoroughly clean a drain. Since all it sprays is water, there’s no need to worry about harmful chemicals or thick solutions making clogs worse. Also, since the water is incredibly high-pressured, hydro jets are some of the most powerful solutions to drain problems that seem like they’ll never be fixed.

Try Other Solutions First

Hydro jets are high tech and require an experienced plumber to use effectively. So, if you’re dealing with a slow drain and you’re not sure if the clog is that bad, try using a plunger or a snake first. Drain snakes can often clue us in that the clog is much thicker than we thought since a drain won’t be able to force its way through a difficult clog. Hydro jetting is a great solution when all other solutions haven’t worked out.

Thorough Removal

Hydro jets don’t just clear out clogs, they can also flush out debris, destroy tree roots that have infiltrated your piping, and restore your pipes to have the proper water flow required. Plumbers use various different sized nozzles for different pipes, meaning that hydro jetting is a customized solution to your drain problems.
