A well-functioning drainage system is essential to the smooth running of your home. We all know how frustrating it can be when plungers, store-bought drain snakes, and rounds of liquid drain cleaner don’t work (of course, you probably shouldn’t use even be using liquid drain cleaners). That’s why your plumber may recommend hydro jetting: the premier solution for clogged drainage systems and pipe maintenance.
Not only is hydro jetting great for current drainage issues, but it’s also effective preventative maintenance for your drainage system. Hydro jetting as preventative maintenance saves you money and gives you peace of mind.
So, what is hydro jetting, and is it the right choice for you? Discover everything there is to know about hydro jetting and why it’s a valuable service for your home drainage system!
How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
Hydro jetting works by using a special hose and jet nozzle to dismantle all debris and clogs with high-velocity water. This highly pressurized water is safe and environmentally friendly, using no caustic chemicals. Once an expert plumber determines your system needs hydro jetting, they will inspect the pipes, making careful note of areas of heavy build-up as well as the source of the clog.
From there, the plumber will drop the hose into the pipes and turn on the hydro jetting system. The water pressure from hydro jetting can be up to 5,000 PSI, so it’s effective at removing any kind of debris, soap scum, oil, hair, and more. The plumber will adjust the PSI based on your pipes, so they won’t be damaged in the process. Then, all it takes is gravity to flush the debris out of the drainage system and the clog will disappear, leaving behind clear and uncluttered pipes for months to come.
What Problems Does Hydro Jetting Solve?
When you call a plumber for a clogged drain, they may recommend hydro jetting. So, how do you know if you really need it? Well, Bacon’s plumbers are always honest—we would never pressure you into a service you don’t need. Your plumber may recommend this service if:
- Your plumbing system backs up frequently
- You have a slow-running drain or multiple slow-running drains
- There is excess standing water in your tub or sink
- Unpleasant smells are coming from your kitchen drain
- Your pipes are making gurgling noises
If you’ve noticed any of these issues, give us a call to ask about our services! Hydro jetting clears all types of debris like hair, silt, mineral deposits, food deposits, and even tree roots. Since the PSI of the machine is so high, hydro jetting can remove anything from invasive plant material to stubborn build-ups of minerals that can lead to sewer line clogs.
What Are The Benefits Of Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is cost-effective and the safest method not only for you and your family but for your pipes too. Since hydro jetting is performed by a professional and is location-specific, it’s a guaranteed, mess-free way to unclog drains. The hose’s flexibility means it won’t damage your pipes and can be used in systems of any size or complexity. Plus, you won’t have to worry about chemicals corroding your plumbing system or posing a health risk to your family.
Hydro jetting is cost-effective because you won’t have to continually sink money into less effective drain clearing methods. Not only is hydro jetting useful for specific clogs, but it’s also a great way to prevent expensive repiping and sewer line replacements in the future. Our experts at Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric recommend hydro jetting once a year to keep your drainage system in tip-top shape.
What’s The Difference Between Hydro Jetting And Snaking A Drain?
Hydro jetting and snaking a drain are often confused since they are both common methods plumbers use to unclog drains. Snaking a drain is effective for small clogs, like the ones usually found in sinks. Hydro jetting is more powerful and more comprehensive, since it scours the pipes, removing not just debris but also scale buildup, mineral deposits, and greasy residues.
Snaking a drain is often just a quick fix, and because it doesn’t clean the pipes, clogs often return. That’s why we recommend hydro jetting for comprehensive drain cleaning, unclogging, and overall maintenance.
