Common Questions About Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is generally necessary when standard drain clearing methods, like snaking, are ineffective. It’s particularly useful for severe clogs, such as those caused by grease buildup, tree roots, or mineral deposits. Hydro jetting is also a better choice for comprehensive cleaning of the entire pipe system. Standard drain clearing is usually sufficient for simple, isolated clogs or when the pipes are fragile and might be damaged by high pressure.

Yes, hydro jetting can potentially damage old or weakened pipes. The high-pressure water used in hydro jetting is powerful and can cause further deterioration or breakage in pipes that are already compromised due to age, corrosion, or previous damage. It’s essential to have a professional assess the condition of your pipes before proceeding with hydro jetting.

The frequency of hydro jetting depends on the specific needs of your plumbing system. For residential properties, it might be done every few years as part of regular maintenance. In commercial settings, especially in businesses like restaurants with high grease buildup, it may be needed more frequently, such as annually. Regular inspections can help determine the optimal frequency for your situation.

Hydro jetting works by using high-pressure water streams to clean and clear pipes. A hose with a specialized nozzle is inserted into the pipe, and high-pressure water is blasted out, cutting through and flushing away clogs and buildup. This process not only clears blockages but also thoroughly cleans the interior walls of the pipes, removing all types of debris, grease, and scale buildup, restoring full flow capacity to the plumbing system.

The duration of a hydro jetting service can vary based on the severity of the blockage and the length of the pipes being cleaned. On average, most hydro jetting services are completed within one to three hours. For more extensive or difficult blockages, such as those in larger commercial plumbing systems or severely clogged residential lines, the process might take longer. The speed and effectiveness of the service are also influenced by the professional’s experience and the equipment used.

Yes, hydro jetting is highly effective at removing tree roots from pipes. The high-pressure water streams used in hydro jetting can cut through and break apart tree roots that have infiltrated sewer lines. However, it’s important to note that while hydro jetting clears the existing roots, it doesn’t prevent roots from growing back into the pipes. Additional measures, like repairing any cracks or gaps in the piping where roots have entered, may be necessary to provide a long-term solution.

The debris and buildup dislodged by hydro jetting are typically flushed out of the pipes by the force of the water. This waste material then flows into the main sewer system or septic tank. In cases where hydro jetting is used for extensive blockages or heavy buildup, the professional may use additional methods to collect and dispose of the debris, especially if it includes substantial material like tree roots or large obstructions. The goal is to leave the pipes clean and clear, restoring full function to the plumbing system.
