What Is Hydro Jetting Used for?

Hydro jetting is a service that many plumbers are proud to offer. Not all plumbers have the equipment available for hydro jetting, or theirs may be outdated or ineffective. We are proud to offer this service for homeowners in the Ontario, CA area, but we know that our customers aren’t always sure what it is or why it’s needed.

How Hydro Jetting Works

Essentially, a hydro jetter is a hose. But the water pressure within the hose is so much higher than from your regular garden hose or faucet. What’s more is that the circular nozzle of a hydro jetter sprays out water at all 360°. When there is a major drain clog, a plumber feeds the hydro jetter down the drains and water sprays out and blasts debris away from the lining of the pipes.

Why Hydro Jetting Is an Effective Choice

When there is a major drain clog, a plumber could use a drain snake to pull out blockage—or to break it up so that it can move down the sewer line. But this is really only a temporary solution to a larger problem.

Residue in the lining of the pipes—like grease—clings to the drain and allows for debris to catch on. The best way to resolve this problem is to take care of the stuck-on residue in the pipes, so that debris moving down the piping is less likely to clog it up. Hydro jetting not only gets rid of the clog but actually prevents clogs from forming again.

Hydro Jetting for Small Drains

With the right equipment, hydro jetting is not just for larger sewer line cleanouts. It can also clear out specific drains—like in the kitchen. This is where fats, oils, and grease tend to stop up the drains the most frequently. Remember, not every plumber offers this service, so call ahead to be sure this is the method your plumber plans to use.
