Aside from completely replacing your drains, hydro-jetting is the single best way to clean your drain.
Hydro-jetting is the method in which high pressure water (3,500 psi) is sent through specialty nozzles to cut roots, lift and remove grease, and scour rust, sand, gravel and any organic materials obstructing your drain. It is intended to restore your drain pipes to their original capacity. Even the toughest blockages and buildup can’t stand up to water jet cutting, which thoroughly cleans pipes.
Beneﬁts of Hydro Jetting:
- Root removal
- Rust removal
- Grease removal
- Hard stoppage removal
- Soft stoppage removal
Hydro Jetting can very easily and effectively cut through even the toughest roots, debris, or any junk. Also removing built up mineral deposits, hydro jetting is the most efficient form of drain cleaning out there.
One of the major benefits of hydro jetting over any other form of drain cleaning, is that it has the power to remove almost any obstruction in your pipes. For example, it pushes any kind of debris or mineral deposits out of the way and clears the way for water to flow freely through the pipes. It also removes any excess build-up, grease, rocks, soap, or scum that often comes from dishes or laundry.
Water jet machine service means cleaner pipes, which means fewer service calls, less down time, overall cost savings and one less thing for you to worry about.
Cabling is the method in which a certain sized cable (depending on the drain size) is fed down the drain with one of a variety of specialty heads in an attempt to push through or grab the debris causing the obstruction.
Cable machines are less effective in removing softer blockages such as grease, scale and other buildup. Cable machines will bore holes through sludge but they can’t clean and push the debris out of pipes as effectively as water jet machines.
- Partial root removal
- Partial rust removal
- Partial hard stoppage removal
- Soft stoppage removal
- Less expensive
Although Hydro-Jetting is a superior cleaning method to Cabling (i.e. rodding, roto-rooting), using the cable still has an important place in the clearing of a drain. For example, many times the clogged drain will be full of water when we arrive. In such a case, the right choice may be to poke a hole through the clog with the cable allowing us to get a camera to the problem area for diagnosis, and ﬁnally sending in the Hydro-Jet to ﬁnish the job.
