Plumbing FAQ: What Is Hydro Jetting?

drainWhen it comes to plumbing in Williamsburg, you may think first and foremost of the faucets and fixtures that distribute water throughout your home. Obviously, this supply side of the plumbing system is incredibly important. It is also only one half of the whole picture. The other half is the drainage side of your plumbing system. Your drain and sewer system plays a vital role in your day to day life, and you cannot afford to take any chances with its overall operation.

Okay, so what type of problems do you expect to encounter with your drain and sewer system? If you said “slow-moving, backed up drains and clogs,” then you have a good idea of what issues to expect. Now, what do you do about them? If your answer doesn’t start with calling us to schedule service, then you need to reconsider your position. We offer hydro jetting services designed to leave your drains and sewers clean and clear.

What Is Hydro Jetting?

As you’ve probably figured out on your own, hydro jetting is a service that uses water. In this case, it is a service using water in order to clean out your drains and sewer line. How is this possible, if the symptom of clogs is that water cannot pass through these pipes to begin with?

Well, hydro jetting uses pressurized water in the process, not just water poured down the drain. By blasting away at clogs and blockages, hydro jetting not only ensures that you are clearing out these blockages effectively, but it actually helps to flush those broken up blockages down the pipe, too. Plus, hydro jetting does not just clear out the pipe. It cleans the interior surfaces of the pipe, which translates into lasting effects.

But Why Schedule Drain Cleaning?

“Okay,” you may be thinking, “I get how it works. But don’t they have chemical cleaners at the hardware store for this type of thing?” Yes, that may be true. However, you are simply not going to get the results from those types of cleaners that you would from hydro jetting. Not only is hydro jetting completed by a trained professional well-versed in handling this type of job, but it is also just a far preferable method.

Using those kinds of cleaners that you just pour down the pipe will typically break up just enough of the clog to allow the cleaner itself to pass by. That does not result in a drain that is going to stay clean in the long run. Plus, you are not going to be able to count on such simple solutions if the clog is further down the line in the sewer. Trust us when we tell you that hydro jetting is the way to go when you are serious about not just clearing out your drains, but cleaning them effectively. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have.
