What is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is a method used by professionals to clean clogged or blocked sewer lines. A blast of high pressure water is sent into the sewer lines that is usually strong enough to remove any blockages or build ups.
Before moving forward with hydro jetting, a video inspection is typically performed in order to determine the cause of the sewer line problem, and where the blockage is happening within the pipe. If tree roots are a problem, the high pressure should cut through them. However, a snake may need to be used first to tear up heavy roots. Hydro jetting will not solve problems with broken pipes and could cause weakened areas to break. In addition, a video inspection can reduce the possibility of sewage back flushing into other areas.
When Are Hydro Jetting Services Needed?
Hydro jetting is a fantastic option when traditional pipe-clearing methods are ineffective or unable to reach what is clogging a pipe. While a snaking can be a very effective option for pipe clearing, it does not clear out a pipe as much as hydro jetting does. Snaking out pipes only breaks up clogs and blockages but leaves build up remaining on the interior walls of the sewer line. Hydro jetting does a more thorough job of cleaning out the pipes and can do the following for your pipes:
- Penetrate and emulsify grease
- Break up sludge and debris
- Pulverize roots
- Cut out hardened scale
- Flush out the system
- Clean inside walls of a pipe
Is Hydro Jetting Safe For Your Sewer Lines?
Hydro jetting is a safe and efficient alternative to traditional sewer pipe cleaning services and unclogging methods. If your pipes are not already damaged, it is a very safe and effective choice for cleaning out sewer lines. So, if you’re experiencing the hassles of constantly clogged pipes, give our team a call, and ask us about our hydro jetting services.
How Much Does it Cost for Hydro Jetting Services?
The cost of an individual hydro-jetting service varies from job to job, depending on the severity of your clog as well as its location within your piping system. Blockages that are nearer to the entrance of the pipe and are easy to remove will cost less to jet out than ones that are tougher and further back the pipe. On the whole, hydro jetting is an affordable method of cleaning and unclogging your pipes, but the final cost will ultimately depend on your individual case.

Scheduled Hydro Jetting Maintenance Programs Available
Routine sewer and storm-water cleanings and subsequent CCTV pipeline assessments are crucial steps in avoiding line blockages, manhole back-ups, street and house flooding, sinkholes and more. Preventative maintenance can be the greatest ally in extending the life of underground utilities. Inflow and infiltration can not only cause skyrocketing sewer bills but also lead to irreparable damage and costly excavations. If you want to avoid issues in your sewer line you should consider having your sewer lines cleaned every 18-22 months.
