What Is Hydro Jetting?
Think of hydro jetting as a power washer for your drains. This jetting service involves using high water pressure to “flush out” whatever it is in your pipes that is preventing the water from going down. It is designed for clogged drains that don’t seem to be responding to other simpler interventions, such as using a liquid drain cleaner or a plumbing snake.
Common Clogged Drain Causes
Unless you allow a lot of debris to flow down your pipes, you may be wondering what is behind your clogged drain. Here are a few of the most common causes:
- Food particles
- Fat, grease, or cooking oil
- Flushable wipes…yes, contrary to their name, these can clog your drains!
- Feminine hygiene products
- Tree roots and other natural causes (sand, silt, scale deposits)
Taking simple precautions can help prevent your pipes from clogging. This includes never pouring hot grease down the kitchen sink and using toilet paper—which is designed to degrade in your sewer lines—versus flushable wipes, which don’t break down as easily.
In instances that are a bit more outside your control, such as tree roots and other natural causes, high pressure drain cleaning is the way to go.
