The Pros and Cons of Hydro-Jetting

The expert plumbers here at Trenchless Sewer Plumbing Inc. want you to know that hydro-jetting is an efficient, fast, and affordable way to clear your drain and sewer lines of any type of obstructions. However, just like with any other plumbing service, hydro-jetting is not without its pros and cons. In this post, we’ll talk about precisely what hydro-jetting is, what it's for, and the pros and cons of the service.

What is Hydro-Jetting (High-Pressure Water Jetting)?

Hydro-jetting (AKA high-pressure water jetting) is a method of clearing drains and sewer lines of clogs and obstructions using highly-pressurized water jets. It is efficient, effective, and environmentally friendly.

To get a better understanding of what hydro-jetting is, let’s compare it to the pressure washers that you can rent/purchase at your local hardware store. Both tools use pressurized water to clear and clean messes. However, the primary difference between the two tools is that hydro-jetting machines utilize water that is under much, much more pressure than a common pressure washer. Since water doesn’t easily compress, that added pressure translates directly into greater cleaning power!

What are the Pros of Hydro-Jetting Services?

The pros of hydro-jetting include:

  • Hydro-jetting clears stubborn clogs with just water
  • It can also cut through tree roots that have invaded your sewer line
  • Hydro-jetting can be done to both commercial and residential drain lines
  • Hydro-jetting is environmentally safe and green
  • High-pressure water jetting services will clear the entire drain line rather than just a small section of it (rooter services will only clear an opening as large as the diameter of the rooter augur)

What are the Cons of Hydro-Jetting Services?

The cons of hydro-jetting include:

  • Hydro-jetting can be too much for older and weaker pipelines to handle
  • It can’t help clear drain lines that have been obstructed by serious damage like a bellied line
  • Hydro-jetting can be less effective at removing extra serious drain obstructions than rooter or auger drain cleaning services
