Sometimes You Need A Little Extra: Hydro-jetting Service For Your Pipes And Drains

Sometimes You Need A Little Extra Hydro-jetting Service For Your Pipes And Drains

April 14, 20219:03 am Published by : Categorised in:

Is your kitchen sink still a little slow to drain? How about that upstairs toilet? Are you still having to get the plunger out? Even worse, is there something gross backing up into your bathtub? If the answer to any of these troubling questions is yes, then you may need something called hydro jetting, a specialized service provided by a licensed, professional plumbing contractor. You need The Drain Guys Plumbing and Drain Cleaning for hydro-jetting services.

What Is Hydro-jetting?

Sometimes you need more than what a common plumbing snake or plunger can give you. That’s when you should consider contacting The Drain Guys Plumbing and Drain Cleaning to do a hydro jet cleaning service. Hydro jetting involves using a high-pressure stream of water (35,000 psi) to break up and eliminate pesky plumbing system blockages and build-up. While commonly used in commercial settings, hydro jetting can also help solve plumbing and drain problems in residential areas.

What Happens During A Typical Hydro-jetting Service?

The nature of a hydro jet cleaning service is relatively straightforward. First, a thorough video-intensive inspection is done so the technician can assess the overall condition of the pipes or drains (checking for any cracks or holes) and the type and location of any blockage(s) buildup. Suppose the technician finds no physical issues with the pipes or drains. In that case, the technician will insert the nozzle of their hydro jetting system into the problem drain or pipe and initiate a high-pressure blast of water (usually around 35,000 psi) through the drain or tube, which then clears any blockages or buildup.

Common Questions We Receive About Hydro Jetting

Many homeowners are probably used to going the plumbing snake route to tackle when it comes to tackling clogs and other drainage problems, so it’s understandable if they have questions about our residential hydro-jetting service. Here are some of the questions potential clients often ask:

1. What is the difference between hydro jetting and drain cleaning?

Using a snake or zip tool to clear drain blockages does just that. Additionally, hydro jetting removes the sometimes years of buildup that simply drain cleaning leaves behind.

2. What can be removed with hydro jetting?

Hydro jetting can remove a variety of material, including:

  • Buildup from greasy and fatty foods (kitchen sink/garbage disposal, or the toilets)
  • Buildup from hair conditioners (bathtub or bathroom sink)
  • Sand, dirt, or silt
  • Tree or plant roots (sometimes these need to be broken down by using a plumbing snake)

3. Can hydro jetting damage pipes?

If they have cracks or weak spots in them, then hydro jetting can cause further damage. It is why a complete video inspection is done before any hydro jetting is done.

Clogged pipes and drains are probably two of the most annoying situations a homeowner may face. If drainage problems continue to occur even though you’ve faithfully used your handy plumber’s snake, then it might be time to call in a professional. Call The Drain Guys Plumbing and Drain Cleaning to see if our hydro-jetting service is best for you.

Shavon was so awesome! She knew exactly what was wrong, was so personable, and knowledgeable. I felt like she was an old friend of mine. When it was time to unclog my pipes, the technicians made me just as happy. These guys worked so quickly and did not make a mess in my house like some of the other companies I have worked with in the past! They earn my seal of approval and recommendation.

A couple of friends recommended The Drain Guys when I mentioned I needed a water heater inspection. I called them and they come out really quickly and told me that I could repair the water heater. I was relieved because I thought that it was time to replace the unit. They saved me a lot of money

I was afraid to call a Redondo Beach plumber because I do not have a lot of extra money to spend. But, when I experienced a backflow issue, I had no choice. I am thankful they understood my financial situation and gave me such a great price. They were quick and professional on top of the great price.

I recommend this plumbing company hands down. Shavon is an industry professional and knows how to take care of her customers. No other Long Beach plumbing company has ever kept me informed and been so committed to my needs. It is a breath of fresh air, to say the least. The price was right and I could not be happier with my service. I definitely recommend The Drain Guys Plumbing and Drain cleaning.

She told me I needed a sewer line inspection, gave me a quote, and kept all her promises when the techs arrived at the job. Great company, the plumber arrived on time, and fixed my house right!
