The Pros and Cons of Hydro-Jetting

Here at Domco Plumbing, we pride ourselves on being the go-to company for hydro-jetting services. However, like any other plumbing service, hydro-jetting (high pressure water jetting) is not without its pros and cons. Let’s explore what hydro-jetting is, and what the pros and cons of it are in some more detail.

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

Hydro-jetting (high pressure water jetting) is the act of cleaning out drains and sewer lines using highly-pressurized water. Hydro-jetting machines function almost identically to common pressure washers that can be rented and purchased at your local hardware store. The primary difference between hydro-jetting machines and pressure washers is that hydro-jetting machines use water that is under much, much higher pressures. Since water practically doesn’t compress under normal pressures, this increased pressure translates directly into greater cleaning power!

What are the Pros of Hydro-Jetting?

The pros of hydro-jetting (high pressure water jetting) include things like:

  • – Hydro-jetting clears stubborn clogs with just water
  • – Hydro-jetting can be done to both commercial and residential drain lines
  • – It can also cut through tree roots that have invaded your sewer line
  • – 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?

The cons of hydro-jetting (high pressure water jetting) includes things like:

  • – Hydro-jetting can be less effective at removing extra serious drain obstructions than rooter or auger drain cleaning services
  • – 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
