What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is a non-invasive and effective plumbing solution to clear out grease and debris buildups on pipe walls. This drain cleaning solution involves using highly pressurized (up to 4000 psi) water flow to scour the interior surface of plumbing pipes. Hydro jet plumbing can remove grease, sludge, tree roots and any such obstructions from sewer pipes. A hose, a highly durable nozzle and a high-tech hydro jetting machine is used in the process to throw the water inside pipes in high pressure. No chemicals is used during the process but only water which makes it environment friendly.

Although, there are few alternative methods to clean drains and sewer pipes such as rodding or snaking where plumber uses a tool to power a hole through the accumulation. But hydro jet plumbing is more prevalent among expert plumbers nowadays for its effectiveness and higher rate of acuracy. Hydro jetting can also resolve overflows in a clogged grease trap or interceptor.

How does hydro jetting work?

Hydro jetting is neither a DIY project nor should be done by an ametuer plumber. Hydro jet plumbing is not a simple task. The whole cleaning process involves use of highly pressurized water flow which will force and break through grease buildups, mineral scale or any other obstructions  and eventually flow down the sewerage system. If anything goes wrong with such measurement in determining pressure of water flow, the situation can get worse. An expert hydro jet plumber will never proceed with drain cleaning without a thorough inspection of your system. If there’s any damage already occurred in your pipes, hydro jetting will only cause more damage to your plumbing system resulting in expensive repair. 

It’s recommended that you leave this task to the professionals such as the Grease Company, who have the right technology, and experience to complete the job in a proper fashion.

There are two main steps of hydro jet plumbing, inspection and utilizing high pressure water to clean pipes.

Step 1: Inspection

As mentioned earlier, before the main process of hydro jetting begins, the hydro jet plumber will perform a video inspection of your plumbing system. In the inspection, he will locate heavy blockages and buildups, and if there’s any damage inside the pipe to understand whether the system can withstand high pressure water flow. If your plumbing pipes are old or got cracks inside it, it’s best not to proceed with hydro jet plumbing to avoid further damage. In that case, experts from TGC will recommend another appropriate method for your plumbing system such as SNAKING.

Step 2: Utilizing high pressure water to clean up debris and buildups

After the inspection, the plumber will find an ideal spot to stick the hose inside. A highly durable nozzle is used in the process for the best result. The plumber drops hoses into your pipes or drains and the hydro jetting machine starts to shoot water inside your plumbing pipes. The machine can shoot up to 20 gallons of water per minute (5000 psi). This is where it gets tricky for the plumber as the pressure has to be set accordingly otherwise water flow can damage the pipes. As the hose moves through the plumbing system with water flows, debris, grease buildups and even tree roots will break and travel down the sewer system.

Knowledgebase - Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning

What are the differences between hydro jetting and snaking?

Snaking is the method of using a auger to power through grease buildups, and puncture clogs. Plumbing snakes consists of a long tube made of metal and a cable attached to the tube with a steel blade or corkscrew. Some of the plumbing snakes are manual and some of them are battery operated.

Snaking was a great method for drain cleaning before hydro jetting was introduced. Unlike hydro jetting, Snaking can’t clear the pipes completely. It only creates a hole in the blockage. On the other hand, hydro jet plumbing doesn’t use a blade or chemicals but highly pressurized water flow to get rid of clogs. With hydro jet drain cleaning, you can literally break any obstruction, doesn’t matter- how stubborn they are. It is much more effective and promises better and long-term cleaning than Snaking.

However, there are some cases such as a weakened or old pipe, plumbing pipes that are already damaged, SNAKING is chosen instead of hydro jetting as this method is less intense and doesn’t create much pressure on pipe walls like hydro jet plumbing.

What type of obstructions can be removed with hydro jetting?

Hydro jet plumbing is the most effective plumbing solution that can literally break through any obstruction such as mineral scale, grease buildups, etc.

Here’s a list of material that may be blocking your sewer pipes that hydro jetting can remove-

  1. Mineral Deposits
  2. Grease or FOG buildups
  3. Food sludge
  4. Hair clog
  5. Silt
  6. Sand
  7. Tree roots
When is hydro jet plumbing needed?

Hydro jetting is used to clear out clogs, debris and obstruction that may be either blocking your plumbing system or interrupting water flow inside your sewer pipes which might cause sewer backups or overflows. There are few signs that you can look for to know, your system needs hydro jet cleaning.

  1. Frequent sewer backups: If your plumbing system backs up quickly, then there’s probably clogs inside your sewer pipes and your establishment requires hydro jet drain cleaning.
  2. Bad odor: If you notice a hint of stench in your kitchen area which doesn’t disappear after rounds of thorough clean up, you can consider a hydro jetting service for your business or household.
  3. Slow water movement in drains: If you notice, your drains are running slow- there’s surely a clog somewhere inside that’s interrupting water flow movement. In a situation like this, you should not hesitate to hire a hydro jet plumber to remove this obstruction to avoid further blockage.

Whenever any of these situation occurs, you should call a professional hydro jet plumbing company quickly. A timely hydro jetting service can save you lots of money by preventing further plumbing issues which may even result in sewer line replacement.

Pros and Cons of Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is the most comprehensive plumbing solution for drain cleaning, unclogging pipes and preventing unwanted quick buildups. The solution promises a complete clean plumbing system and long-term relief for the customer. Undoubtedly, hydro jet plumbing is a wonderful method for cleaning stubborn drain clogs and getting rid of obstructions.But that doesn’t mean this process of drain cleaning is without its own set of faults.

We, the Grease Co. want our customer to be fully aware of all the pros and cons of hydro jetting, and therefore we have put together all the advantages and risks of high pressure water jet cleaning in the following section-

Advantages of Hydro Jet drain cleaning

Hydro jetting clears out everything: It is a fact that with high pressure (up to 5000 psi) water flow, hydro jetting can clear out any obstruction. Grease scale, grease buildups, hair clogs, even tree roots, no matter how stubborn and thick the blockage is, don’t stand a chance against hydro jet drain cleaning.

Hydro jet plumbing cleans the pipes completely: Unlike other drain cleaning solutions, hydro jetting doesn’t just poke holes in the obstruction. Hydro jet plumbing clears any debris and sticky buildups there may be inside the pipe, even from the interior surface. Afterwards, hydro jet plumbing makes the pipe as clean as possible. 

It is a non-invasive drain cleaning solution: Hydro jetting doesn’t require digging to get at the clogged pipes which makes it non-invasive and a much cleaner process.

Hydro jetting is environment friendly: There’s no use of CHEMICALS in the process of hydro jet drain cleaning which makes it safe and an environment friendly plumbing solution.

Long-term Solution: Snaking and other drain cleaning solutions may release water flow by creating holes in the blockage but that’s neither permanent nor long lasting. On the other hand, hydro jetting prevents another quick grease buildup as it clears the problem from its root.

Risks of Hydro Jetting

When it comes to clearing clogs and removing debris, grease build ups from the inside of a plumbing pipe, there’s no better solution than hydro jetting. But there are some drawbacks that you should know about-

Hydro jetting can damage old or weakened pipes: Hydro jet plumbing uses water flow in really high pressure to break through blockages. When the pipe is new or strong enough to withstand such pressure, it is completely OKAY. But in the cases where the pipes are old, or have gone damaged due to some reason (root infestation), hydro jet plumbing will just make the scenario worse. Old or damaged pipes can get totally broken by the highly pressurized water flow resulting in expensive pipe replacement. 
Hydro jet plumbing is not a DIY (do it yourself) project: Hydro jet drain cleaning is not a DIY project like Snaking. You’ll need to consult a professional hydro jet plumber to conduct the cleaning operation. 
Hydro Jetting involves the use of a hydro jet machine, highly durable hose and nozzle which is expensive. The cleaning process includes a video inspection, and measuring the pressure of water flow based on the thickness of blockages. One mistake can damage your plumbing system and these are the reasons why hydro jetting needs to be done by a professional plumber.

Frequently asked Questions - Hydro jetting

Hydro jetting is proven to be more powerful and efficient than other drain cleaning techniques. Stubborn clogs or mighty tree roots, nothing can stand in the way of highly pressurized hydro jet water flow. Hydro jet plumbing is also a long-term solution as it is preventative against recurring clogs and grease buildups.

While doing our job, expert hydro jet plumbers from TGC encounter lots of questions from our customers. We’ve tried to answer some of those commonly asked questions in this section-

What is a hydro jetter or hydro jetting machine?

A hydro jetting machine is a powerful washer that can throw water at a pressure level of 5000 psi. With highly pressurized water flow, a hydro jetting machine is used in clearing out clogs, and blockages from drain, sewers and even grease trap/interceptors.

How does hydro jetting work?

Every plumbing system has a section named cleanout which is basically used in situations when the plumbing pipes need to be cleaned inside out. We insert our highly durable hose with a jetting nozzle attached with it from the cleanout point in the sewer line. Afterwards, we let the water flow in high pressure through the hose. We make sure that your pipes are clean as new, and less prone to another quick buildup.

Is hydro jetting safe for pipes and plumbing systems?

Hydro jetting is absolutely safe for a pipe that is strong enough to withstand such high pressure water flow, but if the drain has become fragile from wear and tear- hydro jet plumbing may not be the ideal option for cleaning. In such cases, you can either choose Snaking as your drain cleaning method or you may as well replace your plumbing pipes.

How do technicians access a blocked plumbing system?

Most drain lines and plumbing systems have a cleanout point which is basically built to access the system in times of need. They can be easily found and an expert plumber knows where to find them. But for smaller drains or separate plumbing pipes, hydro jet technicians can access the system in the same way they would for Snaking.

Can hydro jetting be done on my own?

No, hydro jetting is not a DIY project. Hydro jet plumbing involves inspection, measurement and utilization of highly pressurized water. One mistake in any of these can cost you lots of money in plumbing repair. Plus, hydro jet drain cleaning involves expensive equipment such as hydro jetting machines, highly durable hose and nozzle, etc. Even if you buy them, it can be dangerous for an individual without training or expert attention.
