What Is Hydro Jetting And How Will It Help My Plumbing?

If you’ve ever seen a power washer clean anything, you know how easily the machine can remove stuck on debris and even peeling paint.

Hydro jetting is a similar thing, just specific to cleaning the inside of your home’s drains and pipes. Grease, sludge and roots can create significant blockages in your home’s plumbing system, and sometimes a plumbing snake simply isn’t enough to clear the debris. If you have stubborn build-up in your home’s plumbing and need drain cleaning in Diamond Bar, CA, it may be time to consider scheduling an appointment for hydro jetting.

What Is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is a process in which very high water pressure – up to 3,500 psi – is applied to your drains and piping. Like a power washer, the water streams from a hydro jetter can cut through debris, including rootwork, and wash it away without damaging your plumbing. The hydro jetting machine is placed at an opening on your plumbing system known as a “cleanout” at the downstream end of your plumbing system. When activated, the hydro jetter shoots water upstream into your plumbing so that all the loosened debris flows downstream and exits your plumbing system.

What Are the Benefits of Hydro Jetting?

  • Removal of FOG (fats, oil, grease) from your plumbing – FOG materials are very stubborn and can form serious build-up in your drains. Hydro jetting can remove these kinds of build-up without issue.
  • Removal of mineral build-ups – as with FOG problems, hydro jetting can remove mineral scaling inside your plumbing, freeing your water flow.
  • Good for maintenance – removing problematic build-up in your plumbing helps maintain it.
  • Complete cleaning – hydro jetting removes all materials from your drains completely, leaving them fully clean.

The cleaning of a hydro jetter is tough enough to remove all kinds of debris from your pipes, including roots, without damaging the pipes.
