You may have heard of hydro jetting. It’s a form of drain cleaning that your plumber may recommend in some circumstances.

If you’ve begun to experience lots of clogs and are making what seem to be routine calls to the plumber, that’s a cause for concern. Those service calls can add up.

In many cases, the problem is that there is debris like stubborn grease trapped in the line. While snaking the drain can open up the pipe, the clog can reform if all the debris isn’t removed. That’s where hydro jetting comes in. We wash powerful jets of water through your drains to remove that stubborn debris. The result is fewer clogs–and fewer service calls.

Hydro Jetting Is Safe

Unlike commercial drain cleaners that are not safe for plumbing systems–and certainly not safe to use repeatedly, hydro jetting is a safe way to clean your drains. It’s also quite versatile.

Depending on the condition of your pipes, however, your plumber might hesitate to recommend hydro jetting.
