How Effective is Hydro Jetting?

How Effective is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro-jetting is a main staple of the modern-day plumber and allows you to watch your drain problems go down the drain. Hydro jetting uses a specialized, high pressure hose connected to a machine that creates a water stream powerful enough to clean drains. The water is sprayed down the drain and obliterates minerals, hair, grease, and other buildup that cause blockages in the drain. It has proven to be an effective method of removing silt from within plumbing and is a much more cost effective and efficient method of drain cleaning. This technique of using pressurized water first appeared as a plumbing technique in the 1950’s but the equipment was much too bulky and expensive. However, with modern advancements, hydro-jetting can be operated by a single plumber making it a viable tool for commercial plumbing which has brought about its popularity. If you would like to know more about what goes into hydro-jetting and how drains are cleaned using pressurized water read our other blog titled What is Hydro Jetting.

If you love the viral power washing videos then you are going to enjoy hydro-jetting. Using water pressure as high as 60,000 PSI, hydro-jetting washers remove a wide variety of gunk, grime, sludge, debris, and any type of clog out from your sewer pipes. The pressurized water is strong enough to cut through roots that have infiltrated pipes. This non-intrusive technique can be a money saver when dealing with lateral pipes. Lateral pipes connect the home plumbing to the sewer system owned by the city. All lateral pipes are the responsibility of the home owner. The use of hydro-jetting allows for easy drain cleaning without the need to excavate the property which reduces cost. The PSI will range depending what level task is being done but hydro-jetting can be used for residential, municipal, and commercial drain lines alike. Even the most environmentally friendly home owners can appreciate this plumbing method because it uses only water, no chemical drain cleaners involved.

The biggest advantages hydro-jetting offers are that it is non-invasive, chemical free, and it is powerful cleaning method that is completely safe for all types of sewer lines. Hydro-jetting unclogs and cleans the interior of your pipes. Unlike a plumbing snake which only pushes debris through the pipe, hydro-jetting removes the sediment along the walls decreasing the likelihood of the sewer lines clogging again. However, caution should always be taken. Do not haphazardly flush water down your sewer lines though. A professional should perform a camera inspection to diagnose the issue and prepare the best course of action. Due to the high-water pressure involved if done incorrectly hydro-jetting can damage your plumbing and even harm you or another person. Before proceeding with any plumbing services be sure to call the professionals at Bill Howe Plumbing. Our certified technicians will handle the dirty work while you enjoy the magic of hydro-jetting.

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
