Hydro-Jetting

schedule now!

Have your drains become clogged over time? Often times, cabling (or snaking) drain clogs is a sufficient way to clear blockages. However, if your drains are clogging up routinely even after cabling, or if the clog is too far into the line for a cable to reach, it may be time for a more permanent solution.

Blockages caused by food, grease, rust, sand, silt and tree roots often cannot be completely removed by cabling. Hydrojetting not only ensures that the pipes are unstopped, but cleans them to nearly new condition.

Hydrojetting is the process of pumping highly pressurized water through a hose in the drain using up to 4,000 PSI and up to 18 GPM. As the water strikes the inside of the pipe, debris falls away and drains forward.   Hydro Jetting is typically done through an opening called a sewer cleanout, which is an accessible opening providing access to the sewer to allow plumbers to easily “clean out” debris and other clogs.  Every plumbing system is designed to carry waste water “downstream” using gravity.  The Hydro Jetting nozzle is placed at the “downstream” end of the plumbing system and it works its way “upstream” against gravity.  That way, any debris that is cleared out by the Hydro Jetter will harmlessly flow downstream where the drainage path is already clear.  The Hydro Jetters used by Rooter Rooter are capable of clearing out sewer lines up to 500 feet.
