What is Residential Hydro Jetting?
Residential hydro jetting involves pushing water through your drain lines at thousands of Pounds per Square Inch (PSI) to remove clogs in your system.

High pressure water can be used to remove clogs within your home or even in lines connecting your home to municipal drainage systems.

How Home Hydro Jetting Works
Hydro jetting, also known as water jet pipe cleaning, works by forcing obstructions through pipes to drain into a septic tank or city waste water system. If enough pressure is exerted on a clog of hair, debris, paper, food or other substance clogging your home’s plumbing, it can be forced on through and resolved.
The process only takes a short time, but a thorough inspection must be done beforehand. Your plumber may use a video camera fed through your pipes on a drain snake to inspect the pipes before clearing them out. Damaged pipes and plumbing that may break or crack under high pressure are not eligible for hydro-jet cleaning.
High pressure pipe cleaning methods are usually reserved for serious clogs that can’t be removed with the use of snake drains or augers. It is almost always successful in remove tough clogs and blockages. Hydro-jet cleaning should only be performed by well experienced plumbers and drain professionals.
Hydro jetting is usually preceded by a visual inspection of your system to check for pipe strength, because if done on pipes with cracks it can cause breakage and worsening the overall condition. Contact Clark County Plumbing & Drain for a quick and reliable drain cleaning estimate.
