Now and then, debris and foreign objects go down your drain. Whether it’s a child flushing down a roll of toilet paper or food debris down the kitchen sink, the waste often combines to cause blockage. While there are many solutions, including using boiling water to unclog minor and major blockages, none is as effective as hydro jetting.

At Curtis Plumbing, we have designed our Marana professional hydro jetting services to unclog all types of blockages. From bathroom drains clogs to sewer line blockages, we have consistently delivered exceptional results for our Marana clients.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting (high-pressure water jetting) is the process of pumping high-pressure water jets into the plumbing system to clear clogs and other types of pipe blockages. The technique uses hydro jets to scour all types of debris from sewer lines.

The equipment that plumbers use for hydro jetting is known as a jetter. The equipment contains a high-pressure hose, a specialized nozzle, and a water tank. There are different types of nozzles depending on the type or composition of the sewer blockage. Unlike traditional methods like snaking, hydro jetting is highly effective in removing stubborn clogs.

Despite its effectiveness, it is not advisable to use hydro jetting on older pipes as they might not be able to withstand high-pressure water jets. Hydro jetting will also not work on already broken sewer lines or pipes.

How Does Hydro Jetting Work?

The process often starts with the plumber doing a video inspection of the sewer line to locate major clogs and their composition. Video inspection also helps the plumber understand the pipe configuration and ensure it will not lead to sewage backup. Inspections also help the plumber ensure that the pipes can withstand hydro jetting.

Typically, getting the process wrong can break pipes and lead to other serious damage to the plumbing system. That is why you should let Marana hydro jetting experts at Curtis Plumbing do your hydro jetting. We have the skills, the experience, and the right tools for the job.

The actual hydro jetting starts when the plumber locates suitable access points, inserts the high-pressure hoses into the sewer line, and begins pumping water. The high-pressure water blasts through the sewer line flushing out clogs and debris buildups.

The hydro jetting equipment often pressurizes the water up to 35,000 pounds per square inch (PSI). The expert plumber adjusts the water pressure depending on the type of clog or blockage and its composition.

Hydro jetting easily breaks up heavy buildups from food materials, grease, debris, mineral deposits, hair clogs, silt, sand, and tree roots. However, for tree roots, if the damage to the pipes is extensive or there is no waterproofing, hydro jetting may not be effective.

The Benefits of Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting has several benefits, including:

  • Comprehensive cleaning capability. Unlike traditional techniques like snaking, hydro jetting thoroughly cleans up sewer lines without leaving buildups on the pipe walls.
  • Non-invasive and environmentally friendly. Hydro jetting is eco-friendly as it uses plain water and not chemicals.
  • Long-term effectiveness (prevents future clogs). The thorough scouring of pipes ensures they remain clean for a long time.
  • Safe for all types of pipes (if done well). It does not matter the shape of a pipe, hydro jetting still does a safe and effective job.
  • Cost-effectiveness in the long run. Hydro jetting saves money in the long term as it keeps the sewer line clean for a long time.
