Hydro Jetting

Are you constantly snaking your drains? If you are, and your drains are still clogged, you might want to look into our hydro jetting service. A buildup in your pipes can cause reduced water pressure and attach to the pipe walls, resulting in cracks and breaks.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is a non-invasive plumbing technique that blasts water at high pressures to remove scale, grease, and other debris accumulated in your pipes.

How Does Hydro Jetting Work?

Hydro jetting uses high-pressure water to clear clogs from pipes forcibly. However, if you perform hydro jetting services incorrectly, you can damage your pipes and plumbing system, resulting in a hefty repair bill. For that reason, leaving this project skilled HEP plumber with the tools and experience to complete this job safely is the best option.

What’s the Process?


Step 1: Inspection and Detection

If our technicians determine your pipes can withstand hydro jetting, they will recommend the service if we detect any clogs. If your lines are unsuitable for hydro jetting, the plumber will snake them. Our specialists may recommend installing new piping if your pipes are aging and constantly clogging.

Step 2: Hydro Jetting Service

If your pipes are cleared to withstand hydro jetting, the plumber will locate access points, drop hoses into the lines, and start the service. As the water flows, the hoses will move through the plumbing system and break up any buildup or clogs. The debris will then travel downward, flushing safely out of your plumbing system.

Hydro Jetting vs. Snaking

Hydro jetting and snaking remove clogs, though hydro jetting offers a more aggressive flush than snaking. Hydro jetting uses water to blast clogs while snaking punctures clogs, breaking them apart. Unlike hydro jetting, snaking does reach pipe walls, leaving stubborn debris behind. Snaking is often preferred for older homes since it’s less intense on weaker pipes than hydro jetting.

What Does Hydro Jetting Remove?

Hydro jetting removes a variety of debris from pipes, such as:

  • Hair 
  • Minerals, silt, and sand
  • Grease and fat 
  • Food sediments
  • Tree roots
