Professional Hydrojetting in California

Hydrojetting utilizes high-pressure water to eliminate clogs within a piping system. They are unique devices featuring a hose and a specialized nozzle that propels water inside the sewer lines to eliminate debris buildup hindering water flow. Most hydro jets use 3,500 to 4,000 psi to clean a pipe’s interior without damaging its structure.

Hydrojetting eliminates several forms of debris, including:

  • Grease
  • Food particles
  • Mineral scale
  • Waste
  • Tree roots (depending on the severity

The Hydro Jetting Process

Hydro Jetting Plumbing

Professional plumbers use an effective hydro jetting process that ensures optimal results.

Step One: Pipe Inspection

Plumbers start by conducting a video inspection to locate the clog’s source. They guide a small camera inside the pipe until they spot the blockage and other problematic areas. Plumbers also analyze the pipe’s quality to ensure they qualify for hydro jetting.

Step Two: Clean the Pipe

Once a plumber identifies the clog, they use highly pressurized water to eliminate it and remove any other debris obstructing water flow. Plumbers use different psi settings depending on the blockage’s severity and the pipe’s durability.

If your pipes are too brittle for hydrojetting, plumbers can use an auger to disperse the clog while preserving the piping system’s structure. Your plumber will determine the best method during the video inspection and alert you if your pipes aren’t durable enough for the process. It’s best to consider replacing the pipes if they can’t withstand high water pressure from hydrojetting.
