What Is Hydro-Jetting & Why Would I Need It?

Monday, January 4, 2021

If you constantly have clogged drains, or think there is an issue going on in your sewer line, there might be an issue deep within your drain line that the regular home or business owner cannot remedy.  Hydro-jetting is a process that will clear your sewers from grime, debris, hair, and other obstructions causing slow home or business plumbing.

Depending on the capacity of your drains and sewer lines, the process of hydro jetting itself is sending a stream of water into your sewer lines at a very high-pressure (usually between 3,000 and 35,000 PSI).  If consistent maintenance is ineffective — such as using drain cleaners or drain snaking — then hydro jetting your sewer lines might need the best option.

Ultimately, we will always inspect your pipes and sewer lines before operating our hydro-jetting equipment.  There might be significant blockages a lot further down in your lines, so we will always make sure that the high-pressure of hydro-jetting will take care of these hard-to-reach obstructions.

While a hydro jetter is an effective resource for drain cleaning, some sewer lines — like lines made of casted iron — accumulate scale, heavy crust buildup, or will rust within the inner walls.  Here at Bison Plumbing, we use what is called a Picotte machine, a point-of-use device that precisely scrapes and cleans walls of water lines.  This machine will leave your lines looking factory fresh and free of all sorts of depreciated material.
