When it comes to dealing with big-league drain or sewer line clogs, a product like Drain-O, or even a plumbing snake, isn’t going to be tough enough to handle the job. Clogs involving heavy-duty residue such as dirt, silt, grease, soap and other debris require a heavy-duty solution: enter, hydro-jetting.
A hydro-jet machine uses pressurized water to clear out pipe blockages. These machines are super-powerful: they are can apply pressure of up to 4,000 pounds. As a result, anything and everything blocking your drain or sewer line will be blasted away almost instantly—even large foreign objects like rocks or tree roots.
Besides fixing the immediate clog, hydro-jetting is also a good long-term solution to keep drains clog-free into the future; hydro-jetting scours your pipes completely to remove all build-up, leaving them as good as new.
It’s important to note that hydro-jetting isn’t something can you do yourself, and it’s not an appropriate solution for most typical household clogs (clogged toilet, clogged shower drain, etc.). But for an industrial-sized clog that can’t be cleared with a snake, the best solution is to call a reputable plumber who can perform hydro-jetting services.
