Is Hydro Jetting Right for You? Six Signs Your Pipes Need a Powerful Clean

Posted on March 21, 2024

The plumbing system in your home or office works tirelessly behind the scenes, but nothing is flawless. When stubborn blockages, grease buildup, and other forms of debris create a problem, your pipes don’t flow as smoothly as they should. Clogged drains and slow-moving water can be frustrating and inconvenient, but there is a solution: hydro jetting.

What is Hydro Jetting?

This cutting-edge technique harnesses the force of high-pressure water to blast away even the most stubborn clogs and debris buildup from your pipes. The specialized equipment includes a high-pressure pump, hoses, and nozzles designed to emit powerful water streams. After feeding the nozzle into the pipeline, the high-pressure pump generates intense water streams to break apart blockages, grease, roots, and other household debris, flushing them away and restoring optimal flow.

When Do You Need Hydro Jetting?

Here are some signs that your pipes might benefit from a hydro jetting treatment:

  1. Frequent clogs: If you’re constantly battling clogs, especially in multiple drains, hydro jetting can provide a long-term solution by thoroughly cleaning the entire system.
  2. Foul odors: Odors coming from your drains can be a sign of organic matter decomposing within the pipes. Hydro jetting can remove this buildup and eliminate the unpleasant smells.
  3. Mineral buildup: Over time, hard water minerals build up inside pipes, narrowing the passage and causing slow drainage. Hydro jetting can clear these out and restore proper flow.
  4. Grease buildup: This is a common culprit in kitchen sink clogs, impeding the flow of water and leading to costly repairs. Hydro jetting effectively removes the buildup.
  5. Tree root intrusion: Tree roots seeking moisture and nutrients often penetrate underground pipelines, causing significant blockages and sometimes even structural damage. Hydro jetting can cut through roots and flush them away.
  6. Regular maintenance: Regular hydro jetting can be a preventative measure to avoid blockages and buildup, extend the lifespan of pipelines, drains, and industrial equipment, and minimize the need for costly repairs.

Hydro jetting is a powerful and effective way to clear tough clogs and clean pipes thoroughly. However, it’s important to consult with Raider Rooter to determine if it’s the right solution for your specific situation and plumbing system.
