The hydro jetting process can begin with the area prepped and any safety concerns addressed. The plumber will insert a specialized hose and nozzle into the affected sewer pipe connected to a high-pressure water pump. As the water is forced through the nozzle at pressures of up to 4,000 PSI, the force of the water dislodges debris, blockages, and other build-up from the inner walls.
One significant advantage of hydro jetting is that it thoroughly cleans the entire pipe circumference, helping to restore the drain’s full capacity. This method is particularly effective when tree roots have invaded the sewer line or grease has hardened over time, making it difficult for traditional drain cleaning techniques to succeed.
