Hydro-Jetting or Snaking?
Hydro-jetting is a high-pressure cleaning of your sewer system, blasting away any residual sludge or roots growing in the pipe. Hydro-jetting can clean the sewer line while lessening the chances of any main line stoppages or future issues to arise. We utilize cutting-edge sewer cleaning processes like hydro-jetting, which involve using a low volume of water (about 18 gallons per minute) under extremely high pressure (up to 4,000 PSI) to scour the pipe walls of your waste disposal system. Not all pipes can handle the high pressure of the hydro-jetting. Such pipes may benefit from a more common drain snaking.
Snaking Option: A drain auger or “snake” is a long, flexible coil that we use to unclog drains when they are backed up with said blockages, be it paper towels or roots. The snake gets pushed through the pipe and either carves a hole through the middle of or twists around the blockage allowing passage through the pipe once again.
Please note that snaking is not always the best method as it may allow for reoccurring backups and issues. Depending on the cause of the blockage and health of your sewer pipes will determine which drain cleaning option is best for your situation.
