What is Hydro Jetting?

When your plumbing's on the run, Abend gets it done!

What is Hydro JettingYou’re probably here because your drains are slow to empty, or you’re getting recurring clogs that leave standing water in your shower or sink. If you haven’t found a solution to your problem, hydro jetting may be the answer.

Hydro jetting uses high-powered water to clear pipes and lines in your sewer or main water line. The high-pressure water comes out at up to 4,000 PSI and can be a safer way to remove pipe clogs than alternative methods.

Hydro, or water, jetting can remove grease, oil, soap, sludge, minerals, and scale buildup in your pipe walls that commonly cause clogs and slow drainage. It’s high-powered enough to break up tree roots that could cause a blockage in your sewer pipes or water line.

When is it the Right Solution?

You can use hydrojetting in residential and commercial settings. Plumbers turn to this method when dealing with recurring drain clogs. If your sewer drain smells, it’s a good indicator that things aren’t flowing away from your home into the main sewer line. Water jetting is usually the best solution for this problem.

Benefits of Hydro Jetting

Unless your problem is a broken pipe, that must be repaired or replaced, hydro jetting is a cost-effective way to prevent clogs in your home or sewer line. There are several benefits to using this method to clear clogs.

Environmentally Friendly

Some pipe cleaning procedures require chemicals or hazardous materials to dissolve the buildup and get your drains flowing again. When you choose hydro jetting, the only product used is water. Hydro jetting offers an eco-friendly solution to clean your water and sewer pipes that won’t affect your family’s health.

Highly Effective

Water jetting is a highly effective method to clear clogs and clean your pipes. High-pressured hot water makes quick work of ridding your lines of buildup that contributes to your frequent drain or pipe clogs. Though simple, it beats more labor-intensive and costly methods.

You may have tried using a plumbing snake, which only puts holes in the clog but doesn’t break it up enough to do any good. Hydro jetting will break up the clog and get rid of it for good! You’ll have clean pipes and prevent potential clogs in the future.


Other methods may require a plumber to dig up your yard to access the clogged pipe. The procedure is a non-invasive method that uses your home’s cleanout for access, blasting away the buildup without chemicals or invading your yard.
