Arguably the most common issue that homeowners face in plumbing is clogged drains. The most common solution to this problem is snaking. The snaking process involves a long steel cable that’s inserted into the drain and clears blockages.
The alternative option, Hydro-Jetting, is a process relying on water pressure to complete the same tasks as a snaking solution, without the damage. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of this process.
Hydro-jetting is a high-pressure drain cleaning method using a forceful stream of water. This water will then pumped into the drain at levels ranging between 3,000 and 8,000 pounds per square inch of pressure (PSI). Different plumbers work with ranging types of equipment, to varying effectiveness.
There is only one notable downside to hydro-jetting: Damaged pipes. Against weaker or older systems, the intense water pressure can be too powerful. At Whipple Service Champions, we know how to check your pipes in advance to ensure they’ll withstand the pressure.
