When your sewer lines are clogged, this procedure may be the your best option.


It won’t be hard to tell when your sewage lines back up. The smell alone will be enough to warn you that something is wrong! When serious grease clogs form in your drains and lines, hand tools simply wont be enough. However, this situation does not have to spell doom for your home.

Most professional plumbers, like Done Plumbing & Heating, are equipped to deal with these kinds of clogs using hydro-jet technology. Using nothing but water, your pipes will be sparkling clean, and flowing like new in no time. If you find that your plumbing is completely blocked, a hydro-jetting procedure may be just the things that solves your problems.

How Does Hydro-Jetting Work?

Simply put, hydro-jetting is the process of using pressurized water to clean sewer and kitchen lines. Generally, plumbers bring a van with hydro-jetting equipment to the service location. Before the hydro-jetting occurs, plumbers must clean as much of the blockage using augers and other hand tools.

Then, using various nozzle heads, pressurized water of up to 15,000 psi is shot through pipes to knock loose any material left behind by the initial cleaning.

The result is an immaculate set of pipes that will allow for easy flow. The added benefit, of course, is that the odors of rotting food and other substances will no longer linger in your home.

When Do I Need Hydro-Jetting?

Unless you own a restaurant, the chances of your needing Hydro-Jetting are slim, but not zero. Most home drains can be easily cleared by professionals using hand tools. However, kitchen drains can occasionally find themselves clogged with a mixture of food scraps, grease, and hair difficult to remove with hand tools. If you find that your drain has this or a serious sewer clog, then hydro-jetting is your best option to clear it out.

Of course, if you do own a restaurant, then hydro-jetting may be a service that you will find yourself needing regularly. Restaurants tend to deal with both high volumes of waste and irresponsible customers.

This combination often leads to clogged sewer lines. If you own a restaurant, you may want to cozy up to your local plumber, as you may be needing their service more than you would expect.

Should I Have My Home Lines Cleaned With A Hydro-Jet?

If you are dealing with several clogs in your home or one particularly stubborn one, you may want to give hydro-jetting a try. Otherwise, a simple drain cleaning should do the job. If you seem to experience these types of clogs often, especially if you run a business, it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the hydro-jetting process.

Either way, the most critical decision you can make for your plumbing comes when choosing a reliable plumbing company. A trustworthy plumber will give your drains and lines a proper inspection and advise you to take the appropriate steps for your home’s health. Arizona knows you can trust Done Plumbing & Heating for quality, affordable work. The next time you think your pipes may need hydro-jetting, trust us to take care of it.
