Traditional Drain Cleaning vs. Hydro-Jetting

A back-up, complete blockage, or a slow drain is bound to happen in your home, business, or restaurant. So, do you opt for traditional drain cleaning or a hydro-jetting service? Using a sewer machine is an effective way to tackle clogs easily but it is only a temporary solution while hydro-jetting is longer-lasting but not recommended for fragile or damaged pipes.

Traditional drain cleaning by a sewer machine is a tried and true method of breaking up clogs and exposing plumbing dangers such as tree roots that have impeded the line. However, this is only a temporary solution because while it is highly effective at punching through clogs, a sewer machine won’t clean pipe walls or completely break down tree roots which can allow for blockages in the future due to debris catching on to residual build-up, grease, or scale on the pipe walls.

Hydro-jetting uses high-pressured water to blast away clogs, build-up, grease, roots, and any debris that is in your pipes or on your pipe walls to ensure that your drain lines are clean and functioning at maximum capacity. This is a highly effective way to eliminate clogs quickly and clean the pipes rather than only breaking up clogs and blockages. Hydro-jetting can be used as a preventative measure to avoid blockages and keep your pipes at maximum flow or as a reactive solution if you currently have blockages in your home or business drain lines.

If you find yourself needing traditional drain cleaning services more often than you’d like, hydro-jetting may be a better option for a longer-lasting solution.
