What is Hydro-Jetting in Houston?
Hydro-jetting in Houston is a relatively recent innovation in the plumbing industry that allows a plumber to restore your home’s drain pipes and sewer lines to like-new condition.
To complete this seemingly impossible task, the hydro-jetting in Houston machine utilizes a high-pressure (around 35,000 psi) water jet that with clear any blockages and remove all build-up inside your pipes. There are various sizes of water jet nozzles that are used depending on the situation, and the stream will remove all traces of food waste, grease, soap build up, even any un-flushable items that may have ended up in your sewer line.
What Is the Difference Between a Drain Snake and Hydro-Jetting?
The main difference between a drain snake and hydro-jetting is that the drain snake is simply an auger that is fed into the center of a clog. The drain snake is attached to a rotating drum that feeds the snake into the pipe and turns it to pull out the clog.
A drain snake is great for hard stoppages, as you don’t always know what is clogging a pipe. Tree roots cannot be removed by hydro-jetting, where a drain snake is designed to cut and dislodge any debris that may be in your plumbing. Hydro-jetting is most effective after a preliminary video inspection to determine specifically what is in the way of your water flow.
The advantage to the hydro-jetting process is that the entire surface area of the inside of the pipe is completely cleared of build-up and debris. Even areas where standard drain snakes have a problem clearing like p-traps and area drains, hydro-jetting is completely effective at removing debris!
How Often Do I Need Hydro-Jetting in Houston?
If you are what we like to call a “responsible garbage disposal owner” who tends to scrape their plates before rinsing them will likely need a hydro-jetting in Houston service call once every five years. If you’re a little less careful about what ends up in your garbage disposal or toilets, you’ll want to have it done once every two years or so.

Anyone who has rented a pressure washer for the exterior of their home or their driveway knows the deep and thorough cleaning that process provides. Hydro-Jetting in Houston is the same technology, with a working range of up to 400 feet (as opposed to the 150-foot limit of a drain snake), and the power to remove even the most difficult residue!
