Not sure if hydro jetting is the answer for your business? Read ahead to find the answers about how hydro jetting works.


  1. What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting (also known as water jetting) is the cleaning of clogged or obstructed sewage lines by a professional plumber, such as Rapid-Rooter. The process involves inserting a water hose into the opening of the problem pipe and using powerful forward and reverse-moving pressured streams of 3000 psi to scour the interior surfaces of the pipe and remove any blockage for efficient drainage. As the process only uses water, it is also a friendly option for the environment and local wastewater systems.


  1. Is Hydro Jetting Safe?

Hydro jetting is a plumbing option that is ultimately completely safe, but as with anything, there are considerations to be aware of. If your commercial property has older pipes, there is a potential for the power and pressure of hydro jetting to damage them. It is always recommended that a professional plumber is called in to assess your pipe structures. After their inspections, they can make the necessary adjustments to the hose’s water pressure to ensure the integrity of your pipes. Additionally, the water pressure from hydro jetting can climb quite high depending on the power of the hose, and the stream could be harmful to persons or property around it. Again, it is always recommended that a professional plumber be utilized when hydro jetting.


  1. How Effective is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is a very effective maintenance tool for pipes and plumbing, particularly for businesses such as those in the food and beverage industries. The sheer force of hydro jetting ensures that drainage occurs, and blockages are removed from your system, while also blasting away residual waste and bacteria from the interior of your pipes, therefore keeping your plumbing system moving and working cleanly and efficiently.
