How Hydro Jetting Works

Did you know? Gallegos Plumbing is the most experienced and qualified plumbing company in Ventura County with the highest quality equipment for hydro jetting drains from 1.5” up to 8.”

Keep in mind that residential drains only measure 1.5” to possibly 6” on your main sewer line. It’s a common misconception that hydro jetting is only for commercial jobs, but it’s just as useful for residential plumbing issues. At Gallegos Plumbing, we offer up the thorough hydro-jet drain and sewer cleaning for both residential and commercial properties throughout Ventura County and surrounding areas.

Hydro jet cleaning services save homeowners and property managers time and money. All homes and buildings end up with slow or clogged sewers and drain at some point. Materials and particulate matter get stuck in drains and toilets more often than not, while grease, minerals, and other debris can build up in your pipes over time. When it comes to getting rid of a slow or clogged drain with build-up and blockages, there are many different approaches to fixing the plumbing issue, but none compare to hydro jetting.

Hydro jetting uses streams of high-pressure water to cut through clogs and blockages in sewer drains, while also remaining the best way to prevent any future clogging issues. Since hydro jetting thoroughly clears pipes, you end up doing your plumbing system and home a solid, clean favor. At Gallegos Plumbing, we have over 20 years of plumbing experience, including operating hydro jetting equipment and clearing pipes and main sewer lines of any scope.

The Hydro Jetting Process Step-By-Step

If your pipes and drains encounter severe or frequent clogs or slow draining, it might be time to have your main sewer line cleared by a hydro jet plumbing professional. When you contact your local plumbing contractor for hydro jet drain and sewer cleaning services, most homeowners are surprised at just how efficient and effective the process really is. 

Here is a list of the 3 step process hydro jetting follows:

Step 1: Sewer Line Inspection

First, one of our professional plumbers will visit your home or building and access the main sewer line to perform a video camera inspection, which checks for any damaged or broken pipes. Next, video inspection will identify the areas and nature of any clogs or blockages. If the line is completely blocked at this stage, the plumbing technician may need to do a mechanical rooting to re-establish Waterflow, providing visibility for the video inspection.

Step 2: Pressure Jetting The Line

After the inspection and diagnostic, your plumbing technician will insert a special hose and cleaning head that delivers 7,000 to 60,000 psi of water pressure through your pipes and main sewer line. The cleaning head is strategically placed throughout the hose’s run to address clogs, blockages, and other problem areas. More often than not, several passes are made to fully clean away tough blockages and residue build-up, including but not limited to tree roots, grease, gunk, and sludge.

Step 3: Quality Inspection

After hydro-jetting thoroughly, the sewer line is once again inspected with a video camera to ensure that all build-up, blockages, and clogs have been removed, so your pipes are clear and your entire plumbing system can operate at peak performance.

Keep in mind that high-pressure hydro jetting is the best clearing method, completing 2 ultimate objectives:

  • The break-up and flushing of mineral deposits and other debris that are blocking your sewer line flow, bursting open even the toughest of blockages.
  • A pressure washing of sewer line and pipe walls while also deep cleaning the full diameter of the pipe, flushing debris and leaving lines clear without damaging them.

Why Opt For Hydro Jet Plumbing Services?

When it comes to your pipes, lines, and plumbing system, Gallegos Plumbing believes in a job done right the first time. Our team of plumbing contractors stay on the cutting-edge of equipment and techniques to deliver results and solutions that add ease and efficiency to maintaining the infrastructure of your home or building. Hydro jetting costs less time and money than traditional and manual methods. Here is a full list of benefits you receive when you opt for hydro jet drain cleaning and sewer cleaning services!

Thorough Pipe Cleaning & Clearing

A build-up of grease, silt, fats, soap, detergent, dirt, mineral deposits, sludge, and other organic materials inside your pipes are more often than not the precursor to recurring clogs and slow draining. Most of the time, a rotating snake is only capable of punching a hole in the clog to temporarily restore flow. However, this doesn’t address all of the factors and build-up that are causing your pipe blockages. As mentioned before hydro jetting clears pipes fully, ensuring they are completely clean and free of build-up and residue. Keep in mind that hydro jetting can also be used to remove tree roots invading your sewer lines without having to dig up your yard or property!

Consistent Accuracy

One of the best things about hydro jetting is the ability of the equipment and technician to blast a stream of high-pressure water that goes through the sewer system, spinning both water and sand from multiple angles to ensure drain pipes are consistently clean and clear throughout 360 degrees. This is particularly useful when clearing lines in older homes or buildings with corroded pipes. Hydro jetting provides a solution that respects the integrity and infrastructure of your property, eliminating any chance of damaging or bursting pipes.

Completely Removes Residue, Build-Up

Hydro jetting is known to be more efficient than many other sewer line and drain cleaning methods. With the use of high-pressure water, this method is able to travel deeply and fully into pipes to flush out debris, build-up, tree roots, rocks, minerals, and any other obstructions that cause blockages and clogs and leave a residue. With the right tools and technology, our plumbing professionals will determine the appropriate pressure force to remove debris without damaging your pipes or main sewer lines.

Sanitary & Bacteria-Free

The high-pressure water hose used for hydro jetting is not only responsible for removing grease, soap, scum, and other build-up, but also any bacteria settled within your drains from your kitchen or bathroom, which can cause a plethora of structural and plumbing issues. If you’re experiencing consistently smelly drains, hydro jetting will most likely eliminate the cause, leaving your pipes and drains clean and fresh.

Provides Mobility

It’s important to note that pipes in older homes can be precarious and unstable. Manual pipe repair can prove to be very dangerous in these cases, causing extensive damage and even more costly repairs throughout your building or home. Because the hydro jet water hose enters directly into your pipes and sewer line, the trickiest places in your plumbing system can be cleaned and cleared without having to move or navigate sensitive structures.

Long-Lasting Results

Because of the powerful pressure of water hydro jetting provides, it is actually more difficult for debris and grime to build-up afterwards when your pipes and lines are completely clean and clear, making your plumbing system more effective for a longer period of time.

Savvy Preventative Maintenance

Even if you don’t currently have a clog in your plumbing system, hydro jetting is one of the best choices for preventative maintenance when it comes to your plumbing. It’s worth it to clear away minor amounts of grease, grime, and other debris in order to avoid major clogs and blockages later in the future. In fact, we recommend that you schedule hydro jetting services about once a year as a preventative measure for your pipes and main sewer lines, ultimately saving you time, money, and stress further down the road.

The Most Effective Way To Unclog Drains

Drain clogs becomes a problem for residential and commercial property owners at some point. It’s inevitable that materials will get stuck in your sink, drains, toilets, showers, and you main sewer line with consistent usage, often resulting in blockages and even damage to your home or building. If your plunger won’t move the clog, contact your local plumbing professionals to inspect the cause and scope of the issue and offer a solution that’s effective for your plumbing system–and your wallet.

No More Pipe Blockages

In most cases, hydro jetting is an alternative plumbing technique compared to regular snaking or rooting, targeting blockages in sewer drains, yard area drains, and storm drains. At approximately 3,500 psi, hydro jetting can cut through the toughest debris and blockages. While this method is typically used for plumbing systems in restaurants and commercial buildings where grease, food waste, or industrial debris are involved, hydro jetting is also ultimately effective for private residences, offering homeowners efficient, commercial-grade relief.
