What Can You Do About Plumbing Clogs?
Almost every homeowner will experience a clogged drain or pipe at some point. Dirt, debris, food, and other things that shouldn’t be put down drains get rinsed down all the time.

What Exactly Is Hydro Jetting?
Angie’s List explains how hydro jetting works, “Hydro jetting is the process of using a high-pressured flow of water to scour the interior surfaces of the plumbing pipes, removing scale, grease and other debris that’s built up inside the pipe walls over time. As opposed to rodding, where a plumber uses a tool to power a hole through the buildup, hydro jetting achieves a comprehensive cleaning of the pipes…The process of hydro jetting works to resolve a number of common plumbing problems. It successfully removes debris that accumulates in the home’s plumbing pipes due to hair, soap residue, grease and more. In addition, it resolves tree root infiltration and mineral and scale buildup in the sewer drains…In most cases, hydro jetting is a safe way to remove blockages that cause clogging. However, it is possible to cause further problems if a novice plumber employs hydro jetting in the sewer lines when tree-root penetration is significant. Always work with a plumber who will visually inspect the indoor plumbing system and the sewer lines using video camera equipment to assess the root of the problem before implementing any solution.”
