The Difference Between Snaking and Hydro Jetting

 At some point in time, most homeowners will experience a clogged sewer line. This issue can be quite a nuisance, so it is essential to prevent it before it happens. Regular cleaning is an excellent preventative measure, and it is effective when it comes to eliminating soap residue, tree roots and hair, the biggest culprits of serious clogs. The two most common cleaning methods are snaking and hydro-jet pipe cleaning. If you want to choose the best option for your home, it is important to learn about each. Poole’s Plumbing can help you decide which method will be most beneficial for you.

How Hydro Jetting Works

What exactly is hydro jetting? Basically, this method utilizes a powerful water stream to get rid of any debris stuck in the sewer line. The primary tool is a hose equipped with a specialized nozzle that releases water pressurized anywhere from 3,000 to 8,000 PSI. This level of water pressure is typically sufficient to blast out debris lodged in the line. Hydro jetting has several benefits, including:

  • Versatility: This method is useful for cleaning both commercial and residential sewer lines.
  • Effectiveness: Hydro jetting is highly effective at doing its job. It ensures the pipes remain clean as well.
  • Water Only: There are no chemicals involved with hydro jetting, meaning your pipes will not have to be subject to harsh chemicals just to get rid of clogs.

It is important that hydro jetting should be left to the pros, as older and more fragile pipes can be damaged by the powerful method.

Snaking

Snaking is different than hydro jetting in that is uses a steel cable called an auger with a special tip designed to penetrate tough clogs. While this method may not be as effective as hydro jetting, it is beneficial in that it does not cause damage to pipes.

The latest and most efficient method in Drain Cleaning, Sewer Line Cleaning and maintenance that can save you money in the long run is Hydrojetting. Raleigh certified plumbers, Poole’s Plumbing specializes in this method, which actually uses the force of water to not only open clogs and buildup in your lines, but also scours the interior of the drain piping which restores full to the sewer or drain line.

A simple three step process by the Raleigh certified plumbers at Poole’s can have your sewer line flowing freely and cleaned out like no rooter possibly could do. By utilizing the Hydrojetting process, you will be getting a much longer lasting maintenance option, as whether you are at a commercial or residential location you will not need this clearing process done as frequently. Also, instead of just punching a hole through the build up as a cable-type rooter would do, Hydrojetting utilizes its water stream to scour the sewer line and remove debris and sludge, opening up more capacity within the line. While the initial process may cost a bit more, Hydrojetting will save you in the long run as you simply will not need to have a Drain Cleaning or Sewer Line Cleaning as frequently as you would using the conventional rooter method. On average, the typical time before the next required maintenance to a sewer line is around four times longer than with cable-type rooter services. Another advantage to hydrojetting over using a rooter is that by jetting you simply clear out more debris from the line. While it isn’t a permanent solution, the powerful stream will get rid of anything from grease buildup to tree roots which cause your line to flow slowly.
