Powerful Hydro Jetting
Hydro jetting, alternatively referred to as jet setting, is a specialized solution for the cleaning of pipes and drains. When a drain is clogged, there are two primary options. The first is hydro jetting, which is more thorough and powerful. The second is drain snaking, which is falling out of use and does not have the same level of efficacy.
These systems use a force of 35,000 – 45,000 pounds per square inch. This amount of power is sure to provide a deep cleanse of your water supply system. The main issue is actually whether or not the pipes you have installed can withstand the pressure! Not only will it remove blockages, but it will scour the insides of pipes to remove debris, grease, and scale.
Reed Plumbing & Drainage have high-powered jet setting tools and advanced CCTV appliances to identify blockages and blow them away – literally.

What is hydro jetting?
It involves the use of high power water pressure to clean the interiors of pipes and drains. This is an effective solution that does not require major disruptions of the core water supply system. There is a special nozzle at the end of the hose that allows for powerful cleaning. They are used for serious blockages such as those found in deep sewer lines.
What are the benefits?
The following is a list of benefits:
- It breaks up sludge and debris.
- It penetrates and emulsifies grease.
- It works for all types of strong pipes.
- It cuts out hardened scale.
- It eliminates clogs in a flash.
- It pulverizes roots.
- It thoroughly cleans the inside walls of pipes.
- It flushes out the system.
This is actually one of the best methods for cleaning pipes. It might not be a bad idea to get this type of service once every couple of years to ensure that your pipes are in top working condition.
Can I do my own hydro jetting on a residential blockage?
This is a really bad idea for multiple reasons. First, unless you are a plumber, you won’t have a hydro jet. Second, even if you have one, you need to know how to find the blockage and then apply the correct pressure so nothing gets damaged. Finding the blockage can be done with a CCTV drain inspection. However, there are some basic tasks you can do, such as using a drain snake or chemical solvent. Hydro jets are called in when the blockage is strong.
What is the difference between a drain snake and a hydro jet?
A drain snake is a more affordable option in comparison to a hydro jet. Drain snakes use cable machines to remove small clogs. They are sometimes called hand augers. You can try using these before calling in professional services, provided you know the area that is clogged and think the problem is small. If the problem reoccurs, you will need to call in professional plumbers and the help of a hydro jet. We at Reed plumbing can tell you which technique is best suited to the specific problem. We have worked with thousands of customers and have observed thousands of unique plumbing scenarios. In other words, we know what works and what doesn’t.
When is hydro jetting applicable?
It is a heavy duty solution for serious blockages and is the preferred method to clean out a blocked pipe. But there are scenarios where it is not the best option. For instance, if you are not 100% sure where the blockage originates from, then you need to get a high-tech CCTV drain inspection to pinpoint the problem. If the pipes are old or made from a weaker kind of material, then they may not be right for jet setting. A drain snake might be more appropriate here. It is not the right choice if you have broken pipes. It will make the problem worse. Get in touch if you are unsure about what avenue to take in terms of your plumbing dilemma.
