Hydro-Jetting Services in Omaha NE

There are several drains inside of your home and all of them are subject to clogs and build-up. Depending on which room in the home the drain is located and which materials are routinely rinsed down it, the clogs and residue that develop can be very stubborn to remove.

In the plumbing industry, drain cleaning has evolved over the years and the latest technology is also the industry standard. In past, when a client had a clogged drain or, needed residue removed from the inside of their pipes the only options were to use a plumbing snake or an auger. Both of these tools are designed to push a metal coil or ball through the pipes using a long metal hose. But, these tools can only push the material that they touch. In other words, the thick residue that is stuck to the inside walls of your pipes gets left behind because the snake or auger only scrapes by it.

Cut to the present and the latest drain cleaning technology – ironically – uses water to thoroughly clean clogs and residue from your pipes. This technique is called Hydro-Jetting and it is the only way to get your pipes completely rid of all residue that has accumulated.

Hydro-Jetting works great for all drains and pipes in your home including:

  • Kitchen sink
  • Bathroom sink
  • Bathtub
  • Shower
  • Floor drains

How does hydro-jetting service work?

Hydro-Jetting works similarly to a snake or auger in that a hose is run through your pipes. However, instead of a ball of coil being at the front of the hose, a stream of water is shooting out at 1500 to 4,000 pounds per minute. This high level of water pressure beats against the residue and clogs and chips away the solids into smaller pieces, which are then washed through the pipe. Hydro-Jetting works to break down all types of residue including:

  • Grease
  • Tree roots
  • Cat litter
  • Sand
  • Sediment
  • Health and Beauty product residue
  • Foreign objects

The first step in the process is to have your drain and sewer lines inspected using a video camera, which gives real-time information and location about the severity of the clog and residue. This gives a better picture of the overall needs and how best to proceed next.

Then, the Hydro-Jetting hose is inserted into the pipe and the machine is turned on, initiating the 1500 to 4,000 pounds per minute of water pressure. As the cleaning head moves through the line, special attention is paid to problem areas identified on the video.

Finally, the line is inspected again using the video camera equipment to make sure that all residue and clogs have been thoroughly removed. In many cases Hydro-Jetting will return drain and sewer lines to like-new condition leaving behind only a clean and clear line.

Why should I use a Hydro-Jetting service?

  1. It works better than other options. Hydro-Jetting is the best maintenance option available today. Your drain and sewer systems are used several times per day and residue is constantly accumulating. With other drain cleaning options you are simply poking a hole through the residue, however, with Hydro-Jetting you are completely cleaning all residue and clogs away. While you will need to have more than one Hydro-Jetting treatment during the lifetime of your plumbing line, it is a far superior option.
  2. It lasts longer than other options. When a snake or auger is used to clear a clog, the residue that has built up in the pipes is only scraped a little and most of it left behind. While the clog has been moved through and water flow restored, this is a short-term solution because the residue will continue to accumulate. With Hydro-Jetting, all residue and clogs are removed leaving pipes in like-new condition.
  3. It is more cost-effective than other options. Because Hydro-Jetting is a more long-term solution, you are getting more benefit for your investment and you won’t need to have service as often. This makes Hydro-Jetting the more cost-effective option for drain cleaning.
