Are you experiencing a stubborn blockage that you can’t clear using a snake? It’s time to try hydro jetting drain flushing!
Hydro jetting drain flushing is the process of using highly pressurized water to blast away the blockage. The water is fed through a hose, concentrated down to several small holes in specialized nozzles, and forced outward against the drain walls. The force of the water is a minimum of 3000 PSI and up to 30 gallons of water per minute. For comparison, the average kitchen faucet releases 50 PSI at 2.5-3 gallons per minute. See the difference in pressure? With the amount of force hydro jetting drain flushing applies there isn’t a blockage it can’t clear, the exception being construction materials like concrete which require will excavation.
Snaking a blockage is usually the first step, but in many cases this just punctures a hole in the blockage and will not fully clear it, leaving the blockage to accumulate and cause future issues. Here are a few situations in which hydro jetting drain flushing was used to clear stubborn blockages:
