If you have a drain that keeps getting clogged up, it is time to call in the professionals. When your at-home drain methods no longer work to clear the clog in your drain, you need to bring in some professionals to get your drain clean and flowing again.

When you call in a professional plumber to get rid of the clog in your drains, you should opt to have your drains hydro jetted instead of snaked. Hydro jetting is the process of sending high-pressured water through your drains, whereas snaking your drains it uses a long metal cord that is attached to the roller to push through the clog in your drain.

Hydro Jetting Is Effective on All Pipes

One of the reasons you should consider using hydro jetting instead of snaking to clean your pipes and get rid of the clog is because hydro jetting is designed to work effectively with all sizes of pipes. If the pipe has a small diameter or if the pipe has a large diameter, a hydro jet will effectively clean the pipe.

The same is not true when it comes to using a plumbing snake. The effectiveness of a plumbing snake depends upon the diameter of the tip of the tool. If the tip of the tool is significantly smaller than the pipe it is passing through, it will not be able to effectively clear the clog. If the pipe is smaller than the tip of the tool, the tool will not be able to go very far into the pipe and will not effectively clean the pipe.

Hydro Jetting Cleans the Entire Pipe
