Key Benefits Of Hydro Jetting
When you have less than desired water drainage or water flow, it’s usually because of buildup in your plumbing system. Depending on where the problem lies, you may not be able to fix it with conventional means like plungers or drain snakes. Hydro jetting may seem like overkill, but it’s one of the most effective methods available for clearing away stubborn clogs, and here’s why.
While traditional drain cleaning methods like drain snaking are initially effective, it’s common for residue to remain along the pipe walls, which quickly accumulates more gunk, leading to another clog. With hydro jetting, the power of the high-pressure water leaves the entire circumference of the pipe clean and in like-new condition.
Also, unlike other drain clearing methods that rely on harsh chemicals, hydro jetting is perfectly safe for your pipes and the environment since it only requires water under high pressure to get the job done.

How Hydro Jetting Works
Although highly effective at removing tough clogs, hydro jetting is a simple process similar to power washing. Your hydro jetting company ineserts a specially designed hose with a nozzle into your drain and blasts water under high pressure to remove obstructions and debris.
The typical hydro jetter shoots water at up to 5,000 PSI at up to 20 gallons per minute. The force of the water along the interior of the pipe is enough to clear debris off the walls, leaving your drain and water lines in pristine condition.
Because hydro jetting completely breaks down and removes all the gunk in your plumbing, the effects can last for several yeaers.
Hydro jetting isn’t right for all clogged pipes, so contact Pristine Plumbing, Inc. for a consultation.

When To Call A Hydro Jetting Company
When drain lines become clogged, you might be tempted to solve the problem yourself using a chemical drain cleaner from your local grocery store. This is a big mistake because the fact is that those chemical cleaners can cause serious damage to your drain pipes! It's always wiser to call a professional, rather than using chemicals and causing more damage.
As previously mentioned, hydro jetting isn’t always the best solution for your plumbing problems, but here are the most common situations where it can make an improved difference.
Lime Scale Buildup
If you live in an area with hard water, you’ve no doubt seen the effects in white, chalky buildup on your faucets and fixtures. This buildup is called lime scale and is caused by high levels of magnesium and calcium in the water, which build up over time causing clogs. If left unchecked, lime scale buildup hardens in your plumbing system, requiring you to replace the affected pipes.
Drain clogs don’t happen overnight, but build slowly over time as waste sticks to the interior walls of your plumbing gradually restricting water flow. Eventually, the pipe closes completely and you have a clog on your hands. If you have slow drains, the problem isn’t going to solve itself, and hydro jetting is a good way to restore normal water flow and prevent clogs from happening down the road.
