Most homeowners don’t even know what a Hydro Jetting machine is, but it’s coming around. While some say water Jetting dates as far back as the 1950s, it has only become a large part of the plumbing industry in the last 30 years. Why don’t we use Hydro Jetter on every drain? Hydro jetting equipment is expensive and requires more training. Additionally, it takes much more time to hydro jet a drainpipe. In turn, it costs more for the home or business owner. Your technician will use a plumber’s snake before using the hydro jetting machine, especially if the drain is a single drain such as a toilet. If the problem is much worse, such as roots or a large obstruction, then the Hydro jetter is brought in.
