Money Savings

Upfront, hydro jetting may seem like the pricier solution but in the long run it can actually save you some dough. How? Hydro jetting cleans the whole pipe, preventing future issues and their service calls. Hydro jetting is highly efficient and takes much less time compared to more traditional methods. So, if a plumber charges by the hour, this could lead to substantial savings.


The major benefits to water-jetting verses cable or snake cleaning is that water-jetting is much more effective on grease clogs and things like sludge, dirt, sand.  Where a cable just tends to pass through these items and spread them out the water-jetter is capable of actually cleaning these materials from the pipe and getting it out of the pipe rather than basically spreading it through the pipe.  It is also actually possible to cut roots faster and better with the water-jetter.

Much of the time, traditional methods of unclogging a drain like snaking can get the job done. But, they are not comparable with the effectiveness of hydro jetting. Hydro jetting is also a great way to avoid future problems with your plumbing simply because it thoroughly cleans pipes as well as unclogs them.

Environmental Benefits

Compared to the chemicals and procedures involved in traditional plumbing methods, hydro jetting is far more environmentally friendly. And, did you know it is even safe for homes and buildings positioned near water sources like rivers and lakes?


Many people might think hydro jetting is only for commercial use. However, it is more than appropriate for residential home plumbing troubles. Hydro jetting is a versatile system and works well for both large and small jobs.


At All Ways Drains we use state-of-the-art pumps to propel water through the line thus unclogging the drain. These extremely powerful, concentrated streams of water rush all the way through the pipes, thoroughly cleaning them and pushing out the blockage.

Even the toughest clogs can’t stand up to hydro jetting. But, it is important to remember hydro jetting is not for 100% clogs as this can cause flooding.
