How it Works

Water jetting is a simple procedure with fantastic results. Fats, oils, grease and debris can clog your drain and cause a nasty blockage and water jetting is one of the only ways to completely remove it. When a homemade or store-bought drain cleaner isn’t enough, that’s when you know you need to call the professionals at All Ways Drains.

In fact we can cut roots with our water-jetters. Many times we can cut them faster and cleaner than with standard cable machines. Water jetting is ideal for cleaning and root cutting when drains are still draining slightly, a total blockage will have to be assessed by an expert.

If we decide water jetting is the best solution, we will use state-of-the-art pumps in order to propel water through your home’s pipeline. These extremely powerful, concentrated streams of water rush all the way through the pipe, thoroughly cleaning the pipes and push out the blockage. Our trained professionals are properly trained in the use of water jetting equipment and how to direct the hoses along the walls of your pipes and effectively clean out the length of a sewer line.

Before you know it, your drains are flowing as they should!

The Benefits of Water Jetting

There are many amazing benefits to water jetting including:

  • Environmentally friendly and noxious-chemical free
  • Cost effectiveness
  • It’s preventative
  • Little down time
  • Cuts down on future service calls
  • Cleaner pipes
  • And more!

This small investment can go a long way in avoiding much larger expenses down the line. Cleaner pipes are more efficient, thus reducing water bills and increasing productivity. For example, many restaurants schedule regular water jetting in order to keep their pipes clean of grease and debris that can often sneak down the drain. These preventative measures mean you won’t have to deal with the down time and frustration that can come along with a clogged drain.

We have the tools and skills needed to unclog even the most stubborn drains. A water jet service by All Ways Drains can provide cleaner pipes, fewer service calls and less down time; providing overall cost savings and one less thing to worry about.
