Despite even the best intentions, pipes are going to get dirty. Grease build-up, debris, and limescale accumulation can all take their toll on your pipes, which can lead to cracks and potential leaks. Conventional cleaning methods involve either manually clearing clogs away, which is messy and time-consuming, or rely on harsh chemicals that can damage your pipes.
Hydro jetting is an innovative, chemical-free way to clear your pipes of even the worst obstructions and clogs. It uses highly-pressured water to force any debris and clogs out from the pipe without the need for chemicals or manual labor.

The Benefits of Hydro Jetting
Hydro jetting offers significant benefits over traditional cleaning methods. The old way of removing severe clogs was to drill a hole at the point of the clog and remove it manually. Not only was this time-consuming and messy, but it also damaged the pipes, leading to an increased risk of water leaks in the future.
Hydro jetting offers the following benefits over other cleaning methods:
- Doesn't damage the integrity of your pipes
- It can clean every type and size of drain
- We can follow the layout of the pipe and clean the entirety of the line
- Clears tough clogs with ease
- Removes the accumulation of grease, organic waste, hair and soap from sewer lines
- Eliminates mineral build-up and scale deposits
- Prevents future clogs and maintains the structural integrity of your pipes for longer
- Useful for both pipe maintenance and clogged drain repair
When Do We Recommend Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting is just one tool in our arsenal for repairing clogged drains and sewer lines. Our team of expert plumbers will first evaluate your particular situation to see whether hydro jetting is the right solution. Sometimes, traditional methods like snaking or drill will work just fine, and we'll recommend those instead.
However, if you have multiple or recurring clogs, we'll recommend hydro jetting as the best way to clear out any obstructions and leave your pipes like new. We often use hydro jetting to remove chemical build up from other work, such as leak repair or corrosion repair, to prolong the life of your pipes.

How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
Hydro-jetting uses water set to around 35,000 psi to remove any obstacles in a pipe. It doesn't damage the pipes, because the stream of water follows the path of the pipe and doesn't touch the pipe walls themselves.
What makes hydro jetting so useful is that we can adapt it to any situation. We have a wide range of hoses and nozzles, suitable for any drain type, pipe, or clogged material. Whether you're looking for a once-off drain clean, or routine maintenance, we’re here to help.
