Gopher Sewer & Drain offers Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning as the most efficient, thorough and reliable method of clearing clogged drain and sewer lines for both commercial and residential properties.

Commercial drain cleaning hydro jet machine

Hydro jet machines are essentially water tanks connected to hoses with specialized nozzles that direct hot or cold water at an extremely powerful velocity throughout the walls of pipes. The hoses are ideal for short or long distances, and both the hoses and nozzles are designed for varying drain types and sizes. Hydro jets are ideal for:

  • Completely removing mineral, grease and bacteria build up
  • Completely removing tree roots (unlike cable blades, which will only pull up sections of roots)
  • Long distance drain cleaning (especially for commercial sewer lines)
  • Flushing out sludge and waste for good
  • Clearing frozen lines with hot water pressure
  • Cleaning the walls of the entire pipe (as opposed to simply unclogging one area)
  • Providing the most environmentally friendly way to clean drains
  • Providing long term results (hydro jet cleanings can last for years)

FAQs on Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning

What is hydro jet drain cleaning?

Hydro jet drain cleaning, or water jetting, is the fastest and most reliable method to unclog and clean obstructed drain lines. Hydro jet machines are motors connected to water tanks that use high-pressure hoses with specialized nozzles to direct water at an extremely powerful velocity throughout the pipes.

Using hot or cold water, hydro jets can punch through thick tree roots and thaw frozen drain lines. They also clean the walls of the drain lines and often leave them in like-new condition.

How much does it cost to hydro jet a drain?

The price of hydro jetting depends on the type of drain, the severity of the clog, and the amount of time required to fully clear the line. For small drains, our pricing begins around $375 and can run up to $875 for main sewer lines.

Each plumbing system is different and various issues can arise, so please call our office for an accurate estimate if you’re considering a hydro jet cleaning service.

Is hydro jetting safe for pipes?

Hydro jetting is a generally safe procedure, but there are always risks involved any time you are snaking or jetting a line based on the condition of the pipes. If cabling a line is not effective, hydro jetting is the best option. It will fully scour the pipes and reveal any underlying problems such as broken, cracked or crumbling lines.

Is hydro jetting better than snaking?

Hydro jetting is more thorough than snaking. It provides long-term results and leaves behind more efficient plumbing systems than cabling. Snaking a line can punch through or remove a clog but will not clean the entire pipe like a hydro jet.

How long does it take to hydro jet a sewer line?

Hydro jetting a sewer line can take anywhere from an hour to all day, depending on the size and condition of the line and the obstruction.

Does hydro jetting work on roots?

Yes, hydro jetting is extremely effective in pushing tree roots out of clogged pipes.
