Frequently Asked Questions about Drain Jetting

Hydro jet drain cleaning is a method that uses high pressure water to remove blockages in your drains. It can work on blockages up to 100 meters away.

First, we insert a flexible cable into the problematic pipeline. Then water pressurised to 5000 psi is shot through a nozzle attachment. The cable, either coming from a unit built into one of our vans or one mounted onto a trailer, can reach a blockage up to a hundred metres away. Greasy accumulations are completely removed by the Hydrojet with no fuss and tree roots are easily sliced through with the result being a squeaky clean drain.

When using a licensed and qualified plumber, you have no reason to fear for the condition of your pipes. An inexperienced plumber using a hydro jet can potentially damage your pipes, however, with the high pressure water.

No, hydro jet cleaning is not a DIY exercise. These tools are extremely high powered and must be operated by a trained and certified professional. Someone inexperienced in using hydro jet cleaning could potentially damage pipes and make the problem worse.

Hydro jetting can’t be guaranteed to fix blocked drains 100% of the time, but it is the most effective method to clear tree roots, sewage clogs and other difficult blockages. When combined with a preliminary sewer camera inspection, hydro jetting is one of the most effective methods of cleaning and sanitising your plumbing.
