Hydro-Jetting | Sewer Drain Cleaning

What is Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting is a method of clearing drain clogs using pressurized water. A specialized nozzle on a water hose attached to the hydro-jetting machine spews out high-pressure water. The nozzle enters the drain from an opening such as a toilet, a cleanout, or a roof vent. The high-pressure jet of water cleans the drain by flushing out obstructions and also cleaning the pipe’s surface.

When is the best time to Hydro-Jet

We do not think too much about drains until they start causing problems. Slowly draining bathtubs, toilets, and sinks start to get annoying and unsanitary to use. If we are lucky, a plunger takes care of the problem. You may even get a professional to use a snake cable, a great tool, to open the clog. Snake cable pokes through the blockage and pushes the obstruction down the drain. The new opening makes way for water to continue draining until the drain starts to slow again and the clog eventually builds back up. A plunger or plumber’s snake may often clear a clogged drain of any hair or other material that’s blocking the pipe, however, it won’t do much to clean out any buildups on the walls of the pipes.
Hydro-jetting, however, does more by clearing the clog and cleaning the drain around the clog to prevent future clog build up. The buildups take away draining space, slowing down the flow of water, and making it easier for clogs to close up the drain. While snaking clears the clog by taking care of the symptom(s), hydro-jetting takes it a step further by removing the cause of the buildup(s). Hydro-jetted drain stays cleared longer. The main difference between the use of cable and the use of a Hydro-Jetter is the quality and longevity of the provided solution.


If you are in charge of commercial properties such as restaurants, apartment complexes, shopping malls, plazas, or parks that have heavy drain usage then you should definitely get a professional to scope out the sewer drain system for a recommendation on a regular preventative maintenance Hydro-Jetting. Having the pipes cleaned out regularly will go a long way by preventing costly clogs and slow drains issues.
Are you dealing with a problematic drain which won’t stay cleared even after multiple snaking attempts? Consider using hydro-jetting for the next time you come across drain issues in your home. Consider introducing the Hydro-Jetting method to the condo management.

Drain Clogs | Prevention Tips

Drain Clogs | Prevention Tips


Drain clogs are a major inconvenience. Drain backups can be highly unpleasant. Many things can lead to them as well. If you want to protect yourself from the trouble a clogged drain can cause, follow some of these simple suggestions and prolong the health of your sewer drains.


Drains are built to carry waste out of your home, but all wastes are not meant to travel down sewer drains. If you are serious about stopping pesky drain clogs then you need to be more careful about the things that find their way inside of your drains. The basic rule is that you should not place things inside the drains that do not dissolve in water.


Even though the kitchen sink has a ‘garbage’ disposal, do not dispose of garbage here. Throw away large items such as bones, fruit pits, pieces of vegetables, rice, pasta in an actual garbage. Large pieces of garbage may get stuck in your kitchen line or travel down to the main line.

Grease and kitchen drain just aren’t a good mix. Since grease, oil, and butter change density with temperature, they can stick to the drain’s inner surface and start catching remnants of food. Excessive amounts of grease can with time bring on sewer obstructions. This is due to the fact that plumbing systems do not have the ability to deconstruct grease.


Soap and hair regularly meet inside of shower and bathtub drains. If not taken care of they accumulate into extensive drain clogs. They can quickly cause water to back up into the tub when in use. These clogs sometimes become so significant that you have to rely on a professional to take care of them. Use mesh screen ‘hair catcher’ to minimize the amount of hair going inside the drain and clean up the excess hair every couple of shower usage.
In the toilet, do not flush anything other than body waste and toilet paper. Try to use minimal toilet paper per flush. ‘Flushable’ wipes do not dissolve very well and are not really flushable. Never flush feminine hygiene products, instead dispose of them in a trashcan.


Once a clog starts to form, the growth is exponential. As the clog gets bigger, it can catch and hold on to larger debris. Drain clogs growth means the inner surface of a drain pipe gets smaller and tighter. Eventually, to get drains back to their normal functions, a professional is required.
Removing or repairing considerable obstructions can sometimes be extremely expensive, so it is in your best interest to maintain your drain’s function and always be aware of how your drain is aging. Symptoms become more obvious as drains are increasingly obstructed. If you suspect that your drain may require professional attention however you are not sure, then start by getting it inspected.


Pay attention to the signals your home’s drain is giving you. Your drain may be starting to clog if water accumulates in your bathtub, sink, toilet or if flushing one toilet causes water to bubble over at another toilet. Find out whether or not your drains are starting to clog; video inspect your sewer drains. AAJDS can provide you with a video recording of your drains.
