Hydrojet Drain Cleaning

Ben’s Plumbing uses cutting-edge drain cleaning equipment to ensure that the drains in your home and business premises remain free-flowing. Our advanced hydro-jetting machines are a great alternative to traditional drain cleaning methods such as rooting and snaking. When the sewer clogging becomes so severe that conventional drain cleaning methods are ineffective, our hydro-jetting service becomes a powerful and highly effective way to remove all blockages from your pipes.

Serving the greater Seattle and Eastside communities, our drain experts utilize modern techniques and tools, such as video inspections, to solve issues like clogged drains, leaking pipes, broken pipes, and other sewer dilemmas.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro Jetting is a highly advanced and effective technique to remove blockages from clogged drains and sewer lines. This technique uses an engine-powered water pressure system that forces a jet of highly pressurized water through a pipe or drain system. The water is propelled at an extremely high pressure of 4000 PSI (pounds per square inch), effectively clearing debris, grease, oil, mineral buildup, hair, toys, and even the most stubborn obstructions caused by tree roots. In addition, the high-pressure water jets also clean away the coating of dirt on the inner walls of the pipes, leaving your lines as good as new.

Clear Difficult Pipe Clogs

Most homeowners tend to neglect their drains until disaster strikes. However, clogs can develop much earlier due to the gradual accumulation of oil, grease, hair, toys, and other objects that may get flushed down the drain. Severe clogs can even block the central drain pipes, including sewers, which may result in wastewater backups from toilets and other drains, causing significant damage to the plumbing system and the home.

While traditional drain cleaning and unclogging methods like rooting and snaking can be effective against loose and minor clogs, they may only work on challenging pipe clogs.

We provide advanced cleaning and hydro jetting services that are cost-effective, eco-friendly, and designed to clear even the most challenging pipe clogs. Our drain experts have the skills and tools to perform residential and commercial sewer inspections, ensuring that problems are detected and repaired quickly.

What Kind of Clogs Can Hydro Jetting Handle?

Hydro jetting is an effective and versatile method to clear various clogs and blockages from plumbing and drainage systems. It utilizes high-pressure water jets to break up and remove mineral deposits, debris, sediment, food waste, grease, and other obstructions from pipes and drains. It is an ideal technique for maintaining clean and free-flowing pipes.

Mineral and Scale Deposits: In areas with hard water problems, it is common to have mineral and scale deposits develop in drain pipes. Hydro jetting can remove these clogs effectively.
Sediment Buildup: It is normal for sand, dirt, and sediment to build up in pipes, especially sewer pipes. A quick hydro jetting service can clear away these clogs.
Soap and Hair: Soap and hair clogs are common in residential bathroom drains and can be cleared through hydro jetting.
Tree Roots: The highly pressurized water from the hydro jet can cut through tree roots inside the sewer lines.
Grease Buildup: In kitchen drains, grease, oil, and fat buildup are normal. Hydro jetting can easily cut through these materials.
Small Foreign Objects: Small objects such as toiletries or toys can clog drain pipes. Hydro jetting can help clear these objects away and restore free-flowing drains.

Hydro jetting is a highly effective method for removing clogs from your drain. To ensure the hydro jetting process is conducted safely and efficiently, it is essential to have your drains inspected by an experienced hydro jetting technician.

Our skilled drain technicians have the tools and expertise to inspect residential and commercial sewers with a video camera inspection. The video inspection cameras are valuable tools for plumbers and technicians to visually assess the condition of plumbing pipes and sewer lines, diagnose problems accurately, and plan appropriate repairs or maintenance actions. This tool enables them to identify and resolve issues effectively and reliably. With trained technicians, clearing a clogged pipe can take minutes instead of hours or days compared to other solutions.

Hydro Jetting Pricing

Hydro jetting is a cost-effective and long-lasting method to clear your drains of all kinds of clogs. It is a non-invasive method of drain and sewer cleaning, which means no digging or wall tearing is involved, making the whole process even more affordable.

The cost of hydro jetting depends on whether hydro jetting is required for the sewer line or the drain pipes. We typically do a video inspection to determine the location and severity of the blockage before giving you an estimate for the hydro jetting price.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I do hydro jetting myself?

Although it may be tempting to save money by attempting DIY hydro jetting, the risks and potential consequences outweigh the benefits. It’s best to leave hydro jetting to trained and experienced professionals like Ben’s Plumbing.

A qualified technician will have the proper equipment, expertise, and safety protocols to perform the service safely and effectively. Hiring a qualified plumbing company for hydro jetting ensures that the technique is conducted correctly, minimizes the risk of damage to the plumbing system, and provides optimal results.

Most assessments start with a visual inspection using a video inspection camera to visually view the inside of your pipes and drains. The camera captures high-definition video footage of the interior of the pipe, allowing the trained technician to see any issues or obstructions that may be present.  Homeowners are not set up to perform this initial visual inspection.

Is sewer jetting worth it?

While sewer hydro jetting may have a higher upfront cost than traditional methods, it offers several advantages in effectiveness, longevity, and cost savings over time.
Homeowners and businesses should consider their specific circumstances and consult with a qualified plumbing professional, like Ben’s Plumbing, to determine the most cost-effective solution for their needs.

Hydro jetting is a highly effective way of cleaning sewer lines and preventing future blockages. It uses high-pressure water jets to clear debris, grease buildup, and tree roots from the interior of sewer pipes, restoring proper flow and function. This technique provides immediate relief from clogs and backups and offers long-term benefits by preventing costly repairs and preserving the integrity of your sewer system.

Whether hydro jetting is worth it depends on factors such as the age and condition of your sewer lines, the frequency of blockages or backups you’re experiencing, and your budget. If you’re dealing with recurring sewer line issues or want to maintain your sewer system to avoid future problems proactively, sewer jetting may be a worthwhile investment.

Is hydro jetting better than snaking?

It is essential to understand the type of clog you have to determine the appropriate service for your needs. Knowing the kind of clog you have will dictate which method best solves your problem. If you are experiencing issues with your drain or sewer line, it is best to consult a drain specialist like Ben’s Plumbing. Our technicians have specialized knowledge, advanced equipment, and expertise in preventative maintenance, adhere to regulations, employ risk mitigation practices, and are committed to customer satisfaction.

We will evaluate the nature and severity of your drain issues to determine whether snaking or hydro jetting is the most appropriate method. Factors that may determine the best approach include an initial inspection of your drain or sewer line using a video inspection camera or other diagnostic tools, the nature and severity of the blockage, and the condition of your pipes.

At Ben’s Plumbing, we may recommend hydro jetting as a preventative maintenance measure, even if snaking is insufficient to clear the blockage. Hydro jetting effectively cleans the pipes’ interior, removing buildup and debris that could cause future blockages and backups.

Will water jetting clear roots?

Yes, an experienced plumber or drain technician can use a hydro jetter as an effective way to flush out tree roots. But it only sometimes works. Tree roots can cause severe blockages and damage underground sewer lines if they invade the pipes. Hydro jetting can penetrate and break apart the roots, removing the obstruction and preventing further root intrusion into your pipes. Hydro jetting can produce impressive pressures of up to 4,000 PSI.

Tree roots can grow very thick, and hydro jetting tends to be more effective on newer tree roots that are thinner and have had less time to develop. Thicker tree roots are unlikely to be broken up by sheer water pressure, even at 4,000 PSI.

It’s important to note that hydro jetting works best when most of the pipe remains intact. If the sewer or drain pipe is already damaged, the pressure of the hydro jet can cause further harm, meaning that you may need to replace more of it. Additionally, some pipes, such as thin PVC, cannot withstand hydro jetting, even if they are in good working condition.

Ben's Plumbing is AWESOME! They are very responsive, very flexible, very communicative and great to work with! The team had great knowledge and provided suggestions over the phone to attempt to unclog a pipe. They were able to squeeze me into their schedule and it was great because they helped resolve an issue before it became a larger issue. Brian came out and helped provided some preventative support as well. Great, honest people and I recommend them 1000%!

Ben is always the guy I want on the job, and for the past couple years he's been quick, responsive, and a professional at the work I've needed him to get done for me. He's the local guy that always has your best interest in mind - for example this last testing work he did, he noticed that whoever performed my last sprinkler testing forgot to turn the system back on! He truly caught & made a life-saving fix for us, which shows his professional knowledge and attention to what's going on around him. Thanks again for the great work and conversation, Ben, see you next year I hope!

Our water heater decided to start leaking at 3pm on a Friday and the team at Ben's Plumbing got back to me quickly, got me a bid that wasnt outrageous, and scheduled me for their first slot on Monday morning. The installers arrived on time, were quick, thoughtful, and did great work. I'd totally recommend Ben's Plumbing to anyone.

Nic from Ben’s Plumbing was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING fixing the leak from our toilet yesterday with skill and finesse! Upon arrival, he immediately expertly assessed the problem(s) and proposed an excellent approach, with options, to resolve the issues. I had complete confidence in his capability to handle the expected and unexpected with this repair. I highly, highly recommend Nic (and Ben’s Plumbing) for any work, and we will be coming back again for additional projects and needed repairs at our house. Nic is an excellent communicator and explained everything clearly to a plumbing novice, answered all of my questions, was extraordinarily neat in opening up the drywall and then tidying up at the end of his work. Because of the blessing to me of Nic, I can now sleep peacefully at night knowing that a trustworthy repair has been completed. Thank you, Nic, and Ben’s Plumbing!

"I hired Ben's to take care of the plumbing for two bathroom fluffs in our home - the first visit involved removing the old faucets and the second visit was to install new faucets and a (tricky) Kohler Reach toilet. I can't remember the first plumber's name, but Nick did the installs and they were both great to work with"
