The Truth About the Costs of Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting is rarely the first choice solution when it comes to drain cleaning, or a backed-up pipe. Due to its higher cost relative to snaking, most homeowners won’t request a hydro-jetting service unless snaking has either already failed or been otherwise removed as a viable option to solve the problem.

So what’s the deal with hydro-jetting after all? Why is it so expensive, and is it really worth the price? Affordable Plumbing Sewer and Drain can help you answer those questions and more.

Hydro Jetting: What is it, And Why Do You Need It?

“whathydrojetting”Hydro-jetting is a method of drain or pipe cleaning that involves aiming a stream of highly pressurized water into the drain or pipe to push an obstruction out of the way.

Now, if you're thinking, "Doesn't snaking the drain do the same job with less hassle?" The answer is no. It doesn't. Hydro-jetting is often used in circumstances where the blockage is too big or too tough to be removed by an auger.

Here are some benefits of hydro-jetting services:

  • Removes everything from grease to tree roots and other debris.
  • Clears pipes of things like mineral deposits, scale buildup, soap, hair, food scraps, and organic waste.
  • Helps your piping systems last longer.
  • Prevents hazardous waste back-ups in your home.
  • Is safer to use in all kinds of pipes than other drain cleaning methods, like liquid cleaners.
  • Because of the flexibility of the hose, and the fact that it can bend and move with the individual piping system, hydro-jetting can be used to clean out pipes of every size.

How Much Does Hydro-Jetting Cost?

“costshydrojetting”The cost of an individual hydro-jetting service varies from job to job, depending on the severity of your clog as well as its location within your piping system.

Blockages that are nearer to the entrance of the pipe and are easy to remove will cost less to jet out than ones that are tougher and further back the pipe.

On average, a hydro-jetting service can range in price anywhere from $250-$600. Again, because the actual cost depends so heavily on individual cases, the best way to get an estimate for hydro-jetting is to call Affordable Plumbing Sewer and Drain today and speak with a knowledgeable plumbing professional!
