Both hydro jetting and snaking are effective methods for clearing sewer lines, but they serve different purposes. Snaking, using a flexible auger, is better suited for removing clogs caused by debris or minor blockages. However, it may not completely clear tough obstructions like tree roots or heavy buildup. Hydro jetting, using high-pressure water streams, is highly effective at clearing stubborn clogs, tree roots, and grease buildup, providing a more thorough cleaning. It also helps prevent future clogs by scouring the pipe walls. The choice between the two methods depends on the severity and nature of the blockage, and a professional plumber can advise on the best approach.
Yes, hydro jetting is effective at removing tree roots from sewer lines. The high-pressure water streams generated during hydro jetting can break apart and flush out tree roots that have infiltrated the pipes. The force of the water can cut through the roots and clear the blockage, restoring proper flow. However, if the tree roots have caused significant damage to the pipes, additional repairs or replacement may be necessary to prevent future issues. Regular maintenance with hydro jetting can help prevent tree root intrusion and keep sewer lines clear.
Hydro jetting is generally safe on PVC pipes when performed by experienced professionals. PVC pipes are durable and can withstand the high-pressure water used in hydro jetting. However, it's crucial to ensure that the water pressure is regulated and appropriate for PVC pipes to prevent damage. Additionally, inspecting the pipes for any existing weaknesses or vulnerabilities before hydro jetting is essential to avoid potential issues. Consulting with a plumbing expert can provide guidance specific to your PVC piping system.
