It Cleans Your Pipes

The main benefit of hydro jetting is its ability to thoroughly clean and de-clog your pipes and drains. Hydro jetting uses pressurized water at about 4000 psi (pounds per square inch). This is enough pressure to blast through and remove even the toughest clogs, as well as any smaller particles. Hydro jetting doesn't just poke a hole in your clog and then leave it to accumulate again. Instead, it blasts out all of the junk in your pipes (including tree roots) to leave your pipes like new on the inside.

It's Eco-Friendly

While it's very true that hydro jetting can use a lot of water, especially if your clog is a tough one, it doesn't use any harmful chemicals that can get into the environment. Since all water is recycled here on earth via the water cycle, the water that you use to clear your clog will be eventually cleaned and reused again, creating no waste as well.

It's Gentle on Your Pipes

While hydro jetting can break older pipes due to the pressurized water, the water itself is extremely gentle on your pipes, as opposed to harsh chemicals that can cause your pipes to corrode if they have not been thoroughly cleaned. Furthermore, a hose is what is used to clean your pipes. These hoses are usually made out of plastic, so you won't have to worry about any damage being done to your pipes. With hydro jetting, you don't have to replace any piping either. In addition, hydro jetting allows for the hard-to-reach places to be cleared of clogs as well since the hoses are extremely flexible.

It's Long-Lasting

When your pipes are clogged, you may have noticed that you had to call your local Los Angeles plumber frequently for repeated clogs. This was because the plumbing company was probably using a snake. A snake works by punching a hole in your clog, which allows the water to drain, but it leaves some of the built-up residue on the pipe walls. This in turn is a magnet for new residue to collect, eventually filling that hole. With hydro jetting, that same clog is completely blasted away, leaving behind no residue. Thus, there is no place for new residue to build up. This means you won't have to call your Los Angeles emergency plumber for clogged drain service any time soon.
