An excellent clog-relieving solution that utilizes a water blasting through high-pressure nozzles.
If you have a drain clog, or you’re worried about a clog happening, it’s a relatively simple process to deal with, right? The line simply needs to be snaked, the gunk that’s creating the obstruction gets removed, and all’s right with the world. While that sounds straightforward, an unattended clog can quickly grow as it collects hair, dirt, and other debris. Sometimes, those clogs can become serious issues — serious enough that having the line snaked simply won’t cut it.
When that happens, hydro jetting is an excellent clog-relieving solution. Used as an option before replacing the plumbing lines, the hydro jetting process involves water blasting through high-pressure nozzles. The water stream can push through blockages clogging your pipes and lines, enabling the free flow of water. Hydro jetting can be a viable choice, and when you partner with RooterGuy, we’ll present you with options that allow you to make an informed decision. More than 30 years of experience have allowed us to identify instances when hydro jetting is a smart call, and when it’s overkill. Our plumbing technicians can usually deliver an internal shine that delivers years of clear passage.
A plumbing technician will use an access point in the plumbing system and a special piece of equipment called a jetter. The jetter is made up of a water tank, a nozzle, and a pressurizing device. Our plumbing pros use the device to deliver water at extremely high pressures to scour the inside of your lines clean. A nozzle is fed into your drain or pipe and delivers a self-propelled stream that works to dissolve tough clogs and remove mineral scales and deposits. Hydro jetting works to powerfully remove these problems and more.
Hydro jetting has been proven to be an effective treatment in commercial plumbing applications, but it can also be utilized to help homeowners achieve a lasting internal shine. Our team will be able to provide video inspections to show you just how effective this service is.
While eco-friendly and effective, hydro jetting should be left to the professionals. RooterGuy is proud to serve as Denver’s trusted plumbing company for high-quality solutions, and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free, accurate estimate for your home or business.

There are several options for residential and commercial plumbing line clog removal options. Rooter Guy offers drain snaking, sewer camera inspections, drain cleaning, and hydro jetting. Hydro jetting is a preferred option in some plumbing scenarios for several reasons.
Unlike with other drain and pipe cleaning options, the residue on the pipe walls can continue to stick to the pipes, settle in pipe curves, or corrosion may occur. Having the plumbing professionals at Rooter Guy clean your lines with hydro jetting is much more effective in eliminating buildup and residue.
Rather than using toxic chemicals or other hazardous options, hydro jetting uses water to push the clog through, eliminating contact with corrosive agents or black water. With a controlled jet nozzle, our plumbers direct the flow and water pressure to clean your pipes, making sure we eliminate problems and prevent unsanitary conditions.
Water jetting harnesses the power of clean water under high pressure without the addition of harmful chemicals. This means that the water that flows through your pipes and exists into the sewer system or water treatment facility won’t harm what it comes in contact with. Reduce the toxic chemicals entering our water system by using a clean option like hydro-jetting.
Other pipe cleaning options are limited by the material the pipe is made of. For instance, corrosive agents that are meant to break down clogs can break down the pipes as well, creating weak spots. Hydro jetting can be used on all types of pipe including steel, iron, resin, clay, PVC, and more than other forms of drain cleaning can’t.

It is not advisable to conduct DIY water jetting for several reasons. One is that if the water pressure is not properly controlled, it can result in burst pipes or be ineffective at relieving the clogs. Always seek the help of a local plumbing expert to perform hydro jetting for you.
For small clogs, there is nothing wrong with snaking as a partial solution. However, hydro jetting offers more benefits than drain snaking. Hydro jetting can remove blockages deep within your pipes that an auger just can’t reach, and it flushes out any buildup. Drain snaking works best on shallow clogs, and it can’t scour the insides of your pipes.
When completed by a trained professional with calibrated devices, it’s very unlikely that hydro jetting will damage your pipes. If an older home has iron pipes that are already corroded, it is possible that hydro jetting may exacerbate the existing damage, which is why an assessment by a trained professional is critical to avoiding damage.
