Most people are familiar with plumbing snakes and plungers for minor clogs. But If the clog is thick and won’t budge, you may need a stronger and more effective solution such as a Hydro Jet. A Hydro Jet is a portable machine that uses a high pressure hose. The hose has a specialized nozzle with multiple outlets around it that produce very powerful blast jets of water in all directions removing stubborn, thick buildup as it passes through. These jets have enough power to clear even the most toughest clogs in your drains and sewer lines breaking up the clog and allowing it to flow freely through the pipe.
Hydro Jet is not the first option for clearing a clog. An inspection using a camera should be performed first to make sure the pipe doesn’t have damage and can withstand the power of the Hydro Jet. French Connection Plumbing certified, professional plumbing technicians have access to the latest diagnostic and drain cleaning equipment to solve your issues fast.
The Hydro Jet can also be used for cleaning storm drains. When debris accumulates after a heavy downpour, tree limbs, leaves and other debris can clog up your storm drains.
A plumber's snake or drain snake is a slender, flexible auger used to dislodge clogs. It’s usually the next step for a difficult clog that couldn’t be loosened with a plunger. Snaking is an effective method that’s been used for years to clear basic clogs and increase the flow of water through the drain pipes. What you need to be cautious of is a recurring issues. The snake can punch a hole through the clog, but it may not remove everything leaving you with a mother clog in a few months.
