Hydro flushing and line jetting are essentially the same thing. The difference lies in the size of the sewer lines. Sewer lines 3” in diameter or less can be line jetted. Sewer lines 4” or greater in diameter should be hydro flushed. Hydro flushing works in exactly the same way as line jetting; State-of-the-art pumps and flexible heavy-duty hoses mounted with special nozzles propel ordinary water under very high pressure into the sewer line.
For both homeowners and commercial business owners, there are many benefits to hydro flushing. It effectively:
- penetrates and melts away grease
- breaks up sludge and debris.
- destroys and removes tree roots.
- cuts through and removes hard minerals.
- flushes out the entire system without digging up floors or landscaping or tearing up walls.
Hydro flushing is especially effective for homes with large tree roots growing in their sewage lines, restaurants that can accumulate a high amount of grease and commercial buildings with high volumes of sewage. If your drains are 3” or smaller in diameter, they’ll require line jetting. Either way, the high pressure of the water could damage your sewer lines and should only be performed by a licensed professional.
While there are many benefits to hydro flushing your sewer lines, it will not fix displaced or collapsed pipes. In this case, you’ll need to have your sewer lines repaired by a professional.
