Professional hydrojetting can clear away years of stubborn debris in your pipes! Call (256) 701-6181 to schedule an appointment. We can save you on your next service.
Hydro jet plumbing is a service that is necessary if you have a drain or sewer line that has been clogged over time with heavy-duty residue like grease, soap, or sand. After some years, these substances can build up in your drains and eventually close up the pipe so that it only partially drains. This is not the kind of blockage you can fix yourself and not even a situation where you can use a drain snake to completely unclog your drain.
Using a chemical drain cleaner, such as Drano, may seem like a logical solution when you have a clogged drain; however, this method of drain cleaning can do much more harm than good to your pipes. If you are experiencing frequent clogged drains, you will need a better solution. This is where hydrojetting comes in. Scott Plumbing will blast away debris from your pipes using this highly efficient service. If you live in Huntsville or Madison County, give us a call.

Why is Hydro Jetting a Better Alternative?
While it seems that your drain pipes are indestructible, drains that are repeatedly exposed to the lye found in chemical drain cleaners, your pipes can begin to corrode as the chemicals eat away at the lining. Chemical drain cleaners only provide short-term relief from the problem. Use of these corrosive chemicals will eventually cause very small holes that make your pipes useless.
Hydrojetting services can offer you a long term solution while being a much safer alternative to chemical drain cleaners.
What is Hydro jetting?
Hydro jetting consists of a high-pressure hose with a specialized nozzle connected to a machine that pressurizes the water, producing a powerful stream that clears the drain. Hydro jetting is usually done through a cleanout, which is an opening that allows us to clean out clogs. The water is forced down the drain, where it pushes grease, mineral build-up, hair and other debris through the drain. With a powerful enough hydro jet, tree roots can also be broken up.
How Hydro Jetting Works
Hydro jet drain cleaning can be an extremely useful long-term solution for a clogged drain that has been almost closed off from residue build-up. Once the problem has been found, our qualified team at Scott Plumbing can get right to work to unclog your drain with our hydro jet drain cleaning equipment. A hydro jet drain cleaning machine is a water powered drain cleaner that is inserted into the drain and uses 1,500 to 4,000 pounds of water pressure to clean out the blockage in your clogged drain. The cleaning head propels itself forward through the drain with 6-8 reverse jets that spray out of the back of the cleaning nozzle. When the nozzle meets the blockage, it breaks up the blockage with a powerful stream of water, when the operator pulls back on the cleaning head, the rear jets turn into cleaning jets and virtually scour the pipe clean. This is the most effective way to clean this type of clogged drain, and also the longest lasting. This kind of cleaning is especially effective for kitchen sinks, restaurants, hotels, condominium buildings, and hospitals – where this kind of blockage is more likely to occur.
