Hydrojetting is a method of cleaning out a plumbing system’s pipes and sewer lines. This method involves shooting water through the pipes and lines at a very high pressure so that clogs caused by buildup and residue are quickly removed.
The high pressure of the water in hydrojetting creates a force strong enough to knock loose any debris and wash it out of the system. In the hydrojetting process, water blasters are used that feature extremely high pressures, and these water blasters shoot water through pipes and sewer lines at pressures of up to 4,000 psi.

How it works
When a plumber performs hydrojetting and pipes and sewer lines, an inspection of the system will typically first be conducted to determine where the clogs are located. Then, a hose and nozzle apparatus will be put into the plumbing pipes or lines via a cleanout or opening in the system. Then, water will be blasted in until all the debris has been removed and water can once again move freely through pipes and sewer lines.
