How Is Hydro Jetting Different from Snaking?

Hydro jetting and snaking are both ways of dealing with drain clogs. Your plumber will help you choose which one is right for your needs based on the nature and severity of your clog. Here is a look at the differences between these two plumbing services.

Hydro jetting involves the use of a high-pressure stream of water to blast through clogs and debris in pipes, cleaning them out thoroughly. Snaking involves the use of a hand-crank tool which features either blades or a corkscrew to reach the source of the clog and remove it from the drain. Hydro jetting is effective at clearing severe clogs, but if your pipes are old, it could cause damage. Snaking is usually appropriate for minor clogs, but will do little to address serious issues.
