The Benefits of Hydro Jetting versus Traditional Rooter Machine
How Does a Rooter Machine Work?
A rooter machine, also known as a drain snake or auger, mechanically breaks up clogs and blockages in your pipe system. The machine has a rotating cable with blades or hooks at the end, which are inserted into the pipe. The device works by grabbing onto debris with the hooks and clearing clogs.
While rooter machines may be effective in some cases, they cannot withstand all types of blockages, such as those created by grease and fat buildup or solid, strong tree roots.
How is Hydro Jetting Better?
Hydro jetting is a powerful approach to clearing blockages. Using a high-pressure stream of water to cut through and blast away tree roots and other debris, this method also thoroughly cleans the interior pipe walls, helping to prevent future buildups.
A significant advantage of hydro jetting is the ability to handle a wide range of blockages, including stubborn ones that might resist traditional rooter machines. Hydro jetting is also an environmentally friendly process without the use of harsh chemicals. Its thorough cleaning process increases the longevity of your drainage system.
