Outlining the Advantages of Hydro Jetting Over Chemical Drain Cleaners

Whether it’s due to hair build-up, food particles, or more serious obstructions deep within the pipes, blocked drains can be a major nuisance to any household. Most homeowners would almost automatically reach for a chemical drain cleaner, but this method is not always the ideal solution. Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter explores the advantages of hydro jetting in Chatsworth, CA over off-the-shelf chemical cleaners.


Chemical cleaners are designed to break down clogs, but they can only do so much. In most cases, they only dissolve organic matter, such as hair or food particles. However, for more stubborn clogs caused by grease, mineral build-up, or tree roots infiltrating the sewer lines, these products may not be as effective, if at all. Hydro jetting, on the other hand, uses high-pressure water to blast through any obstruction in the pipes, leaving them clean and clear. Hydro jetting roots is also possible, cutting through them and flushing them out of the system without damaging the pipes.


Chemical drain cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can damage your pipes (especially if used frequently) and harm the environment. Once flushed down the drain, they can end up in bodies of water and contaminate them. Pipe jetting uses only water and does not involve any harmful chemicals. This makes it a safe, eco-friendly option for maintaining clean, clear pipes.


While chemical cleaners may seem like a cheaper solution upfront, they often require multiple applications to fully clear a drain. This means continuously purchasing products and potentially damaging pipes, leading to expensive repairs in the long run. Sewer jetting can efficiently clear drains with just one application, saving homeowners money on both products and potential repairs.


Hydro jetting not only clears existing clogs, but it also prevents future blockages by thoroughly cleaning the entire pipe system. This is especially beneficial for older homes with aging pipes that are more prone to clogs.
