Pipes do a lot of work, and they do it non-stop and year-round. So, when sewer or drain lines need to be cleared, the method you choose can make a big difference in the results you'll get. At Discount Drain Cleaning LV, we specialize in both drain snaking and hydro jetting in Summerlin, NV. Below, we compare these two drain cleaning options.
What Is Drain Snaking?
A thin, flexible tool known as an auger is what's used with drain snaking. Operated with a hand-crank or motor, the "snake" has a wire with gaps between coils to help clear away debris. There's also an alternative drain snaking method called air snaking that we use that's done with pressurized air.
What Is Hydro Jetting?
Also referred to as sewer or pipe jetting, hydro jetting is a specialized pipe cleaning method. It's done with a high-pressure hose and attached nozzle. A machine attached to the hose pushes the pressurized water through the pipe. The power of the water clears away all types of debris, including tree roots and caked on pipe scale or sediment.
Which Method Is Right for Your Needs?
Some pipes aren't stable enough to handle sewer jetting. In these cases, drain snaking is normally the recommended option since it can be done in a gentler way. However, it can still produce the desired results when professionally and safely done.
Drain snaking tends to be recommended for minor or moderate clogs, or times when the main goal is to quickly clear the drain. Hydro jetting is often recommended when there are stubborn clogs, debris that's not easily reachable with snaking, or tree roots that need to be broken up and flushed out.
