Snaking & Hydro jetting in San Diego
Cutting-Edge Solutions to Your Drain Problems
A plumbing snake or auger is a long and flexible metal tube that’s pushed through the drain until it reaches the clog, and then pushes through whatever is jamming the pipe. In contrast, hydro jetting is a high-pressure water system that flushes and cleans your pipes, increasing the efficiency and flow of your lines. It removes grease, sand, debris, and other buildups that occurs frequently in drain and sewer lines. Jetting is often needed when traditional snaking does not clear the blockage.

Hydro Jetting vs. Snaking: Which Is Better?
When a drain clog strikes, many homeowners stick with what they know. While drain snaking can be highly effective for minor to mid-size clogs, hydro jetting can actually provide you with a longer-lasting solution that’s better for your plumbing system, the environment, and your wallet.
Take a look at some of the differences between snaking and hydro jetting below:
- Drain snaking involves pushing an auger into the drain from a sink, tub, toilet, or cleanout until it reaches the clog. Then, a crank is used to dislodge the blockage in the pipe. The auger will either push through the blockage, cause it to break it up due to the twisting action, or get attached to it so it can then be pulled out.
- Hydro jetting uses a pressure washer (up to 3500 PSI) to clean out buildup and remove debris from the walls of your pipes, including roots and grease. This method of drain clearing is environmentally safe, economical, and quick. The process is done through a cleanout, the opening or drain that leads into your plumbing system.
The type of drain cleaning service that’s right for your home will depend on a few factors, including the size and extent of the blockage, where the clog has occurred, what type of plumbing system you have, your budget, and more.
