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.

Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air offers both traditional drain snaking and hydro jetting services in San Diego and throughout the surrounding areas. We have the training, tools, and expertise to provide you with the long-lasting drain cleaning solutions you need.

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.

Cutting-Edge Camera Inspections

If snaking the drain doesn’t work, and hydro jetting is insufficient as well, our team will conduct a full camera inspection. This allows us to examine the inside of your home’s plumbing system without causing any damage. Our state-of-the-art camera inspections allow us to visually see what is causing the clog, blockage, or other problem with your pipes. From there, we’ll be able to effectively address the issue and make the necessary repairs.

Tips & Advice From Our Experts

  • Improper Ducting Can Destroy Your HVAC System...And Your Utility Savings!
    Ductwork is one of the most overlooked, but most important components of your heating and air conditioning system. When our Project Managers come to do an engineering analysis, they will use Duct-a-Lator to ensure that your system is sized properly and is using the proper CFM or cubic feet per minute. When ducts are undersized they will cause system breakdowns and significant loss of efficiency. Always make sure the ducting is checked when you have an AC or heater repair or replacement your HVAC system.
  • What Causes Sewer Misalignment?

    Misalignments of sewer systems are frequently caused by ground settling which removes the bedding the pipe is laying in. Over time, the misalignment will allow wastewater to leak out of the pipe, further eroding the bed of the pipe and causing the misalignment to get worse.

    Ultimately, it will result in more severe misalignment or full collapse. This can take a while or it can happen pretty quickly.

  • How Long Does Concrete Sewer Pipe Last?
    Some sewer pipe is made from Concrete. Typically, this type of concrete pipe lasts a long time, but we do see problems start at the connections due to ground settling or tree root intrusion. Concrete pipe is susceptible to cracks – just like a concrete sidewalk – particularly when stressed from tree roots or offsets. The average lifespan of concrete sewer lines, before you start to encounter stoppage problems, is 30 years. The most common reasons for sewer line stoppages with concrete lines include offsets at connections and breaking pipe due to tree roots and ground settling.

  • High Water Pressure Is like High Blood Pressure
    The most common problem we see are plumbing leaks. Think about when you go to the doctor... What is the first thing they do? They check your blood pressure because high blood pressure ruins your arteries, kidneys, vision, and heart. If you are having problems, high blood pressure is the first thing to try and rule out. High water pressure is no different. It ruins dishwasher solenoids, faucet washers, angle stops and washing machine hoses. In fact, it puts your entire plumbing system at risk. A water pressure regulator protects your system.

  • Even Tiny Roots Cause Sewer Damage
    Tree roots are a major cause of pipe damage and should never be present in a properly functioning sewer line. Once cut, even fine, hair-like roots will grow back into the sewer line quicker. Once trees and shrubs find a source of water and nutrients (like the inside of the sewer pipe), they will vigorously attempt to re-establish roots in the pipe after cutting. Root growth outside the pipe will crush or crumble pipe as the root becomes more established, leading to a progression of pipe misalignments, bellies, and collapses.
