Drain Line Cleaning: Hydro Jetting vs. Snaking

Eco Pump Services technician performing grease trap cleaning

Clogs like debris, tree roots, grease, and an accumulation of hair can all cause your septic tank system to back up.  Having your drain lines cleaned out on a regular basis will keep it from clogging. There are two standard techniques to do so, which include hydro jetting and snaking. Our Ft. Lauderdale septic tank specialists use either, or both of these methods, depending on the project.

The Hydro Jetting Method

Hydro jetting is basically pressure washing the sewer line to clear out the debris that’s stuck in the pipes. Extra care should be taken to ensure that the water pressure doesn’t damage the sewer pipes.  For this reason, you should leave hydro jetting to the professionals who can properly inspect pipes beforehand, determine their strength, and ensure that they’re stable enough to withstand a hydro jetting treatment.

The Snaking Method

The snaking method uses an auger which is a long steel cable with a corkscrew-like coil at the end of it. When the auger is inserted into the sewer line, the coil at the end breaks through clogs and clears a path through the pipe.

Snaking is a great technique to use when pipes are old and fragile. However, snaking only clears a path as wide as the tip of the auger so the drain won’t be restored to a like-new flow. This is when we may snake a line to break up clogs, then clear the pipe with hydro jetting.
