What Is Hydrojetting And How Does It Work?
Optimizing Your Concord, CA
Sewer System

Your Ultimate Guide To Maintaining
Your Sewer In The East Bay Area


When the job’s just too big for a drain snake, hydrojetting is the best and most efficient way to clean out your sewer line.

While a drain snake is usually sufficient for loosening solid clogs, such as tree roots, feminine hygiene products, and toilet paper buildup, hydrojetting is the only way to fully scour semi-solid waste from your sewer line, such as the sludge that builds up over time and can cause blockages and complications for your sewer system.

Hydrojetting uses high-powered water pressure to strip away the blockage. And while most East Bay Area plumbers use 1500 PSI, we use 4000 PSI – ensuring nothing gets past our high-pressure hydrojetter!

Avalon Rooter provides the best, most powerful hydrojetting in Concord, CA.


How Does Hydrojetting Work?

In simplest terms, hydrojetting uses high-pressure water to scour the sludge and other blockages out of pipes, fully cleaning them out. Hydrojetting works best for viscous sludge and semi-solid blockages (such as hair, scale buildup, and grease) that a standard drain snake just can’t get.

A hydrojetting machine has a large tank of water, a motor, and a long hose with a nozzle. When the engine is on, the motor forces water through the hose and scours your drains and sewer line.

Why Does Water Pressure Matter In Hydrojetting?

It’s simple — the higher the water pressure, the more powerful the hydrojetter and, therefore, the more thorough the cleaning. While most East Bay Area plumbers use hydrojetters with 1500 PSI, we use the Brute Jetter, which uses a powerful 4000 PSI. The Brute Jetter can hold 100 gallons of water and discharge 9 gallons per minute – how’s that for a powerful clean?

Why does high water pressure matter so much? Sludge can become extremely hard to remove, even to the point when lower water pressures like 1500 PSI can’t get it. Sludge can also form deep in your pipes and can be inaccessible to hydrojetters with lower water pressure.

The higher the water pressure, the more accurate and thorough the cleaning – no matter how deep or thick your pipes are.

Why? Because we at Avalon Rooter believe our customers deserve the best and most thorough cleaning.


What Can Hydrojetting Remove?

4000 PSI hydrojetting can remove almost anything from nearly any drain or pipe, even commercial drains or pipes up to 6 inches thick.

High-pressure hydrojetting can remove whatever ends up in your pipes. This includes:

  • Toilet paper or paper towels
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Built-up grease
  • Tree roots
  • Sludge
  • Hair
  • Silt

Does Hydrojetting Have To Be Done By
A Professional, Or Can I DIY The Job?

As simple as hydrojetting can seem, the high water pressure – especially 4000 PSI – can damage or even break your pipes if done by amateurs. Professionals know how to use hydrojetting efficiently and carefully so your pipes are clean, clear, intact, and undamaged.


How Often Do I Need Hydrojetting For
My Concord, CA Sewer System?

Regularly hydrojetting your pipes and drains is essential for extending the lifespan of your residential or commercial sewer system. While the needs of every homeowner differ, it’s generally advised to hydrojet your sewer line once every year.

If you have a large household or own a commercial business, it’s advisable to hydrojet more often than once a year.
