Drain Solutions: Snaking VS Jetting

For years, plumbers have used cable machines (commonly called an ‘auger’ or ‘snake’) to unclog blocked pipes. Cable equipment is very effective at restoring flow, however snaking a clogged drain can leave debris on the sidewalls of your line. That buildup can mean difficulty getting the line clear or additional visits by your plumbing expert.

Jetting can help your drain systems stay clear and clean longer compared to results from traditional cabling equipment. Jetting equipment uses up to 4000 pounds of water pressure for every square inch of the line in order to cut tree roots and emulsify grease–removing build-up and debris more effectively than traditional cabling equipment.
