We all know homes and commercial properties have drain pipes that must stay clear of obstructions at all times. When blockages happen, they have to be cleared for things to drain properly. Sometimes blockages cause problems with only one drain and some cause problems in the entire home or building. Different types of drain problems can be caused by different things, from a simple grease or paper clog to a root invasion, broken pipes and more. This is where a hydrojet vs a cable machine comes in.
Different Blockages Call For Different Solutions
The type of blockage and it’s location determines the best course of action. The size of the blocked pipe or drain is also a factor. Cabling or snaking to unclog them is the appropriate solution most of the time. However there are times when a snake or cable machine doesn’t work or doesn’t clear the pipes/drains thorough enough. In cases like this, hydrojetting may be your best solution.
Hydrojetting uses high pressurized water instead of a rotating cable. The pressure and direction of the water is controllable which gives a hydrojet advantages that cabling doesn’t. One main advantage is that cable machines and snakes can be destructive to old and/or rusty pipes whereas hydrojetting tends to offer more control with less chance of breaking pipes. The biggest advantage may be that pipes and drains are more thoroughly cleaned with a hydrojet, preventing future buildups leading to more maintenance and repairs.
The cost for hydrojetting is usually slightly higher than needing a cable machine because a hydrojet is typically larger and more complicated to operate. It has to be to do the work that it does and this can be reflected in the price charged for using one. Plumbers that have a hydrojetter as well as cable machines at their disposal are more capable of getting the problem solved. They will be able to thoroughly discuss the problem you are having, and will be more likely to have the solution and appropriate tools to carry it out.
