However, snaking is not as effective as hydro jetting in cleaning tough debris.

Snaking breaks apart solids but can’t get them off the pipes. 

Hydro jetting eliminates residue to the last bits and leaves the drain squeaky clean.

Some of the waste you can eliminate with hydro jetting include food waste, grease, mineral deposits, silt, tree roots, hair clogs, and much more.

Snaking is ideal for removing soft clogs sitting around 15 feet down the drainage.

You can also request a hydro jetting service as a preventive measure to help your drains function well.
