Answering Hydro Jetting FAQs
At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, one of the approaches to drain cleaning in San Marcos, CA, we specialize in is hydro jetting. We recommend this solution when other methods aren’t enough to clear a severely clogged pipe. It uses highly pressurized water to clear pipe obstructions and restore smooth water flow. We usually receive several questions about hydro jetting from our clients, which we answer below:
How Does Hydro Jetting Work?
We usually start our drain cleaning services with a video camera inspection to find and identify the cause of the clog. We also assess the condition of the pipes to see if it’s stable enough to withstand the force of high water pressure.
Next, we insert a hydro jet into the cleanout. It blasts pressurized water into the pipeline, flushing grease, mineral deposits, tree roots, and other debris out of the system.
How Much Pressure Does a Hydro Jet Utilize?
Water jets usually run at 4,000 pounds per square inch (psi) or more. Our drain cleaning company adjusts the pressure depending on the severity of the clog and to avoid accidental damage to the pipes.
Is Hydro Jetting Better Than Drain Snaking?
In most cases, yes. While drain snaking can dislodge clogs, it will still leave residue where debris can latch on, causing the clog to form again. Meanwhile, hydro jetting removes all pipe obstructions while scouring your pipes clean. It can also tackle multiple drain issues at once. This ensures the clog won’t recur, allowing you to enjoy free-flowing drains for years.
What Sets Hydro Jetting Apart?
While hydro jetting is a powerful means to unclog a pipe, it doesn’t use chemicals to be effective. It uses water alone, making it an environmentally friendly solution. It also aids with pipe repairs, thus providing a long-lasting solution for recurring clogs, backups, and invasive tree roots.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
