Is Hydro Jetting Suitable for Older Pipes?
Maintaining the plumbing system in older homes can be challenging, especially when dealing with aging drain pipes prone to clogs and backups. One proven approach to drain cleaning in Lake Elsinore, CA, we at A.M. Plumbing & Rooter take to remove stubborn buildup and restore water flow is hydro jetting. This technique uses highly pressurized water to clear pipes, but is it suitable for older lines? Let’s first take a look at how it works.
Hydro Jetting Overview
Hydro jetting works like power washing—it relies on the force of water to thoroughly scour your clogged drain, leaving no trace of dirt behind. It uses a special nozzle that blasts high-pressure water in all directions, allowing it to reach hard-to-access areas of your pipeline. With pressure levels reaching 1,500 to 4,000 psi, it can cut through the toughest blockages, like congealed grease, accumulated scale, and invasive tree roots. In turn, it keeps your pipes free-flowing for a long time.
Is It Safe for Old Pipes?
Hydro jetting is safe as long as your pipes are still stable. During drain cleaning services, we inspect your drains using an advanced camera to determine the cause of the clog and assess if the system can withstand high water pressure. If the pipes are on their last legs, we will perform a different cleaning method or recommend replacing them altogether.

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!!
