Septic Plumbing Solutions: Snakes Vs. Hydro Jetting, Gig Harbor Peninsula, Washington

When it comes to your home’s septic plumbing system, a clogged drain or pipe can be quite problematic. Whether your clog is the result of a sludge buildup or sending the wrong items down the drain, having wastewater back up into your home is hazardous and inconvenient. Gig Harbor, WA’s Hemley’s Septic Tank Cleaning can easily fix your clogged drains. As these experts explain, plumbing snakes and hydro jetting are among the best drain cleaning solutions. Here’s a closer look at how these two services work.

Plumbing Snakes

septic-plumbing,Plumbing snakes are handheld metal tubes with an extendable cable. This cable features a hand crank for extension and retraction, as well as a corkscrew auger or blade on one end that is designed to catch the material clogging your drain. Your plumber will gradually extend the cable into the drain until it reaches the clog. The auger latches to the clogging material, which is then pulled out of the pipe. Plumbing snakes are frequently used to unclog toilets or sinks and are quite effective in resolving smaller septic plumbing issues.

Hydro Jetting

For more problematic drain cleaning issues, septic plumbing professionals use hydro jetting. Hydro jetting machines use a water pressurizing unit that is connected with a hose. By inserting the hose into the plumbing system and releasing a high-pressure blast of water, technicians clear away hair, grease, and other hard to remove clogs. When a plumbing snake can’t resolve the clog effectively, hydro jetting typically serves as an effective drain cleaning solution.
