Oftentimes, a simple rooter isn’t effective enough to unclog your pipes. Older plumbing may have corroded materials that are too tough for the rooter blades to cut through, or your piping may have too many turns that limit the force the rooter uses to thrust through clogs. In kitchens or many commercial drains, grease buildup can be too tough for rooter blades as well, and though these may temporarily unclog your pipes, it’s likely that you will continually experience difficulties that can cost you a fortune in plumbing visits down the road.
That’s where hydro jetting comes in. Hydro jetting is the process of forcing jet streams of cold water through your pipe lines under extremely high pressure. The pressure is not enough to damage your pipes, but it’s great enough to cut through grease and material buildup while forcing it through the entire length of your pipes and into the sewer.Hydro jetting is the best and most effective drain and pipe cleaning service for any problem clogs or draining issues that aren’t caused by damaged pipes.
Jetters & Snakes can help you diagnose if hydro jetting will fix your plumbing issues by running a fiber optic video camera through your drainage system. If the camera determines that all of your pipes are healthy but just significantly clogged, hydro jetting will fix your plumbing issues without the cost of re-piping or any intrusion to your landscape.

Jetters & Snakes offers traditional rooter services to unclog almost any household drain. A rooter is a mechanism that consists of a spool of cabling and a high-tension spring. A series of metal blades are attached to the end of the cabling, and spin as the cabling is dispensed through your water piping. The spinning blades will scrape the walls of your plumbing lines, and usually free up and remove debris that may be the source of a clogged drain. Water is flushed through the pipe as the rooter cabling is removed, clearing up the sources of most standard clogs and flushing them out of your sewer line, into the sewer.
This service is typically a quick and effective way to remove common water line clogs or drain clogs in home plumbing systems, but if clogs are present due to grease build up in kitchen sink clogs, or especially in commercial drains at restaurants or other larger buildings, a rooter may not be as effective for long-term clog removal. If grease or similar substances have built up in your drain, check out our hydro jetting services for a more effective fix.
Sometimes a broken or bellied pipe can have the symptoms of typical drain clogs. If you have a recurring clog that a traditional rooter seems to only fix temporarily, a fiber optic camera inspection of your pipes may reveal a larger issue that requires a different fix altogether. Call Jetters & Snakes to schedule a free consultation and inspection if you’ve experienced any type of drain problem, and make sure it gets fixed right.

Garbage Disposal Installation
No home appliance gets hit with more abuse than the old, reliable garbage disposal. Though most people drain whatever they can down the sink, and won’t dare reach into the sink drain to retrieve large food items that get stuck down there without first giving the disposal a spin, few realize that the average garbage disposal is designed to handle light food residue only. Large pieces of food or large amounts of grease that get poured down the drain will not get fully processed by your disposal and can build up. Eventually, this can significantly damage your pipes, causing the need for intense plumbing measures such as hydro jetting or kitchen re-piping in order to get your water lines running properly again.
It’s important to know that if your kitchen sink drain has clogging problems and you have a dishwasher, you may experience dirty water back-flowing into your dishwasher since the dirty dishwater is designed to drain through your sink lines. If you are experiencing drain clogs in your sink and notice your dishes coming out dirty after running the dishwasher, call Jetters & Snakes right away to fix your clogging issues!
Large pieces of food can burn out your disposal as well, causing the need for replacement. Know that most disposals have a red reset button located under the main unit, so try pressing this first. Disposals may not run because a small item, like silverware, bottle caps or coins can jam the disposal blades, so check if this is the case by peering in with a flashlight, but never put your hand inside of the disposal near the blades. Try dislodging it with a tool instead and make sure the unit is off before doing so. If none of these home remedies work, call Jetters & Snakes today!

Bathroom Fixtures Installation
Toilets cause more plumbing problems than any other fixture in your home or building, and constitute the highest percentage of your water bill as well! Unless your toilet was made after the new millennium, it probably uses about 3.5 gallons of water with each flush, and likely contributes to roughly 40% of your total water usage. If you’re thinking about calling Jetters & Snakes because of toilet issues, consider replacing your old toilets with new more efficient designs. Most new toilets use less than half the water and have equal or better flushing power. The money you use to upgrade will likely pay for itself after a few billing cycles from your utility company.
If you’re hearing your toilets run, this can be an exceptional expense as well—a running toilet can waste 10s, even hundreds of gallons of water daily, as the noise you hear is actually water draining down the toilet’s overflow tube because there is a leak somewhere in the tank. The problem is usually an aged or degraded flush valve assembly, though sometimes a corroded overflow pipe can cause the toilet to run as well.
