Clogged drains are inevitable for homeowners. At some point, you’ll almost certainly need to deal with a clogged drain, be it in your bathroom sink, toilet, shower, or kitchen sink. Debris like hair, soap, and food waste can create a clog over time that makes water drain slowly or not at all.

While this can be a messy problem, an experienced plumber can make unclogging a breeze. Here at RedFin Plumbing Co., we can provide either hydro jetting or snaking to clear out your drain, depending on the extent of the issue and what has clogged your drain.

Below, we’ve gathered some of the main details about these methods. Keep reading to find out what service you may need from our experienced team!

When Should I Use Snaking?

“Snaking” is an aptly named process that involves putting a long, flexible tube down the drain to break up and remove clogs. The snakelike tube is fed into the drain, and the clog is broken up by a combination of twisting, pulling, and pushing. This method is ideal for smaller clogs that can be caught and pulled out. It’s a relatively gentle method of clog removal, so it may work better if you have an older and more delicate plumbing system. However, it’s not as effective in removing absolutely everything that’s stuck in your pipes. A pipe that has been snaked once is likely to have to be snaked again, possibly sooner than you would like, as some of the blockage might be left behind.

When Should I Use Hydro Jetting?

As mentioned above, snaking is a method that works for less complex clogs. When the situation is more dire and the clog more stubborn, hydro jetting may be needed. This is the process by which highly pressurized water is used to clear the clog. From debris like hair and grease to built-up minerals, hydro jetting can clear it all! That means that the results of your unclogging service will last longer, because more debris and contaminants will be removed. Hydro jetting is especially beneficial when you don’t have full access to your pipes. If snaking simply won’t take care of the clog and your plumbing system is new and strong enough to withstand the pressure of hydro jetting, you should consider this service.
