At Culler Plumbing Services we believe in saving our customers money in every way that we can, and one of the best ways to save is to take a proactive approach to your plumbing. Preventative plumbing maintenance is a great way to extend the life of your residential plumbing system and reduce your risk for plumbing emergencies that result in expensive repairs. We offer many state-of-the-art techniques for keeping your plumbing running strong, including water jetting.
Water jetting is an effective way to keep sewer pipes and drains clean. In this method, we use a pump and a flexible hose to shoot a concentrated stream of water into the sewer line. This method is not only effective at clearing obstructions and cleaning pipes, it is also incredibly efficient, environmentally friendly, and economical. No chemicals are required with water jetting, and it is powerful enough to clean out even the most stubborn clogs.
What kinds of obstructions can water jetting clear?
- Grease buildup
- Hardened scale
- Stubborn debris and sludge
- Foreign objects
All of the above obstructions could easily cause blockages in your sewer system, which could lead to serious problems like sewer backups. Water jetting can remove almost any obstruction without trouble, leaving you with a clean pipe or sewer line, where the water can flow freely once again.

Useful Applications For Hydro Jetting
Hydro jetting is an effective plumbing cleaning method that has been used by professional plumbers for decades to clean drains and sewer lines. Your local plumbing company may try a few other things before using water jetting, including snaking. Stubborn or repeat clogs shouldn’t be dismissed as an annoying reoccurring plumbing problem and should be investigated further. Commercial drain cleaning products are highly corrosive, so hydro jetting is a non-corrosive option to relieve stubborn clogs and clean pipes before applying epoxy lining. Water jetting services from your local plumber are useful for a variety of applications including:
- Stubborn clogs
- Grease or oil build-up
- Hard water-sediment buildup
- Hair and dirt
- Food product buildup
- Lawn clippings, leaves, and branches
- Sewer buildups
- Kitchen pipes and drain cleaning
- Main sewer line clogs
- Removing encroaching tree roots
- Prepping pipes for an epoxy lining
- Old piping that cannot tolerate corrosive chemicals
- Commercial plumbing maintenance
Hydro jetting is extremely effective at eliminating buildup and scale off of the interior of pipes to restore them to optimal conditions. While residential plumbing systems may not require regular hydro jetting, they can benefit from the services in instances of tough clogs. Commercial plumbing applications, however, may use hydro jetting routinely or as preventative maintenance. In commercial kitchens and large commercial buildings facilities, regular sewer line cleaning helps prevent backups or downtime of the restroom facilities.

Why Use Water Jetting Services?
When it comes to commercial and residential drain cleaning options, there are several avenues of approach. At Culler Plumbing Services, we can employ snaking, sewer camera inspections, drain cleaning, or hydro jetting. A few reasons we prefer water jetting over some other drain cleaning services are:
1. The pipes get completely clean.
With other, traditional, drain and pipe cleaning methods, the residue has a chance of sticking to the pipes, settling in curves, or corrosion may occur offering new settling spaces. With professional hydro-jetting services, however, ensures 100% removal of buildup and residue to offer your plumbing system a fresh slate.
2. It is environmentally-friendly.
Water jetting uses high-pressure water, without using harmful chemicals. While it will introduce whatever is caught in your pipes into the end water source, it will not add anything new. Using only clean water to clean is about the most environmentally-friendly way to clean!
3. It offers sanitary cleaning.
Snaking or removing blockages requires a plumber to pull the clog toward the drain, meaning everything that has gone down the drain has to come back up. With hydro-jetting, however, the clog is pushed out the other way, never to be seen in your drain. The controlled jet nozzle allows our expert technicians to direct the flow and the pressure to clean your pipes without creating more problems.
4. It can be used on any pipe.
Unlike other forms of pipe or drain cleaning, hydro-jetting can be used on any type of pipe or pipe material including cement, Orangeburg, steel, cast iron, PVC, resin, or clay pipes. For many of these types of pipes, chemical drain cleaners can cause serious damage, but water jetting can clean the pipes and leave them intact.
5. It offers the first step in renovations.
For many projects, hydro-jetting is required for cleaning before the project can begin. Examples of projects that require water jetting first include:
- Trenchless pipelining
- Man-hole to man-hole lining
- Sectional point repair
- Relining projects
- Plumbing system renovations
- Mainline pipe burst

Water Jetting Services FAQ
What is Water Jetting?
Water jetting is the process of using directed high-pressure water to clean and clear your pipes. The water is directed with extremely powerful equipment in concentrated streams of water to thoroughly clean your entire piping system.
Can I Use High-Pressure Water to Do It Myself?
It is not a good idea to attempt water jetting yourself. Misplaced high-pressure water can cause severe damage and pipe bursts. Our trained plumbing technicians are experienced in using water jetting equipment and how to direct the hoses along the walls of the pipes to clean out the entire length of the sewer line.
When Do I Need Water Jetting?
The most common reason homeowners seek out water jetting services is slow drains or blockages. Fat, oil, grease, hair, roots, and other debris form clogs in your sink drains and tub or shower drains. Water jetting can be performed regularly to prevent buildup or plumbing emergencies.
Why Choose Water Jetting Over Other Methods?
Water jetting is much safer for your residential or commercial plumbing system than commercial drain cleaning products and won’t cause corrosion. While water jetting services may be slightly more costly than other forms of drain cleaning, it is the safest and most effective form, meaning you’ll have more time in between treatments and keep smooth draining pipes for much longer. Cleaner pipes are more efficient, which means it will help reduce water bills. Additionally, clean pipes won’t harbor harmful bacteria that cause harsh smells and even ill health effects.
