High-pressure drain jetting, sometimes called “hydro jetting”, “hydroscrubbing”, or simply “jetting”, is a highly effective method for cleaning drain lines. Specialized equipment is used to scrub the inside of a pipe using pressurized water, removing buildup and debris from its entire length. Jetting is the preferred way to do preventative maintenance – it removes grease, sludge, scale, and sediment before they can cause a blockage.

These days, more plumbers are offering jetting, but SOS Drain Services has a superior method: hot-water jetting. Most plumbers have small jetting machines that can only use cold water. At SOS Drain Services, we have a self-contained “steam unit” truck which can carry 1,900 liters (500 gallons) of water to the site, heat it to nearly boiling, then pump it through our specialized hot-water jetter.

Compared to regular jetting, hot-water jetting:

  • Penetrates and liquifies grease deposits, preventing them from causing clogs further down the drain line

  • Does a superior job of removing buildup inside pipes

  • Speeds up the jetting process, minimizing the amount of time spent in your busy facility

  • Melts through frozen drain lines

If you manage a restaurant, commercial building, multi-tenant residential building, or parkade, hot-water jetting will ensure that your drain lines continue to flow well.
