Q: What Is A Water Jetter?

A: A high pressure water jetter uses water pressure to clean out drain and sewer lines. Using state-of-the-art pumps and hoses, water is propelled under varying amounts of pressure into the sewer or drain line. While cable machines are effective with tree roots and solid obstructions, they are less effective with softer blockages. Instead of boring a hole through the sludge with a cable machine, we use high pressure water jetting to clean and and clear your lines completely!
