Anytime Heating, Cooling and Plumbing offers Hydro Jetting drain and sewer clearing services for both Residential and Commercial locations.
When you get a clogged sewer or plumbing drain, a plumber will often use some type of auger or ‘snake’. This is a metal lead that ran down the clogged plumbing pipe. Sometimes this can actually make the problem worse because there can be pieces of metal from the drainpipe that comes off making the clog worse or damaging your pipe.
Hydro Jetting is a process where concentrated and very high-pressurized water [Hydro](up to 4,000 psi) is used to safely blast through blockages in a sewer or drain pipe. As water strikes the inside of the pipe the blockage is safely removed. Reverse streaming water jets also can be used to clear the blockage and clean the pipe. Hydro Jetting can remove debris instantly without disruption or backflow and can also clear a blocked drain without having to dig up pipes.
Anytime Heating, Cooling and Plumbing will use a video camera fed down into your drain or sewer pipe to investigate the blockage and determine the best use and application of the Hydro Jet equipment.
If your home or business is exposed to potential drain and sewer clogging issues such as hair build-up, grease blockage, tree roots, food oil, cooking waste, or food materials you can schedule regular preventive drain cleaning services with Hydro Jet technology.

Q: Is Hydro Jet worth the cost?

Q: How long does Hydro Jet cleaning last?
A: If you do not expose the drain to elements known to clog them, Hydro Jet can last for many, many years. Unlike just using a ‘snake’ to punch a hole through a blockage, hydro jetting actually removes and cleans the blockage and pipes. Also, using a store-bought drain cleaner solution can damage your pipes and may only last a week or less.
