What's a Jetter?

Do you know what to do when your drain stops draining?

You've probably tried one of those plastic snake things you pick up at the store, but those only go so deep and won't clear a grease or soap clog.

You're familiar with liquid drain cleaners, but those don't do enough to clear a truly clogged pipe.

Even professional plumbing snakes will leave a lot behind.

Hydro Jetter
Try Using a Jetter
A drain jet uses high pressure water to move through pipes and break away buildup.

One high pressure stream of water is directed forward to clear the path while multiple high pressure streams are directed in a reverse angle to propel the jet forward while also flushing debris backward.

Choosing a Jetter Style
The style you choose should be based on whether you'll use it indoors or outdoors.

Electric Hydro Jetter
Electric Jetters
For using indoors, you should choose an electric jetter. They're lighter weight, slightly less expensive, and most importantly, safe for indoor use.

You do not want to use a gas jetter inside your home or garage, because it will give off poisonous carbon monoxide.

Gas Hydro Jetter
Gas Jetters
If you plan to be running it outdoors to clear sewage lines of grease, sludge, sand, or ice, your best bet will be a gas jetter.

This will give you the power and mobility to clear tougher piping without needing an outlet.
