The hydro-jet machine was created for cleaning side sewer lines and drain lines. Using high water pressure, it scours and pushes debris, grease, and general crud from the side sewer and drain pipes down into the larger sewer mainline.

Hydro jetting works well in some situations, such as grease-filled lines. But because hydro jetting can damage fragile pipes due to the force of the water, it is important to call Raymark’s experienced plumbers before proceeding.

Pipe Assessment

Side sewers in Seattle neighborhoods are often constructed of concrete or clay, which if compromised, can break easily under pressure.  Therefore, Raymark Plumbing and Sewer will assess your situation before deciding to hydro jet your lines. 

  • If your pipes are older or in poor condition, we may recommend a safer method of cleaning the line instead of using a hydro jet.

Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer and we will conduct a video inspection of your line to determine the best course of action. Our expert and professional technicians are happy to help clean your drains and side sewer lines. We always want to help you make the best decision for your home and your situation.
