Professional Hydro Jetting Services

Jackson's Trusted Hydro Jetting Experts

No matter what you do, some clogs just won’t quit. And watching your water back up, again and again, is enough to raise anyone’s stress levels. If left as is, your pipes could eventually become completely blocked and send wastewater flowing back into your tub, sink, or toilet. When this happens, you’ll be left with a mess to clean up. In instances where an obstruction isn’t cleared up by typical solutions, including plungers and drain cleaners, it’s a good sign that you need to step things up a notch.

The answer? Hydro jetting (also referred to as ‘hydro-jetting,’ ‘hydrojetting,’ or ‘water jetting’). This innovative drain cleaning method is effective, safe, and eco-friendly. It also doesn’t end with you tearing up your front yard with a backhoe or an excavator. Though few plumbing companies in the Jackson area are offering this service, Aspen Plumbing Services happens to be one of them. So, if you have a root problem or a stubborn ball of baby wipes that your normal plumber can’t beat, give us a call at (517) 750-9913. For more information about the what, why, and how of hydro jetting, keep reading.

Hydro Jetting Services

You’ve probably seen a power washer in action. Hydro jetting is a process that takes the same basic technology and repurposes it to clean hair, roots, grease, and stubborn clogs from your pipes. Like all hydro jetters, our equipment is made up of three parts: a superpowered compressor, a long hose, and a specialized nozzle capable of spraying water out at extremely high pressure, or PSI. Because of the expertise involved, it’s a tool best left in the hands of a licensed plumber in the Jackson area.

When Traditional Drain Cleaning Isn't An Option

If you have a clog that resists traditional cabling and snaking in southeastern Michigan, hydro jetting should be your next step. To schedule an appointment for hydro jetting, give us a call today.

While rooter services and camera inspections can clear surface blockages, they rarely tackle the problem at its source. This is doubly true for reoccurring issues like hard water or root build-up. By punching a larger hole through these and other tough clogs, hydro jetting can help your pipes go longer without relining or replacement. It can also stop those issues from coming back! With all that sticky residue and rust gone, hair and grease will just slide on through.

Using Drain Cleaners

When you use retail store drain cleaners, you often end up doing more harm than good. That’s why you’ll find few plumbers willing to recommend them. But why is the easy way not the best way?

  • Chemical drain cleaners are some of the most dangerous chemicals you can buy. They can burn your skin, irritate your lungs, and damage your eyes.
  • Many of these liquids damage the lining of your pipes and can increase the likelihood of leaks.
  • Store-bought cleaners typically can’t dissolve things like grease and tree roots. In many cases, they just wash the problem into a place that’s even harder to reach.

So, put down the Drano and call a professional Jackson plumber, like Aspen Plumbing today. It’ll help protect your pipes and keep you from breathing in noxious chemical fumes.

Using Drain Cleaners

Aspen Plumbing Services believes that hydro jetting is one of the best ways to exterminate stubborn clogs. Here are a few advantages it has over more traditional clog-busting methods:

  • Speed: The high-pressure nozzle can get your pipes clear in minutes, not hours. This allows you to get back to normal life in Jackson a lot sooner.
  • Cost Savings: Lateral pipe clogs and severe root obstructions often mean digging up your pipes. This can cost you thousands of dollars. Hydro jetting gives you an alternative way to deal with these problems.
  • Power: A drain snake can’t do much against tree roots, but the same can’t be said for a hydro jetter. The extreme PSI involved means that even the most physically daunting clogs pose no problem.
  • Versatility: No matter what kind of clog you have or what your pipes are made of, hydro jetting can help. Unlike snaking, hydro jetting can also tackle issues that other methods can’t reach.
  • Permanence: That chemical drain cleaner might work for a couple of weeks. The snaking can help for a little longer. Because it dissolves the root obstructions and mineral buildup that often cause recurring clogs, hydro jetting in Jackson is a long-term solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

While chemical drain cleaners are acceptable in certain situations, we discourage using them frequently or as a first solution. These chemicals are extremely toxic and can eat away at pipes if overused. Ask us about safer alternatives to deter and clear clogs.
Our plumbers have access to tools and materials that can clear up any clog without damaging your pipes. And, if your home has recurring clogs, only a real Jackson plumber can get rid of them for good!

A lot of plumbing problems are easy to spot, but leaks have a tendency to go unnoticed. This is because they often start small and can go unnoticed for months or years. They can also hide under floors, above ceilings, and behind walls, making them more challenging to find. Here are a few signs you may have a leak:

  • Rapidly climbing water bills
  • Your water meter ticks even when you aren’t using water
  • A musty smell or signs of mold become visible
  • Discoloration and dampness occurs near tubs and toilets

If you see any of these signs, don’t panic. Call Aspen Plumbing at (517) 750-9913 and schedule an appointment instead!

If your shower pressure is low when other fixtures are running, you may have an insufficient plumbing system. If the problem persists when only the shower is running, there may be a leaking pipe somewhere.

There are a number of simple ways to downsize your water bill. These include:

  • Taking shorter showers
  • Turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth
  • Only running the washing machine or dryer when you have a full load
  • Installing low-flow showerheads and toilets
  • Adding a brick to your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used per flush

If you try all these things and your water bill keeps climbing, you may have a leak in your home. Call (517) 750-9913, so one of our plumbers can investigate.

The average water heater in Jackson lasts between 8 and 12 years. Note that this applies to gas water heaters; electric ones can last a little longer. However, the signs that a new water heater is needed don’t relate to fuel source. These include:

  • Dark or rusty water
  • No hot water
  • Flooding and dampness around your water heater

In the Jackson area, it’s not uncommon for temperatures to dip below 32°F. When that happens, pipes can freeze and burst. Fixing frozen pipes is one of the most expensive plumbing repairs you can have. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to prevent this catastrophe. These include:

  • Opening doors and cabinets on cold days
  • Insulating pipes inside and outside your home
  • Keeping a faucet dripping
  • Quickly patching any cracks
  • Never set your thermostat lower than 55°F
