Why Hydro Jetting Might Be A Better Solution For Your Drain Cleaning in Yakima WA

   Cabling or Snaking your drains alone may not always be the best solution to take care of your Yakima drain cleaning needs. Often times, snaking a drain will leave behind roots, grease and other debris that a cable alone can not remove from your sewer or drain line.

advanced plumbing techniques, yakima wa plumbers, absolute drain cleaning solutions



  • Complete Cleaning
A Hydro Jet uses highly pressurized water at a rate of 2000psi-7000psi which completely scours the walls of the drain pipe, leaving the inside of your drain in optimal condition. The high pressure cleaning will remove all grease, soap build up, hair, roots, and bacteria growth which can lead to an awful odor emitting from your pipes.
  • Safe On Pipes
Hydro Jetting is a non-destructive alternative for drain cleaning that is performed by experienced plumbing technicians who are trained to use the equipment in a safe and effective manner. Using caustic chemicals in your drains can be damaging to your pipes and the environment. Snaking a drain or sewer pipe is generally considered to be safe in most regards. However, the repetitive use of a mechanical auger can be destructive on older plumbing drains.

  • Long Lasting 
Due to the extra capabilities of a Hydro Jetter to remove all of the debris in your drains, the resulting effect will generally last longer.

  •  Cost Effective
As mentioned above, Hydro Jetting a sewer or drain line will help prevent your drains from re-clogging from leftover debris in the pipe that a snake alone cannot remove. The remaining grease or other bacteria and debris that an auger leaves behind can often times cause the drain to prematurely clog again adding additional costs over time.

Advanced Hydro Jetter Plumbing Services

24 Hour Rooter offers a variety of Hydro Jetting services that set us apart from other competitors. We carry a large assortment of different attachments for hydro drain cleaning services including different size hoses to get the job done right. We can also provide a video inspection of the drain cleaning to assure you that your drains were cleaned to optimal specifications.

Maintaining A Stubborn Root Problem in Your Yakima Sewer and Drains.

Most of our customers know that tree roots can invade their sewer and drain plumbing but one of the most common questions we receive from customers is how to prevent roots from re-entering their sewage infrastructure.

yakima plumbing experts sewer and drain cleaning advice

Many of the Yakima, WA residential areas are 50-100 years old and these older homes still have a majority of the original plumbing and sewer systems that were originally installed with the home. 

The side sewer laterals that were installed outside of these older homes was commonly constructed of cement, clay, or asbestos sectional tiles. Most often these sectional tiles were butted together without a water-tight sealant. 

Over the years, these older systems are susceptible to damage and intrusion from tree roots. The tree roots will start to grow through the joining section of the older pipe materials and begin growing inside of the sewer plumbing.

If this problem is detected soon enough, there are various means to take care of the root problem before they ultimately  damage the drain line to the point of having to be replaced.

24 Hour Rooter can help you with the most stubborn root problem by cutting out the majority of the tree roots with a powered main line sewer snake and once the roots have been removed from we can visually look inside the drain or sewer pipe with a sewer video inspection camera to verify the condition of your sewer drain pipe.

We will then determine the extent of your root problem and make suggestions based on the condition of your sewer pipe. 

Often times the remedy is quite simple. The market is flooded with various products that are labeled as Root Killer. However, many of these products either simply do not work or can be very caustic and damaging to the environment.

Upon completion of any root removal service that we offer to our customers, we will take our time to explain to you everything you need to know about maintaining a root free sewer line.

Flushing Awesome | King County Sewage Treatment Warns Against Flushing Baby Wipes

We have been telling our Yakima customers for years about the effects that baby wipes and disinfectant wipes have on their sewer drain pipes. The King County Water Treatment Division has released a new campaign labeled "This Is Flushing Awesome". A spin off of Macklemore's "Thriftshop" to help get people's attention about the devastation of flushing items down the toilet that ultimately cause the price of sewage treatment to soar. The disposal of foreign objects that end up at the treatment centers in Yakima county or anywhere else cost the consumer extra money on their water and sewer bill. The non-sewage waste has to be separated and hauled to a garbage landfill.









Do your part to help lower these needless costs by never flushing baby wipes, counter wipes, feminim products or any other solid waste that doesn't degrade in water.



Let's all be Flushing Awesome.
