Why Drain Snaking Remains a Top Option

Home / Why Drain Snaking Remains a Top Option


Drain snakes (or augers) might seem like outdated technology, and in some cases, they’re not the right tool for the job. An auger uses a metal claw to push through clogs, pulling them out when the plumber pulls the snake back out of the pipe. Drain cleaning services often call for augers when the problem involves a single section of pipe.

Hydro jetting can clean pipes more thoroughly by using highly pressurized water to clear out grease, tree roots, and other obstructions, leaving the pipes in like-new condition. While hydro jetting is affordable, the process is often much more involved and requires a higher degree of skill on the part of the plumber.

Hydro jetting can damage some older pipes, which is why your plumber in Eastvale, CA, begins their work with an in-line video inspection of the customer’s plumbing. If hydro jetting could crack the pipes or if the process wouldn’t result in a good return on value for the customer, the plumber will look for alternatives.

When pipe damage prevents the use of hydro jetting services, commercial augers can restore functionality to the home’s plumbing quickly. However, professional-level drain snakes still have plenty of power and can cause damage when used improperly.

Property owners with a clogged drain should look for an experienced plumber who can evaluate pipes carefully and choose an appropriate method. A drain snake can treat a simple clog in a matter of minutes, but hydro jetting can address more widespread issues that could eventually impact the longevity of the home’s sewer pipes.
