A clogged drain gives frequent headaches to a property owner. Whether in commercial or residential properties, blocked drains are a common occurrence. They are usually caused by obstructions like food waste, debris, hair, grease, and mineral deposits.

Do-it-yourself (DIY) remedies may require extra effort to pull out clogs from the drains. Fortunately, you can call a professional on this matter. Most of them conduct hydro-jetting and drain snaking to solve the problem. Learn to do the comparison, hydro-jetting vs snaking, to know which one is a better solution for your clogged drains.


Hydro-jetting unclogs drains using a strong stream of water. The procedure uses flexible hoses that dig into the sewer lines and pipes and push debris away to bring back the unobstructed water flow in the pipes. Aside from removing clogs from the drains, this method also has other benefits such as:

  • It can break heavier and more significant clogs such as dried concretes, woods, and hardened animal wastes.
  • It washes away bacteria from the drains.
  • Hydro-jetting hoses can clear different types of drain and sewer pipes, including PVC, steel, and cast iron.

Drain Snaking

Drain snaking is usually for minor and lighter clogs such as hairs and other food remnants. That’s why performing this method is more efficient for properties with weak pipes and drains because, unlike hydro-jetting, this method doesn’t operate with intense water pressure.

The drain snake is inserted into the pipeline to reach the clogs. It can twist and pull out clogged materials from sewer pipes and drains. Its long and flexible metal tube also shaves away blockages which can clean your building’s pipeline. However, this method can only be a temporary solution for your clogged drains because this method often leaves behind other residue and blockage that causes clogged drains faster than before.
