Hydro Jetting Your Drains For The Holidays

Clearing Your Drains this Season

The holidays are a busy time for many families. From holiday shopping to cooking and cleaning for guests, there is a lot to get done in order to be ready for celebrations with friends and family.

The pressure and busyness of the holidays doesn’t just fall on the shoulders of your family, it also takes a toll on your plumbing. The extra people in your home using the showers, toilets, and sinks, as well as the influx in cooking, means your pipes are working overtime to keep up with your schedule.

A clogged drain is not a stressor you want to be added to your plate of turkey and mashed potatoes this season. To avoid back-ups and clogs, the experts at McGill Plumbing & Water Treatment, Inc. recommend scheduling a hydro jetting appointment ahead of the busy holiday season.

What is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is the process of removing blockages in pipes with the help of water pressure. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill water pressure, though. This is a stream of about 3,500 psi, blasting away anything in its path.

This extremely powerful stream of water can clear away years of:

  • Rust
  • Grease and oil build-up
  • Minerals
  • Solidified food and other debris

While the traditional method of cleaning pipes and clearing clogs is proven to be effective, the advanced technology that has brought us to hydro jetting offers a range of benefits for your plumbing.

The Benefits of Hydro Jetting

Besides the obvious benefit of getting rid of blockages in your pipes, let’s take a look at the other benefits of a hydro jetting service.

Easier On Pipes

While this stream of water is at an extremely high pressure, it is actually a lot easier on your pipes than other methods of drain cleaning. Hydro jetting works on a variety of pipe materials and was designed with all connections and other piping components in mind.

When attempting to clear your drains with chemical solutions, you risk deterioration, rust, and overall damage to your pipes, resulting in more damage than what you began with.


Your hydro jetting appointment will take care of all the blockages and debris build-up in your pipes, effectively ridding them of potential problems that could end up costing you a large amount of money down the road.

McGill Plumbing & Water Treatment, Inc. has personally helped multiple homeowners save thousands of dollars through hydro jetting their old pipes clean, rather than replacing their entire piping system.

Environmentally Friendly

Chemicals used in other methods of drain cleaning pose a threat to the water and septic systems surrounding your home. While hydro jetting uses a large amount of water, it is a much more environmentally conscious choice that is safe for your septic tank.


With water pressure this high, there is no doubt that hydro jetting is the faster drain cleaning option. Your plumber can locate the clog and efficiently clear it in a much shorter time than traditional methods.

Hydro Jet for the Holidays

Now that you’ve learned the benefits of hydro jetting, let’s discover why you should schedule an appointment ahead of the holiday season.

The Kitchen

Your kitchen is responsible for taking on a large aspect of the holidays: cooking. If your kitchen drains are clogged during this time, it could slow you down, or worse, put a stop to all kitchen sink usage, and cause additional stress. Clearing your drains beforehand with a solution as effective as hydro jetting will leave you to only worry about making sure the turkey tastes delicious!

Bathroom emergencies are never something you want your guests to have to deal with, and a clogged toilet or shower on a holiday is no fun!
