The Right Services for Every Job
While drain snaking may work for certain situations, other clogs need a more thorough approach. A clog that is located deep in the drainpipe, the main sewer line, or recurring clogs may benefit from hydro jetting in San Jose. Our plumbing technicians determine the best equipment to solve each problem quickly and efficiently.
Hydro jetting can be used for main sewer lines and drain clogs in certain situations. As debris builds up inside the drain, it can cause the water to drain slower. Snaking can remove a clog, but it won’t clean the debris from the inside of the pipe. If you have noticed unpleasant odors in a drain, it may be a buildup of food particles or other waste. Hydro jetting can completely remove the debris and eliminate the odor.
How to Unclog Main Sewer Line
If you are asking yourself any of these questions, you likely have a sewer line clog:
Why is my toilet and shower backing up?
A backup affecting multiple fixtures is normally a clear indicator of something blocked deep in your pipes, where each part of the sewer system connects to. This is also what causes drains to back up in multiple areas of the house.
How do I fix slow drains?
Much like drain backups, multiple slow drains often indicate deep clogs. One slow moving drain might need a more shallow drain cleaning, while multiple will require something more heavy duty like hydro jetting.
Why is sewage coming up in my yard? (Or coming up in your drains)
When there’s a blockage deep below, sewage has nowhere to go but up.
Something we at Crown Plumbing get asked a lot by homeowners is: Will Draino unclog the sewer line?
We would like to strongly advise against trying this. The amount of drain cleaner you would have to use to clear a large clog like a sewer blockage would be very damaging to your plumbing and may cause sewer or water leaks.
Another question we get asked often is: Can a sewer line unclog itself?
While this does occasionally happen, it’s not something you should bank on. In rare instances, the pressure from the backup pushes the clog through. However, there are often complications like invading tree roots that make this next to impossible.
What is Hydro Jetting For Sewer Lines?
Hydro jetting is effective for removing virtually any type of clog. Our San Jose hydro jetting technicians know how to unclog sewer lines and remove everything from stubborn blockages to tree roots, using our specialized hydro jetting machine.
Sewer lines are especially prone to blockages because tree roots are attracted to the conditions inside your sewer lines, areas with high moisture and ample nutrients. The roots grow into the pipes and take up a lot of space. If left to their own devices, they can even break your pipes. Hydro jetting can blast right through tree roots and completely clear your sewer lines.

Hydro jetting uses water pressure and special attachments to clean any debris that has collected inside the pipe. The water is highly pressurized to blast away clogs and debris but safe for your plumbing system. The hydro jetting machine is flexible enough to move through the pipes and the attachments direct the flow of water where it is needed to clear out the pipe.
This method is safe and effective for removing tough clogs from your drains or sewer line, as long as the plumbing system is in good condition. If the pipes are old or corroded, the water pressure may be too much for the pipe. We inspect your pipes first to ensure that San Jose hydro jetting is the best approach for your problem.
