Cable Is Able, Jetter Is Better!
Hydro jetting is a fast, no-dig method of clearing clogs from pipes. It is an alternative to laborious and destructive methods such as sewer snakes and excavation. Hydro jetting cleans and clears pipes quickly and safely.
Most drain blockages don’t happen overnight. Many build up gradually with an accumulation of sludge. Add a little grease here, a few food particles there, some soap scum and mineral deposits and eventually a drain will stop running. Hydro jetting is superior to other methods because it cleans pipes, preventing blockages caused by buildup.
What Is Hydro Jetting?
Hydro jetting sends a stream of high pressure water down a drain cleanout. A cleanout is a small opening used by plumbers to access pipes. No digging is required with hydro jetting.
A thin, flexible hose fitted with a nozzle head is inserted into a pipe. At the other end, the hose is attached to a hydro-jet machine equipped with a large tank of water. The machine pressurizes water. The hose can spray at up to 3,500 psi, thoroughly cleaning the pipes.
Plumbers send water through the line at high speed. The pipes are scoured by the pressure of the water. Sludge lining the pipes is liquified. Jets of water break apart the clog and flush it down the pipe.
A technician may use video or sonar technology to pinpoint a clog. Video allows the plumber to see what is causing the blockage. A small camera is sent into the pipe and a plumber watches from above ground as the camera sends images to a monitor. A nozzle head is chosen based on the type and location of the clog.
Why Use Hydro Jetting to Clean Pipes?
Hydro jetting removes clogs using only the power of water. Sewer snakes use spinning metal that can damage pipes. A snake will cut through a clog, but can’t fix the underlying cause of the problem. While a cable may clear the line, the jetter will clean the line!
Hydro jetting is an economical choice because not only does it remove clogs, it keeps pipes clean for a long time. When the buildup is removed from your pipes, it’s less likely that a clog will form any time soon.
Hydro jetting is ideal in many situations. But where pipes are particularly frail, any type of clog-removal may cause damage. Our plumbers assess the situation before recommending how to remove a clog.

Fantastic customer service. We were out of town when tenants needed help with a plumbing issue. They let us know who was being dispatched to our house then followed up with a very detailed message post work. I would definitely use these guys again.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. Had a sewer repair needed and had a very short amount of time due to closing on a house sale. Every single person I encountered from Marquita doing logistics for my job to every member of the work crew. Friendly, communicated well, totally responsive and really cared to help me through this very stressful job. All of the people I encountered were role models for what a well run service business should be. Much thanks and appreciation. You’re great.
We had a leak and no hot water. Apollo came out same day and not only fixed the problem but made it better and gave us some good advice on our system. Very reasonable and great communication. Would definitely recommend.
Don is always so helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciate all the crew members on the Apollo team. I'm a Property Manager so typically I will have several projects for Apollo to address during a single visit. They are easy to interact with and EXCELLENT plumbers. I highly recommend Apollo.
Scott, I would like to personally thank you for expediting our plumbing crisis we recently had. If the situation was not resolved immediately we would have had to close for a couple of days. This occured on a Friday for for us a pizza restaurant this would of been devastating. Thank you so much.

We have used Scott's company after failing miserably with Apollo's many competitors. We tried every one before discovering the extraordinary service we enjoy from Scott and his techs.
