Is there a difference between hydro jetting & drain snaking?

Are hydro jetting & drain snaking the same thing?

The main difference between hydro jetting and drain snaking is actually in the tool that the plumbing technician uses to clean the drain or sewer line. Nevertheless, both hydro jetting and snaking will provide a good cleaning solution for your drain or sewer. As a matter of fact, regular drain snaking or hydro jetting ensures the unobstructed flow for your sewer, drain, and entire plumbing system.

Let’s now explore more what are the tools used by both drain cleaning methods and how they differ. 


Drain and sewer hydro jetting uses pressurized water to break down stoppages or remove build up from the pipe. The plumber can use different types of attachments at the end of the hydro jetting hose depending on the desired result. The hydro jet’s flexibility to use different attachments allows the technician to perform multiple tasks with the same tool quickly and efficiently. Therefore, this saves time and resources for the building owner.

Drain snaking is another method for drain and sewer unblocking and cleaning. The drain snake tool is a steel cable that ranges in diameter of 1/4 to 7/8 in thickness. It is usually carried in a drum which is rotated by an electrical motor causing the drain cable to spin inside the pipe. The plumber has the ability to install different attachments at the end of the cable depending on the issue at hand.
