The hydro jet machine was created for cleaning side sewer lines and drain lines. Using high water pressure, it scours and pushes debris, grease, and general crud from side sewer and drain pipes down into the larger sewer main line.

Hydro jetting works well in some situations, such as grease filled lines. But because hydro jetting can damage fragile pipes due to the force of the water, it is important to call Raymark’s experienced plumbers before proceeding.

Pipe Assessment

Side sewers in Seattle neighborhoods are often constructed of concrete or clay, which if compromised, can break easily under pressure.  Therefore, Raymark Plumbing and Sewer will assess your situation before deciding to hydro jet your lines. 

  • If your pipes are older or in poor condition, we may recommend a safer method of cleaning the line instead of using a hydro jet.

Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer and we will conduct a video inspection of your line to determine the best course of action. Our expert and professional technicians are happy to help clean your drains and side sewer lines. We always want to help you make the best decision for your home and your situation.

  • What is a hydro jet?

    A hydro jet is basically a pressure washer created specifically to clean drain pipes. It is used to clear debris from pipes so that water drains freely.

  • Should I have my drain lines hydro jetted?

    Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer for professional help. We will conduct a video inspection of your line and assess what is needed.  If your pipes are older or in poor condition, the force of the hydro jet’s water could damage the pipes, so we will recommend the safest and most responsible method of cleaning your drain lines.


    review rating 5  As a preventative measure I had the old rubber hoses upgraded to metal hoses for my washer plus, installed new hot & cold faucet seats. Tanya took my incoming call and she was most pleasant and professional. Though this was elective and not urgent, plumber Jose had time to come out same day. The office called me two more times to advise me Jose would be at my condo within 30 minutes. Jose and his partner evaluated my request and gave me a quote. I elected to proceed. Jose completed the work perfectly in one hour. The space was left clean and tidy and my washer / dryer put back in place. Cost? Well, let me just say this. Any young man floundering in college with no apparent purpose, racking up enormous student loan debt, consider a plumbing apprenticeship. You will have a most comfortable income. I appreciate professional trades people.

    review rating 5  Highly recommend! Raymark has been taking care of my home for 12 years. I bought an older condo and as the original equipment has needed repairs or outright replacements since day one. They have been prompt, reliable, solid workmanship, competitive and so professional. The materials and equipment they use is high quality and still appropriate for my budget. Reputable billing. Never once stood me up, and stand by their work. Never a callback. And they are careful with my home. My go-to company. I’m a very happy customer.

    review rating 5  This awesome company came out and cleared our sewer main in no time flat. Dion was courteous, competent, professional, reliable, and did a beautiful job! It is important to me that we hire local, and the truth is, you just get better service! Also, it is important if you don't have a lot of time in your day that you choose a company that will actually show up, and show up when they say they will, and have efficient office staff to help as well. Raymark also provide their employees with benefits, which is SO important! It made me feel glad to support their business, and they are my go-to from here on out. Beautiful service! Please give them a try!
