One of the standard issues regularly faced by homeowners is clogged drains and pipes in their house. Calling a plumber to snake the drain and clear whatever is holding up the works is the typical fix for a problem like this. However, a newer process called hydro jetting (or water jetting), is quickly becoming the fastest and easiest way to clear home plumbing clogs and keep pipes clear longer.
