Commonly $75-150 range - maybe even less in very low cost areas.

My opinion - hydrojetting is not the cure-all - and for in-house lines (above slab/ground level) commonly routine snaking (for one-stop clogs) or conventional routing (for buildup in lines or a clog) by a plumber or drain cleaning contractor, for commonly $100 or less, does the job fine.

For DIY (assuming readily disassembled piping, not badly corroded pipes which might break) - while sometimes the lines dropping from the kitchen get built up, generally the trap and the horizontal stubout from the wall to the trap outlet (which is directly accessible once the trap is removed) is where the buildup of fiber, garbage disposal shredded food, and grease concentrates - and those lines can easily be cleaned out by disassembly and swabbing out with a paper towel on the stick or twisted paper towel (for curved pipes).

the answer you were given was false. hydro-jetting any line is on an average starts at 250.00 and up. if the tech has all of their own equipment. if the tech has to rent the equipment it is more like 500.00.

to rent te machine alone is 230.00 a day. that is at any equipment rental place. then you have insurance, all companies must carry, labor, someone has to provide the service, and gas and equipment usage.

for residential it usually is a charge of 295.00 commercial can be 395.00 and up. also you have to remember: the age of the pipes, the condition of the pipes, and what is clogging the pipes.
