    Is hydro jetting the main line from the house to the street effective?

    Main line is 4 inch cast iron and camera views show the inside diameter decreased by about an inch
    or more.

    Using 1.28 gallon toilets and have had 2 clogs in about a year.

    Prior to changing old toilets to new 1.28's I never had a problem in 14 years.

    I've adjusted the fill valve to increase waterr in the tank to see if more water per flush avoids
    future clogs.

    In the event I get another clog after adding more water to flush, would hydro jetting be a reasonable
    thing to try?

    Also, what is a reasonable cost for hydro jetting?

    Jetting will remove any SOFT material, but will NEVER touch scale buildup, which is basically part of the pipe by now.
