It's not something I would recommend as a DIY. Done incorrectly, like with too much pressure or the wrong tip, can cut and destroy the pipe in the field.

We use to use a jetter to clean pout leachate lines at the landfill where I worked. The jetter would put our 15K to 20K PSI to remove material in the pipes. It would lear up ABS pipe very quickly and Sch. 40 plastic pipe after 2 or 3 times we cleaned them. We began to use Sch. 80 PVC and SDR 21 HDPE pipe. Even at 10K the jetter would tear up ABS pipe. I doublr you would find anywhere you can rent a high pressure jetter due to liability.
