Drain pipe descaling can resolve many common sewer drain pipe problems such as leaking pipes, slow flushing drains, and clogged pipes due to scale buildup. Over the years, flakes from the cast iron can break off into the sewer line. The broken pieces will eventually accumulate and cause a blockage in the line. Scale also occurs from minerals, soap scum, carbon dioxide, hard water, and more within the pipelines. The more it builds up, the higher the risk of your drains becoming clogged. Scale buildup is one of the more serious problems that can occur within your pipes, but we are skilled in resolving this issue using our descaling process.
Descaling is the process of removing the build-up of scales caused by aging cast-iron sewer lines and other factors; it is also known as pipe rehabilitation. This process helps prevent future back-ups in the sewer lines. Cast iron sewer pipes can last over 50 years, excluding factors that speed up deterioration, but unless your home is at least 50-60 years old, it’s likely that your sewer pipes are in fact in perfectly functional condition and don’t actually need replacing.
Before pipe descaling can take place, we will inspect your pipes using our sewer camera inspection. Sewer camera inspections will provide us with the severity of your scale buildup and its location within the pipes. Afterwards we can move forward with the descaling process if it is needed. Cast Iron Pipe Descaling is a fairly new process utilizing a specialized machine with specific attachments attached to a rotating cable. This method is a lot safer on cast iron pipes that are in poor shape and cannot be cleaned out using a traditional Hydro-Jetter. With the descaling machine we can scrape the corrosion off the inner walls of the cast iron pipe, so it can be flushed down the sewer.
Other symptoms which pipe descaling could help resolve include:
Rusted pitted iron, holes in pipe, sewer belly, problems with sewer lining, sewer rehabilitation, trenchless sewer rehab.
