Cast Iron Piping
Cast iron was the piping material of choice for home builders in the 1960s because of its durable, long-lasting nature that allowed the pipes to withstand heavy use at high pressures. Many buildings are still equipped with cast iron systems, but as with any piping material, cast iron has its own limitations. Cast iron is prone to external rusting as well as corrosion and, at some point, the pipelines will need to be replaced. Luckily, our team of industry experts is able to tackle any complications you might experience to extend the life of your sewer and drain lines for as long as possible.
Signs Your Pipes Require Descaling Services
It can be difficult for most property owners to accurately assess the cause of the plumbing problems due to the fact that your pipes are usually located in the walls of your home, under the foundation, and below the landscaping. Without an easy access point, determining the severity of an issue can be nearly impossible. However, there are a variety of signs you can be vigilant for that might alert you when it’s time to seek professional assistance. If you notice any unusual occurrences, such as water discoloration, leaks, slow flushing drains, low water pressure, or a sudden increase in your water bill, you might be dealing with constricted pipelines. The best way to restore your pipes to their former function is by having a professional inspect the sewer and drain lines using advanced technology.
How Pipe Descaling Works
Pipe scale in cast iron pipes refers to the buildup of sediment and rust inside the line that can impede the flow of water throughout the sewer and drain pipes. Descaling is a service we offer for pipes that have experienced frequent clogs or blockages in the past due to increased buildup. After conducting a thorough examination of your pipes’ interior using a sewer camera, our team of skilled technicians can begin the descaling process. This involves using a machine with a rotating cable attached to it that scrapes away at the corroded inner walls of the pipe, effectively widening the diameter of the pipe back to its original size. Descaling is an effective option when other traditional trenchless services, such as hydro jetting, cannot be utilized. The process for descaling cast iron pipes is also preferred for its versatility and cost-effective nature.
