Pipe descaling is the removal of accumulated minerals and rust from the inner surfaces of water, drainage, or sewer pipes. Descaling can also remove smaller roots that have grown inside the pipes. It is an important and necessary plumbing procedure in places where the water supply is full of minerals like calcium or magnesium carbonates.
Cast iron pipes tend to have more severe scaling because their inner surfaces become coated with iron oxide as well as calcium and magnesium salts. When a pipe develops a thick, uneven layer of mineral and rust deposits, it begins to snag any solids and grime that flow past the rough sections. Eventually, the pipe becomes clogged or blocked.
Luckily, descaling is a good way to clear pipes and restore them to working condition.
There are two main methods used to do pipe descaling. The first is by scrubbing the pipes with abrasive tools or materials. The second is with the use of chemicals.
How a plumber chooses to descale a pipe depends on the extent of the blockage and scale buildup in the pipes. It also depends on whether the pipes carry clean water or wastewater.
After a plumber does a thorough inspection of the pipes, they will recommend the most effective descaling technique.
We use hydro jetting and descaling to remove scale buildup from pipes:
The plumber will choose this method to clear a pipe that is heavily clogged. First, they will blast a jet of highly pressurized water (water with a force of at least 3,500 pounds per square inch) to remove any blockage.
Next, the plumber will attach a descaling nozzle to the hydro-jet, which will blast pressurized water through the nozzle. The descaling nozzle has a chain attached to it, much like a chainsaw. When pressurized water flows through the nozzle it rotates the chain, which scrubs the rust and mineral buildup from the pipe’s surface.
The descaling nozzle scrubs the pipe and washes away the debris at the same time.
Simply the best around. Jim and his team have always been quick to get back to me, and quick to be onsite when they know the situation is dire. I'd be swimming laps in my basement right now if it weren't for Jim. I've got them on speed dial.
I was quoted for a major issue by a different company. When I called for a second opinion, Royal Flush came out the same day and found a minor issue the first guys had overlooked. Royal Flush saved me thousands of dollars, and I won’t use any other company going forward. Amazing experience.
Excellent job fast and reasonable. Great job guys .
