Cast iron was a popular plumbing material for decades, but now many homes or businesses will experience clogs due to scale buildup. Proper maintenance and descaling techniques with Trenchless Pipe Repairs LLC can minimize the risk associated with aging cast iron pipes and prevent plumbing emergencies. We use industry-leading technology to clear layers of scale and restore the robust flow of water through your pipes.
Common Problems with Cast Iron Pipes
Cast iron is a strong a durable material, but will begin to decay over time. The constant flow of water through the pipes will begin to cause corrosion and rust, which can eventually flake off and get lodged in another location along the pipe. Other hard water minerals and sediment can also build up gradually, eventually closing off part of your pipe. The obstruction is also likely to attract passing paper products or other materials, adding to the blockage.
If your pipe becomes significantly clogged, you could have a plumbing emergency on your hands. The restricted flow of water can add pressure to your system that will lead to cracks, leaks, or even a complete rupture.
How to Tell When You Need Pipe Descaling
Early detection of scale buildup in your pipes is vital to fixing it in a timely manner and decreasing the risk of pipe replacement or other involved plumbing repair. You may have a problem if you notice:
- Slow draining fixtures like sinks, bathtubs, or showers
- Strange smells coming from your drains
- Gurgling or other odd noises coming from the pipes
- Dirty water comes back up in your fixtures
Trenchless Pipe Repairs LLC can use a camera inspection if you suspect your cast iron pipes are aging. Our quick and easy inspection can be performed as preventive maintenance or on an as-needed basis when you notice signs of an obstruction.
How Does Pipe Descaling Work?
After performing an inspection to identify the precise location and nature of your blocked pipe, our knowledgeable technician will recommend the appropriate cleaning and repairs. We use a variety of techniques for descaling, but the inspection will provide us with the necessary evidence to make an informed suggestion.
In most cases, we are able to use trenchless technology to clear stubborn materials from your pipes. The entire descaling process can be completed from a nearby access point to prevent damaging your property.
