Pipe descaling is a method used to remove accumulated rust and minerals from the walls of pipes. When pipes develop layers of rust and mineral deposits, they tend to gather up solids and grease as they pass through pipes. Over time, this can lead up to the buildup of grease, rust, and solids, blocking the path of drainage and water flowing through the pipes. Having a plumber work on pipe descaling for the pipes in your business or household every year should allow your pipes to stay healthier and increase their longevity.
Scale blocks the flow of water and waste through your pipes. If scale builds up in your pipes, you may not be able to receive the water you use for daily tasks such as washing your hands. the water coming from the faucets can be little to none because of the blockage inside the pipes. If the scale buildup is in your sewer lines, there can be backups in your drains. If things get worse, you may even need pipe repair.
A nearby plumber will come to inspect your pipe to see how much scale buildup it has. Depending on the amount and severity of the buildup, they can use different methods to clear out the blockage. The first method they can use is called hydro jetting. It involves the use of high-water pressure being pushed out through a hose that’s inserted inside the pipe. By using high-pressure water, plumbers can remove debris, clogs, and buildup that’s hard to reach.
Another method is called chemical descaling. It’s generally used in situations where hydro jetting is impractical and can be harmful to the pipes. It’s also better to use for buildups that aren’t so severe. An acidic solution is used to break the blockage, flowing, and taking the debris with it after breaking it apart.
A responsible householder should check up on their plumbing system at least once a year. By keeping up maintenance, you can realize if there’s scale forming or if your pipes need repair.
