Reasons We Recommend Descaling for Cast Iron Pipes
A.M. Plumbing & Rooter takes care of all your needs involving drain cleaning in Oceanside, CA. This includes any issues involving cast iron pipes. One of the ways we clean these pipes is with descaling, which is the process of removing accumulated minerals on drain or sewer line walls. Below, we discuss why we recommend descaling for cast iron pipes.
Cast Iron Pipes Are Susceptible to Scale Issues
Cast iron pipes are especially susceptible to scale because it’s common for the inner surfaces of these pipes to become excessively coated with calcium, magnesium, and iron oxide. These minerals gather on pipe walls and contribute to rust deposits. The upside is cast iron pipes can often be effectively descaled with drain snaking and other cleaning techniques.
Caked-On Scale Increases Clog Risks
When the minerals accumulate over time, it can be difficult for cast iron pipes to handle regular flow. In turn, you’ll be more likely to have a clogged drain on a fairly frequent basis. Clogs also have the potential to affect multiple drains in your home and contribute to costly damage from overflows and backups.
Descaling Helps Boost Cast Iron Pipe Lifespan
In addition to having regular inspections done and being careful with how you use your drains, descaling is a cost-effective way to extend the life of your cast iron pipes. While there are other issues that can affect cast iron pipes over time, minimizing the buildup of hardened minerals and rust deposits definitely helps maintain optimal flow.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
