What Is Pipe Descaling?

What Is Pipe Descaling?

Years of daily use and exposure to hardened materials and debris can result in a coating building up along cast iron pipe walls. A quick and effective way to say goodbye to what’s referred to as a pipe scale is to contact a plumber in Corona, CA from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter about pipe descaling. Here’s what you need to know about this process.

What Pipe Descaling Is

Descaling is a type of drain cleaning in Corona, CA which removes debris, rust, and mineral buildup from the inner linings of the pipes. It’s a cleaning process that can be done on residential and commercial pipes of varying sizes, lengths, and diameters to restore full flow and capacity.

How It’s Done

A technician will first perform a camera inspection to identify the location and extent of the scale. Then, we will insert grinding chains into your pipes, scouring all the scale and flushing it out of your pipes. Pipe descaling is more effective than drain snaking, which is usually reserved for mild or moderate drain issues.

Signs You May Have Issues with Pipe Scale

Frequently having a clogged drain is one sign suggesting you may have issues with pipe scale. We recommend giving us a call about descaling if you are noticing any of the following signs often associated with scale accumulation:

  • Reduced drain flow
  • Odd sounds when water is flowing through pipes
  • Unpleasant odors coming from your pipes
