Sewer Pipe Descaling
Sewer pipe descaling is the process of removing scale deposits from your cast iron pipe. By removing corrosion deposits from the inside of a cast iron sewer line, you can avoid a clog and extend the life of the pipe. Disposed paper products and solid material can get caught on hard, iron deposits that build up over time inside the pipes. Sewer pipe descaling is used when hydrojetting cannot complete the job.

For customers it is a cheaper alternative for pipe restoration compared to pipe replacement. Descaling is a two-part process which includes hydro jetting. While we descale the cast iron line we hydrojet simultaneously to flush out all the loose scale. Once the descaling process is complete we hydrojet the line one final time to flush clear of any residual debris. And of course final video inspections are performed to check outcome of the process.
