Cast Iron Pipe Descaling in Surprise

Trusted Plumbers Serving the Phoenix Metro Area

Corrosion-prone metal materials like cast iron may not seem like the best choice for plumbing purposes. After all, constant exposure to water and air means that rust and corrosion will eventually lead to scale that can cause clogs, buildup, and general wear and tear that will eventually need to be repaired. However, these lines are still some of the most durable available today, particularly when used for main drain lines and sewer lines that are protected from the majority of the elements. That being said, the inside can still collect an abundance of scale that will need to be removed. When you need your cast iron drain or other plumbing lines descaled, the team at Before & After Plumbing and Drain is the one you should choose to get it done.

How to Descale a Cast Iron Drain Line

Descaling a cast iron pipe is a job that faces a number of challenges. For one, pipes are usually not all that large—even the biggest pipes only usually have a diameter of around four inches or so and that makes it hard to fit many plumbing tools into them. Likewise, scale itself can be extremely difficult to remove—most of it is stuck to the sides with a stiff bond, making removing it by conventional means almost impossible.

However, we have specialized tools that make quick work of these issues. For smaller-scale problems, a jetting service takes care of the issue. Jetting uses a specialized tool that blasts the walls of your cast iron line with a high-pressure jet of water. This functions sort of like a pressure washer treatment for the inside of your line and cleans the scale away. For larger issues or bigger lines, we use a chain grinder, a tool that spins rapidly with small chain links attached to the outside. The chain links literally beat the scale off the walls of your plumbing line while water jets that flow through the tool flush the scale away down your line. When the jetting process is complete, your cast iron line will look almost as good as the day it was first installed in your Central Arizona home!
