Our Pipe Descaling Process
Cast iron pipes are strong enough to last for decades, but proper preventative maintenance is necessary to extend that lifespan. Sediment and rust begin to build up within the pipes, causing pipe scaling. If left untreated, the scaling will intensify the corrosion and can weaken pipe walls to the extent that the entire pipeline will need to be replaced.
The process involves two steps:
- Camera Inspection & Evaluation
- Trenchless Descaling Methods
