Pipe Descaling

Dependable Pipe Descaling in Albany, NY, and Nearby Areas

Calcium, magnesium, and other elements that naturally occur in water settle out and create crystal formations that bond with pipes. These layers of crystals create mineral scale, which also traps grease and other debris. Over time, the mineral scale obstructs the pipe and promotes corrosion. At Trenchless Today, our crew offers pipe descaling in Albany, NY, and the surrounding areas to preserve and protect your pipes.

Pipe descaling services involve the removal of the hard mineral buildup from the inside of drains and pipes. In places with high natural mineral content in the tap water, descaling protects the pipes from damage and preserves their capacity. The descaling process also reduces the risk of clogs, leaks, and other pipe and drain problems.

Importance of Pipe Descaling Services

Scale buildup in potable water pipes reduces water flow, which may negatively impact your facility. The scale affects all types of pipes, but it has the worst outcomes on cast iron. Minerals interact with the iron and cause corrosion, and we recommend cast iron pipe descaling on an annual basis to minimize the risk of rust, corrosion, and structural weakening of cast iron pipes.

We offer different sewer and drain pipe descaling processes. Chemical descaling dissolves the minerals, and we follow this with drain and pipe flushing. Electronic descaling disrupts the crystal formation and breaks it apart. We also flush the drains and pipes after this process.

Signs You Need Pipe Descaling

Once you notice any of the following, we recommend drain and sewer line descaling:

  • Slow water flow
  • White scale on faucets
  • Water leaking from pipe joints
  • Unusual drain odors
  • Frequent drain backups
  • Slow drains
