What Are the Benefits of Descaling Your Cast Iron Pipes?

Cast iron pipes are a common plumbing material used in older homes due to their durability and longevity. If this is the first time you’ve heard about the process of descaling your cast iron pipes, you may be wondering whether this step is really necessary. 

However, over time, these pipes can develop scale buildup, which is a layer of minerals, rust, and debris that accumulates on the interior walls of the pipes. This can lead to reduced water flow, clogs, and even pipe corrosion. 

Descaling cast iron pipes is will remove this buildup and restore your pipes to their original condition, as well as prevent further damage. There are several advantages you will gain by speaking to a professional about descaling your sewers and drains.

Some of the benefits that come from full, professional descaling include:

  • Increasing the lifespan of your sewers and drains anywhere between 35 and 50 more years
  • Improving the ability to drain water from toilets, sinks, and bathtubs
  • Preventing bad smells from lingering within the pipes
  • Saving you money repeatedly spent on over-the-counter drain cleaners and short-term scale removers

How Long Does Descaling Take?

Like any other plumbing job, the length of time that it takes to descale your drains or sewers all depends on how much care you have taken on protecting your pipes from clogs and corrosive materials. The amount of maintenance that your pipes have previously received affects this as well. If you have been consistent in scheduling your descaling services, and if you have been careful not to dump grease or harsh chemicals down the pipes, the process of descaling may only take around an hour. 

However, if there has been a lot of build-up over the course of several years, the process could take longer. If you have not scheduled descaling for a long time, it is a good idea to consult with our technicians at Rock Solid Drains, so that we can begin arranging an appointment.

How to Clean Cast Iron Pipes

The process of cleaning your cast iron pipes is known as descaling. Descaling cast iron pipes requires specialized equipment and expertise.

Here's how they do it:

  • Inspection: The team at Rock Solid Drains will first conduct a thorough inspection of your cast iron pipes using advanced video inspection technology to inspect the line and determine the extent of the scale buildup and identify any other potential issues. 
  • Descaling: Once it is clear where your pipes need to be descaled, a dedicated cable with chain links will be inserted into the pipes. These chain links are rigged with tough nail scrapers made of steel. The nails are set to spin at rapid speeds, and the immense amount of friction allows them to file down the debris in the pipes. 
  • Cleaning: After descaling, all the deposits are then flushed down with powerful jets of water, so they will not simply collect again.
  • Inspection and Maintenance: Finally, Rock Solid Drains will conduct a post-descale inspection to ensure that the pipes are clean and functioning optimally. They will also provide recommendations on how to maintain your cast iron pipes to prevent future scale buildup and extend their lifespan.
