Portage Park, Illinois -
Rocket Plumbing and Drain Cleaning, a company based in Chicago, IL, has recently released a cast iron pipe descaling video that demonstrates a method that can offer up to 74 percent savings for homeowners and other property owners when they need repiping. Cast iron pipes tend to have more severe scaling compared to other pipes because over time their inner surfaces get coated with iron oxide, including magnesium and calcium salts. As time goes by, the rust and mineral deposits inside the cast iron pipes become thicker and catch grime and solids that flow through the pipe, considerably reducing the cross-section of the pipe and severely affecting the flow. Typically, this kind of problem will require repiping but it is shown in the video that descaling offers a much less expensive alternative.
Brian McMahon, President of Rocket Plumbing, explains, “In cast-iron sewer pipes, corrosion deposits form naturally over time and attach to the pipe’s inner walls, shrinking the pipe interior and damaging the pipe. Cast iron pipes tend to have more severe scaling because their inner surfaces become coated with iron oxide as well as calcium and magnesium salts. When a pipe develops a thick, uneven layer of mineral and rust deposits, it begins to snag any solids and grime that flow past the rough sections. We have been investing in the latest innovative technology, and one of these is the most up-to-date descaling equipment that allows homeowners to reduce their expenses by up to 74 percent compared to repiping.”
Cast iron pipe descaling offers a less expensive solution for a clogged pipe, such as a sewer pipe. Rocket Plumbing utilizes a drain cleaning machine that was originally designed in Finland and has been used extensively in the UK. It has a rotating component with a radius that is about the size of the inner radius of the pipe and this breaks down and removes the scales while it goes through the pipe. This basically restores the pipe to it original condition where there are no scales inside the pipe and it can perform its function properly.
