Understanding Pipe Descaling

Schedule Online

If you have noticed a frequency of backups or issues with your water, you need to consider calling in a plumber in Phoenix, AZ, or the surrounding areas to check for pipe problems. Our industry professionals at Zippity Split Plumbing will make sure your water is flowing and your drainage is efficient. Often, a sewer pipe line repair can take care of the issue. Other times, we will recommend pipe descaling.

What is Pipe Descaling?

Over the years, pipes can develop a coating of minerals, grease, or other debris that is known as scale. These deposits and coating will impede the flow of water which could lead to needing a sewer line repair.

Descaling is a process of removing the scale from the inside of a pipe before it completely deteriorates. This is often accomplished with a high powered stream of water that breaks the scale loose and flushes it out. At times, this process is part of the preparation for our other sewer repair services in Phoenix, AZ.

HowDoes ScalingAffect your Plumbing?

Every day uses of your water and plumbing creates an opportunity for scale to build up. When your pipes become coated, your water will flow more slowly and you might have a backup of sewer water in your toilet, bathtub, or sink. If you are proactive in calling a professional, you can avoid the need for a sewer line replacement.
