How Pipe Descaling Works

To understand pipe descaling, it’s important to understand what scale is. As water flows through your pipes, it deposits minerals inside of them. This makes the pipe rough instead of smooth, which means that it catches other debris as it flows by. Over time, this layer of minerals and debris becomes hard. This is scale.


A little bit of scale isn’t a big deal, but layers of it can build upon each other. Over time, you can get so much scale in your pipes that the water and waste can’t get through anymore. This is when you need to descale your plumbing pipes. You may also need to think about descaling your sewer pipe if you’re having frequent backups and a camera inspection shows scale there.

Our plumbers all know how to descale plumbing pipes safely and efficiently. Most of the time, we’ll use hydro jetting, a process of shooting a concentrated stream of water down your pipes, to break up the scale. At that point, we may need to remove the pieces or we may be able to flush them down the line. The important thing is that we get rid of them so they can’t cause any more problems!
