Professional Cast Iron Rehabilitation Save Those Pipe’s
Hydrojetting may not be sufficient for proper descaling. Many plumbers think a simple sewer line cleaning with high-pressure water will remove scale. With the right nozzles and cleaning tool (head) on the end of the hose, this equipment is capable of removing scale. But simply using high-pressure water will, more often than not, fail to remove the bulk of the deposits.
Descaling cast iron pipe or removing scale build up in cast iron pipe is becoming more common. There are two different ways to approach this: wet or dry. Superior Drain Cleaning Hydro Jet & Rooter currently uses the wet approach utilizing a hydro jetter accompanied with a special jetting nozzle that rotates a chain inside the pipe. The chain is cut to length to insure a proper cleaning of the interior pipe walls. When using this method the pipe is being flushed with the water at the same time. Removing scale from cast iron pipe can be a time-consuming task, but it can save a lot of money for the customer as they can avoid digging and replacing pipes and sometimes even avoiding costly pipe lining .
The cost for this more advanced and extensive process is going to be more expensive. It ranges from $550 to $2,500. There is more maintenance, and the cost of replacing these specialized nozzles are not cheap. Still, depending on your situation, it may be worth it for that more complete, permanent clean!
