Cast iron pipes have a tendency to build up calcium and other hard water materials that will slowly reduce the usable space inside the pipe. These stubborn buildups are difficult to remove, and can cause other softer materials to get caught and block the pipe even more. Pipe descaling is our approach to clearing out the accumulation of materials inside your pipe and restoring the unobstructed flow of water. At Snowbridge, Inc., we utilize minimally-invasive techniques to reduce the stress often associated with plumbing repair.
When is Pipe Descaling Used?
Many homes and businesses contain cast iron pipes that, while strong and durable, are also susceptible to corrosion, mineral buildup, and other problems. Now, decades after cast iron was widely used for homes and businesses, many of those old-fashioned plumbing systems are experiencing frequent blockages or weakened pipes.
If the obstruction gets too bad, the added pressure in your plumbing system can cause a pipe to crack or burst. However, pipe descaling can also be used on a regular basis as preventive maintenance to avoid a plumbing emergency.
Knowing When You Need Pipe Descaling
You may have scale buildup if your sinks, bathtubs, or showers are slow to drain or dirty water comes back up in your fixtures. Strange smells or gurgling sounds can also indicate an obstruction. If you have tried clearing the clog yourself to no avail, you might need pipe descaling.
Scale buildup is tough and difficult to remove with typical household products or DIY techniques. In fact, you can make the problem worse by trying to take care of it yourself. Snowbridge Inc. has the professional-grade tools needed to descale your pipes safely and efficiently.
How Pipe Descaling is Performed
After years of experience, we have the high-quality equipment needed to remove difficult mineral deposits. We can use a number of techniques based on the diameter of your pipe, the location of the obstruction, and the severity of the buildup. We will often start with a camera inspection to determine the best course of action based on your unique circumstances.

Our trenchless technology can be fed into your pipe and operated without disrupting your landscaping or other features of your property.
