Pipe Descaling

What is Limescale?

Limescale is often found as a hard deposit on the inner surface of old pipes and other surfaces where “hard water” has evaporated.

In addition to being unsightly and hard to clean, limescale can seriously impair the operation and serviceability of a drain or sewer.  If left, over time the problem can increase until the pipe’s diameter is significantly reduced.


What can you do?

The build-up of limescale is tough to remove and in some cases, standard drain cleaning methods such as water jetting, will not work. In these instances, more specialist equipment or higher jetting pressures may be required.

Ultra-high jetting pressure machines, Warthog and chain flail spinning jet heads or even mechanical cutters are some options available to us to help you with this issue.
