Sewer Pipe Drain Cleaning & Descaling

Sewer Pipe Cleaning & Descaling

Pipelining Technologies offers sewer line cleaning and descaling by utilizing mechanical (dry) and/or non-mechanical (hydro) means. Mechanical cleaning includes equipment that is specifically designed to protect your pipes while eliminating the scale and fat/oil/grease buildup inside your lines. This type of cleaning and descaling restores pipes to their near original diameter, eliminates hang-ups, and thereby usually increases flow. 

Mechanical cleaning is required prior to pipe lining rehabilitation. It prepares the pipes for optimal usage and allows for a smooth, consistent lining application. Not all drainage lines require pipe lining. Many customers are happy to learn that their immediate issues are resolved from mechanical and/or non-mechanical cleaning. A comprehensive video inspection serves to document the pipes’ conditions.

Yes, You Should Be Cleaning Your Pipes

Plumbing professionals recommend that in any home, residential building, or business, it is a good idea to get your drains examined and cleaned once every two years. But if you notice a problem, for example, your shower water drains slowly, or there is a smell coming from your drain, you may have a clog that should be dealt with sooner rather than later.

Leading signs of blockages:

  • Slow draining of water
  • Backup in shower/tub
  • Odor/sewer gas smell
  • Backups in toilets

Sewer pipe cleaning and descaling is a sound investment for the longevity of your pipelines. Proper maintenance can prolong the life of your pipes.

Health Dangers of Sewage Backups

Reminder – Avoid personal contact with sewage. Contact with raw sewage can be potentially dangerous to your health. Bacteria carrying diseases from Gastroenteritis to Hepatitis A are found in sewage and should be avoided.

Augusta University Infectious Disease Chief Dr. Jose Vazquez has said, “…at least 10 million people are exposed to raw sewage and out of those at least 10 percent get infected and frequently get hospitalized.”

If you encounter a sewage backup on your property, either indoors or outdoors, call a licensed plumber to take care of the emergency situation. They receive additional vaccinations and wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while using specialized equipment designed to eliminate blockages.

Get An Inside View

Once the backup is cleared and the sewage is resolved, it is time to begin a long-term plan to correct your sewer pipe problem. A diagnostic video inspection is the best way to see what is happening inside your system.

If your pipes are in relatively good condition, a total cleaning and descaling may allow for additional years of usage. The hydro and dry cleaning techniques can restore the pipes’ to near full diameter while removing significant buildup, scaling, and create a smoother route for drainage. Most customers find that flow is increased after cleaning.

Add Cleaning & Descaling to Your Maintenance

A proactive approach to maintenance should include your sewer and rainwater drainage systems. Schedule a total home cleaning every two years to get the most out of your pipes.

What makes trenchless sewer repair better than traditional sewer repair methods?

Trenchless sewer repair eliminates the need for large-scale destruction of floors and landscaped areas to conventionally replace the damaged pipes, the costs associated with replacing those surfaces, and limits the exposure to health and environmental risks created by major sewer excavations.

When is the city responsible for sewer lines and sewer backups?

Individual municipalities have varying rules regarding the line where private property (including underground drainage) becomes public property. Generally, your private sewer main, or lateral, becomes the responsibility of the city at the tap to the city sewer. Blockages and backups in the city sewer system can cause backups on private property, so identifying the location of the blockage is very important as it relates to responsibility.

How long does it usually take to do a trenchless sewer repair job?

In residential homes, a good rule of thumb is “one liner per day.” For example, if your home has a building main, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a laundry, that is five individual liners, hence five days of work. On large-scale commercial or high-rise condominium projects, more aggressive timelines are typical, with anywhere from two to four liner installations a day.

Is there a warranty on the work that is done and the materials?

Pipelining Technologies offers a full five (5) year parts AND labor warranty on every pipe lining job. This is four years more than a conventional Plumber’s one-year warranty and pipe lining carries a transferrable minimum fifty (50) year life-use expectancy.

Would we have to leave the home or business while the work is being done?

No. Pipelining Technologies works to stagger brief water shutoffs in a way that residential customers will have some facilities to use each day of the project. Since pipe lining can be performed in a much shorter timeframe than pipe replacement, there are typically only a few days of slight inconvenience in comparison to several weeks of water shut off with conventional pipe replacement.

Does trenchless sewer repair work on tall buildings such as apartments or condominiums?

Lining of vertical stacks in high-rise buildings is amongst the most cost effective and time saving applications of trenchless pipe lining, also known as CIPP, cured-in-place pipe. Conventional replacement of a vertical stack on a building of significant height can take weeks, even months to complete, and the residents are without water to the affected facilities for the entire time. Pipe lining can accomplish the same job in two days by lining from the roof continuously to the underground with little to no need to enter individual units.

3-Steps to Trenchless Pipe Lining

Video Inspection

We begin all pipe lining projects with a detailed forensic study of the existing pipe system by means of a HD video camera inspection. A digital copy of the video is yours to keep.

Sewer Pipe Cleaning

The sewer system is cleaned using hydro (water) jetting and/or a mechanical cleaning process that removes scale, buildup, debris, blockages and restores flow in the existing pipes. 

Lining & Reinstatement

Your cleaned pipes are lined with an epoxy saturated tube (liner). The tube hardens and the new structural line becomes stronger than PVC. Robotic equipment is used to reopen branch lines.
