The south-east of England is a 'hard water' area. This hard water creates scale in pipework. Drainage systems across London, have, for years suffered from reduced flow due to hard water scale building up within the pipework. The build- up of limescale is very difficult to remove and in some cases, normal drain cleaning methods such as water jetting, will not work. In these instances more specialist equipment or higher jetting pressures may be required.

But fear not! We have specialist equipment which has been designed to remove this scale whilst preserving the integrity of the pipes/sewers. The equipment we use at First Choice Drainage Solutions is considered the very best on the market. We have invested in these machines and have trained all engineers in the safe use of them.

Descale pipes

This permits us to carry out drain descaling works on a wide variety of pipework including stacks, and main drains. This work is often carried out as part of routine maintenance on systems which have suffered from blockage caused by hard water scale. Warthog and chain flail spinning jet heads or even mechanical cutters are some of the options available to us to help assist you with this issue.
