How does pipe corrosion occur?
Pipes that are under constant stress are very likely to corrode and fracture. Additionally, poor construction, improper pipe materials, or old pipes can contribute to pipe corrosion. For example, a cast iron pipe is much more likely to corrode faster than concrete pipes. Additionally, pipes with joints made of metal, like brass or copper, are much more likely to collapse and become weak due to corrosion.
Pipe corrosion can also occur due to wear and tear or overall use and improper maintenance. Maintenance is key in keeping a plumbing system running smoothly and at optimal condition. Maintenance can include consistent inspections, checkups for repairs, or drain cleaning services to keep your pipes clean and clear.
Solving Pipe Corrosion
The first way to resolve pipe corrosion is to have an inspection of your property’s plumbing system. Inspections are the safest bet to know about what’s going on inside your pipes. Marvel Sewer & Drain offers camera inspections as a great way to fully inspect your pipes and an understand of your plumbing system.
Second, drain cleaning services such as snaking or hydro jetting may be a great way to resolve pipe corrosion. Pipe corrosion is oftentimes present due to use or abuse of your pipes, which can cause issues such as clogs or buildup. Scale and sediment can also contribute to issues with pipe corrosion. Drain cleaning services can help relieve some of these worries by assuring you that we know exactly what’s going on, where, and the best way to fix it.
