Mainlining Pipe Cleaning Only

Mainlining can return your hydraulic carrying capacity to 100 percent with a thorough cleaning. Be advised that this represents a temporary solution. The newly exposed surfaces of your system after cleaning will become sensitized to more rapid corrosion. Within two years, retuberculation can obstruct the cleaned pipe, reducting flow to its previous capacity.

The rate of retuberculation may be reduced by the addition of chemical treatments. They are costly to maintain, however, and must be continuously monitored and controlled...and seldom are they totally effective.

Of course, certain situations may call for short-range "cleaning only" considerations. Mainlining engineers and equipment are available to provide temporary relief from your flow reduction problems in such matters.
