Cleaner Pipes for Healthier Bodies

Clean water is something most of us take for granted. Certainly, in western countries anyone turning on a tap to have a drink of water have certain expectations as to the state of the water they are drinking. We are told drinking plenty of water on a daily basis improves our health, but what if the water we are drinking is not as healthy as it could be?

Over time, pipes corrode and the number of minerals in the water supplies can lead to the gradual build-up of calcium in your pipes. The accumulation of calcium poses both a risk to your health and a clogging up of your pipes. Once the pipes are blocked up, not only are you drinking unhealthy water but you could be facing expensive pipe repairs or even more expensive pipe replacements.

Replacing or repairing the pipes to improve the water quality does not have to cost the earth or have a big environmental impact. It is possible to try and clean your pipes but it is not the easiest of tasks. To try and clean your pipes yourself, you will need to follow these steps:

First, after recognising you have a problem with the pipes, there is the traditional methods – vinegar, water, baking soda, boiling water and hydrochloric acid are all commonly used methods to clean your pipes, but unless used on a very regular basis, these can have only limited effect.  It’s good practice to use all the above on a regular basis – remember, prevention is better than the cure.

If these do not work and you are still finding that the pipes are blocked and the water you are drinking is not the healthiest, then it is time to call in the professionals.

Environmentally friendly pipe repair uses video technology to pinpoint exactly where the problems are and the scale of the problems. This means that the whole repair process is far more efficient. No wasteful pipe replacing and the impact upon the environment as well as the wallet is kept to a minimum.

A professional plumbing and pipe repair company would use powerful air blowers to clean the pipes and remove the oxidation in the existing pipes. Once the corrosion has been removed, it is good practice to fill the pipes with an epoxy liquid. This coats the pipes in a safe liquid which helps keep them clean and the water healthy.

Cleaning your pipes is good for your house, good for the environment and most importantly, good for you. Drinking water with too many minerals in, especially calcium, can cause you harm over the long term. Get your pipes cleaned for a better home, better water and a better you.
