JD Drains are the leading drain descaling company in Berkshire.

We specialise in drain pipe descaling using high pressure water jetting techniques.

Our advanced hydro-jetting vans have a variety of tools that are capable of cutting away hard scale deposits from your drains, providing thorough cleansing of the pipes.

This technique removes scale without the need to dig down to or around the pipes, bringing you a cost-effective alternative to traditional drainage descaling solutions.

Do I need to descale my drains?

If you’ve previously had your drains cleared, but you’ve noticed them clogging again, you might need to consider drain descaling.

Drain descaling is required when hardened mineral deposits have built up inside the drains and pipework. It’s most commonly required in hard water areas, such as Reading, Slough and the county of Berkshire.

Symptoms of highly scaled-up drains

Drains and pipework are more likely to get scaled up in hard water areas – the South East is particularly affected by this issue.

Common complaints include bad smells emanating from kitchen sinks or bathroom wastes; back surges of dirty water into the kitchen sink or bath; Reduced water flow, frequent blockages and white stains on pipes, taps, shower heads and sinks are some most common signs of limescale.

Below are some tips that will help keep your drains flowing to their full capacity and prevent the need for costly repairs and clearances.
