Get rid of mineral buildup in sewer drain???
 
Our company specializes in lateral drain lining. To do proper job we have completely clean a drain pipe otherwise Its going to be bums inside the pipe. We use K-60 and sometimes pushing rods, but few times we can’t get rid of mineral builds up. Any idea how to solve this problem. Power washing will do the job???
Thanks Guys.

Use some type of acidic formula to clean the mineral build up. Be careful to not let the solution stay on the surface for too long, because it may damage the lining, but the acid will eat away at the deposits.
