Hot water - low pressure - and galvanized pipes

Ok as the topic states I have hot water with low pressure and galvanized plumbing. I suspect the pipes are clogged and want to avoid replacing it all if I can.

Is there a product that can clear blockages from galvanized pipe? If so, what is the name and where can I find it?

Will I have to bite the bullet and replace the pipies?

Water pipes

Im sorry But Yes take them out now. If you get a cleaner in them you could not drink any of the water. If it got just some of the gunk out it would come lose and next get in all of the water valves and mess things up for you.With pipes that full of junk and ill bet that old . PUT NEW ONES IN. been there done that IT dont work ED

Cool

Ed's right. The only solution to galvanized is to replace it. It will only continue to scale up inside restricting the water flow until it plugs up completely.
Good Luck!
Mike
