Replacing Cast Iron Pipes
Replacing Cast Iron Pipes
If your home was built before 1970, there is a really good change that your water system was comprised of cast iron pipes. Replacing cast iron pipes can be quite a chore, but necessary due to deterioration. The average cast iron pipe has a life span of about 50 years. In ideal circumstances, the life span may increase to over 100 years.
Why The Problems?
Though cast iron pipes were known for their reliability, there are several reasons why they fail over time. Some installations may have had defective pipes from the beginning. Another reason for replacing cast iron pipes is that they naturally corrode over time, breaking apart and creating inevitable leaks. Such corrosion happens from the inside out in pipes and may also create blockages while deteriorating.
Signs That You Need To Watch For
While thinking of replacing cast iron pipes in your home or office, there are several signs that can force the issue:
- sewage backup on your property
- standing water in your bathtub
- discolored water coming from faucets
- smelling sewer gases such as methane
- any type of water leak that may include discolored water
- raised floor tiles in the bathroom or kitchen areas
- pest infestation, as insects are drawn to sewage smells

He gave me an estimate of what I wanted done and he was a whole lot cheaper than others that I had called. They came out the next day and fixed all my problems. I was very impressed!!
