Have you started to experience that some of the drains in your home are backing up more frequently? Do you still have the original cast iron drain lines? Some cast iron sewer lines installed decades ago will still last for a while, others have deteriorated to the point that it causes emergency clogs which no one wants. The real danger for cast iron pipes is corrosion. Over time, wastewater flow will etch a channel at the bottom of the pipe that – if left untreated – will erode through the pipe and weaken the pipe structure and allow for foreign material to enter the line. At the same time, wastewater can escape the pipe causing erosion and eventual bellies in the line that will lead to catastrophic collapse. Some homeowners decide to replace them all at one, or perhaps in stages. If you would like me to take a close look at your sewer lines and give you some options for the future, please call me to set up an appointment.
