How We Replace Residential Cast Iron Pipes

The drain lines, also called the sewer pipes, run from most major appliances, including your showers, toilets, and sinks. Regardless of where they originate, all drain lines route back to the main sewer line. Depending on your home’s configuration, your main sewer line will either connect to a septic tank or a sewer city system. Since rerouting pipes is a complex task, it requires the assistance of a Heath, TX sewer repair expert to fix. Our first option is trying to re-route the pipes. Essentially, a rerouting project involves rearranging the pipes to connect the drains with the main sewer line. If that is not possible, a full-on replacement is the best option left. Due to the conditions common with older cast iron pipes, we typically recommend re-routing or replacement rather than settling for repairs because sooner or later the remaining cast iron pipe will end up needing service frequently. It's replacement is the best course of action, it's usually best to do this with traditional methods to remove the older cast iron pipes. New pipes are installed and properly connected once the existing pipes are removed.
