Peppered with trees that include cedar elms and an assortment of oak species, Lancaster is also a city with a long history dating to the 1850s.

If you have concerns about your home's pipes, reach out to In-House Plumbing Company to discuss cast iron pipe replacement in Lancaster, TX.

The Importance and The Benefits

We know pipes and the areas we serve well thanks to our many years of local experience. This is why we recommend replacing aging and damaged cast iron pipes instead of relying on the short-term benefits of repairs. It's ultimately a step that can pay off well over the coming years thanks to the many benefits involved with this process. These include:

  • Cutting down on pipe repair costs
  • Protecting your property from water/sewage damage
  • Improving how your home's drains work
  • Boosting your property's value

The Common Signs of Cast Iron Pipe Issues

Sagging or "bellying" is a common cast iron pipe issue because of the heaviness of cast iron. Heavy cast iron pipes are also susceptible to misalignment. Corrosion is another common problem that often affects cast iron sewer lines over time. This often results in leaks and related foundation or property damage. Signs indicating you likely have cast iron pipe issues that could justify replacement include:

  • Slab and/or foundation damage
  • Unexplained wet spots
  • Damage to floors, walls, and other parts of your home's main structures
  • Lingering or strong sewer odors

How We Replace Cast Iron Pipes

First and foremost, the preferred method is to reroute cast iron pipes when it's possible to do so. What this means is that the existing pipes are abandoned entirely and we will establish a new connection to redirect flow. Because of the characteristics associated with cast iron pipes, replacement is what we may have to recommend if rerouting is not possible. In this instance, the pipes are removed and replaced with new ones made from materials that are more capable of standing up well to many years of use.
