A Vital Option

Cast iron pipes were extremely common until the late 20th century. This is when the inherent problems associated with these pipes became clear – mainly that they're highly susceptible to rust, corrosion, cracks, and leaks. Keep in mind that repairs are a short-term solution. While it may cost significantly less upfront, what it does, is simply delay the inevitability of replacements.

We realize cast iron pipe replacement is an investment, but it's one that can easily pay off thanks to benefits that include:

  • Fewer repair expenses
  • Improved property and home value
  • Better-performing drains
  • Reduced risk of costly foundation/slab damage

Common Issues Affecting Cast Iron Pipes

These outdated pipes can belly or shift due to the heaviness of this material. Usually starting on the inside, corrosion is another common source of cast iron pipe damage. As cast iron pipes can corrode slowly, you may not realize it's an issue until you start noticing signs of a leak or related damage. These include:

  • Foundation and/or property damage
  • Wall movement or shifting
  • Noticeable odors
  • Recurring drain problems

How We Replace Cast Iron Pipes

We offer solutions tailored to the needs of our residential clients. With cast iron pipe replacement, we usually recommend rerouting, which involves abandoning the cast iron pipes and creating a new connection. This saves you from the hassle of massive amounts of tunneling. If that is not a viable option, a full replacement will be the best possible solution left since repairs aren't cost-effective or practical. The most effective method is to remove the old cast iron pipes so that new ones made from a more reliable material can be installed.
