The Common Problems With Cast Iron Pipes

Cast iron pipes are usually affected by corrosion first. This is a slow and steady process that can go undetected for many years until you start noticing signs of a problem. They can also be affected by movements in the soil, pipe "bellying" or sagging, and a loss of structural integrity from tree root damage. Signs it's time to call us about cast iron pipe replacement include:

  • Soggy spots on your lawn or by your foundation
  • Slab cracks
  • Lingering or strong sewer odors
  • Structural damage that may extend to your walls or floors

How We Replace Cast Iron Pipes

We found from our years of experience that rather than repair, it's best to fully replace aging or damaged cast iron pipes. Our first option is through re-routing. This involves finding a new entry and exit point for your pipe. Where the pipes will be rerouted depends on many factors that we will discuss with you prior to beginning any rerouting work. This method often saves us from significant amounts of tunneling when compared to a full replacement. If rerouting is not an option, a full replacement using the traditional method of digging and removing the pipe, is the best possible course of action. Once the damaged pipe is removed, new ones can be inserted within the same space. The new pipes are made of safe, durable materials that are more resistant to corrosion and tree root intrusions.
