WHY INSPECTING YOUR CAST IRON PIPES IS IMPORTANT
Although cast iron pipes were a popular choice in homes built from the early 1900s to around the mid-eighties, corrosion and tree root intrusion can cause them to fail over time, creating a ticking time bomb that leaves your home exposed to interior and exterior leaks of water and sewage. Regular maintenance of old cast iron pipes is important to prevent clogs. Custom Plumbing uses special tools to clean and remove blockages, helping to prevent clogs before they become more serious and result in costly repairs. Custom Plumbing has more than 19 years’ of experience helping to protect, service, and if necessary, replace cast iron pipes in Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Glendale, Tempe, Goodyear, Gilbert and across Arizona with just one call.
Cast Iron Pipes Leaks
Cast iron pipes have a long lifespan, but in time they can become brittle and more likely to crack. As they approach the end of their lifespan, their inner surface can become corroded, which tends to trap waste and debris, causing more serious issues like backed up toilets and drains. Unrepaired cracks can also cause leaks within the walls of your home that can go unchecked for quite some time, until dangerous mold causes allergies and more serious health risks. Mold can also quickly spread to your walls, floors and furniture, causing costly repairs. Repairing cast iron pipe leaks before they get worse can make a huge difference to your pocketbook, stress level and the health of your family!
Cast Iron Pipe Repairs
Cast iron plumbing can have a life expectancy of as short as 25 years below ground. You know your cast iron pans that you learn to carefully take care of so they don’t rust? Your pipes are the same. Cast iron can rust, and it’s wet underground, plus you run water through it, so it begins to deteriorate as soon as it’s installed, and it will fail in time. Using soap or detergent accelerates the damage to the inside of the pipe. Now we’re not suggesting that you stop using soap, but life at home does drop the lifespan of your plumbing system. Chemical drain cleaners like Draino can speed up decay even further. When your cast iron plumbing eventually does fail, it’s critical to address the problem quickly to prevent water damage to your home and yard. In some cases, our plumbers may be able to patch or reline the pipes to repair them, or replace a section of pipe. But if part of your plumbing has experienced an issue, the rest isn’t far behind, so it may be cheaper, in the long run, to just replace it. Regular maintenance and plumbing inspections are important to find issues early and prevent more costly repairs in the future.
Cast Iron Pipe Leak Detection
Some leaks are found by homeowners but finding those telltale water spots on the wall, floor or ceiling, or perhaps by finding evidence of mold. Hearing water running in the walls is also a key sign. But by this time, significant damage has been done to your home. If the leak occurs in the slab, a homeowner may not find it until there is significant structural damage. Custom Plumbing has the experts and equipment to detect and repair cast iron pipe leaks quickly and effectively. Our leak-locating experts will pinpoint the source to minimize disruption to your home and property.
