Keep reading to learn how cast iron pipe repair can revitalize your plumbing. 

History of Cast Iron Pipes in Florida

cast iron pipe repairCast iron pipes were used for plumbing as they were considered reliable and durable until approximately 1980. Cast iron pipes, unfortunately, rust and erode over time, making them susceptible to causing severe plumbing disasters; the industry then switched to using PVC pipes as they were found to be more reliable and could be produced faster and more efficiently.

Signs You Need a Cast Iron Pipe Repair

There are a few key signs that may indicate you need a cast iron pipe repair for your property. If your pipes are 50 years old or more and you experience frequent sewage backups, leaks, and strange gurgling noises, these may all indicate a cast iron pipe issue. Also, you should call a plumber if you notice bad smells,  water damage on the floors, or raised or loose tiles. Plumbers in Fort Lauderdale will investigate to determine if your cast iron pipes are cracked or have developed a belly or sag, which is common for cast iron pipes. When a belly or sag occurs in cast iron pipes, it starts to cause a buildup or blockage, which makes your entire plumbing system work inefficiently. 

The team at Broward Plumbing perform 360° camera inspections to understand fully what is going on in the pipes; this will help them decide on the next steps. 

Revitalize Your Plumbing with Cast Iron Repair

Maintenance of your cast iron pipes will help with the longevity of the pipes and have them run more efficiently over time. High-pressure water jetting will help clear clogs and buildups and allow your system to function properly. Preventative maintenance helps prevent costly repairs and damage down the road.

After a thorough investigation, if your plumber determines there is severe damage to your pipes, you may need a pipe replacement.
