Before PVC pipes were invented, cast iron pipes were widely used in homes built before the 1980s. Responsible for channeling water, sewage, or gas to the primary sewer line, cast iron pipes are, unfortunately, susceptible to wear and tear over time. Opting for the modern alternative—PVC pipes—not only enhances the overall value of your home but also offers a host of advantages for both your plumbing system and your wallet.
Are you experiencing recurring plumbing issues like sewage backups or leaks? Do you notice a foul smell while your water is running?
Failing to repair cast iron pipes can cause your property value to decrease. These pipes are prone to clogging due to calcium buildup, waste or corrosion. The blockage can slow down water drainage and lead to wastewater backup, resulting in sewage issues. Additionally, cast iron pipes may crack or sink into the ground due to pressure and heaviness, leading to expensive plumbing repairs.
Below is a list of possible signs that your cast iron pipes must be repaired:
Over time, sagging or bellied cast iron pipes can lead to standing water, sediment buildup, blockage, erosion, and sewage backups. The abundance of waste, such as food, toilet paper, and debris, can get trapped in the bellies of the warped pipes, making it critical to address the issue promptly to prevent hazardous backups.
To avoid messy, unsanitary, and costly plumbing repairs, our experts at Broward Plumbing recommend getting your pipes repaired or replaced.
When it comes to repairing your cast iron pipes, different repair options are available to you. You can opt for a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach or seek professional help. DIY repairs may seem like a cost-effective option, but they come with their own set of issues. Firstly, repairing cast iron pipes can be complicated and time-consuming, requiring specialized tools and knowledge. Secondly, DIY repairs may not be effective in the long run, and you may spend more money in the future if the problem persists.
On the other hand, seeking professional assistance repairing your pipes has several benefits. Broward Plumbing professionals have the expertise and experience to accurately diagnose the issue and recommend the most suitable repair method. They also have access to advanced tools and equipment, making the repair process faster and more efficient. Additionally, professional repair services from Broward Plumbing come with a warranty, giving you peace of mind if something goes wrong.
At Broward Plumbing, we use advanced technology to diagnose and solve plumbing issues promptly. Our plumbers in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, and Broward County conduct a 360º camera inspection to determine if you need a cast iron pipe repair. We check for cracks, and the condition of the pipes, and our team of experts will decide whether your pipes need maintenance or replacement.
Did you know that replacing your home with PVC pipes can increase your property value by $20,000 to $30,000+?
Maintenance: If your pipes are in stable condition and can be maintained, you can schedule maintenance services instead of replacing the pipes. Our plumbers in Broward County will use high-pressure water jetting to clear clogs and buildup, extending the lifespan of the pipes by ten years.
Replacement: Our plumbing technicians will inspect your pipes for cracks that indicate a replacement is needed. If your pipes have hairline cracks, your tubes will collapse and need to be replaced as soon as possible. We offer trenchless and non-trenchless pipe repair options depending on your preferences and needs.
Service Option: If your property has cast iron pipes on the inside and outside of your property, you can choose only to replace the outdoor pipes with PVC. Doing so extends your plumbing system's lifespan and raises your property value.
By following these tips, you can help extend the lifespan of your pipes and avoid costly repairs or replacements in the future.
