Cast Iron Pipe is Broken

Cast Iron Pipe is Broken

Location:

Fort Lauderdale FL, 33304 (Cast Iron Pipe is Broken)

Cause of Problem:

Cast Iron Pipe Deteriorated.

Resolution:

At the time of installation cast iron pipe was the best option for sewer systems on residential homes! Some commercial buildings and high rises are still using it today as per Florida Building Code. When cast iron pipe is broken it will cause lots or issues. Issues include, but are not limited to leaks, clogs, smells, bugs, etc. In the picture you can see a the cast iron pipe is broken on the vertical stack. This was just normal wear and tear that caused this pipe to break! Cast iron pipe is only rated to last 35-50 years down here is South Florida due to our conditions. Some sewer systems may last longer, others may not even make the minimum life expectancy!

The key to prolonging life of your system is have caution of what is going down the drains. Avoid any harsh chemicals such as acids! Which maybe found in drain maintenance products/drain openers.

This particular job there was water leaking from the wall of this high rise. When the Rhino Rooter plumber started to investigate he found the cast iron pipe is broken! A crack formed and was allowing water to leak out. The drywall was removed and the plumbers began working to remove the pipe. A new section of cast iron was install. PVC could not be used for this application due to requirements in the Florida Building Code. If your having plumbing problems or just have some questions call us!
