Cast Iron Pipe Repair


Cast iron pipes can be a real problem. Some homes function perfectly fine with cast iron while other homes that have cast iron pipes experience backups, clogged drains or entire sanitary sewer system failures. These cases require our cast iron pipe repair team. Cast iron pipes can be found in homes all across the southeast. 

Just because you have cast iron pipes does not mean they need a full replacement. They can act as a cast iron host pipe for a new structural cured in place pipe liner. This process is often called residential pipelining or trenchless pipelining for laterals.

Residential Pipe Lining is one of the biggest breakthroughs in home plumbing technology in the past 50 years. With this new CIPP (Cured-In-Place Pipe) technology we are able to repair damaged pipes without having to dig, excavate or demolish your home flooring, walls, landscaping, driveways or sidewalks.

Most pipe lining jobs take less than a day and your home will be left clean and damage-free.


Typical Pipe Lining Process For Cast Iron:

  1. We locate the damaged pipe using CCTV equipment.
  2. The pipes are then cleaned; de scaled and root removal.
  3. Pipe lining epoxy is embedded into the liner and inserted into the pipe for installation.
  4. After the pipe has finished curing (3 hours) it is inspected, tested and water service is restored to the new refurbished / relined pipe.

Blue Works Plumbing: Specializing in the Repair of Cast Iron Pipe Systems in Commercial Properties

In commercial properties, the durability of your plumbing is crucial to your operations. Cast iron pipes, once the standard in plumbing, are particularly susceptible to a range of problems as they age. At Blue Works Plumbing, we specialize in addressing these issues through advanced lining, coating, and replacement techniques, tailored specifically for commercial applications.

Common Issues with Cast Iron Pipes

Cast iron pipes are prone to several types of failures:

  1. Corrosion: Over time, cast iron pipes can corrode, leading to leaks and structural weakness.
  2. Scaling: The inner walls of these pipes can develop scale buildup, reducing water flow and increasing the risk of blockages.
  3. Cracking: Due to their brittleness, cast iron pipes can crack under pressure or due to ground movement.
  4. Joint Failure: The joints in cast iron piping can fail, leading to leaks and water damage.

These issues not only compromise the plumbing system but can also lead to significant water damage and costly repairs if not addressed promptly.

At Blue Works Plumbing, we understand the unique challenges posed by cast iron pipes in commercial settings. Our repair solutions are designed to be minimally invasive and maximally effective:
