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.
Trenchless Pipe Lining Repair in homes, condos, townhomes and other residential environments is usually much cheaper then traditional pipe repair and the home owner also saves money on repairs that would be needed from digging up flooring, tearing down walls or excavating driveways and sidewalks.
Commercial Pipe Lining Service Larger buildings that have muti-uses or multi-tenants require our commercial pipelining service for cast iron. In most cases, this service can be performed on the same day with zero disruption to the occupants of the building. We can perform most repairs in the same day but a property evaluation is mandatory to provide accurate cast iron pipelining time frames.
Residential Pipe Lining Service can be used to repair clay, pvc and cast iron which deteriorate over time. Many home and condo owners notice the problem when they see a spike in their water bill or their water has a rusty color or bad taste to the water. In the past the only option was to dig up flooring and cut into walls to replace pipes, but we can do it without any damage. Most pipe lining jobs take less then a day and your home will be left clean and damage free.
Typical Pipe Lining Process For Cast Iron:
- We locate the damaged pipe using CCTV equipment.
- The pipes are then cleaned; de scaled and root removal.
- Pipe lining epoxy is embedded into the liner and inserted into the pipe for installation.
- After the pipe has finished curing (3 hours) it is inspected, tested and water service is restored to the new refurbished / relined pipe.
