About Cast Iron Pipes
Until approximately 1975, Cast iron was widely used for residential plumbing in Florida, at which point, builders turned to PVC.
Under normal conditions cast iron sewer lines have an average life span of 50 years. In less than ideal conditions like the conditions in coastal Florida areas, cast iron pipes often deteriorate, channel or collapse within 25-50 years. For homes 50 years or older erected in areas with high salt content, there are likely signs of channeling, deterioration and complete failure.
Why Do Cast Iron Pipes Fail?
The most frequent cause of Cast Iron deterioration and failure is corrosion. The most common sources of corrosion are hydrogen sulfide and other acids. Salt and moisture-rich environments like those found in South Florida, can accelerate corrosion. In coastal areas of Florida as well as certain inland areas with high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide, cast iron sewer lines may only last 25 years.
Other sources of pipe corrosion include:
- Organic growths
- Clay soils
- Acidic sewage
- Improper installation
- Construction activities
What Are The Signs? How Will This effect My Home?
Damaged cast iron pipes usually display at least one of the following:
- Water backups in toilet, shower, laundry and kitchen
- Slow drains
- Foul smells (rotten egg smells)
- Roach infestation
- Water damage
- Broken or cracked tile
- Stained or discolored grout lines and tile
- Raw sewage back ups
Cast iron pipes can also lower your home value by as much as 20% because homes with this outdated system fail inspection
