Understanding Cast Iron Piping Systems

Cast iron plumbing parts have been around for centuries, and a cast iron sewer pipe or cast iron stack could be over 100 years old! Cast iron piping systems have made indoor plumbing a reality and cast iron has been proven reliable for its sturdiness and flexibility.

Like cast iron pans in the kitchen, cast iron stacks or piping systems are still used today for their fire resistance. Cast iron can also be cost-effective in commercial plumbing, although other, equally durable materials are available for any budget.

What to Know About Cast Iron Plumbing Systems?

There are many pros to using cast iron pipes, but several factors can also impact its lifespan.
Here’s what to know:

  • Cast iron piping is generally long-lasting, from 40 years to over 100 years for a durable cast iron stack 
  • Quality standards in cast iron pipes can be different by country 
  • Cast iron plumbing systems must be installed on the correct slope
  • Was the cast iron piping’s welded seam installed downwards
  • Tree roots and poor soil conditions can also damage cast iron.

Chemicals and cleaners poured down any drain can also affect its long-term durability.

Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing Cast Iron Pipe Replacement Services

Do you require a cast iron pipe repair sleeve or a removal of old cast iron?

As cast iron repair and replacement experts, we use the latest techniques to remove old cast iron in an environmentally friendly way. We can transition your plumbing system to modern and efficient materials, including PVC pipe or HDPE.

Your plumbing problem may not be old cast iron pipes but more hazardous and uninsurable Polybutylene (Poly-B) pipes.

Removing and replacing Poly-B pipes for safer, longer-lasting plumbing systems is a good idea for your health and peace of mind.

Challenges with Old Cast Iron Pipes

When old cast iron piping systems become inefficient, corrosion-resistant alternatives like ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) can be the best option.

Cast iron piping systems often experience these challenges over time:

  • The rough internal surface of cast iron catches debris, resulting in a slow drain or sewer backups due to blockages
  • The metal in cast iron can rust from the inside out
  • Pinholes form in aboveground cast iron piping and bigger holes form when cast iron rots underground from the bottom up.

Are your exposed cast iron pipes rusty, or is water backing up from your floor drains? Call Dr. Pipe for professional cast iron pipe repair services in Toronto!
