Do you live in a home that was built before 1975? If it was and you’re experiencing plumbing issues, such as backups, slow drains, mold, faulty pipes, or others, you may have cast-iron pipes that are failing.
Truth be told, thousands of Florida homeowners have filed lawsuits against insurance companies that either wanted to throw out their claims or even offer small payments to replace plumbing failure due to cast iron pipe damage.
You might be wondering how this could be possible – after all, why would someone fit my home with cast iron plumbing if it was set up to fail? Here are some facts – and clues to look out for!
What exactly is a cast iron pipe?
The history of cast iron pipes goes a long way back. Made from gray cast iron, which is a graphitic microstructure, these pipes were used as pressure pipes to transport water, gas and sewage, as well as for water drainage in the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
Although cast iron plumbing systems were commonly used throughout the United States, they deteriorate over time, leading to breaks and back-ups.
The lifespan of a cast-iron system is typically limited to between 40 and 50 years, but it is not uncommon for these systems to develop problems at 25 years or less.
So, how do I know if my pipes are failing and need replacement?
A staggering 2.5 million Florida homes could face early cast iron pipe failure, caused by the salt and moisture-rich environment.
