According to some estimates, nearly 80 million homes in the United States have cast iron pipes. This is more likely to be the case if you have a home that was built before the 1980s. While more common in older homes, cast iron is prone to several issues. If you are experiencing problems with your plumbing, you may benefit from trenchless sewer repair in Tucson, AZ from RAM Plumbing. We discuss more below:
Trenchless Techniques Cover Minor Flaws
The most common approach to trenchless pipe repair is pipe lining. This is the trenchless service we may recommend if you have cast iron pipes that are still stable but affected by minor flaws and cracks. With this service, a liner is used to apply a new coating to the inside of the pipe.
Trenchless Methods Strengthen Older Cast Iron Pipes
Trenchless pipe lining also strengthens older cast iron pipes with a new durable interior coating. What the new coating does is give an otherwise structurally sound cast iron pipe some added strength and durability. You can then enjoy the many benefits that well-functioning cast iron pipes have to offer for many more years.
We Can Fix Your Cast Iron Pipes without Ruining Your Landscape
One other benefit of trenchless sewer replacement and repair is the ability to minimize or eliminate the need for digging. If you have an older home with cast iron pipes, this means you can move forward with pipe repair and restoration efforts without having to worry about added landscape cleanup costs.
