In Florida alone, nearly two and a half million homes suffer from this problem and need urgent attention.

Plumbing services often encounter issues with cast iron pipes, which have been used in many different plumbing systems throughout the United States for over a hundred years. However, they do deteriorate over time, with a lifespan of only between 40 and 50 years. They can even begin to develop problems at 25 years old, depending on certain circumstances.

These Are All Tell-Tale Signs of a Failed Cast Iron Plumbing System Does this Sound Familiar?


What are the advantages of cast iron plumbing over other materials?
Cast iron plumbing offers several advantages, including durability, longevity, and resistance to corrosion, making it a superior choice for plumbing services. It can withstand high pressure and is less prone to damage from impact compared to materials like PVC or copper. Additionally, cast iron pipes have superior soundproofing properties, reducing noise from water flow within the plumbing system, enhancing the overall quality of plumbing services.
exceptional lifespan, often lasting anywhere from 75 to 100 years or more with proper maintenance. However, the actual longevity depends on various factors such as water quality, installation quality, and exposure to corrosive elements. Regular inspections and maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of cast iron plumbing systems
Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of cast iron plumbing. This includes periodic inspections for signs of corrosion, leaks, or blockages. Cleaning the pipes to remove debris and buildup is also crucial. Additionally, applying protective coatings or liners may be recommended to prevent corrosion and extend the lifespan of the plumbing system.


Cast iron pipe was designed to last 50 years. The truth is there are so many variables and factors that contribute to the deterioration of cast iron pipe. And while there’s no way to know when your pipe will go bad, there is no doubt that they will go bad.
The last houses constructed with cast iron pipe in DFW were built around 1986. However, many houses in the area were built using PVC pipe even as far back as the late 1970s.
The cast iron on each side of the repair will go bad e.g. crumble, crack, break, leak, etc. That’s just the nature of the material. As the metal repeatedly comes into contact with the wastewater that runs through it, it deteriorates.


When dealing with cast iron sewer pipes, especially older ones, it often doesn’t make sense to locate or repair the leak or leaks. Instead, considering cast iron pipe replacement might be more practical and cost-effective.

Now we understand not everyone can afford to replace all of the cast iron pipes under a slab at once. This is why some might opt for the repair instead. However, affordability, or lack thereof, makes it that much more important to consider all your options, including water leak detection services. It’s especially important to take a long-term view rather than an immediate one.

Sometimes it is possible to replace part of the pipe now and some of it later. And sometimes there’s another option altogether.

Ted and his crew are excellent and professional. They came in and took care of our broken pipe with no delay. Price was more than reasonable. Totally recommend them and in fact we are prepared to use them to replace all our whole cast iron plumbing which is faulty.

Brian listened patiently to all our concerns and addressed each one with detailed explanations. Honest and professional and fair priced. Will be using Ted’s Plumbing again and recommend them to anyone who needs a plumber.

Can cast iron plumbing be repaired?

Yes, cast iron plumbing can be repaired. Smaller issues, like minor cracks or leaks, can often be fixed using clamping or epoxy compounds. More severe damage might require replacing sections of the pipe.

Whether to replace cast iron plumbing depends on its condition and age. Suppose your cast iron pipes are over 50 years old, experiencing frequent issues, or showing signs of significant deterioration (such as rust, leaks, or blockages). In that case, consider replacing them to avoid more extensive damage.

Fixing cast iron pipes without excavation can be done using trenchless repair methods. One common technique is pipelining, where a new pipe lining is inserted and cured inside the old pipe, creating a new pipe within the old one. This method is less disruptive and can extend the life of your plumbing system.

Coverage for cast iron pipes depends on your homeowner’s insurance policy and the nature of the damage. Generally, insurance may cover damages if they are sudden and accidental. However, wear and tear or neglect damage is typically not covered. It’s best to consult your insurance provider for specifics.

Under normal conditions, cast iron plumbing can last 75 to 100 years. However, this lifespan can be affected by factors such as the pipe’s quality, the water’s pH level, the presence of chemicals in the water, and how well the plumbing system has been maintained.

The cost to replace cast iron plumbing depends on various factors, including the size of your house, the accessibility of the pipes, and local labor rates. For more accurate estimates, getting quotes from several plumbing professionals in your area is advisable.
