The Problem with Older Cast Iron Pipes

Some Michigan homes are experiencing a wave of cast iron sewer pipe problems due to the 25-35 Year life span of cast iron pipes. If your cast iron sewer pipes are 25 Years old or older, they could fail at any time. Your drainage lines may already be damaged by tree root intrusion, cracks, channelling, or misaligned connections before you experience complete sewer line failure.

If your sewer pipes collapse from age or damage, there is just no remedy other than to dig it up and replace them.
