Cast Iron Pipes in Miami

Cast Iron Pipes

Cast iron pipes were commonly used in plumbing systems for many years due to their durability and strength. However, over time, these pipes can become corroded and develop leaks which can cause serious issues for property owners.

One of the main problems with cast iron pipes is that they get rusting from the inside out. Causing this more problems because when home and business owners notice it, it is to late already. 

The wight is another of the issues found in cast iron pipes. They are extremely heavy compared to other types of piping materials like PVC pipes. This makes them difficult to install and repair, as well as more expensive due to labor costs associated with handling such heavy material.

The Lifespan of cast iron pipes goes between 50-100 years. Where the horizontal pipes are the one that get more damaged because of the water fluid constantly moving at the bottom line of the pipe.

But, off course, not everything is bad with cast iron pipes. For example cast irons pipes are called the silence pipes in plumbing, and today they are the prefered pipes used in Hotels and Building drainage pipes.

Pipe Lining (we do not recommend it)

Pipe lining is a trenchless method of repairing pipes that have suffered damage, corrosion or deterioration. This technique involves coating the inside of the existing pipe with an epoxy resin material, creating a new pipe within the old one.

Even when the method has some benefits, there so many problems with quality and durability that we at Miami 305 Plumbing and partners stopped recomending the method.

Rusted Cast Iron Pipe

Example of it in the following short video.

When cast iron pipes gets rusted you will see many issues in your line. As it get rusted first thing will happens is that anything you through in your sewer line will get stuck in the wall of your cast iron sewer pipe causing common clogs. 

Also the rusted cast iron pipes mainly at the horizontal area will colaps with the time, if you pass a sewer camera in a pipe in this kind of situation you will see a collapsed pipe at the bottom, some times with an horizontal line through an important part of the horizontal pipe. Sometimes you will see even a hole that does not allow the camera continue.

There are old areas in Miami-Dade County where we see this kind of situation frequently. Cities like Kendall, Pinecrest, Coral Gables, Palmetto Bay and Coconut Grove, still have a lot of cast iron. And the most controversial thing is that houses around the mentioned cities are realy expensive and in most cases it is not possible tunneling to replace the cast iron pipes, because that part of Miami-Dade County stand over Coral. Also Miami Shores and Miami Beach and North Miami Beach have the same situation but in that area tunneling is possible in most of the cases which is an advantage because the structure of the house does not needs to be touched.


 

Trenchless Cast iron replacement in Miami

Everything you need to know about Trenchless Cast Iron Replacement or also known as tunneling in Miami

Are you having a need to replace your old sewer lines without excavating them? Then you should go for the trenchless cast iron replacement method. It involves creating a small access point to the damaged pipe and pulling a new pipe through it. The new is resistant to root intrusions and corrosion.

The only problem with tunneling is that not every house base will allow us to do a tunneling and in case we can do it, the cost will be so high that probably break the floor and remodel it after will turn to be a better solution.

Cities where the base/ground does not much while tunneling: Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Homestead, Cutler Bay, Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay.

The cost can vary depending on several factors such as the length and diameter of the pipes, access to the pipe location, and whether it requires trench digging or not. It's best to get an estimate from a plumber near you.

Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages. Cast iron replacement involves completely removing old pipes and replacing them with new ones while pipe lining involves inserting a liner inside the existing pipe to seal cracks and leaks.

Yes! Replacing old pipelines made out of metals like cast iron with plastic ones like PVC has become much more popular over the years because PVC is cheaper, easier to install and maintain.

  • Durability: PVC has better durability than cast iron.
  • Weight: PVC is easier to install thanks to its very light weigh. 
  • Corrosion: PVC is many times more resistant to corrosion than cast iron which is the main reason it is been used in Miami-Dade county which is very close to the sea.
