Cast iron pipe has been used in sewer lines for many years. Although it is long lasting – it can have a lifespan of 30-50 years – the pipes will rust and erode over time due to contact with moisture. The corrosion and erosion weaken the pipes causing to it deteriorate. Plumbers that provide the best plumbing services tend to look more closely at the sources of erosion in a copper pipe.
Pipes rust as they come into contact with wastewater. This will reduce the flow going through the sewer line as the interior diameter constricts. The rough surface the rust creates will further slow the rate of water flow.
Corrosion is also caused by pipes coming into contact with wastewater. The wastewater will etch a channel into the pipe that will weaken the structure and foreign material may enter the line. Wastewater can also escape the pipe causing erosion and bellies in the line which may result in the pipe collapsing and creating severe damage.

There are multiple possible solutions for getting your pipes functioning again. The first of these is hydro jetting which is a process of cleaning the inside of the pipe with high powered water to remove grease buildup and tree roots.
Pipelining is a process where a new plastic pipe is created within the old pipe. The new pipe can replace the line or serve as spot repairs without the expense and damage incurred with trenching. The new pipe is a high-grade epoxy so weak joints are eliminated which can result in a permanent solution.
