Issues That a Cast Iron Pipe Lining Can Address

cast iron pipe

Sewer pipes work day in and out to manage the disposal of wastewater from any establishment into the main sewer system. And when it comes to sewer systems, cast iron pipes used to be the gold standard due to features such as durability, fire-resistance, and ability to withstand high pressures. However, they are still susceptible to damage over time. Luckily, these can be fixed when you call Nu Flow AK for top-notch trenchless pipe lining in Bellevue, WA.

Cast iron pipe lining, the pipe rehabilitation method that we specifically use for cast iron pipes, can efficiently address the following issues.


One of the most common issues that plague cast iron pipes, which CIPP lining thankfully can fix, is corrosion. Corrosion happens when metals are exposed to water and oxygen, elements that cause rust. And in the case of cast iron pipes, corrosion is accelerated due to the constant exposure to wastewater. In addition, there might be chemicals present that further expedite the process of corrosion.

Corrosion can weaken pipes making them leak or collapse. Therefore, epoxy pipe lining is ideal since it is an easier, more convenient way of pipe restoration.

Tree Root Intrusion

Tree root intrusion is a serious problem for property owners. The roots of trees and shrubs can penetrate your sewer lines and cause severe damage, such as sewer backups. CIPP lining is great for addressing tree root intrusion because the process creates an impenetrable barrier between the pipes and roots below ground level.

Holes and Cracks

Cracked sewer pipes are a huge pain to deal with, especially when they result in leaks. Not only will you have to pay for repairs, you’ll also have to deal with the mess that comes with it. In some cases, the leak can be so severe that you’ll need to replace the entire pipe entirely. This can be an expensive endeavor.

The good news is that there are other ways of fixing your pipes without having to replace them entirely. One of these solutions is cast iron pipe lining. So if you manage or own an establishment with cast iron pipes, keep in mind that pipe lining companies like Nu Flow AK offer a better solution.
