If your Orlando area home was built before 1975, it most likely has cast iron pipes and sewer lines. Plumbing technology in newer homes uses PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and PE (polyethylene) materials, due to their longer lifespan, reliability, and ability to withstand corrosion and movement in the earth.
Unfortunately, older cast iron pipes become susceptible to rust and corrosion, have limited resistance to earth movement, such as any pressure from tree roots. Neglecting to have your cast iron pipes inspected on a regular basis can lead to serious problems.
Signs of failing cast iron pipes include leaks, water backups, slow drains, mold, insect or rodent infestation, or foul odor. The high humidity and moisture here in Central Florida accelerates the process.
