As we celebrate the holiday season with family and friends, the last thing you want is plumbing issues from failing cast iron pipes. This time of year puts extra stress on your pipes, leading to slow drains, shower/ toilet back ups, water damage and foul odors. All of these are common issues for corroded and rusted cast iron pipes, but having them replaced can be very expensive and inconvenient.
The Leak Doctor has a Better Solution
The latest technology allows us to gently clean out all the rust and corrosion out of your cast iron pipes and apply an epoxy coating, leaving them as good as new. We can do this outside your home so you don’t have the mess or high cost of having your floors dug up. The best part, it’s just a fraction of the cost of replacing your cast iron pipes.
