Orlando Cast Iron Pipes & Insurance Claims

If your Central Florida area home has cast iron pipes, it can be a disaster just waiting to happen. 

Those homes built before 1975 can have cast iron plumbing pipes. While a standard at that time, we now know they succumb to rust and corrosion on the inside of the pipe. Which often leads to failing pipes, leaks and water damage. Which can end up costing the homeowner thousands of dollars in repairs. 

Unfortunately, there are typically very few warning signs cast iron pipes are failing. Rust build up and other corrosion can cause several issues:

Slow drains or back-ups

Mold growth

Cracks in your foundation 

Higher than normal water bill

The sound of water running when all appliances are turned off

Abnormal lawn growth or water puddles 

If you have cast iron pipes, you should have them checked for any leaks or damage. It isn’t a matter of “if” they will start leaking, but “when”.

Why use the professionals at the Leak Doctor?

Traditional methods of inspecting cast iron pipes mean an inspection of visual pipes, but what about those you can’t see. Let’s face it, there are more pipes you can’t see than those you can. That’s where the Leak Doctor’s research and technology comes into play. 

Our state of the art thermography can identify structural leaks and tiny temperature differences to find the origin of structural leaks. 

Our video inspection equipment allows us to see inside your plumbing system to detect unexplained blockages and cracks. 

Our technicians are trained to utilize the most advanced digital ultrasonic inspection system. Even the tiniest leak makes a traceable noise.

This allows us to locate a leak without breaking into walls or floors or digging up your lawn. We also permanently repair cast iron pipes without the high cost (or mess) of digging them up and replacing them. 

Water leaks can start as just a trickle, but progress quickly, the easiest and most cost-effective way of solving the problem is to call a professional Leak Detector.

The team arrives in our familiar Leak Doctor trucks, we know the four Leak Doctor laws: Detect the leak, Pin-point the leak, Bring in the leak repair team, Leave the scene like we found it, with everything neatly cleaned up and placed in order.
