Things No One Told You About Cast Iron Pipes
Cast iron pipes used to be a popular choice for plumbing systems due to their durability and longevity. However, as time passed by, red flags showed up, leading to costly repairs and inconveniences for homeowners. A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, your seasoned plumber in Temecula, CA, shares the things no one told you about cast iron pipes.
Susceptible to Rust
Cast iron pipes can eventually develop rust on the interior, leading to blockages, reduced flow capacity, and pipe failure. Trenchless pipe lining can address this issue by creating a new, corrosion-resistant pipe within the existing one, prolonging the system’s lifespan.
Cast iron pipes are more prone to accumulating debris, such as grease, sediment, and tree roots. Over time, these blockages can cause sewage to back up into your home, leading to water damage and health hazards. When this happens, seek professional plumbing services immediately.
Although cast iron pipes are expected to last up to 50 years, they can fail sooner than expected due to corrosion. When your pipes are past their prime, get in touch with our plumbing company immediately for a replacement.
Cast iron pipes are much heavier than other materials used for plumbing, making them more challenging to install and maintain. Contractors need to use special equipment to handle them effectively.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
