How do I Know if I Have Cast Iron Pipes?
Some plumbers and leak detection companies can put a camera through the drain pipe on one of the stacks on your roof and if they tell you if you have cast iron pipes and what condition they are in. They can also examine pipe coming into your home and drain pipe leaving to look for cast iron and determine if there is deterioration. It’s an easy process that is not disruptive or expensive. If you need repairs or mitigate efforts such as a lining that can be injected, you can explore filing an insurance claim. If you have questions, check with your insurance agent or a property claims attorney.
