More about plumbing pipes
Galvanized pipe has to be one of the worst materials ever used in plumbing. This pipe is famous for its ability to rust and to catch every imaginable thing that goes down it. Grease and hair are especially common stoppages found in galvanized drains. As galvanized pipes age, they begin to develop buildups that slowly restrict their openings. Eventually, the buildup blocks the pipe completely. Snaking the drain will punch holes in the obstructions, but the stoppage will recur in a matter of weeks or months. Old galvanized drains are also known to rust out at their threads, causing leaks at their joints. The best solution to galvanized drain problems is the replacement of the old piping with more modern plumbing materials. Rubber couplings make it easy to adapt new drainage materials to the old piping.
Cast-iron pipe has been used for DVVV systems for longer than I've been a plumber and then some. Typically, cast iron gives good, dependable, long-term service. Whether the system is plumbed with service weight pipe or no-hub pipe, the cast iron lasts a long time.
There are some drawbacks to cast-iron drains, however. The interior of cast-iron pipe can be rough, especially as it starts to rust. These rough surfaces catch a lot of debris as it is being drained down the pipes. This leads to stoppages, but they are not as bad as the ones found in galvanized pipes, and they don't recur as quickly. One of the biggest problems with cast-iron drainage systems is the removal of cleanout plugs. The old brass plugs that have been in the cleanouts for years can be next to impossible to remove. I've had occasions when a 24-inch pipe wrench with a 2-foot cheater bar wouldn't turn the cleanout plug. If you've done much work with pipe wrenches and cheater bars, you know the kind of leverage that is being applied under these conditions. Even so, some cleanout plugs just won't budge, and some of them are in locations where you just can't get enough leverage on them to make the turn secrets so soon, but I will give you a few hints of what we will be looking for.
Have you ever had a problem with copper tubing that developed pinhole leaks for no apparent reason? When was the last time a customer asked you to solve the problem of banging water pipes? Has water pressure ever been a complaint you have had to deal with? Do you know what to do when a house has frequent problems with faucets that leak?
