Cast Iron pipes-How long do they last & what can destroy them????
A cast iron sewage pipe under my property needs replacement because there is a break in the line. I was wondering how long do these iron pipes last? The building is about 30 years old and so are the pipes.
In terms of normal wear and tear, what can damage iron pipes? Things that run through that line is anything of regular usages from the toilet, and the kitchen. Will things from the toilet eventually ruin the pipes? How bout washing dishes from the kitchen? The grease? oil?
And I know it may be hard to say, but how much would the work cost? I was told its about 10 feet underground, and digging will be needed.
Any help will be appreciated, thank you!
