Drainage pipes are usually made of 3 different tpyes of material
- ABS – Black plastic pipe
- PVC – White plastic pipe
- Cast Iron – Old metal black looking pipe
ABS & PVC hold up the longest, and as you can imagine cast iron does not. Cast iron is tends to rust out. Luckily most homes in San Diego have newer plastic pipe that lasts longer. However, that pipe can still leak.
9 times out of 10 it is because of improper installation. When builders build a home, their goal is to get it up as fast as possible. This means that corners are usually cut and the quality of work is not that good.
Here at Colepepper Plumbing, we have written warranty’s, so you can feel comfortable knowing that you will be getting quality work.
How to Tell if You Need Drain Repair
If you have one of the few houses in the San Diego area with a crawl space, check your pipes to see if there are any noticeable leaks underneath you home. You may be surprised to find a leak that has been there for years.
Leaks behind walls may not become apparent for several months or even years. Often the first signs are dampness or black mold near the base of the wall. If you notice either of these things, it is likely that a leaky drain line is to blame.
Every few months, glance in the cabinets below your kitchen and bathroom sinks to see if there are any leaks. San Diego is home to thousands of old homes with older drain lines and sewer lines that are prone to leaks. Being proactive and checking for leaks regularly is the best way to avoid costly damage.
