A Word of Caution About Pipes in Older Homes

A Word of Caution About Pipes in Older Homes


Here in the Austin area, we tend to see a lot of older homes with failing cast iron piping. This typically happens in homes that were built before 1970.I brought a sample from a home built in the 50s to show you today, which you can see in the video above. As you can see, the piping is old, brittle, and rusting.

A lot of people are purchasing homes here in the Austin area with piping like this and wondering whether their pipes are good as-is. In our experience, PVC piping is more corrosion-resistant and durable and should be the standard for any home, regardless of when it was built.

"A lot of people are purchasing homes with these kind of pipes."

If you are in the Austin area looking for a home that was built before 1970, make sure you check those pipes before you finalize your purchase. If you have any questions in the meantime or need any help, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
