Simply put, if your home has a cast iron plumbing system then you’ve probably experienced plumbing issues such as backup & overflows from your drain lines, rodent infestation, bad smells & loss of use of your toilets, showers or kitchen drains.
A lot of homes in the state of Florida that were built before 1975 have a cast iron plumbing system installed. This is due to the plumbing material that builders were using to construct homes before switching over to the modern-day PVC plumbing system.
