  • 60 year old cast iron.

    I recommended a repipe. Showed the customer the pics and it didn't take much coercion. Might have to start using the camera more often.

      I'm not a plumber, but shouldn't piping (especially ferrous) be *off* the ground? Seems like direct contact is just asking for trouble!

          The first pictures made it look like something had died down there. I am currently working on a job where the home owner decided to get rid of his leaking C.I. pipe, and while he was at it, fix the foundation and dig the dirt down another 3 feet.... There are some days I would pay money for the ability to say no to some of these jobs...
          We don't have preventative maintenance around here, we have CRISIS MANAGEMENT!

            I'm so glad we don't have too many crawl spaces to work in, around here. Cast is still used underground around these parts also. If your in the county, you can run PVC though.
