 safest cast iron sewer pipe clean out
Author: rirojo (FL)

Plumber says I need hydro jet clean out of 40+ year old cast iron sewer drain pipes for my home. Will the water pressure blow out weak areas that may be currently held together with 40+ years of build-up? What method is the safest for these old pipes? Thanks

Ask if they will repair any damage that is done in the process.

They will not damage anything that is not already broken.
