Dean Sharp Joins Us To Discuss Your Chronically Constipated House

What do you do when your house becomes incontinent or chronically constipated?

What are you dealing with?

Leaks, low water flow or rusty water?

Chronic sewer clogging or main line blowout?

It really comes down to two main problems:

Water lines - breaks, interior build-up and/or corrosion, pitting from acidic water or soil

Sewer lines - corrosion, breaks, ground shifting, root intrusion

To avoid some of these problems, know your sewer lines lifespans:

Clay - 2 - 35 years

Cast Iron - 25 to 35 years

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) - 100 years +

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene-styrene) - 100 years +

And your water supply lines lifespans:

Galvanized steel - 40 years max

Copper - 50 + years above ground, 20 years or less below ground

PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) - 50 + years

So, how do you fix it?
