Discolouration can also cause brown stains on your sink. Discoloured water is the most visible sign that you urgently need to replace or reline your cast iron pipes.
• Leaks – Leaks are also visible signs of damaged cast iron pipes. If the leaks happen in multiple areas in your home and continuously persist even after repeated cleaning, you need to make urgent contact with the expert.
• Slow Drain – When you experience slow flow or backing up, there’s a big possibility that your cast iron pipe has totally failed. Cleaning it with a chemical remover is a no-no because chemicals contain sulphuric acid that will create more damage to the pipe.
