Are your sewer lines clay or concrete? Clay piping was invented eons ago and enjoyed continued acceptance for community drainage and plumbing systems through the early years of the 20th century. Manufacturing techniques today generate a solid, terra cotta clay line that is routinely used around the country. The pipes are most often covered in concrete for improved stability against intrusion of roots and soil that is subject to movement. The All Valley Plumbing team is proud to supply effective and affordable concrete or clay sewer lines installation, service, replacement & repair in Everett.
For a stable and long-lasting product, clay and concrete sewer lines function well. As they are created from organic elements, water and repurposed clay, these pipes are great for the environment. In addition, clay lines will not corrode and can work for centuries under optimum circumstances.
All piping systems have some disadvantages. While PVC is lightweight, clay is very hefty and challenging to move. Clay pipes are also more apt to develop leaks and experience damage from roots than iron pipes and clay will give way when under extreme pressure. Surrounding the clay in concrete aids in pipe protection and makes it more durable but repair and installation costs are higher.
