Does your property utilize sewer lines created from concrete or clay? Clay pipes have been present for eons and maintained their status for plumbing and drainage throughout the world during the early 1900s. Contemporary engineering techniques have since developed a heavy, terra cotta clay design that is routinely used across the United States today, though the pipes are commonly surrounded by concrete for increased stability against invasive roots and unstable landscapes. All Valley Plumbing is an area leader for supplying concrete or clay sewer lines installation, service, replacement & repair in Lynnwood.
Sewer pipes created from clay and concrete are acknowledged for their durability and toughness. They are environmentally responsible as they are made from water, reprocessed clay and other natural ingredients. Clay pipes never rust and can endure for centuries in optimal conditions.
All types of plumbing have some weaknesses, and clay is not an exception. Given their construction, clay pipes are extremely weighty and difficult to move, unlike PVC, that is lightweight and easy to operate. With advanced age, they can become fragile and develop weak areas that allow water to escape. Roots can invade pipes and they can also crack when exposed to extreme pressure. For additional fortification, clay pipes are usually enclosed with concrete, although this increases costs for installation and repair.
