Does your property have sewer lines made from concrete or clay? Clay piping has been a presence for thousands of years and maintained its popularity for city plumbing and drainage through the early 1900s. Contemporary engineering methodologies now supply a dense, terra cotta clay creation that is regularly used throughout the US today, though the pipes are frequently surrounded by concrete for additional stability against impeding roots and shifting landscapes. All Valley Plumbing is happy to be a community leader for concrete or clay sewer lines installation, service, replacement & repair in Stanwood.
Sewer pipes made from clay and concrete are known for their longevity and toughness. They are ecologically responsible as they are formed from reprocessed clay, water and other natural components. Clay pipes do not corrode and can survive for centuries in ideal conditions.
Any type of plumbing has some disadvantages, and clay is no exception. Given their makeup, clay pipes are extremely heavy and awkward to move, unlike lightweight PVC. They can become brittle and develop leaks from water and crowded roots and can break under extreme pressure. For this reason, it is recommended to cover the clay pipe with concrete for more protection, although this does increase installation costs.
