What are the dangers of Hydro jetting aging cast iron pipes?

Hydro jetting aging cast-iron pipes can pose several hazards, such as:

  1. Pipe damage: The intense water pressure used in hydro jetting may exceed the capacity of aging cast-iron pipes, leading to fractures, ruptures, or other structural harm.
  1. Corrosion: Pre-existing corrosion or weakening in aging cast-iron pipes can be exacerbated by the force of hydro jetting, potentially causing leaks or pipe failures.
  1. Backflow: Blockages or obstructions in the pipes can be pushed back into the property during hydro jetting, creating a messy and unhygienic situation.
  1. Plumbing system disruption: Debris and sediment dislodged by hydro jetting can result in clogs in other areas of the plumbing system.
  1. Financial impact: Any damage incurred during hydro jetting may necessitate expensive repairs or pipe replacements.
