  6. I work on a lot of older homes in so cal and the main problem is definitely cast iron weather it's drain or water lines, the biggest problem we find here is the rust plugging the pipes and eventually losing most of your water pressure, often when a house is sold it stays vacant and the water is shut off and also no longer flowing thru the drains in both cases it's a recipe for disaster, the pressure in the pipes is holding the rust on the edges once shut off all that rust can collapse and plug the pipe, with the drains it's a different situation but same results ruins the pipes.

  7. Strange question, was your guy using a rasp to clean the edge of the PVC waste pipe? Can I just use a piece of abrasive mesh? I've done it in my own house and no problems but who knows, I could be making a mistake. (I don't do repairs for others, just my own stuff.)

  8. I can't be the only one wondering how the heck all that gets dug out. Is it really as manual as I imagine all by hand, a crew of guys taking turns with a shovel? How is the dirt extracted? How does it get backfilled? Are their special tools to dig out or back fill?

  11. Hey Roger you wouldn’t have to tunnel underneath a slab house if you invested in pipe coating equipment. Then you can line the inside of the cast iron around bends all the way down to 1 1/2” drain lines . After that you can deal with the rest of the sewer outside. Dig outside not underneath the house. You can pipe coat through combos and use the bicote to cut out your tye in’s . 👍

  12. So, what have you done with the remains of cast iron going up through concrete? I've watched a number of your videos by now and you seem to routinely skim over interesting details… Maybe they are in some other video who knows, but this makes me feel I'm wasting some of time. I'm thankful for learning about problems, but, once I know about them, I want to see the fix, otherwise what's the point of watching more?

  13. Is there anything stronger than these flimsy-looking PVC pipes that you say can crack if not supported properly?

  14. Seriously could save tens of thousands of dollars on wife’s choice home to buy. Amazing. Thank you!
