A neighbor recently replaced their Orangeburg pipe after suffering from a relatively minor Orangeburg pipe backup. Pat Priest and the Boscherts decided to explore replacement of our pipes before such an opportunity announced itself.
I was hesitant to spend the money to replace our Orangeburg pipe, but a quick search about building material lifetimes convinced me to join the prevention replacement effort. If properly installed, cast iron lasts from 75-100 years, PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipe (the replacement material) lasts 400+ years, and Orangeburg pipe has a designed lifetime of 50 years. That’s right, the Orangeburg pipe still in use in Kings Park is at or past its designed lifetime.
