Offer: FREE Plumbing Inspection for Austin-Area Realtors!

The Plumbinator Round Rock is offering a FREE service to any realtor representing a buyer of an Austin-area house built 1950-1986. 

A house of that age usually has deteriorating cast iron sewer pipes, since this material only lasts 50 years.  Read more about that on our other post.

We will camera the cast iron sewer lines in a house of this age for any Austin-area buyer's agent for FREE ($250 value) to see if they need to be replaced. This adds value to your service to the buyer. We just ask that we are allowed to discuss the results of the inspection with the buyers themselves. 

Call 512-786-1771 for an appointment or read more at the link. 

Please also forward to any Austin area realtors you know! Cast iron pipe inspections for houses built 1950-1986 are free to all buyer's agents.

Was Your Austin-Area House Built 1950-1986? Then Your Sewer Pipes May Be In Big Trouble.

If you have an older home in Austin, you may have a ticking time bomb under your slab in the form of cast iron sewer pipe.  All cast iron sewer pipe will need to be completely replaced before your house turns 50 years old. If your house was built 1950-1969, it's already time to replace before your house is flooded with sewage! Houses built in the 1970s will need complete replacement in the next 10 years. It's not a question of IF, it's a question of WHEN. Why? Cast iron sewer pipes only last 50 years before they deteriorate beyond repair and start leaking raw sewage into your yard or living room. If you have an older house in Austin, call us to come out and do an inspection. We'll let you know if you can wait a few years, or if the pipes are already starting to leak sewage into your yard or house.
Why completely replace, not just repair the pipe as neededEach repair causes the cast iron on either side of the break to turn into TWO new leaks later, as the weakened meta…

Read more below.
Question 1: Should I Try to Fix My Own Plumbing?It depends. If the project involves natural or LP gas, NO you should not. Working with gas and gas piping can be very dangerous and anyone who works on gas must be licensed. As far as non-gas related plumbing, whether you should attempt a fix depends on how large and/or complicated the project is. In Texas, homeowners can legally do certain types of things to their plumbing without a permit, like replacing a toilet or changing out a fau…
