Flushable Wipes Cause Sewer Backup

Camera Inspection of No Corrode Pipe in Edmonton Shows Collapse Restricting Sewer Flow

This inspection photo was collected with our camera pipe inspection equipment last week in an Edmonton home sewer system.

Over time this pipe has collapsed and has now reached the point where it’s oval shape is causing toilet paper to back up the sewer line.

The cost of replacing the sewer line between your house and the city line typically begins at around $8,000-$10,000.

A preventative camera inspection from CSL Sewercleaner will give you an idea if this is a cost you can anticipate in the near future or determine if a current backup in your sewer is a result of a no corrode pipe failure or a different type of clog.

The Problem With No Corrode Pipes

No corrode pipe was originally designed to withstand 50 years of use but started resulting in widespread failures after only 30 years.

Orangeburg was a brand name that manufactured no corrode pipe which was widely installed in Canadian home sewers from 1945-1980. It’s often referred to as ‘Orangeburg’ pipe and sometimes ‘Black Pipe’.

What you need to know about Orangeburg pipe is they began failing sometime in the 1990’s due to the materials that was used to construct the pipe.

This is the part that you may have trouble believing. These pipes are essentially made from cardboard… no, we aren’t kidding.

When World War II ended, the demand for cost effective construction materials was very high and companies looked to innovate.

No corrode pipe was one of those innovations and considering these pipes were built from a combination of wood pulp, coal and tar paper they have done amazingly well to last as long as they have.

You might think that the City would have your back in the case of a sewer line failure but the homeowner is responsible for the sewer line between the home and the main city line.

At CSL Sewercleaner we make use of camera equipment to inspect for no corrode pipe, both for preventative inspection measures as well as back up and repair situations.

If your home was built between 1945-1980 give us a call to talk about an inspection of your sewer plumbing before you run into problems.
