Orangeburg Pipe Replacements

Replacing Orangeburg Pipes in Henrietta, NY

A Better Alternative to Sub-Par Piping

In the 1940s, a new plumbing invention was touted as the latest and greatest in piping technology. Orangeburg pipes, named for the town in New York where they were mass-produced, were installed by plumbers all over the United States and beyond as a cheaper, “corrosion-free” alternative to standard copper piping. However, by the 1970s, it was discovered that these pipes were not as reliable as they’d claimed to be.

Now, Orangeburg pipes are no longer considered a viable option by plumbers, and households all over Henrietta and the surrounding areas are learning just how damaging Orangeburg pipes can be to their home. Our team at Pride Plumbing of Rochester is here to help. We offer our Henrietta neighbors access to effective and affordable repiping services that replace Orangeburg pipes with proven-reliable alternatives, such as copper or plastic.

Call (585) 332-4550 or fill out our online contact form today to get the solutions you need for your Orangeburg piping problems. Our team will provide you with safer, more reliable piping fast, at an affordable price.

What Are Orangeburg Pipes?

Orangeburg pipes are made of wood pulp and sealed with layers of coal tar. While these pipes were pushed by plumbers for years as a cheap, long-lasting option for homeowners that was immune to the corrosion of metal pipes, the truth is that the materials they’re made of just aren’t up to the task. Their lightweight makes them extremely brittle, and homes with Orangeburg pipes are more vulnerable to leaks and burst pipes. Additionally, underground Orangeburg pipes can’t bear the weight of surrounding dirt – they have a tendency to flatten into oval shapes and become even more likely to break.

How to Find Out if Your Home Has Orangeburg Pipes

If your home was built between 1945 and 1972, there’s a very high chance that your home has Orangeburg pipes. Unless your home has been completely re-piped between 1980 and now, those pipes are likely still there, and they could start to cause problems at any time.

Spot the telltale issues associated with Orangeburg pipes:

  • Slow drains
  • Frequent clogs and toilet back-ups
  • The smell of sewage throughout your home
  • Mold
  • Strange green patches on your lawn
  • Dips or indentations in your lawn
  • Sinkholes in your foundation

    Great service at a reasonable price. Josh T was great, he was prompt and professional. After he assessed what I knew was a cracked disposal. He gave me many options so I could pick from different price points.
