Lake Magdalene exploded in growth beginning in the 1960s before holding a stable population count starting around the year 2000. The sewer pipes installed for new homes being constructed during this time were mostly made of either cast iron or clay pipe.

Lake Magdalene Plumbing – Sewer & Drain Lines
Cast Iron Pipes
With the age of many of the homes in Lake Magdalene there is a good chance they have cast iron sewers. Over time, cast Iron sewers corrode due to the constant presence of water on the inside of the pipe that causes it to rust. The soil that the cast iron pipe is bedded in may acidic to some degree, which corrodes the pipe over time. Waste water running through the sewer pipe and the sewer gases are acidic which cause inside of the pipe to pit and become worn, creating weak points and places for material to build up and cause persistent drain clogs. If your homes sewer and drain pipes have gotten to this point, the best option is a sewer replacement to remove and replace all the degraded pipe with high quality Schedule 40 (SCH 40) PVC pipes and fittings.
Clay sewers were still being used somewhat when houses were being constructed in Lake Magdalene. Although they have a long service life, they are slightly porous and invite the intrusion of roots. Roots can crush the pipe, allowing dirt and other material the enter the pipe, creating a blockage. Roots can also intrude the pipe through fittings and begin to form a blockage due to the constant water and nutrients from waste running through the pipe. If you are experiencing frequent drain clogs or main line stoppages and you suspect you have clay sewer lines, the best course of action is to have a licensed plumber diagnose your sewer. They can use a sewer camera to visually inspect your pipes, pinpoint the problems and provide repair or replacement options.

Lake Magdalene Plumbing – Water Supply Lines
Copper pipe is a tried and true way of providing potable water to homes and business. Many of the homes in Lake Magdalene were plumbed with copper pipe many years ago. By now copper pipes may be suffering from issues seen in aged copper pipe. Over time, copper pipes form pinhole leaks from mineral build up on the inside of the pipe, and chemical reactions with the soil and concrete slab. Repairs to individual leaks can be made, but once pin hole leaks begin to form in one place they will generally continue and incur costly repairs over time. The best course of action at this point is to replace the water lines through a process called a water re-pipe.
Galvanized Steel Pipe
If copper wasn’t used to provide water to a home or business, the other main option was galvanized steel pipe. Lake Magdalene homes were plumbed many years ago, and if one were to still have galvanized pipe for its water lines, they are most likely very rusted and possibly leaking. Galvanized steel pipe rusts from the inside out from the constant presence of water and buildup of calcium and other mineral deposits. These deposits can break off of the pipe during sudden pressure changes, taking a part of the pipe with it and creating a leak that runs up your water bill and damage your property. Again, individual repairs can be made but whole house re-pipe by a licensed professional is best.
