    Question Cast iron septic lines starting to collapse -

    My 83 year old mother's home was built in 1962, and the cast iron pipes that run under the house and to the septic are collapsing at a "y" joint. The floors are tarazzo tile, and the only answer we have been given is to blow up the tile and repair it. My mother is about to pass out! Any ideas, please?

    You already have the bad news, so here's some good news:

    Once you repair her main line (or replace it), you won't have any more sewer troubles, at least at that spot.

    There is one thing you could do have the line camera'd by someone who does Trenchless pipe re-lining and see if it hasn't collapsed too much there is a possibility they can re-line it depending on the severity of the pipe it sounds slim but could save the floor.
