Orangeburg pipe
Posted by Jerry on December 01, 1999 at 16:16:47:
Our main sewer drain has backed up twice in the last 2 or 3 years -- most recently this morning -- and a few more times some years ago. The plumber who snaked it out said we might have Orangeburg pipe in the system and, if we do, it's "inevitable" that it will have to be replaced.

Our house was built in the 1930s. I found a source on the Net that says Orangeburg pipe was manufactured during the Korean War. If that's true, we can't have Orangeburg pipe. Do you know if that source is right?

We appreciate your help. Thank you.
