In response to Re: Leak in Sewer Pipe
: : I just recently developed a leak at a point in my sewer line where it connects from my kitchen/dishwasher drain. The leak is at the seal of the connection between the connector/reducer and sewer pipe itself not where the kitchen/dishwasher waste drain is tied in. It seems like a simple problem that will eventually develop into a big problem. Am I looking at replacing a section of the sewr pipe or can I repair the seal?

: Reply:
: How simple the repair is depends on the type of piping material. What kind of "seal" do you have that is leaking? Most likely a section of piping needs to be replaced.

Thanks for the response.
The sewer pipe is made from Cast Iron it appears and the seal looks like a weld or soilder.
