Have you heard of the Orangeburg pipe? Coined after the town Orangeburg in New York, these pipes were popular from the 1860s to the 1970s until they were eventually replaced with the PVC pipe. The Orangeburg pipe was made of layers of fibers from pitch and wood pulp, and while they were intended to last for decades, it was discovered that they were unable to handle excessive pressure effectively. Because these pipe materials failed to perform as expected, they were decommissioned from continued installations. Now uncommon in today’s contemporary homes or buildings, older homes and offices may be affected by these pipeline materials if they haven’t been replaced.

Why should this concern you? Well, it is possible that these pipes had been installed in your area decades ago and may now be completely deteriorated and need of immediate replacement.
