Orangeburg Pipe Plague – What is Orangeburg Pipe?
If you reside in Southern New Jersey, you may be plagued by the Orangeburg Pipe Pandemic. No it’s not COVID-19, but it can cause havoc with your home. Orangeburg sewer pipe, often found in Gloucester County, Salem County, Camden County and Atlantic County New Jersey, is made of wood pulp fibers which are compressed with an adhesive. Liquified coal is used to coat the piping. Most Orangburg sewer pipe was developed between 1890’s and 1970. After 1970 sewer line pipes were replaced with PVC. Orangeburg pipe has a proven track record of failing around 10 years.
Why is Orangeburg Pipe a Failure?
When the fibers begin to break down, the pipe will slowly over time collapse. This makes prime opportunity for tree roots and other dirt and debris to make its way into the pipe. Amazingly, there is still an estimated 50 percent of customers in the New Jersey area that still have Orangeburg piping.
