Things like external corrosion (soil conditions)Soil often contains high levels of acidity, stray electric currents, and toxins, all of which can cause cast iron pipes to rust. Another, more common problem—internal corrosion—occurs within the pipes themselves, and is usually caused by the acidity of the actual sewage running through the pipes.
