Old Under Slab Cast Iron Pipes
 
This is the 4th time in two years of ownership that my underslab cast iron pipes are backing up. We don't put anything other than TP in the drains we they still get backed up.

Along with snaking the drains, would anyone recommend having a video inspection done and relining the pipes or possibly replacing the pipes with PVC?

I bet it's roots.

Not roots, but tampons. Lovely wife cost me $185. But I did get a video inspection which revealed no roots, thank God.

However, the interior of the pipes are bumpy and causing things to hang up inside. Besides that a couple sections of pipe are holding water. The plumber said that was not good and probably due to settling.

Yeah they can be nasty. If you have low spots collecting water etc. I would start a little savings account and put a few bucks in from each paycheck. Someday that pipe will need to be replaced.
