Why Should I Get a Sewer Line Inspection?

Your home's sewer line is an essential part of the plumbing system, responsible for carrying waste and wastewater away from your property. However, sewer line issues can be costly and disruptive if not detected early. That's why getting a sewer line inspection is crucial for homeowners.

Sewer issues can affect homes of any age. Although uncommon, even newly built homes may experience problems with their main building drain. The likelihood of encountering problems rises with the age of the property. If you're purchasing a new home, a sewer scan may not be necessary. However, if you're considering a home that is a century old, it is advisable to have a sewer scan conducted. There isn't a definitive rule on which homes require a sewer scan, as the decision depends on the buyer's risk tolerance.

Below is a video using our sewer line camera, on a newly built home. In this case the builders tapped into the old sewer system. At some point the old sewer line system collapsed.

It is crucial to conduct sewer inspections as any issues with the main sewer line fall under the owner's financial responsibility. In case routine sewer cleaning fails to address problems with the sewer line, the repairs can be costly.

Here are the top reasons why you should consider getting a sewer line inspection:

1. Early Detection of Problems

A sewer line inspection allows our experienced professionals to identify any potential issues, such as tree root intrusion, pipe cracks, blockages, or misaligned pipes. By catching these problems early on, you can avoid major repairs or replacements down the line.

2. Prevent Costly Damage

Sewer line problems can lead to extensive damage to your property, including foundation damage, water leaks, and even sewage backups. By investing in a sewer line inspection, you can prevent these costly damages and save yourself from future headaches.

3. Assess Existing Issues

If you suspect there may be a problem with your sewer line, a professional inspection can accurately assess the situation. Our team will provide you with a detailed report on the condition of your sewer line and recommend the appropriate actions to resolve any issues.

4. Peace of Mind

Knowing that your sewer line is in good condition brings peace of mind. Whether you're buying a new home or have been living in your current property for years, a sewer line inspection can provide you with confidence in the overall functionality and safety of your plumbing system.
