What Is A Sewer Line Inspection?
A sewer inspection is a chance for industry experts to evaluate your sewer line and determine if it is operating properly, needs repairs or is deteriorating in any way. We look for structural flaws, blockages and more detailed performance indicators to make sure we can give a confident seal of approval to your system. Even more importantly, we get the chance to identify any repairs we see that need to be completed before they cause a disaster.
Avoid Common Sewer Repairs
Preventative maintenance like sewer line inspection prevents messy problems from occurring to your sewer line. Here are some of the most common repairs we complete on sewer lines that could be prevented on your sewer line:
- Blocked pipes
- Broken or cracked pipes
- Sunken (bellied) pipes
- Pipe corrosion
Unlike a normal water line repair, sewer repairs are usually identified once the yard and home have already been affected by unsanitary materials. An inspection can locate these looming problems and even repair them before they cost you so much stress and money! All you have to do is stay on top of your inspections and be aware of any abnormalities you can see.
Determining Financial Responsibility
The city is not responsible for all of your sewer lines. If the sewer pipe does burst or leak, you may be responsible for the repairs to both the line and any damage to your home! If you don’t know where the city’s pipe stops and yours begins, an inspector will let you know. Plus, having your lines inspected can determine where the problem is located in your pipes. Without an inspection, you’re at the mercy of the city and your best guess.
Sewer Line Lifespan
If your home was built several decades ago, you need to know the status of your sewer line’s health. While modern sewer lines can be expected to last 100 years, older clay pipes may only last 50-60 years. If you own or are buying an older home, you need to know as much as you can about your sewer lines. If they are deteriorating, you need to start planning for the expense of sewer line replacement. It’s better to know as far ahead as possible when considering an investment that big!
