Over time, the main sewer line leading to a home can begin to erode, causing cracks and breaks. These damages can cause blockages and backups that are very costly to repair. The only way to identify these potential problems is to examine the sewer line.
What can the Sewer Inspection tell me? A sewer inspection will show the condition of the main sewer line with a lighted video camera. The camera will allow us to see if any major issues exist — cracks, offsets in joints, pipe deflection, and sags in the line. What we commonly find are tree roots that have grown into the line through unsealed connections which need to be cleaned out annually to help prevent backups.
Before purchasing a house, a sewer inspection may expose defects not known by the sellers that could lead to a costly repair. By inspecting the main sewer line before you buy the home, you can consider the cost of the repair and negotiate with the seller, potentially saving you thousands of dollars. For standard sewer lines, repair costs may vary, depending on the circumstance.
