Beneath the Surface: 3 Reasons to Have a Sewer Line Inspection

A sensible homeowner cannot be governed by the principle of “out of sight, out of mind.” Unfortunately, many of the things that can go wrong with your home and property are out of sight until they become a costly problem. A sewer scope inspection may not be at the top of your mind, but you never want to take for granted that everything is working as it should be. Evolve Property Inspections offers sewer line inspections, and we’ll explore three reasons you may want to schedule one.

Sewer Line Inspections

1. You Want Peace of Mind before the Purchase

If you are planning to purchase a new home, you can grant yourself the ultimate peace of mind with a sewer line inspection. At a general home inspection, the inspector cannot see into the sewer to check for any issues such as root intrusion, drain line blockages, or broken or cracked pipes. If there are any existing or potential problems with your sewer line, they can only be detected by a camera inserted into the main drain line.

2. You Suspect There May Be a Problem

Perhaps the most compelling reason of all is that you definitely want to schedule an inspection if you suspect that you may have a problem with your sewer line. If you notice any foul sewage odors, slow drains, clogs or backups in multiple drains, or patches of lush grass in your yard, you need a sewer camera inspection to identify the cause of your problem. The earlier you catch an issue, the better off you will be.

3. You Want to Stay on Top of Maintenance

You don’t need to wait until you have a problem to schedule a sewer line inspection. Preventive maintenance is the best way to protect your property and your sewer line from costly issues by catching them early on. Your sewer line can be impacted by tree roots, age, ground shifting, and other environmental conditions. Repairing or replacing buried drain lines is not only very expensive but also inconvenient.
