The Importance of Performing a Sewer Inspection

Before moving into your home, you likely had an inspection performed to ensure that it is a safe living space for you and your family. However, many people tend to overlook one of the most important systems: the sewer line. A home inspection generally does not include an examination of the sewer line because it is buried underground. The plumbers at Pride Plumbing of Rochester can perform sewer camera inspections, which is a service that is better to do as a precaution rather than after a plumbing disaster.

What Can a Sewer Camera Inspection Find?sewer inspection

  • Tree root infiltrations: This is common with old pipes. Tree roots try finding water sources as they grow. If the find a crack in your sewer pipe, they will grow into it in order to get the water inside.
  • Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipes: Using a sewer camera, a technician will be able to see if the pipe has collapsed, shifted, or become damaged.
  • Pipe sagging or bellied sewer lines: When the sewer pipes begin to sag, waste gets caught which results in multiple blockages.
  • Major blockages: Even if your pipes are in perfect condition, after years of flushing things that belong in the trash, there can be a buildup of grease, paper, and other junk.

Sewer cleanouts make plumbing much more efficient. They are sections of a pipe that can be opened with a wrench in case there is a clog. They can be installed inside or outside of your home. However, installing an outdoor cleanout may be the better choice for easier access, maintenance, and repair.
