Sewer Gas Inspections
Suspect you have sewer pipe problems? Call us stat! In the world of homeownership, a suspiciously backed-up toilet can result in sheer chaos. What first seems like just a little water can actually be a costly sewer-line problem. To prevent headaches down the road, you can opt to have a sewer inspection when first buying your home — one of many optional, niche inspections that can save you money.
What is a sewer inspection?
Sewer Camera inspection will allow us to view the interior of the sewer lines and determine whether there are any issues, such as roots growing into your pipes. The camera can also reveal any cracks or breaks in the sewer line from the house to the street. Take note: Should there be something wrong with the line from the house to the street, it’s the homeowner, not the city, who must cover damages — possibly through homeowners' insurance, though.
We will be able to tell you what kind of material was used to construct the sewer line and whether that material meets today’s standards. Once armed with the inspector’s results, inform the seller of any issues and negotiate necessary repairs or replacement during the remainder of the buying contract’s inspection period.
But how can you tell if a sewer inspection is needed in the first place? The condition of a home’s sewer lines is usually not part of a regular home inspection. Adding a sewer inspection becomes particularly important for houses that are 20 years older or more. Not only can the pipes in these older homes erode and break down, but they’re also more susceptible to intrusion by roots, which makes sewer inspections critical for properties that are heavily landscaped.
If you have any suspicions about water issues, it’s best to get a sewer inspection. The extra test might cost you a few hundred dollars, but when you consider that the cost to replace a sewer line can run into the thousands, it’s money well-spent.
