Have you ever thought that you may need to scan your sewer more than just when buying or selling a home? It’s an essential part of overall home upkeep. As a homeowner, you are responsible for the sewer line in your home until it connects to the city line.
So when should you scan your sewer?
Annually if you have older pipes.
Older sewer lines are more likely to be affected by tree roots and other problems that can develop slowly over time.
If you frequently find you have clogs, backups, or slow drains.
These are indicators that there may be an underlying sewer issue that only a professional scan can spot.
Every 1-2 years for routine maintenance.
Regardless of the age of your sewer pipes, it is best to check them every few years to help spot potential issues sooner rather than later.
When moving in or out.
Of course, if you are moving in or out of a home, you should always get everything inspected from top to bottom - all the way down to the sewer. A sewer camera inspection can give you some added peace of mind before you sign on the dotted line.
Scanning your sewer is a cost-effective method for diagnosing problems within a drain, especially a large drain like a main sewer line. We can more accurately identify and locate blockages or damage using video equipment to look inside the drain pipe. Our sewer line video inspections will provide you with a "walk-through," leading from the trap, down through the sewer line, and up to any obstructions.
A sewer video inspection will help alleviate any concerns or potential costs down the road. Find more about our sewer scan services here.
