Important Questions To Ask When You Are Buying a Home
When you’re fired up about a home, remember that an inspection is in order. Typical inspections do not include a sewer line or septic system inspection and homeowners are not required to disclose any information apart from if there is a septic system or municipal lines.
Be sure to ask when the last inspect was done if everything was found according to code. Regular sewer line inspections are important to ensure that the system is up to code or needs to be upgraded due to new requirements. If an upgrade is in order, you can negotiate it into the price of the home.
Knowing the water capacity of the current system is also helpful. All systems have a set capacity. If you will be using a great quantity of water, you will need to either upgrade the sewer system or plan on using less water.
If the current sewer system is over 25 years old, an upgrade may be in order. Be sure to negotiate this into the sale price of your home. If the system is younger ask how well it has been maintained and service. Don’t hesitate to ask for the name of the septic service that was used to maintain and contact them about the shape of your sewer system.
What Does a Sewer Inspection Look Like?
There are different methods and steps that are part of a sewer inspection. It will ultimately depend on how comprehensive you wish the inspection to be. Most common inspection services include using a dye test, an open pit test, and a camera sewer line inspection.
A dye test uses a fluorescent dye. The dye is added into the septic system. If the dye is then seen in the ground above the drain field it is indicative of a failing septic system.
The Open Pit test pumps out the tank and removes the dirt covering both the tank and distribution line. Mirrors and cameras are then used to inspect its condition and diagnose any problems that may be seen.

Spending this amount of money is only a fraction of what it would cost to replace the whole system. Wouldn’t you rather know the condition of the sewer system, rather than be faced with the unpleasant surprise of a required upgrade after the purchase is complete?
A quality sewer inspection will eliminate guesswork and let you know exactly what is going on with the sewer system. Our camera inspections use state of the art equipment to physically see the problem, ensure everything is up to code, and give you negotiating/bargaining power.
Root Intrusion is a Serious Problem
Old homes, in particular, are in need of a sewer inspection. Homes over 20 years old may have severe root intrusion from nearby trees and shrubs. The roots of plants can travel great distances to find moisture for nourishment. Your sewer and drain lines are the perfect candidate because they provide moisture constantly. The roots enter the pipes and continue to grow, forming a serious clog.
Some old homes have Orangeburg pipes. These pipes are made out of tar paper and fall apart over time. Knowing this can save you a lot of hassle and disappointment down the road.
