When buying a new home, most homebuyers will have an inspection done of the new property. This includes the sewer lines and system as well. In older homes, a sewer inspection is even more important because the odds of a problem are much higher. Having a sewer inspection can bring peace of mind when buying a new home knowing that you won’t immediately face problems when you move in.

Foreign Invaders Can Ruin Your Pipes

No, I’m not talking about some UFO-based invasion. But, I am talking about things that don’t belong in your pipes. Over time, surrounding roots from plants can work their way into openings in your pipes that can disrupt the flow of water and sewage. Since these are not easily detected without a camera, there were often overlooked as a cause. By using a camera, plumbing professionals can find the offending plant and fix the problem then and there without having to resort to costly replacements.

Old Materials Aren’t Reliable

The older the system, the less reliable the materials are. Less dependable materials such as tar paper were commonly used in older homes that are no longer used today. They are not optimal for long-term use and deteriorate over time leaving your pipes susceptible to collapsing. By using a camera, our expert plumbing technicians can take a peek at what materials were used to install the pipes and make recommendations on new materials.
