The Role of Sewer Inspections in Preventing Costly Repairs

Your sewer system has the crucial job of safely transporting wastewater from your sinks, showers, toilets, dishwashers, and washing machines away from your home and property. When something goes wrong with this process, it becomes an urgent issue that must be identified and addressed immediately. Fortunately, Trident Inspection Group provides inspections that will ensure there isn’t a problem brewing under your home that could wreak havoc. Let’s explore sewer inspections’ role in preventing costly repairs in your soon-to-be new house.

Why You Need a Sewer Inspection

A home inspection will provide a detailed assessment of the condition of the home you wish to purchase, but it won’t tell you anything about the sewer line. Sewer lines are underground and not visible to home inspectors during a general home inspection. Over time, sewer systems can develop various problems that would result in costly repairs. You can either learn that you have an issue through a sewer line video inspection or through a sewer backing up into your home.

Common Sewer Line Problems

Issues with your sewer line don’t typically happen overnight and can eventually lead to significant damage if left unchecked. There could be blockages and clogs, tree root intrusion, pipe corrosion, broken pipes, cracks or sags in the pipeline, or leaks. Often, you will not know that you have a problem until it becomes an extensive repair. However, a sewer inspection will help you catch these problems early, allowing you to get the more minor repairs that you need before they turn into major repairs.
