This can be one of the most important aspects of inspecting a potentially new home for yourself or your family. Clogged, corroded or improperly installed plumbing lines can cost you thousands of dollars later on down the line. It is imperative that sewer lines are checked by qualified professionals who know what they are doing. The best course of action is to include a detailed and professional sewer line inspection by Marietta Home Inspections, ensuring that this issue won’t come back to bite you long after you think you have scored the perfect home.
Why have sewers inspected
Most home inspectors won’t bother to check the sewage system because it isn’t visible and most new home owners are unaware of the magnitude and important that sewer lines have in their lives. Home inspection professionals often lack the certification or equipment to check even if they wanted to, which makes it more difficult for potential homeowners to properly juggle all the different inspection services needed to adequately inform themselves about the home they are about to buy. We highly recommend you use Marietta Home Inspection to schedule a professional and detailed sewer inspection of your home.
Visual inspection by camera
It’s not nearly as difficult as it used to be to inspect a sewer line during a detailed home inspection. We use a special camera to penetrate deep into the lateral sewer lines to check for plumbing issues that can arise later on in the future. We are looking for corrosion, blockages, or cracks that may have formed by root intrusion from nearby trees. You can even see the process yourself as we do it since we can show the video feed live as the camera makes its way through the plumbing through the house.
Sewage line repairs can be extraordinarily expensive to pull off, hence why you want to make sure that the home you may be potentially buying has sound plumbing and sturdy sewage lines that won’t cause you problems later on down the line. We think that getting an expert sewer inspection is one of the most important aspects of the home inspection process. Don’t leave these things to fate- footing the bill for a burst pipe can cost you thousands of dollars to fix. Blocked sewage lines can be a total disaster for new home owners.
Sewer line inspection is relatively cheap
Compared to the cost of getting sewer lines repaired if there is a catastrophic problem, getting a professional and quality sewer line inspection is relatively cheap. You don’t want to go through the hassle and headache of having all of your toilets stopped up and smelly water spilling onto carpets and filling up crawl spaces because you neglected to get a proper sewer line inspection. We heartily recommend you nip this problem in the bud before buying a new home and using our quality and expert sewer line inspection professional service to make sure your dream home is the one for you.
