Importance of Sewer Line Inspections

Sewer lines can be a costly repair once they become damaged and will pose major problems to businesses and residential homes if not properly fixed. Even after repairs have been made it is important to ensure that the problem has truly been fixed. To avoid having to replace or repair damaged sewer lines after it’s too late, consider having the lines professionally inspected. This can save money and avoid the headache of having to address the problem after damage has been done.

Helpful Tips to Give Sewer Lines a Longer Life:

  1. Before purchasing any structure that is more than 40 years old, hire a professional sewer line inspector to make sure the sewer lines are still usable and intact. Sewer line repair can cost thousands of dollars, let us check before you buy.
  2. Keep any sort of tree, brush, bushes or other sorts of plants away from the sewer line as much as possible. As you can imagine, roots may grow into the line, causing pipes to burst or other damages.
  3. Be nice to your toilets (and garbage disposals)! Try to only flush toilet paper, any other hygiene products can easily get stuck and clog lines.
  4. Regular maintenance such as a rooter cleaning is recommended yearly, as well as a yearly inspection from a trained and specialized sewer line professional.
  5. Under no circumstance should you pour any sort of hot grease down your sink, toilet, or garbage disposal.
