Reasons You May Need a Sewer Line Inspection
Did you know some townships ask for a sewer lateral inspection before a home is able to be sold? A sanitary sewer lateral carries your wastewater from your showers, sinks, floor drains, toilets, and more to the public sanitary sewer main that is typically in the street. Maintaining a lateral is the homeowners’ responsibility similar to driveways and roofs. A sewer inspection should be a mandatory part of any house inspection checklist. If you are contemplating what inspections to get when purchasing your new home, do not overlook the sewer line. In fact, getting a sewer inspection is one of the most important home inspection tips for first-time buyers.
Sewer line inspections are cheap, but sewer repairs can be extremely expensive. If you opt not to perform a sewer line inspection, typically by the time you realize you need to repair or replace your sewer line, a major problem has already occurred. The symptoms of needing a sewer line repair are fairly obvious, but even if you are unsure, a sewer line inspection is a good idea to ensure peace of mind.
If you have a soggy yard even when it hasn’t rained, that is a good sign you have an underground piping issue. If you have a water main problem, you would also likely experience a severe drop in water pressure. If it is a sewer line, there would also be an odor associated with the moisture.
Slow or Clogged Drains
A blocked sewer line can sometimes be discovered by noticing your toilets and other drains are not clearing as quickly as usual. A slow or seemingly clogged drain may be as simple as the piping beneath your sink or other fixtures, but if you have an issue in multiple places, your sewer line is usually to blame.
Buying Or Selling A Home
If you’re in the market for a new home, a sewer line inspection is one of the best things you can do before you decide to buy. This is especially true with older homes, where the lines may be weak or damaged. Many areas now also require a sewer inspection with every home sale.
Common Reasons for Sewer Line Repair
Knowing what to look for is important but understanding the causes of water and sewer line issues is as well. Because your water and sewer lines are underground, many factors affect their health. Proper installation plays a major part in your plumbing’s vulnerability to potential issues.
If you have trees on your property, the roots will always grow toward moisture. Your underground pipes are a natural source of water, especially if there is even a small leak. Once roots come in contact with your water or sewer lines, they will wrap around the pipes. They can break into the pipes causing clogging and a general breakdown of the system as a whole.
Flushing non-biodegradable items and other debris can simply clog your sewer pipes. Paper towels, diapers, wipes, cooking oil, and other items can become lodged in your sewer lines and cause backups throughout your home. They often get caught near your drains but if they make it further down the line, larger issues can ensue.
Many underground sewer lines are made of terracotta or cast iron. They are very susceptible to rust and corrosion. Calcium and magnesium can build up over years of regular use. It’s very hard to determine where corrosion may be causing your pipes to weaken but a video pipe inspection can often spot the issue.
Unfortunately, if your underground pipes were not installed properly, they may not be below the frost line. If they are not deep enough underground, standing water can freeze and cause your pipes to expand and contract, causing cracks or other issues.
