If you’re considering buying a home, you will most likely have the home inspected before you buy it to make sure that it is in good condition and not going to cause you a lot of headaches later on down the road. Most home inspectors will not inspect the plumbing, which can be some of the most expensive problems homeowners have to deal with. Trusted Plumbing & Heating offers services for sewer line inspections where we run a camera down the pipes to determine the exact condition of all parts of the plumbing systems.
Lessons From a Sewer Inspection
There are many different things you can learn from a sewer inspection. One of the most important things you can learn is what material the pipes are made of. Older homes may have clay or concrete pipes that are highly susceptible to cracks and tree root invasions. Homes that were built during the 1970s could have plastic pipes, which can come apart or shift and cause sewer problems. A camera plumbing inspection can also determine if the sewer or septic system has corrosion, damage or clogs. If you find something wrong with the sewer or plumbing systems, you might be able to get a lower asking price.
