If you are curious about the sewer line in your home, or would like to add this to your home inspection, give us a call.
SEWER LINE INSPECTION
In addition to checking normal plumbing functionality during a home inspection, we also conduct a sewer line inspection. Main sewer line repairs can be quite extensive and expensive so it is wise to get the line inspected before the purchase of a home.
To perform a sewer line inspection, a technician will insert a flexible rod with a high-resolution video camera on it, into the pipes. This will allow us to see inside the pipes as the rod is flexible and can bend around corners.
A MAIN SEWER LINE INSPECTION WILL CHECK FOR THE FOLLOWING:
Marquis Home Inspections recommends having a main sewer line inspection done if you are considering purchasing a home, if you have been having multiple plumbing issues or if you have recently had plumbing service performed. We recommend you reinspect the sewer line again to ensure that the line was properly repaired and cleaned.
What Is The Sewer Scope Inspection & Process Look Like?
During the sewer scope inspection, a technician will use a specially designed camera on a long cable to view the inside of your drains.
Depending on the access available and the company, a technician might start on your roof and enter a vent stack on the opposite side of where your sewer ends in order to access the sewer. This gives the inspector the best chance to find damage since the inspector can view the sewer from start to finish.
Signs You Need A Sewer Scope
If you currently own your home, consider looking for the following to see if you need a sewer scope inspection:
Water Back Ups – This could indicate damage or breakage to the sewer line, or a significant clog.
Large Trees & Roots – One of the most common causes of sewer pipe damage is the growth of roots around the pipe. Roots can grow around and constrict the pipe, breaking it, or grow into small cracks in the pipe, clogging it or causing leaks.
Older Homes (Pre-1970) – Older homes are more likely to have sewers that are degraded and damaged.
Structural Movement – If the soil around a house seems to have shifted, the pipe may have been affected. If it has moved, it could have broken or become bent and damaged, which may require a costly repair.
Lush Patches Of Grass – This is a common sign of a septic or sewer leak. Given its contents, sewer water is actually a powerful fertilizer that can help encourage plant growth. If you see a suspiciously healthy-looking area of the yard, especially if the rest of the lawn seems to be less lush or green, you should be suspicious.
Rodents or Pests – Pests and rodents can live in sewer systems.
Buying A Home?
We recommend getting a sewer scope inspection whenever you are purchasing a home, but especially when the home was built before 1970. This is because homes older than 1970 may have Orangeburg or Cast Iron Pipes lines.
These drain lines are too old to be used today and usually need replacement. They can suffer from root damage, rust, degradation, and ultimately cause backups or sewer smells in the home.
