Rising Trend of Sewer Inspections Before Home Buying
It’s a wise idea to get a home inspection, almost every prospective home buyer knows that. Yet more and more homeowners are now making the wise decision to schedule the optional sewer line TV video inspection.
It makes sense since this is one of the most important components of your home and even your property. Once you get into a home, that’s not when you want to find out there’s a major problem with the plumbing, especially the sewer line.
Top Reasons for Sewer Line Inspections
We’ve all experienced issues like slow or even clogged drains. That inconvenient problem that results usually from too much grease or hair escaping down the drain.
That’s nothing compared to the mess and hassle that can result from a major problem with your sewer line and here are some reasons you need a professional plumber to take a look.
- Many clogs aren’t actually clogs. The problem is that homeowners don’t realize that and end up pouring liquid drain cleaner into the mess and hope for the best. Unfortunately, what you can’t see is what can hurt you, or at least your plumbing. You could have a more serious existing issue, such as tree root intrusion.
- An inspection will help you find out if you have a cesspool. Older homes often have this and you don’t want to find out after you’ve already purchased the home. You really have to know what you’re getting into before you agree to purchase an older home with this outdated type of system.
- As well-meaning as your home inspector may be, they have a more general knowledge of the home overall. So, anything happening underground with the plumbing isn’t exactly their area of expertise. Protect yourself from potential disaster by being aware of what’s going on with your system.
