Do You Need a Sewer Line Inspection?

Our sewer line inspection services involve plumbers using specialized camera equipment to inspect the interior of your sewer pipes visually. This non-invasive process allows us to identify blockages, leaks, or damage within the sewer system. Issues like tree root intrusion, pipe corrosion, or misaligned pipes can be discovered early, preventing costly repairs down the line. 

We recommend scheduling a sewer line inspection when buying a new home or if you suspect sewer line problems. Accurate inspections allow us to make precise repairs, saving time and money while ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your sewer system.

Look for These Signs That You Need Sewer Line Repair

If you notice an area of your yard is particularly lush and green, it could be due to a leaking sewer line fertilizing the grass. A broken sewer line can lead to soil displacement, causing noticeable indentations or dips in your lawn or under pavers. In extreme cases, a leaking sewer line can cause damage to your home’s foundation or even lead to sinkholes. An unexplained increase in your water bill could also be due to a leak in your sewer line.

If you notice any of these signs, contact our plumbing professionals as soon as possible to inspect your sewer line and make any necessary repairs.

Some common signs that your sewer line might need repair include :

Frequent Drain Backups or Clogs

If you are consistently experiencing backups or clogs in your drains, especially in lower-level drains, this could indicate a problem with your sewer line.

Slow Drains

While a single slow drain can indicate a local blockage, if multiple drains throughout your home are draining slowly, this could be a sign of a problem with your sewer line.

Gurgling Noises from Your Drains or Toilets

Strange sounds can be a sign that there are blockages or breaks in your sewer line.

Sewage Backup in Your Toilet or Tub

This is a serious sign of a sewer line issue and should be addressed immediately.

Foul Odors

Unpleasant smells coming from your drains or in your yard can be a sign of a broken sewer line.
