A sewer inspection is generally part of any effort you put towards annual home maintenance.
Sewer Line Issues
Sewer inspections are crucial because If something was to go wrong, plumbing issues can become costly over time.
Replacing sewer lines is no easy thing to do. There is a large amount of labor that takes place. Other then replacing the sewer lines, you’ll have to also redo your driveway and/or landscaping. This depends on where your system is located. Some sewer line clogs develop slowly.
Dealing With Insurance
Getting your insurance to assist in paying for the replacement means jumping through a few barriers. Unfortunately, there are times when insurance companies refuse a claim for damages.
They’ll deny the claim because you neglected your duty as a homeowner. Since most sewer line problems develop slowly, there are techniques that typically last for a long time. Sewer lines can last for around 40 years. Although, prevention is the best defense.
Why Inspections Are Necessary
Avoiding routine maintenance towards your own home means you’ll constantly get blockages, cracks, and other severe problems. Acting quickly to fix small problems protects you against really bad backups or other unpleasantries.
Routine maintenance will make your home last much longer. Thus, you won’t have to replace your entire system.
Tree Roots Can Cause Some Problems
Other than normal wear and tear, roots from trees and other plants can cause some bad problems. In fact, sewer pipes are incredible sources of water and nourishment for plant and tree life.
Roots in drains always seems to be a common plumbing problem. The roots can grab and get into the smallest hole or crack. Even from growing indoors. Regular inspections allow you to detect these issues prior to developing or getting worse.
